The Mystery of Doe Eyes


“Marion died here, didn't she? That's why she haunts us and why she's with us now and in our dreams, and it's going to get worse.” A thrilling paranormal adventure, which will appeal to fans of adult fantasy fiction. Strong on atmosphere: set in a hinterland of tidal-creeks, reed-beds and ancient ruins.

Theia is on a mission. Already down on her luck, she returns to her old ways by resorting to the world's oldest profession, but when a client steals her money, she is determined to get it back at all costs. Her only clue lies on a computer file, left behind by her client when he fled – seemingly terrified by someone, or something unknown. Complications arise when both the ruins of a haunted priory, reminiscent of a tale from childhood told by her adoptive mother long ago, and the ghost of Marion Mackinley, a beautiful Edwardian stage actress, get in her way. As Theia's troubled past begins to catch up with her, she calls upon her lover, Sam Layton, the renowned psychic medium for help. Together, they are drawn into the ghost's past and become embroiled in her world of espionage, lovers trysts and murder amidst the maelstrom of the First World War. As events unfold, Layton realises he's out of his depth, and is forced to admit darker forces may be at work...

What lies behind The Mystery of Doe Eyes? And who – or what, is stalking them when they close their eyes at night and dream?

This was a book that was different then any other books that I have read. I thought it was an interesting mix of paranormal and suspense that had me wondering how it would end. The character Theia was an interesting mix of naïve and experienced. The book takes you through several different emotions and scenes that leave you question past and future, Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read this and write a honest review.

Who is the mysterious woman in the photograph? Why are ghosts haunting Theia, and what does a story from drawings she loved in her childhood have to do with it all? You won't want to miss this thrilling adventure.

I was born in Leicestershire and worked in the financial retail industry for nearly 40 years.

I draw inspiration for my writing through a passion for history, both ancient and modern, as well as walking and photographing the English landscape.

It's not just ghosts and things that go bump in the night that fire my imagination though; now that mankind is reaching out across the Solar System and beyond, maybe Sci-fi will be my next genre to write about...

And when I take time out from all of the above, I follow Leyton Orient FC and indulge in all of their woes!
