Reactions and Reviews

Maximum Provocation by Tavaran is based during the 1985 miner's strike. Doyle is sent off to infiltrate the picket lines and find out who is organizing the pickets and orchestrating the strikes and mayhem while Bodie is sent to romance Veronica, the spoilt only daughter of the Regional Manager.The nature of Bodie's assignment creates some tension between him and Doyle as they are in a long term relationship, a fact Cowley is aware of and none too pleased about. The story goes along at a fair old pace and the plot holds together quite nicely. I was less than convinced at the frantic coupling between the pair of them in less than private places and while I think Doyle is drop dead gorgeous I find it hard to imagine Bodie thinking of him as his 'pre-Raphaelite Angel'!
