IN SUMMARY - Robert Smith?
A surprisingly mature work. Bullet Time succeeds in part because it continually underplays its hand - not naming the Tzun adds to the atmosphere while not being intrusive and the possible fate of a major character is handled with surprising subtlety. McIntee's action scenes shine and this book really suits the NA seventh Doctor. A winner.
