“This book is a different type of mystery read that is definitely one that should not be passed up! It brings two different murders into the plot, one of which is based on an actual murder that occurred in Bedford in 1919. The author then brings in a second murder, which takes place one hundred years later. These two murders have the reader constantly trying to make the connection and solve them before the characters do.
There are several characters that at first have no apparent connection to one another. However, as their personal paths are revealed you soon discover how each character has crossed paths with one another in some way. Trying to guess this as well as the ultimate murder connection, murderers and the motives make this a thrilling read.
There is much detail put into each character that they each fully develop while you get to know them. This book will make you feel like you are the detective while you enjoy all the surprises and twists as the story unfolds. A highly recommended book with a great ending!”
Here’s a fantastic review for Life is Just by Nigel Lesmoir Gordon.
“This story brilliantly captures the mood of the time – putting the reader ‘front and the centre’ of an innocent time in history that, only now, do we realise was the beginning of a huge cultural change that swept through the Western world. This was such an enjoyable read!
“I’ve read all of NLG’s fiction books and can recommend all of them. NLG’s books have an accessible charm all of their own. His characters have depth and are all believable. Carefully researched anecdotes from maths to mysticism. The books are fast paced reads that are hard to put down. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself in NLG’s creative world. I feel better for having read them. Tom Rust. Musician.”
“It was all captivating and I loved meeting all the different characters that reminded me of myself & my friends & their families – feeling those difficulties of growing up in an era that was stale & hostile about anything new or different – the ramifications of just being a bit unusual – the glory of finding other things in life – it was painful to revisit those days of charging out – but very comforting to know that we’ve moved on since then.
Nigel makes it all come alive & you find yourself being sucked in to a way of life that just makes you so delighted that attitudes & opinions have thankfully moved on – his writing is terrific, tempting & thoroughly enjoyable.
It’s the best book that I’ve read for a long while.d”
