Date Published:September 2014
SmallTown, Dark Heart…
A long way from anywhere, on a road going nowhere, lays a small, unremarkable town. It seems a peaceable, prosperous little place, on the surface at least.
Away from prying eyes however, in the shadows and the forgotten corners, there is a web being weaved through the lives of its inhabitants by the town’s urbane and mysterious Mayor. A man prepared to make a deal for your heart's desire and, maybe, for your very soul…
Welcome to Hawker’s Drift, a town where nothing is quite as it seems…
This novel has a very mysterious element to it. Even from the synopsis you are not sure what you are going to get. I would like to say that Andy Monk does a great job of bringing to life characters and a plot that are fresh and captivating to read about. There are a lot of moving parts to this one, but it is really worth it to delve in and get to the bottom of it. A very well written Sci Fi/Fantasy, but note it is a bit darker than others.
Andy Monk lives in London with his partner and their goldfish.
After a high-flying academic career and glittering success in professional sport, followed by a jet-set lifestyle of wild parties, exotic holidays and beautiful women, he settled down to write internationally acclaimed best-selling novels.
Andy Monk has a tendency to exaggerate and has an occasionally tenuous grip on reality.
