FRIDAY'S "FORGOTTEN" BOOKS AND MORE: the links to the reviews: 9 August 2019

This week's books and more, unfairly (or sometimes fairly) neglected, or simply those the reviewers below think you might find of some interest (or, infrequently, you should be warned away from); certainly, most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles...if I've missed your review or someone else's, please let me know in comments. A good week for Westlake and Sanxay Holding, and a definite warning away from one filial sequel...
