June Books 16) The Left-Handed Hummingbird, by Kate Orman

This New Adventure takes the Doctor, Ace and Benny back and forth in time to crucial points like the murder of John Lennon and the sinking of the Titanic, on a trail originating in Mexico in the fifteenth and also twentieth centuries. There are consciousness-altering drugs and prose which reminded me of Ian McDonald, and a satisfying resolution to the pursuit of a mostly non-corporeal baddie. Interesting to read it while in the middle of listening to the latest Big Finish audios with the Seventh Doctor, Ace and their new team-mate.
