“…The transformative, menacing, use of Nature was powerfully established… Excellent.” 5 stars – Michael Deane-White, author of ‘Planks And Other Timber’
TORC OF MOONLIGHT
Sex, sport and alcohol are why Nick Blaketon escaped to college, but when pieces of his life start disappearing he locks on to chaste Alice for stability. Only it’s not the alcohol affecting him. And seducing Alice lays a path to a past that isn’t buried, and definitely isn’t dead.
Multiple 5* reviews “Riveting”
Book One of a trilogy that will keep you nailed to the page.
'Torc of Moonlight' (113,000 words) is the first in a trilogy of thrillers set in English university cities pressing the North York Moors against the sea. Includes the opening of Book 2 'The Bull At The Gate' set in York.
“…in starkly elegant prose, builds a powerful novel of possession and psychological breakdown in 'Torc of Moonlight'. She writes the male point of view very well indeed…” 5 stars – Keen Reader (Amazon UK review)
“…The riveting climax of the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Is it real or a nightmare? Can you drown in a hallucination?...” 5 stars – Debra L Martin, Two Ends of the Pen
