As if from a bookseller’s dream a terrorist plot to plant explosives at the London Olympic stadium is exposed happens just as a book comes out recently with that as a theme. John Goodwin’s The Last Olympiad is better than the facts though. Of course it is: I helped edit one of its early drafts. I met John in Cyprus on a UK Authors UKAway writing week in 2008 and again in 2009. I can recommend it as an action-packed read – and topical!
