Twists and turns in almost every chapter with this book by Neal James. He's a new author on the market and his writing is excellent. Having read more than just this one work of his, I know that he has so much more to offer as well. Not that this first novel of his wasn't any less than a wonderful good read. Because it was exactly that, it was great. There were times when it felt like I was in a Hitchcock film, especially some of his earlier British works. I'm going to refrain from saying a whole lot about the plot, because the story is constantly jumping tracks and going in directions you least expect. It'll keep you guessing all along the way. For crying out loud, get a copy already. If you can't get one here, get one at Waterstones. That's where I got my copy. UPDATE: B&N has it now, which is exciting. Keep up the good work, Neal.

The story surrounds the location of a set of secret documents brought back from Germany at the end of WWII by an enlisted man. Roger Fretwell, the soldier in question, falls in love with Madeline Colson, a nurse at a recuperation hospital in Kent. He writes to her from his home in Tewkesbury but the letter never arrives. It is found over 40 years later by Julie Martin amongst the possessions of her recently deceased aunt. Ever the amatuer detective, she sets off on a quest to trace the two people concerned and unwittingly sets off a chase for the 'package' which Roger has hidden away. Her 'investigations' trigger a nationwide chase for the secrets which go to the very heights of government and threaten to destabilise the democratic system which the Fascism of the 1940s had threatened to wipe out. The story twists and turns as MI5 and 'The Organisation' battle for supremacy in a struggle from which only one winner can emerge.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Ticket to Tewksbury. Neal James has spun a tale filled with twists and turns that any mystery reader would delightfully get lost in the web he's weaving. Upon finding a long lost love letter, Julie sets about finding the writer to return the letter she found in her aunt's possession. In the process she uncovers a fifty year old plot that leads her into danger. Murders, spies, government officials- good and bad, all have a place in this masterfully written first novel of Mr. James.  This is definitely a book that I picked up and read, start to finish. Truly a breath of fresh air!
