David Booker returns to Romney Marsh on the south coast of England for a holiday. He is expecting to spend time helping his aunt and uncle pack up the stock of their second-hand bookshop in preparation for a happy retirement.
He arrives in Dymchurch on a miserable April night to find his relatives missing without word or clue regarding their whereabouts.
As events unravel, the outlook of the local police pushes Booker to search for his own answers to the questions surrounding his family’s disappearance. To unravel the mystery he will have to put himself in danger.
Will Booker find the answers he needs and make it out alive?
Oliver Tidy was born and bred on Romney Marsh, Kent. After a fairly aimless foray into adulthood and a number of unfulfilling jobs he went back to education and qualified as a primary school teacher.
A few years of having the life sucked out of him in the classroom encouraged Oliver abroad to teach English as a foreign language. The lifestyle provided him the time and opportunity to try his hand at writing.
Oliver’s success as a self-published author has led to his Booker & Cash series of books, which are set mainly on Romney Marsh, being signed by Bloodhound Books.
Oliver is now back living on Romney Marsh and writing full time.
As I sit here I still try and put my thoughts in order for dealing with this book. While I did enjoy it just not in the way many think.
In the book I saw the ending coming while not a bad thing it didn’t come as a surprise at all. Sometimes I like to be shocked but this is not one of these books.
Onto the characters they were not altogether memorable other than David Booker who seemed a little dim at times as to what was happening. While I did feel for him it seemed he was notes emotional as I figured he would be.
It shows a hugely different facet into the human mind. I am looking forward to more from this author in the future.
