4.0 out of 5 stars This Daddy is punching hard., 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Taking Tiffany, the second book in the Barrow Boys of Barking saga picks up with the fallout from the events at the end of the first book, but tension continues to mount and the stakes get higher. Mayhew has delivered a continuation of the story which feels more adult, striking and dangerous. The characters continue to grow, but often it is those that surround the two boys that draw your sympathy as loyalties twist. There are times you can really feel for Jack and Jamie and at other times you will want to crack their beautiful heads together. This all goes to make them very real and very believable characters in the most functionally dysfunctional family you could imagine that could easily have lived around the Barking area. It is all to play for as the heat rises, tempers flare and no one is safe from the danger that lurks in Barking’s past. As for the young lady, Tiffany, she is really unsettling, one of those characters you just cannot anticipate. I for one cannot wait for the next installment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eastenders meets Ghost Hunter, 14 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Meet Jack and Jamie, the Woodfield twins, although you would not think it to look at them, brothers yes but Jack you would assume was the much older brother. Jack is fit, muscular and well educated doing his degree, Jamie is slight, more immature and struggles to read and sells second hand books on the market. Neither really gets on. The Woodfields are a large, old family that date back to the days when witchcraft was rife. Set in Barking, Essex and the surrounding area the story pulls a lot from the history of the area, some artistic licence, as well as the modern day setting. As a local to the area I found it particularly entertaining.

If all the family issues aren't enough, and the Woodfields are a large colourful family, then the cloud that hangs over the alpha male of the family in the guise of a sex crazed spirit gives the moments of comedy a much darker twist especially as the book rides to the dramatic cliff-hanger in this supernatural romance that spans generations.

Come on Mr Mayhew, don't make us wait too long for the next part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just had to sit up and finish..., 23 July 2011
If you've not read Doctor Who tie in novels before then start here, Jonathan Morris' "Touched by an Angel", tells a complex story of time travel and the temptation to dabble in your own time stream that would leave Marty McFly stranded. Where these stories could end up disappearing in their own paradox this is well plotted and jogs along at a tremendous pace and is easy to follow and becomes very addictive. I'm not going to give the plot away but there was some tremendous emotional and sensitive writing that will leave you feeling moved by the end. These are characters you feel for, and when reading dialogue from the three regular characters, The Doctor, Amy or Rory you do hear the original voices in your head as you read.

After the Weeping Angels had reappeared on the programme for their second appearance I had honestly thought there was not much more that could be done with them, without spoiling their original creepiness and reinventing them beyond recognition. This books shows that these are durable adversaries for the Doctor with plenty of life in them yet.
