5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, mysterious and fast-paced, May 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Charter (Kindle Edition)
I love stories that encompass history, legend, mystery and crime. I enjoy a fast-paced narrative and an intriguing plot. I also like to be transported to an unknown place. These are the reasons I devoured The Charter, set along the wild and dangerous Welsh coast. Based on the story of the 1859 shipwreck of the Royal Charter, on its fated voyage from the goldfields of Australia to Liverpool, the author has created a beguiling modern-day tale around the gold the survivors brought to shore in their pockets, as they battled the seas in the most severe Irish Sea storm of the century.
I am not generally drawn to anything paranormal, but the "otherworldly" elements in The Charter are dealt with so deftly, the author leaving the decision up to the reader as to whether these ghosts exist or not.
I will definitely be seeking out more enchanting crime thrillers from Gillian Hamer set along the beautiful and mysterious Anglesey coast.
