Fifty Years of Fear – Ross Greenwood – Blurb

A childhood accident robs Vincent of his memories, causing him to become sensitive and anxious around others. His differences attract bullies, and he comes to rely heavily on the support of his family.

After the devastating loss of his parents, a remarkable woman teaches him to embrace life, and, little by little, he realises the world is far more forgiving than he imagined. When fragments of his memory return, he begins to unravel his past.

Who was his mother? What kind of man was his brother, Frank? And why does death surround him?

Fate is cruel. History is dark. Things are not as they seem.

Perhaps he should’ve stayed at home.

Praise for Ross’s books:

“At last a page turner novel that doesn’t disappoint..”

“This is powerful and atmospheric storytelling..”

“Absolutely brilliantly written from start to finish”

Ross Greenwood Author Bio

Ross Greenwood was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until he was 20, attending The King’s School in the city. He then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.

Ross found himself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually, so he says “when things had gone wrong.” It was on one of these occasions that he met his partner about 100 metres from his back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. And, according to Ross, he is “still a little stunned by the pace of it now.”

Lazy Blood book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then four years as a prison officer got in the way. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave the author the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep he completed it in the early morning hours.

Ross Greenwood’s second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by Bloodhound Books, and now, Fifty Years of Fear, is out. All his books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour.

Ross Greenwood hopes you enjoy reading them.

My review

This book was a great to read book which deals with some seedy sides of psychological issues. 

This book shocked me to the core because of the depiction of prison life from the standpoint of the criminal who believes in his innocence wholeheartedly. 

The book while not what you would call pleasant it was entertaining you couldn’t help but feel for the main character who seems to always be in the wrong place and in the wrong time.

I felt heartbroken for him at times as you could just see him trying to be good but with a tendency towards protection which could lead into violent acts.

I am looking forward to more from this author.  Wonderful job
