5.0 out of 5 stars yet another hit for Pompey's finest author 9 Mar 2012

Like all Wingett's work, leave enough time to read in one sitting if possible. You'll be miserable if you have to put it down.Compelling,rich in imagery with minimal verbosity, another hit.I'll never go swimming off Portchy Castle again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Gem of a Tale 4 Mar 2012
Short, sweet, succulent and an excellent bedtime read. You should bottle it up and sell the stuff! Absolutely loved it and the 'darkness' it evoked. It's been a day or two and it's still playing on my mind.

I used to live in the area that the Portsmouth Stories are based around and go back fairly frequently. A reimagining of the landscape and the city itself adds a whole new dimension to a place that I used to take for granted. The authors writing has a way of drawing you in and literally not wanting to put the book down. Really looking forward to further additions to the 'Portsmouth Stories' collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Tourist 19 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Having visited Porchester Castle knew exactly what the story was about , would be reluctant to visit this castle again after reading the story. Very good writer as places mentioned in the books are actual places and as a frequent visitor to Portsmouth all stories are compulsive reading
