It was a very different kind of crime/mystery book. It made me want to keep reading and it was very interesting. I did like it a lot.

WYCHWOOD - George Mann
This is not my usual choice of novel and I thought it would be interesting to try to read and review a different genre. It’s a story full of mystery, myth and paganism and will no doubt appeal to crime/horror fans. As such, I thought it was well structured and exciting. The...

Yesterday evening I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down to start reading Wychwood. Two hours later I finally looked up from my book, it was well past midnight, my coffee was stone cold and I was contemplating “just a few more chapters” before bed. This is a good’un.
