Lethbridge-Stewart: Mind of Stone
by Iain McLaughlin
(Series 3, Book 3)

Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart has been remanded to Woodworms Scrubs Prison, and his team have no idea why. Secrecy surrounds his case, but his team barely have a chance to process anything before they are sent on a mission to Egypt.

Why does it seem like Lethbridge-Stewart is going out of his way to court trouble from the prison's most notorious inmates? And what does it have to do with well-known gangster Hugh Godfrey?

In the Ptolemaic Museum of Cairo, Anne Travers and her team are trying to uncover the mystery surrounding some very unusual stone statues.

One thing connects these events; the cargo transported by Colonel Pemberton and Captain Knight in August 1968.

A Really Good Read!
09 October 2020
This is my all time favourite Lethbridge-Stewart novel. The Brig is in prison and only a couple of people know why. Most of his team have no idea what he has done to end up there. In the mean time the rest of the team are acting undercover to solve the mystery of soilders who have been turned into stone statues. In prison the Brigadier is seen at his best, a trained soilder who stands up to the thugs and bullies, in fact he seems to be looking for trouble. Ok, it pinches (it's more then tipping a hat to) some the characters from Porridge, a classic UK sitcom set in a prison, but it does it well. This story is well constructed, the characters developed in a believable way. The Alien we eventually meet is original and well developed. This is a well paced story, that makes a really good read!

I love this one becuase it focuses a lot on the Brig and his sense on humour and sarcasm are fantasic in this book. There are a lot of funny moments and the plot was also enjoyable. Defiently a 10/10
