LoveReading View on British Bulldog

The ‘Mirabelle Bevan Mystery’ series continues to maintain the same convincing atmosphere and assured quality, yet with each book the author skilfully delivers a refreshingly different read. ‘British Bulldog’ is set in the early 50’s, a year after England Expects and the Second World War still holds a formidable grip on Mirabelle’s life. As Mirabelle walks through the streets, you feel as though you are pacing alongside her, the 50’s comes to life and allows you to experience a Brighton, London and Paris from the past. The war years cast a daunting shadow, particularly over the women in this novel, haunting and tormenting thoughts and feelings. The background investigation hooks your interest, and when the action kicks in, it does so with a ferocious intensity. This is wonderful escapism and an extremely readable, intriguing blend of history, action and mystery. ~ Liz Robinson

British Bulldog Synopsis

1954, Brighton, London and Paris When Mirabelle receives a bequest from a lately deceased wartime acquaintance she is mystified - she hardly knew the man but it is not long before she realises that he certainly knew her. She is drawn back to re-examine her memories of WWII and is shocked to find that other people's experiences do not chime with her own and more importantly, with what she knows of her erstwhile lover, Jack Duggan. Following the trail to the threads of what's left of the resistance movement in Paris, Mirabelle is forced to face secrets she didn't even know that she had.
