DEAF WISH

You walk out on your wife and family sixteen years ago and you expect

them to welcome you back with open arms?  Don't be naive. How many

lives have your selfish desires destroyed? How many more people have yet

to feel your hot breath on the back of their necks? It's not just the daggers

in their eyes you need to worry about. You might not hear the swish of the

blade but you'll feel the cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars

An engaging thriller

By worldly traveller on 18 May 2017

I thought this thriller was well-written and relevant to today's political and social issues in France and England, involving terrorism, fundamentalism, revenge, international conspiracy and to add to the mix, a secret language/code which ties the ritualistic murders together.

With the secret code, it reminded me a bit of "The Da Vinci Code" in some ways, but I felt this novel had a more contemporary, realistic feel to it which drew me into the story.

I think this book would make a really good film!

Recommended.

I couldn't put this book down. Excellent narrative, as the reader is taken on a journey across the globe. The characters are diverse, and the story line believable which adds to the suspense. Great book, well worth a read!!!

I found the plot fascinating and the concept that the motives behind acts of terror could be organised in such a manner, frightening. The characters - some larger than life - are well drawn and the story line moves along at a fast pace. This is one case where I hope fact is not stranger than fiction. A very enjoyable read.

A DOZEN DO/DON'T HINTS ON WRITING YOUR FIRST NOVEL

At the Hursley Park Book Fair I was asked to participate in a discussion session on writing techniques for the aspirant novel writer.  In doing so, I prepared a brochure covering a dozen of the most important pieces of advice that I have received from the professional editors who have helped me over the years. If you would like a hard copy, fill in the contact form. Otherwise, the detail was kindly reproduced on Natasha Orme's very interesting blog. You can find the  hints on http://www.natashaorme.com/ I hope you find it useful.
