A Ticket to Tewkesbury

Neal James releases a highly enjoyable action packed intriguing fictional page-turner.

A fifty year old love letter triggers a chain of events which threatened the very foundations of democracy in Britain.

The Plot
When Julie Martin discovered a fifty year old love letter, little did she know that it would trigger a chain of events which had its roots in the death throes of Nazi Germany. Revelations in the secret files to which it led, threatened the very foundations of democracy in Britain.
The love story of Roger Fretwell and Madeline Colson weaves its magical course through the story and draws together the forces of MI5 and "The Organisation", in a struggle for the secret documents kept hidden for nearly fifty years.
As George Watkinson, head of the secret service is locked in fierce conflict with Detective Alan Mason, "The Organisation" front man; he discovers a mole in the MI5, but there could be others. Intrigue and murder follow in the wake of a race for supremacy from which only one winner can emerge.

  1. I've been following James for a few years now, as he started out online sharing short stories. This was his first published novel, and I got my dirty paws on it and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. And even after reading it, I still grab it and read some here and there. It's a quick paced book, and treats its characters with respect.

    It unravels with lots of twists and turns, and I found some of its humor to be very reminiscent of Hitchcock in his younger days. And actually, the whole story had a Hitchcock feel to it. Something Hitch wouldn't have minded making a movie, no doubt.

    I strongly recommend it. It's an easy, intriguing, fun ride to "Tewkesbury" and back again.

    And now I hear the sequel is in the works, which is good... because this book doesn't tie up all the loose ends--putting it lightly.
