Review: South By Southwest Wales

South By Southwest Wales South By Southwest Wales by David Owain Hughes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


'South By Southwest Wales' by David Owain Hughes

This book is one of those where you know from the very first page you're really going to enjoying reading it.

The main character is Samson a real old school 1940s Chicago style PI, but unfortunately for Samson he doesn't live in Chicago nor does he live in the 1940s, he lives in modern day Cardiff Wales where he struggles with alcoholism , delusions and doesn't quite fit in. And to top it all off he manages to find himself in a whole heap of trouble when he least expects it.

David has done a wonderful job of creating a old school style PI living in the modern world and I for one absolutely loved Samson as a character , his a man with problems but with a Heart of Gold and man who's willing to go the extra mile to protect those that he loves even when he has nothing left to give. Highly recommended and I'm hoping for a sequel.

For those who are easily offended by bad language this may not be the book for you.

Review: Tales from the Tombstone

Tales from the Tombstone Tales from the Tombstone by S.Ballinger & P.Coombes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We our the authors of this book. We had a wonderful time visiting photographing and researching all the places in the book we hope you enjoy reading about our findings.

Churches and churchyards stand as a silent witness to many of life`s events such as births, marriages and death. In times of war and peace, they silently watch as generation after generation passes by. But if you look a little closer, they will reveal their secrets to you. This book gives a brief history of those beautiful churches, alongside some of the stories behind the graves. (less)
