Sinema 2 by Rod Glenn - Kindle Version

The Yin & the Han.

This is a sequel novel to Rod Glenn's 2007 novel Sinema: The Northumberland Massacre. I'd recommend you read that prior to reading Sinema 2.  Although the two books can be read seperately it'll give you a better insight into the character of Han Whitman.  Not to mention that fact that it is also a great book.

Han Whitman returns! He shows a duality to his nature that is deliciously orchestrated by the author. There's a little something in here for everyone. I enjoyed spotting the film lines amongst the grisly deeds. There was even a red dwarf reference included if I’m not mistaken. There is no doubt that the author manages to create a fast paced story, with several plot strands leading into one another. He also manages to do it with humour and heart.  This is not just another soulless serial killer novel.

 The chapter headings all had quotes and adapted film covers making it the most illustrated kindle novel I have read.  The end result is a very slick and polished novel indeed. A greatly enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone.  I read this one quickly because I simply could not put it down.


  1. I'd read Sinema first If you haven't already Paul. I won it in a Byker books competition and really enjoyed it. Very well thought out and Rod is a cracking story teller.
