Harry Barnett is shocked to learn that he has a son--David Venning, a brilliant mathematician, now languishing in hospital in a diabetic coma.  And this is only the first and smallest of the mysteries he is about to encounter. David's condition is attributed to an accident or suicide attempt.  But Harry discovers that his mathematical notebooks are missing from the hotel room where he was found and two other scientists employed by the same American forecasting institute have died in suspicious circumstances.  Driven on by the slim hope of saving the son he never knew he had, Harry goes in search of the truth and finds himself entangled in several different kinds of conspiracy--none of which he ought to stand the slightest chance of defeating. Harry Barnett was the flawed hero of Robert Goddard's earlier novel, the award-winningInto the Blue.  But nothing in that experience prepared him--or the reader--for the baffling conundrums and heart-stopping suspense ofOut of the Sun From the Paperback edition.… (more)

Harry Barnett, No. 2 ( )
  picardyrose | Mar 2, 2007 |
Robert Goddard is a master of the mystery genre. Beware - if you read one of his books, you'll probably want to read them all 13 or 14 off the reel.

This story is so far the only Goddard novel to see the return of the hero, Harry Barnett, from an earlier book (Into The Blue). HB is one of the best drawn of RG's characters, though many of his heroes are from the same mould: middle-aged British males with failed careers/marriages thrown by circumstance into the lion's den, where they demonstrate their true mettle.
