Tula & Tony,
This review is from: Thorn in My Side (Hardcover)
The first of a brand new series of crime thriller. The characters may also be brand new but like Sheila's previous novels they are so lifelike you soon feel you are standing next to them. She has a superior talent for characterisation.
Set pedominantly on the atmospheric Holy Island just off the Northumberland coastline, the location provides the perfect backdrop for this gripping narrative. The author hooks you in from the start with her typical ability to create intrigue. Holy Island is an evocative place to those who have visited. To those who haven't yet seen it, after reading this book you are sure to want to travel there (warning - check the tide tables first!).
The success of this outstanding book by the North East's most eminent crime fiction writer is underpinned by her meticulous research.
We don't want to give the plot away but anyone who reads this book will see the obvious visual potential for film or T.V.dramatisation.
Producers and film companies are you listening !
