Churchill’s Funeral: The End of Empire by Patrick Bishop

On 30 January 1965, the world said farewell to Sir Winston Churchill in a ceremony of the grandest scale, full of pageantry, pomp and grandeur; a historical event to honour a man who had shaped history. But Britain was saying goodbye to an era, as well as a leader. The empire was deteriorating, and with it went the confidence, power, wealth and cultural certainties that underpinned it. Would Churchill recognise the...

Deadly Comrades

By Daniel Bjork Imagine a family in a small New England village, Concord, Massachusetts destroyed by an insane murderer in the years before the American Civil War.  Awful crimes to three women in the Chase family that doctor Josiah Bartlett, town physician turned detective, tries to solve.  But then, just after the vile villain – who has turned into a serial killer – is stopped, a new infinitely more devastating catastrophe occurs that brings Bartlett to the carnage of the Battle of Antietam in search of his adopted son on September 17,1862- the bloodiest day in American history. Deadly Comrades, the fourth of the Dr. Josiah Bartlett series, intertwines two stories:  battle and field hospital carnage, and the search for another Concord female murderer who leaves a New York City gang, the ‘Dead Rabbits’ to join Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson and Robert E. Lee to kill Yankees at Antietam.  Bartlett makes […]

The Royle Deception

By Gerry Sammon As a debut novel, I am amazingly proud of The Royle Deception, my action thriller newly published by Endeavour. It’s a work of fiction, based on various historical facts and events, although the conclusions are entirely mine. Reading it, I don’t know anyone who would imagine it had taken around twenty years to finish. I had a crazily busy career, so every time I picked up the story again, I had to stop and concentrate on the work in hand. This stop-start method lasted two decades, and is not to be recommended. The story begins with British officer Tom Royle at the end of WW2 and in the middle of a firefight in Vietnam. In fact it is now a mere footnote in history that the British had troops occupying what later became South Vietnam. The story tracks backwards and forwards in time, with Royle’s war taking […]

Horses of the Middle Ages

By LJ Shea When I began the research for my medieval mystery novel, The Ravens’ Augury, it was inevitable that companion animals would feature significantly in the storyline. I have loved animals for as long as I can remember. When I first envisaged Faucher, the imposing yet gentle black horse ridden by the protagonist Wat Baudin, I assumed that he was a Clydesdale. Little did I know at that stage that this breed of horse would not exist for another four hundred years! The name, “Faucher”, is Norman French for ‘to mow.’ Considering how much food the draught horses I have owned can put away, it did seem rather apt. My research indicated that the heavy horses used in medieval times for agricultural purposes were simply called ‘cart horses’ or ‘pack horses’. Thanks to film and television, I think that most of us picture an immense beast of war when […]

Scandals, Intrigues, Family Feuds, Murders, Hatred, Love and Envy: Episode 6

In the background of ‘Ulick’s Daughter’ stands the small, misshapen figure of her father’s heir – Hubert George de Burgh-Canning, the 15th Earl of Clanricarde. Born in Russia, Hubert  grew up in the shadow of his elder brother, Lord Dunkellin, Ulick Canning de Burgh.   Doted on by his father, the younger Ulick had a distinguished career, serving in the Coldstream Guards and as aide-de-camp to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland; fighting in the Crimean war and acting as Military Secretary to the Viceroy of India before becoming an MP.   And then, at 40, he suddenly died, predeceasing his father by seven years.   As he had been unmarried, the title and estate automatically went to his younger brother.    For his father, this was a double blow for he loathed and despised Hubert. His hatred was to be shared by the Irish people.  Hubert de Burgh never once set foot in Ireland but […]

Five Parks, by Ross McGuinness

‘Keep writing…’ It’s the only instruction given to Suzanne, my novel’s protagonist, by her mystery captor, but it’s also the mantra that swirled around my head until I’d finished Five Parks. As a debut author, it’s tempting to see the attraction of being locked alone in a dark room with only the light of a laptop to guide your way. No distractions. We grew up reading the books we love that way – huddled under a duvet, the pages bright yellow with torchlight – so why not write them like that? The windowed room is the enemy of the writer, full of the promise of the real world when they should be gazing through the pane of their own imagination. In Five Parks, Suzanne is offered no such luxury. At the beginning of the novel, she wakes up handcuffed in a dark room. Her only companions are a chair, a […]

Scandals, Intrigues, Family Feuds, Murders, Hatred, Love and Envy: Episode 5

By Joy Martin Ulick de Burgh, the 14th Earl of Clanricarde in County Galway, had a second title and, as Baron Somerhill, an automatic seat in the British House of Lords in the early 19th century.   His marriage to the Honourable Harriet Canning, daughter of the British Prime Minister, George Canning, added to his prestige, leading to his appointment as British Ambassador to Russia. Handsome and charming, Ulick de Burgh is rumoured to have sired several illegitimate children. ULICK’S DAUGHTER is a novel based on the story of one of them. Eva Dillon is a woman driven by the urge to fulfil what she perceives as her destiny – to be acknowledged as ULICK’S DAUGHTER. As she says of herself: ‘I am not like other people: my life was planned out before I was born.’ Her ambition leads her to abandon her true love and to ruthlessly claw her way […]
