Review of Hangman's Wood

Torture, murder and painstaking police work are the stuff of Paula K Randall's striking debut crime thriller, `Hangman's Wood'. From the gruesome opening, through the tantalising step-by-step police investigations we enter the disturbed, sadistic worlds of two young criminals, witness the torment of their victims and follow the hardened but compassionate Detective Inspector Fiona Brightman as she proceeds with the case. Central to the plot is the volatile relationship between the intelligent and psychopathic Gray and his accomplice Jed, whose increasingly violent and perverted games test Fiona Brightman and her team to their limits. As chief investigating officer, Fiona struggles to contain the demands of her job and preserve her marriage, while the growing violence of the attacks and the complexity of the investigation become more desperate and draining.

Containing all the essential ingredients of crime drama, as well as authentic police procedural detail and the menacing wintry setting of hidden inlets and creeks on the Suffolk coast, `Hangman's Wood' is an extremely gutsy read.

I really struggled with the style and the heavily detailed description of every psychological and emotional moment in the characters' consciousnesses.

This was attractive to look at with some inspiring examples, but very little actual instruction about exercises and strategies for a total beginner.

This arrived promptly and was very good value for money. The print in the flute part is perhaps a little small for those with failing eyesight.
