Book Review: L.C.Tyler's 'A Masterpiece of Corruption', Historical Crime Fiction.

Image
‘A Masterpiece of Corruption’ is reluctant spy John Grey’s second foray into the twisted machinations of a treacherous and dangerous power struggle. If you like historical mystery, you will enjoy this journey into post Civil War England – a time when the ailing Lord Protector Cromwell ruled and Charles II plotted his return from exile. Imagine living in a society where people have to change allegiance to survive, a time when you can’t trust even your nearest and dearest.

Dead Pretty opens beautifully with strong imagery that transports the reader straight to the heart of the story right from the outset, and heart is what this story is all about.  



Book Review: The Jackdaw by Luke Delaney, tantalisingly thrilling.

Image
I hadn't read any of Delaney's, Sean Corrigan books before but I'll definitely be doing a catch up on the others.  This is the fourth Sean Corrigan book and is well crafted and addictive.
