WOW quite a read! wish I read sooner. Awesome thriller! Is this a debut novel? IF so bravo!
by Laura Duquette
Born in 1943, the author had a tainted yet revering upbringing. At the age of three the Celtic colour of love in his mother’s eyes still made him believe despite the tragic death of his father. In 1966 the long arm of the law liberated the author from the hardship prevalent in Ebbw Vale, Gwent. During forty years’ experience with the police he encountered darker shades of life lurking in the futility of riotous behaviour, terrorism and bloody homicide. Later in his career he introduced national projects in liaison with the local Crown Persecution Service and Magistrates Court Centre. Meanwhile, his addictive personality watched as the increase in ‘Decree Nisi’ spiralled to a new level of harm. Finally hope in the guise of Joanne reached out for the alcoholic’s hand and showed him the way to reality, friendship and love. In retirement he thought about writing a novel. An eerie demanding voice whispered in his ear, it told him to reject any safe way of writing, don’t follow the crowd. An unforgiving past pointed him in the right direction, tell it like it is, treat the reader with respect. The author lives with his wife in the heart of Celtic Mythology in Carmarthen, the birthplace of Merlin the Magician.
