More About the Author

Tony was born in Bermondsey, London in 1960, although he accepts this is may be of little interest to you. He has always dreamed of being a writer, but for years put this down to the cheese. He is the author of many academic papers and has written some of the most riveting articles on pain behind the kneecap you could ever wish to read. The Last Train Home is his first novel. It is a product of his desire to write a captivating seasonal mystery that is free from whimsy and cloying sentimentality, and is not afraid of a little dark to go with the light.

Tony lives just south of Chichester, UK, with his partner Lucy and 3 children, all of whom think he should get out more. He is busy writing a comic novel and a second Christmas book, The Feast of Stephen.

He can be contacted at: contact@tonywilsonbooks.com

Format: Kindle Edition
I downloaded this for free on my husband's new kindle on 23rd Dec. I finished reading it on Christmas Eve night and it provided one of my most memorable and magical reading experiences of the year. I just had to leave a review. It's a wonderful story of 3 disparate characters who have lost their way for one reason or another. It's a mystery/redemption tale with a Christmas backdrop. The style has echoes of Dickens, C S Lewis and even a little Beckett. It's a bit disjointed at the beginning, a touch surreal in places, very sad in others, but the twists and increasing suspense keep you turning the pages, and the ending is just lovely. I see a couple of reviews on here have been critical, and it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but you get a feel for the book from the preview, so if you don't like these type of stories or style of writing, then I would suggest the answer is probably not to download them. I think the writing is excellent, it never descends in to fluffiness or cliché, and the mystery element is well constructed. I'd have gladly paid for it several times over and will be reading it every Christmas from now on. Not sure what more you could ask for. Very much recommended.

A beautiful seasonal tale of redemption. The author captures each scene brilliantly making for a vivid and engrossing read. I literally couldn't put it down and read the whole thing through with just comfort breaks. I was genuinely sorry to reach the end.This is a real contender for the best book I have read this year.

I also found this book a really good read from the first to the last page and like other reviewers found it hard to put down. I have been reading it on my commute to and from work this week. I found that not only does it have echoes of A Christmas Carol but also of some stories by C.S.Lewis. The book is well worth downloading and I highly recommend a paperback version as a great gift for someone. I think this story would make a great TV or screen adaptation. I look for to reading some more from Tony Wilson

I didn't know what to expect with this book and but it was like a gift wrapped in multiple layers. As the story went on so the layers peeled away, the characters grew in stature and the links between them all began to fall into place, revealing the final shape. I won't give anything away but it's a special moment when the final wrapping is removed. I loved it and highly recommend this book.

Bought this on the recommendation of a friend. Very interesting and inventive take on a Christmas themed story. Great plot and characters. A gripping story and a real page turner - I read the whole book in about three sittings. Would highly recommend.

The beginning: I wasn't really sure where the characters were going, but I was so caught up and intrigued I wanted to know more, therefore I couldn't put it down....
The middle: I now understood, loved and wanted only the best for them.
The end: Very, very clever - It just came together so well. Absolutely loved it!
What a great read! (even more so at this time of the year)

A Fantastic read at any time of the year especially during the Christmas season .

I recently purchased a Kindle Fire from Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB - With Special Offers and I am going to download the kindle version as well.

Can,t wait for the next book by Tony Wilson.

I was not impressed with this novel and a little surprised that it had reasonable reviews from other readers. I thought ir was naive and more suited to kids than adults.
