Cricket & Intrigue

Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Riding towards the truth

Adele Geras enjoys the mix of cricket and political intrigue in Kate Thompson's The Fourth Horseman:

Laurie's mother, Mrs McAllister, is a sports physiotherapist working with the England cricket team. She's away most of the time, in New Zealand, or Shasakstan (the fictitious state Thompson has invented which has more than a passing resemblance to Pakistan). But it is from her that the novel gets its wonderfully entertaining cricketing theme.
