Product Description

Review

Praise for Karen Charlton's 'Catching the Eagle' - "Told with gritty realism, Catching The Eagle is a suspense-filled page-turner, which spares nothing in its descriptions of the hardships and injustices suffered by the poor at the turn of the 19th century. Its ending leaves the reader poised perfectly for the next volume - for which I can hardly wait." --- Kathy Stevenson, The Daily Mail "It is a rollicking tale full of adultery, drinking, fighting, gambling. Rich imagery, suspense and some genuinely likeable characters - as well as plenty of murky ones --- make this an enjoyable read. Karen is particularly strong at capturing the Geordie dialect and recreating the rural Northumbrian world of the 1800s, where the wealthy lived in comfort and the poor struggled to make ends meet." - --Laura Fraine, Culture magazine, 'The Journal' (Newcastle)

Format: Paperback
I Have read all three books written by Karen. As a native Northumbrian, born in Morpeth, educated in Hexham , these books were fantistic I have traced my clan back to the Hexham area to the 1600's, although I found no direct connection to Karen;s branch. it is good to read about other off shoot lines of the Charlton's. Please write more. (nee Charlton)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Karen Charlton followed up on Catching the Eagle with another fine historical crime novel and completely at home in early 18th century local history in the north east. The central characters Detective Lavender - educated and thoughtful - contrasts in an immensely readable way with his practical assistant - man of action - Constable Woods. Another novel about these two is something I will welcome.
