John Templeton Smith was Desmond Bagley’s protégé and his scorching novel “White Lie” is still riding high in the Amazon Kindle charts. It’s the first part of a trilogy introducing character John Winter, a hero in the mould of Jack Reacher, perhaps shorter, slightly older, but just as deadly. Oh, and he was created a decade or so earlier. Kindle price just £0.99 or free with Kindle Unlimited. Lockdown is unpleasant but why not make the best of it?
