I would like to think that this is the best romantic novel ever written about a newspaper photographer and the town of Hemel Hempstead. This may be because it is the only romantic novel written about a newspaper photographer and Hemel Hempstead!
The story starts with the exhumation of the body of Snook. He was a real highway robber who was hung at the scene of his crime on Boxmoor. Examination of the skeleton starts off a trail of mystery and this story runs parallel with that of a photographer who moves to Hemel Hempstead, gets a job on the Gazette and falls in love with an estate agent. Both stories become inter-twined as the plot unfolds with a great deal of action, romance, scary bits and humour.
Everyone who has read the book so far, many of these being very critical journalists, has said that it is very entertaining. I am sure you will too.
