I was kindly offered and received this book from author Richard Milton, in exchange for an honest review. I greatly appreciate it thank you so much.
Review: This book was incredible, epic, thrilling and an adrenaline rush with a lead character that you’ll like right away.
Major Sally Honeychurch fought in World War 2 and then as all women did got dismissed. Settling into normal life again she gets recruited for a new task. Again degraded for being a woman she’s given a job she’s actually over qualified for but she’s not a woman to do what she’s told and follows her own leads finding her very own evidence regardless of being ignored, shun and dismissed.
From the start of this book I loved Sally she is an incredibly badass woman that isn’t afraid to do what she has to do and is incredible at what she does too. When a threat comes to her beloved city she never stops or wavers once to battle her way through and put herself in many scary and dangerous situations and still stays calm and in battle mode.
It’s a mans world in this book and I loved so much that the author wrote in a powerful, strong, brave and determined woman. This book was such an adventure it’s one of them books that you are enticed into from the start, you are left with cliffhangers after many of the chapters and are shouting at the protagonist for being stupid and risking her life even though you know she can look after herself.
I would honestly recommend this book to anyone that likes reading books with a badass female lead as this book certainly delivers that along with a battle, a journey and a thrilling fully entertaining story.
About Author: Richard Milton is a journalist and writer who writes stories most sensible people wouldn’t touch with a bargepole.
His best-selling critique of Darwinism as an ideology, Shattering the Myths of Darwinism, caused a storm of controversy. His study of Anglo-German relations, Best of Enemies, has been turned into a film for German and British television. His latest non-fiction title, The Ministry of Spin, reveals how the Post-war Labour government used the facilities of the wartime Ministry of Information in secret for propaganda purposes.
His book about corporate misbehaviour, Bad Company, was chosen by The Sunday Times as its Book of The Week.
Milton also writes offbeat fiction: Dead Secret, is a mystery of the paranormal in everyday life. Investigative journalist Tony Gabriel stumbles onto his biggest ever story when he inherits the papers of a long-dead historian – and finds himself the target of an ancient secret society. Are they just rich, powerful people playing an elaborate game, or have they truly gained the power to see into the future?
His book,The Glass Harmonica, is a mystery thriller. Concert pianist Julia Franklin is heir to an inheritance worth a billion dollars – enough to bankrupt America’s oldest bank when the trust matures. Miles Bartholemew, of Bartholemew Equity and Trust, has to find the heirs of the Franklin trust and deal with them permanently, before his family’s bank is ruined.
A third crime thriller is, Conjuring For Beginners. When legendary con-artist Ferdy Daniels dies alone and penniless, his daughter, Rosa, inherits his victims, who are convinced she was his partner in crime. To keep one jump ahead of them – and stay alive – Rosa must unravel Ferdy’s web of deceits. But to re-trace her father’s footsteps, she must learn to become as quick-witted and cunning as Ferdy, the master magician.
Finally, True Stories: Mysteries of Crime and Punishment, is a collection of short stories with a difference. Every story in the book is true – except one. Some tell of crimes that have gone unpunished by the law. Some are crimes against laws that are unwritten. And some are crimes that exist only in the mind.
