Salt of the Earth
By: Trudi Canavan
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Third Doctor and Jo Grant arrive for a well-deserved holiday of sun and 'blokarting' on a salt lake in Australia in 2028. Weird sculptures adorn the landscape - statues carved from the salt. People have been leaving them in the salt lakes for years - but these look different. Grotesque, distorted figures twisted in pain. They don't last long in the rain and the wind, but they're just made of salt... Aren't they?
We follow the 3rd Doctor and his assistant, Jo as they attempt to figure out why people in a remote area of Australia are disappearing. Could it have any connection to the new salt statues that keep popping up?
This is more of a novella then a full-length novel, but every bit of Doctor Who! I haven't watched much of the classic episodes, but this makes me want to check out the 3rd and give it a try.
It was a nice, light read. It was the perfect distraction from my 14 hour car ride!
