The first review of Simon Higgins’ gripping novel, Tomodachi: The Forest of the Night, has just come out, and it’s excellent! It’s published in Reading Time. Here’s an excerpt:
Simon Higgins, a former police office and private investigator specializing in murder cases, and one of the world’s best martial artists (in the sword art of Iaido), is as it happens also a novelist of meticulous and respectful detail. His new novel is set in a fanciful historical Japan, and it comes with a long glossary at the end which introduces readers to many terms that are important to Japan’s history, its culture and the popularization of art forms such as Manga and Anime.
