Meet the Author

Long, long ago, before Twittering and Blogging and Facebooking - in fact way back in 1988 - Allen Makepeace retired from the post he had held for ten years as a Schools Inspector in south London. Prior to that he had been a comprehensive school head for thirteen years and before that... well, that's back in the mists of time.


Since his retirement Allen has written more than twenty non-fiction books on crime, disasters, the supernatural and superstitions. He has won several awards for writing including the South East Arts Prose Prize and he was a finalist in the Fenner Brockway Peace Prize for Literature. Most of his books have been traditionally published, the rest self-published. He has written two novels, 'And Such Great Names as These', winner of the NAWG Award for 'best novel', and 'Winter Hunt' and a collection of prize-winning short stories. 'Winter Hunt', a thriller set in the early nineteenth century reflects Allen's interest in the criminal history of England. This book has never appeared in traditional printed book format.


Seventy-five per cent of the profits of these two novels are to be donated to the British Limbless Ex-Servicemen's Association.


Allen Makepeace and his wife live at Eastbourne on the south coast of England.

    Very violent

    This book at 700 pages is filled with violence. It is a very depressing book. After reading it, I was unsettled. The plot was set in motion when a young man, hated by his father, was hanged for a violent crime he did not commit. The father had a chance to save him, but instead let his own son hang as an act of vengence. This set off a chain of events in which many people were hurt and or killed in terrible ways. This is a book more for men then women. It reminded me of Lonesome Dove, but with more terrible happenings. It was well written and edited. The grammer and spelling were fine. The people were hard and cruel, living in hard times and I could not feel sympathy for them. This book also contains rape. I recommend it for adult readers only.
