Mini Book Review: City of Death by James Goss


My rating: 4 out of 5 stars 

The Doctor and his companion, Romana, plan on enjoying their holiday in Paris and relaxing as much as they can. But, as is inevitable, they land smack in the middle of trouble. The pair get wrapped up in a plot to steal the Mona Lisa. tailed by an undercover detective who seems to think they’re responsible. But who’s really to blame? Is it the crack in time that’s causing so many strange things to happen? Or does the super wealthy Count and his basement laboratory have something to hide? 

If they don’t figure it out quickly, the Mona Lisa won’t be the only thing that’s in danger. 

I’m not sure why I was so hesitant to read this book when I first picked it up, but I’m glad I did because I really enjoyed it. (Class, today’s lesson: Don’t judge a book by inexplicable preconceived notions…Joey, stop kicking the back of Sarah’s chair.)

This was such a fun book. It takes place during the Tom Baker era, complete with his scarf, sidekick Romana, and robotic dog K-9. All the elements of the show were there: the sticky situations,  the Doctor’s silly quirks, the plot twists, the alien threat to destroy the planet. Anyone who is a fan of the tv show would love this book.
