Joan Mackenzie from Whitcoulls reviews the following books on The Long Lunch today:

Ultimatum by Frank Gardner.
Thriller, set in Iran……British Mi6 guy gets sent there to try and infiltrate the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who are believed to have nuclear ambition. Coincides with the visit to Iran of a prominent British government minister, whom the Guards kidnap and the race is on to find him. It’s great, in part because of the location and an insight into the way of life there.

Ma’am Darling: 99 Glimpses of Princess Margaret  by Craig Brown.
Written in 99 chapters (some of them very short) this is a fascinating insight into her life. She was difficult and controlling, but also had great, if very barbed, wit. She was always the also-ran, alongside her sister, Queen Elizabeth who has such a sense of duty and doing the right thing whereas Margaret just ran wild.

James Cook: The Voyages by William Frame and Laura Walker.
Large format, loads of illustrations, maps and photos. The twenty-fifth of August 2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the departure of the Endeavour from Plymouth, England, and the first of three voyages by James Cook that would nearly complete the map of the world.
