Fancypants42’s #CBRV Review #21: Mind the Gap by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon

mindgapbigMind the Gap by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon is my second outing with the pair this year. I first reviewed Chamber of Ten in January, and enjoyed this one just as much. It was an exciting romp through a hidden world in the midst of London that was somewhat unexpected. I really couldn’t figure out where it was going or what the main “thing” was going to turn out to be. All I knew (from the cover and for most of the book) was that Jazz was on the run after the murder of her mother, that men were after her and even she didn’t know why.

She befriends a new family underneath the city, refugees from life really. They take her in but she can’t hide forever. She isn’t supposed to trust anyone, but can’t get answers that way. She has to talk to SOMEONE or she’ll never find out what happened and why the men are after her.

There is a good deal of suspense and I found my eyeballs wanting to skip ahead a few times just to satisfy myself that it’d be alright in just a second. I didn’t, though. I was good. The two authors have a really easy-going writing style when they collaborate. I like Christopher Golden on his own just fine, but the partnership works well with these urban intrigue sort of tales. It’s part Brit, part Yank and all pleasure.

I have a few more of Golden’s books on my list but need to pick up the other entry into the Hidden Cities series, of which Mind the Gap was a part. I could easily devour the rest of Golden’s books, especially the ones he wrote with Lebbon.
