October Books 10) Silhouette, by Justin Richards

Having been disappointed with the first Twelfth Doctor novel I read, I can reassure you that Justin Richards (who I regard as New Who's Terrance Dicks, in terms of his output of books and general ability to produce readable prose) is on form here, with the Doctor and Clara dropping in on the Paternoster Gang, who are investigating mysterious deaths linked to a carnival. Strax gets some particularly good lines (I see Jenny/Vastra fans complaining that we don't get enough of them, so be warned) and there are also some great moments of horror, pitched well for the target age group. And we get cameo appearances from the other Doctors (or an alien pretending to be them) as well. Great fun.
