This is the first E V Thompson book I have read. It will not be the last!
A delightful read with plenty of twists and turns. Yes, I worked out who the murderer was but that did not detract from my pleasure in the tale. I recommend this completely

As usual a very good read, the Amos Hawke novels have always held the Imagination of what Cornwall was like 150 years ago. Hawke's Tor started out with you thinking you knew who done it, only to wipe the smug look off your face several times through out the book well done the late great E V Thompson

I have always loved E.V. Thompsons books right from the time I read God's Highlander. Easy to read, a good story including historical facts, I am so sorry He is no longer with us to write more of these enthralling books. For me it is good to pick up a book with no swear words or sordid sex scenes.

Well, this was a good follow up to the original Churchyard and Hawke. This time the identity of the murderer was hidden rather more skilfully which made for a more interesting read. The range of characters was interesting although I did wonder about the reality of the sub-plot. Let's hope Churchyard has better luck this time!

I hadn't read anything like this before but the range of cheap books for the Kindle means that you can try things like this...Escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life for a while and give this a go...

Yet another EV Thompson story of the Cornish people, Closely regarded and reported with an astute eye by Mr Thompson, whose novel writing, and fantastic descriptions of the places I know from holidays. Reading his books makes us feel as though we were there, and, they are so good, we tend to believe that the places we have since visited, we know the full history of. Even though, what we really know is the History of the peoples that EV Thompson ''created''.

A delightful combination of period drama and murder mystery peopled with likeable and credible characters. The Cornish setting greatly enhances this gripping story.

If you like E V Thomson this is up to his usual standard very easy to read with the suspense right up to the end. Once you start to read you can't put it down only wish it was longer as I finished it quite quickly. If you like a complicated plot this is not for you but if you are familiar with his previous novels you won't be disappointed
