About the Author.
Mick Finlay was born in Glasgow and grew up in Canada and England. He now divides his time between Brighton and Cambridge. He teaches in a Psychology Department, and has published social psychological research on political violence, persuasion, and verbal and non-verbal behaviour. He reads widely in history, psychology, and enjoys a variety of fiction genres (including crime, of course!)
Mick used his background in psychology for writing his first book, a historical crime novel. ‘Arrowood’, set in Victorian London, will be published in March 2017 by HQ (Harper Collins) in the UK and by Mira in the USA.
|Very entertaining book. A historical novel. London society consults Sherlock Holmes the rest go to Arrowood.
Quality writing that evokes Victorian London.this is complex tale that involves Irish republicans, prostitution and white slavery. What starts as a routine case for Arrowood and Barnett, a missing person, soon becomes more complex as you turn the pages. And you want to turn the pages. This is a tale I would recommend to anyone who wants to smell old London and likes a book with character and evokes the times which it is set in. Thanks to Lovereading for the ARC.
