This is the sixth in a series and I have to admit that I haven’t read the previous books. However, this worked as a standalone novel and I enjoyed reading Chasing Ghosts.
I love historical fiction and the retro black and white cover really drew me into this book. It begins in 1949, Claire returns to England after three months in Canada with husband Mitch and daughter Aimee. However, Mitch didn’t make the flight and Claire is worried about his whereabouts. During their time in Canada Mitch had received treatment at the Louis Bertrand Hospital for shell shock suffered in the war.
When Mitch goes missing it is left to wife Claire to use all her resources to find out what happened to him. Does Mitch have information that has put his life at risk? or is he having an affair?
This is an interesting story, highlighting how Post Traumatic Shock can affect soldiers taking part in war zones, it is well researched with a strong female character and a good amount of suspense throughout.
Author Bio –
Madalyn Morgan has been an actress for more than thirty years working in Repertory theatre, the West End, film and television. She is a radio presenter and journalist, writing articles for newspapers and magazines.
Madalyn was brought up in Lutterworth, at the Fox Inn. The pub was a great place for an aspiring actress and writer to live, as there were so many different characters to study and accents to learn. At twenty-four Madalyn gave up a successful hairdressing salon and wig-hire business for a place at E15 Drama College, and a career as an actress.
In 2000, with fewer parts available for older actresses, Madalyn taught herself to touch type, completed a two-year correspondence course with The Writer’s Bureau, and started writing. After living in London for thirty-six years, she has returned to her home town of Lutterworth, swapping two window boxes and a mortgage, for a garden and the freedom to write.
Happy to be an Indie Author, Madalyn has successfully published six novels. Foxden Acres, Applause, China Blue and The 9:45 To Bletchley are set before and during WW2 and tell the wartime stories of Bess, Margot, Claire, and Ena Dudley. Foxden Hotel and Chasing Ghosts are both post war. Chasing Ghosts is a sequel to China Blue.
Madalyn’s books are available on Amazon – in paperback and all formats of eBook.
