Product description

From the Author

"A Ticket to Tewkesbury" will take you on a rollercoaster journey through the length and breadth of England as the plot develops, twists and turns to keep you on your toes throughout the story.

It is a thriller, and there is something for everyone within its pages; romance, murder, mystery, espionage and political intrigue are designed to keep the reader on the edge of the seat. There is none of what we euphemistically call `strong language' and the plot is completely devoid of any sexual references.

For those living in the areas surrounding Tewkesbury, Cleethorpes and Nottingham together with certain areas of London, a number of landmarks will be familiar and this lends the story an interesting structure.

I hope you will find as much pleasure in reading this book as I did in writing it.

If you love a good mystery, then what could be better than a 50 year old letter that leads the main character, Julie, on an adventure to find the person who was supposed to receive this love letter? The one thing that Julie discovered from the letter was that it had been written by a soldier returning home after the end of the World War II to a nurse in Cleethorpes. They had met at a rehabilitation hospital in Kent and fell head over heels in love. With her husband in tow, Julie travels to East Coast holiday resort of Cleethorpes. Here they discover much more than who should have received the letter. They discover dark secrets that hark back to the Third Reich. If their discoveries fall into the wrong hands, the very foundation of the British government could be destroyed.

Right from the first page this is action packed. Page after page of revelations and murders. If you enjoy a good crime novel this is a must read. Hearing the thoughts from all the characters makes the prose exciting, yet complex in nature, ensuring it keeps you up all night reading.

Don't give this a miss!

A suprising book one thinks is a simple story but develops into a murder mystery that as with all Neal James books is well written and entertaining. No matter what genre you like to read you will enjoy this.

When Julie Martin discovered a fifty year old love letter, little did she know that it would trigger a chain of events which had its roots in the death throes of Nazi Germany. Revelations in the secret files to which it led, threatened the very foundations of democracy in Britain.

The love story of Roger Fretwell and Madeline Colson weaves its magical course through the story and draws together the forces of MI5 and "The Organisation", in a struggle for the secret documents kept hidden for nearly fifty years.

As George Watkinson, head of the secret service is locked in fierce conflict with Detective Alan Mason, "The Organisation" front man; he discovers a mole in the MI5, but there could be others. Intrigue and murder follow in the wake of a race for supremacy from which only one winner can emerge.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Spy Novel 9 Jun. 2014
By Alberto A. Arcia - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the fifth book I’ve read from Neal James, and I will admit to becoming a fan of his style. He is an Englishman with a love for detective/spy stories, and he has a penchant for detail. A Ticket to Tewkesbury is actually his first novel, and it has a story line that made me envious. As a fiction writer myself, I’ve always tried to steal ideas, sayings, and concepts from the books that I read. And I don’t mind telling you that I’ve stolen from Neil before. A Ticket to Tewkesbury has such a superb plot, and is written with a sense of pure innocence (that only a first time writer can produce) I felt the need to keep my hands off his material. Once the second novel comes out, innocence is quickly replaced by an appetite for commercialism, and then stealing is nothing more than greedy admiration This spy/intrigue/police story shows how deep Neal’s creative pool is – A woman discovers a fifty year old love letter that belonged to a relative – She, and her somewhat reluctant husband decide to find the person who the letter was addressed to – It was never mailed. This wonderful tale plunges the couple into a cataclysm of danger and assassinations involving ex-Nazis, and corrupt policemen. It also forces them to cooperate with the authorities to root out a mole within the English government. As is the case with most of Neal’s novels, there is a lot of killings (some brutal) and plenty of details about English life and detective work. It’s a good thing the sequel is fixing to come out. A Ticket to Tewkesbury is a delight to read.
5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Ticket to Tewksbury 2 Sept. 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Ticket to Tewksbury. Neal James has spun a tale filled with twists and turns that any mystery reader would delightfully get lost in the web he's weaving. Upon finding a long lost love letter, Julie sets about finding the writer to return the letter she found in her aunt's possession. In the process she uncovers a fifty year old plot that leads her into danger. Murders, spies, government officials- good and bad, all have a place in this masterfully written first novel of Mr. James.

This is definitely a book that I picked up and read, start to finish. Truly a breath of fresh air!
