Diana’s March Book Review ~ Ticket to Eden by Ian K Pulham

Jack Lee is a likeable character, with secret horrific memories which never quite leave his consciousness. This affects his relationships and all of his life, until years later the possible nightmare scenario for our planet returns, but no-one takes him seriously.

A love triangle runs along this thread when the two people whom he holds most dear in his life become a couple.

We have messed up the earth, haven’t we, us humans. If a quick fix solution came along would we take it, regardless of the warnings? Regardless of the consequences.

Not a genre I’m usually drawn to, but I was gripped by this novel, the unexpected twists, the drama and love element. It was a compelling read.

This is Ian K Pulham’s debut novel and a touching tribute to his mum and dad, who would have been so proud …

…. ‘See you in the Next Life…’ Ian says.

About the story 

So, how do you deal with a violent and aggressive cult of over a thousand troubled souls, camped-out in a politically sensitive neighbourhood in the Middle East? Oh yes, and whose membership appears to be multi-national and led by a native of the USA?

How indeed?

My comments

I found the story gripping and quite unnerving, in this climate of uncertainty, climate change and sea pollution; a disaster waiting to happen. His novel which follows, however, although traumatic to the earth as we know it, gives a tiny glimmer of hope. Only just!

Well worth reading!

FIVE STAR REVIEW ON READERS’ FAVORITE

For my new readers on Kobo, Barnes and Noble and Apple:

Not long after it was published I was delighted to receive a five star review for:

‘Murder, now and then’ on Readers’ Favourite.

Here’s a copy of the review:

Book Review

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite

Murder Now and Then: 1919 to 2019 Murder Mystery by Diana Jackson is a murder mystery with a difference – a time difference. Joanna Thomas is a farmer’s wife in 2019, who stands accused of the murder of her husband. She had no motive and the murder weapon has never been found, leaving Inspector Norton scratching his head in dismay. DS Brown and DS Petersen are not convinced that Joanne’s the murderer and continue their search, uncovering a number of coincidences that lead back to 1919, to another unsolved murder. Now they have more than one possible suspect, with alibis that don’t entirely check out. DS Brown and Petersen travel to Jersey in a bid to solve the crime but, on their return, things take a turn for the worse. It’s looking very likely that the murder in 1919 may have some strange bearing on the murder on 2019, but what it is?

Murder Now and Then: 1919 to 2019 by Diane Jackson is an ingenious story. I never figured out the connection between the two murders and that, to me, is the mark of a well-written mystery! It’s not a fast-paced book, but the story doesn’t lend itself to that. Ms. Jackson has taken the time to let us get to know and understand the characters in the story, how they fit in, as well as giving us the benefit of some historical research. It has a very well developed plot and is something very different, very clever. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be watching for more from Diana Jackson.
