    Just after reading Sheegorey, and I’m almost lost for words to say, what a fantastic novel.Though I’m not an avid reader by any means, this book had me completely hooked from the first page. a few late nights were had, unable to put it aside for the night, wanting to read what happened next. film producers out there should read this novel because it has definitely the makings of a great movie, which would be a welcome break from the Marvel Comic Movies we have become accustomed to. Keep up the good work Joe, can’t wait for your next book.
    Best of luck

    Hi Joe,

    Just finished reading your book last night, it really is an enthralling page turner and a well written histoical fiction with some brilliant twists and turns.

    It will now live on my book shelf in good company beside Ken Follett and no doubt get dusted down for a re-read in the not too distant future !

    Wishing you every success with the official launch in Boyle on the 26th.
