Anglesey is a small island just off the north Wales coast. It’s been my home for almost seven years. I love to read books based here and to walk in a character’s footsteps to see what they saw. To fully emerge yourself in a story like that gives you an all-around experience.
Anglesey Books will give you an insight into this small island and the exciting fiction based here.
False Lights is set around Four Mile Bridge. Apart from it being a very English name, it means it’s four miles from Holyhead.
The bridge is one of two that connects Holy Island with the rest of Anglesey. The other one is called The Cob and runs along the A5 from Valley to Holyhead.
In January, I drove over to Four Mile Bridge, the next village to where I live in Caergeiliog. We’d had so much rain and grey skies for weeks and as soon I saw a bit of blue sky, I drove over to take these pictures.
No one deserves to die like this. No one.”
An elderly woman is burnt to death in the remote hamlet of Silver Bay. A young woman dies of an overdose on a notorious Holyhead estate. A drugs war is about to explode. Somebody knows but no one is talking.
Kelly Morgan has a social conscience and a pile of regrets. She wants to help but knows she’ll never manage it alone.
Her boss, Amanda Gold, cannot allow anything – not her divorce nor her daughter nor her affair with the boss – to cloud her thinking.
Another fire, another death, and the flames lick closer to home.
A threat shadows all their lives. A killer is out there, but one step ahead.
I read False Lights straight after the previous book Crimson Shore. Although it was a slow start, I soon got into it and you can see what I thought here.
It’s fun to chat books, especially ones you’ve enjoyed. I loved this one, and the series. I’ll feature the third book next month.
