"Stirring stuff"This would undoubtedly make an excellent TV series. The action spans the decades either side of the dawn of the twentieth century. Far from being a stylized historical novel of manners, this has something for everyone. Action, adventure, romance, a whiff of the supernatural, mystery, tragedy and a rhythm that keeps you interested throughout. Well-researched, with a full cast of believable characters; some to love, others to hate. What more could the viewer ask for?
This was a very good book how ever I do wish the author had done more to make it more interesting. I look forward to reading more of this author's work.
Though this is a debut novel it is obvious from the quality of the writing that the author is an experienced writer. The action moves at a fast pace beginning in 1912 Sheffield with the capture of a thief falling from a roof and finishing in post war Ecclesfield. In between there is WW1 action in Mesopotamia where the battle is against the Turks rather than the Germans. Initially I found the book a bit difficult to get into perhaps because quite a number of characters are introduced at once. How [...]
I liked it but it did seem to have an identity crisis which had an impact on flow of the novel.(I'm a mystery. wait, I am a paranormal book I am a WWI dramaI'm the English Patientoh I am a mystery).
This is a very enjoyable story. It's one to really immerse yourself in - Walter's dangerous and exotic life combined with Mary's spooky experiences and shocking discoveries provides a lot of intrigue and entertainment for those who like the romance and adventure genres alike.
1912, Sheffield, England. Constable Reynolds was in pursuit of Street Arab (Toe Rag). Mary O’Driscoll (25+, field nurse) accompanied Robert Elliott (Court of Assize missionary) to the jail cells. Sergeant Drake (Constable) had some explaining to Mary about Street Arab’s injuries. Mary later went to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Dr. Tom Sharpe (general surgeon, London, England) was teaching at St. Thomas’s.1915, Sheffield, England. Robert Elliott (husband/father, missionary), Ann Elliott (w [...]
Enthralling, that's the right description for this book. A strange, but compelling mix of mystery, romance, history and sci-fi, it will keep you up all night, telling yourself: one more page, only one scene more, just this one chapter and I'll go to sleepBrilliantly writen, fast paced, with fully fledged characters and an intriguing plot, this is a truly recommended reading.
Below are some reviews and comments received by the author via email, through his website or :Epic tale of intrigue, mystery, love (and lust), violence, war, espionage and revenge.By Daz Nugent - Verified Purchase"What a great read. It sets off at 100mph when we are introduced to the mystery character (the Street Arab) being chased by the Police. When it slows down we are presented with an intriguing love puzzle (be careful with this).Chris Brookes cleverly keeps you in 1912 and then through th [...]
Great read! Loved the twists and turns in the plot - none of which I saw coming! Loved the writing which so fitted the style of the pre WW1 era. Highly recommend this author and can't wait to read the next one!
Wow!It took a little time to get used to the English language, but it was worth it. This is the story of a young man. Trying not to give away the entire book. A young nurse helps him, strongly attracted. The end let's understand, he was real. Danger, physics, love.
This story starts out OK. The out of body experiences are sometimes interesting but as the story progresses they become increasingly hard to believe. I couldn't even finish this book
Wonderful bookFound the author by chance, but once i read the first chapter couldn't stop reading, can't wait to read the rest of the series
It would be much better without so much given away by bad guy POV. With all revealed, it tends to drag a good bit. Low 3 star
I was first introduced to this book when the author Chris came to visit my book group, it appealed to me not least because of it's setting being my hometown but I was also interested in the fact it was based on a true story of a mysterious man named Walter. I'm not going to include any spoilers in this review as I want people to read my review and in turn read the book. The novel is set in the early 1900s and opens with an exciting police chase across the rooftops of Sheffield. I found the openi [...]
I wont go into the plot as others will do that and I just don't think that a too depth of a plot review is ever needed. The book was well written and I found the paly between the characters believable. The preview I had received got me interested in the entire book. I like a little what I call sci-fi along with a bit of romance. Once I got the entire book I started reading and thought I was going to be a little let down. I WASNT! It sped along at a nice pace. I pride myself on being able to see [...]
Marvelous historical, crime and paranormal ficton story, loosely based around two real people; Sheffields first probation officer and Walter; lovable rogue and offender, who led such an adventurous life. Real events of both their lives are incorporated into the story. I particularly liked this unusual and clever coverage of a section and period of history I have never come across before. The depiction of Mary's visions sent chills up my spine every time. It maintains the 1912-1916 period feel th [...]
This book definitely had its pros and cons. And unfortunately for me I found that the cons overall tended to out way the pros. When I first looked into reading this book I was drawn in by the imagery that the time period created, and was excited that it seemed to be a mystery that Sherlock Holmes would solve. The story was rather interesting and there was an intriguing mystery to it, however, I did not expect it to be so dark and at points rather disturbing. I grew fond of some of characters, an [...]
A very well-written book, even though it was not what I expected. It was labeled a Mystery, but I would not classify it as such. At times it reminded me of a Sherlock Holmes story, at times a Charles Todd story, and at other timeswho knows?But, no matter how you classify it, it was very engaging, well-written, had great characters and was very enjoyable (in spite of some of the darkness). I look forward to reading more by the Author.I think that is about as good a recommendation as I can give!
I received a free arc of this in exchange for an honest review.I found this book very gripping from start to finish. There is plenty of mystery and intrigue, and the characters are very real. They go through quite a few highs and lows, and grow stronger and wiser as a result. There is also a bit of mysticism sprinkled here and there throughout the book. I really like the author's authentic portrayal of a bygone era. I grew quite fond of the main characters, but was a little disappointed when one [...]
I would give this book 3 1/2 stars. It was a nice little historical mystery with interesting characters. I thought the instance of incest was a bit over-the-top and didn't really add anything compelling to the plot. Given the time period it was set in, the fact that the two were attracted to one other (albeit unwittingly) would have been shocking enough without the actual commission of the act. But the plot was interesting with enough twists and turns to keep the story engaging. An entertaining [...]
Very heart warning story, truly enjoyed.This was a good mystery story with a very unusual story line involving a very immoral clergyman and with plenty of eerie things happening that didn't involve the disgusting clergyman as well. I think I would recommend this book.
Very Good ReadThis book was an amazing adventure all the way through the book. I couldn't put it down!! Excellent read and and excellent story.
A good read overall with interesting characters but issues with the writing style stopped me from enjoying it more
FantasticGave 5 stars.uld not put the book down. Felt swept away and apart of story as watching everything unfold. Amazing
