What people are saying...

“A great read right the way through, it is cleverly written and it answers a lot of questions from ‘The Asylum Soul’ although the book itself can be read just in its own right as a story. I am a disbeliever in the supernatural however this really got me thinking. More great characters build through the book and there are some great ‘laugh out loud’ lines. If you worked in the 90’s before the PC revolution you’ll love it too. Thoroughly enjoyable read. The local references to Woking and the Surrey surrounds made it very personal for me but again, it wouldn’t detract for someone not local.” – Paul Scott
