    I know Robert Goddard for his captivating historical thrillers.
    Harry Barnett series was the first I read, and the characters and the plot really caught my attention. The twists and turns kept me suspecting the wrong people to the very end.
    Goddard is so talented in both setting the scenes and sketching the characters mental state. So far, the books I’ve read are real page-turners and have kept me at the edge of the seat.
    The Ways of The World is an excellent spy story set in the aftermath of the Great War. The book is above average in the spectrum of espionage fiction.
    ‘Into the Blue’ was a suspenseful adult puzzle with clues originating from places like a comment someone made or pictures on the walls. Goddard continues to be on the list of the most talented authors even to date.

    Robert Goddard won me over with ‘Into The Blue.’ I liked his previous novels. But they were all historical mysteries and thrillers, and I couldn’t figure out whether or not my interest in history had enhanced my enjoyment. Part of me was convinced that Goddard wouldn’t be so appealing to me if you took my affinity for history away.

    But then ‘Into The Blue’ came along. It was the first Goddard novel to be set in contemporary times. To my surprise, I loved it. It had all the aspects that had made the previous books so compelling, including a carefully paced mystery and several noteworthy twists.

    So clearly, Goddard is a great writer, regardless of whether he’s writing historical or contemporary mysteries.
