An unsolved murder mystery from decades before. A time when bloodshed and destruction were an everyday part of life. Nations were defeated, cities devastated, towns crushed, their histories obliterated. Throughout the ruthless conflict, millions of lives were lost, and liberties taken.
Thirty years later, journalist and novelist, Terry Hinchcliffe sets out to find out more, inadvertently re-opening old, forgotten wounds. It begins as a labour of love but quickly becomes so much more. It’s just something he needs to do. Terry’s research for a new novel sucks him into the past – an emotion-filled path laced with jeopardy. His findings are intricately interwoven with challenges he cannot possibly foresee concerning friendship and hatred, loyalty and treachery, love and jealousy.
The hard question: Is Terry prepared for the truth if he should ever find it?
About the Author: Jos Fieldhouse
Born in the Midlands I moved to Yorkshire where I have lived over the past forty years. After almost forty years as an educator and school leader,now I spend the majority of my time writing. I have an overall interest in sport, books, movies, crime thrillers, historical novels and a wide variety of music.
I’ve always been an avid reader, particularly of historical novels and a great fan of Cornwell, Mallinson, Scarrow, O’Brien and Forester. These were the ones who inspired me most, though I have an overall passion for history in any era. They all fascinate me. I have always wanted to write creatively at length and now have the time to spend doing one of the things I enjoy most. I like to settle back with a good book or a movies and a decent single malt. I find that the two go together well when relaxing.
As far as my own work is concerned, ‘Dark One’ was the first and, of course, loosely based around Bradford in Yorkshire. The ideas I have built up over a number of years are varied and I am impatient to make them come to life.
I enjoy writing fiction and if readers enjoy them as much as I do writing them, then that is a bonus for both parties.
