Ron Bush has been writing for many years and has published five novels to date with a sixth one nearing completion.
Each novel has been extremely well researched and betrays truly believable characters along with plots that will keep you guessing until the end.
And as one reviewer said about his first novel: Heil, Heil, Rock n Roll!
...this is a MUST READ for anyone ..... The attention to detail is amazing and best of all it rings dead true - no phoney happy days soda pop nostalgia - just post war Britain in all it's austere glory. Better still, the characters aren't the usual stereotypes and the plot is totally captivating with a twist or two at the end that I, for one, didn't see coming. Anyway, enough from me - just buy this - you won't regret it!
