I'm 'just into it' and liking it already. The 'entry and set up' of the story and characters are well crafted and now I'm ready for 'the action'. I'll return with further thoughts.

The demands of Summer 'farmer' have waylaid me from my normal reading habits, but I've managed to get in an hour late in the evening before my brain ceases to function, hence my delay in reporting my thoughts on Alaric's latest The Scent of Corruption.

This 'yarn' is a prime example of why I've personally classified Alaric Bond as a 'new classics' author of HNF. His characters show both believable form and recognizable traits, as they interact as a homogeneous 'crew' in the performance of their duties, both routine and extraordinary. The author has woven into his story enough 'hooks' to keep it both fresh and his reader unsure of exactly what might happen next (even the real meaning of his 'title' is left to question).
The reader is treated to various 'actions' of distinctly different natures during a relatively brief span of time, but all still acceptable and believable in the scheme of things. This is very good 'classic HNF' that has me waiting for the next chapter in the fighting sails series.

It's in my queue, and I will start it after finishing the new Biddlecomb, which is a real ripsnorter!
