#BlogBlitz The Cuckoo Wood by M. Sean Coleman


Today it's the Blog Blitz for The Cuckoo Wood by M. Sean Coleman. I can honestly say, after reading this book,  I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of his books. The Cuckoo Wood is a very well-written crime story with an element of paranormal and the unknown.

About the Author
Born in the UK and raised in South Africa, M. Sean Coleman developed a love for reading and writing novels in his early teens, thanks to two incredibly passionate English teachers who infected him with their love of words and stories. Over the intervening years, he has written film and television drama, cross-platform series, an interactive children’s storybook and a graphic novel series.

He finally found his niche as a thriller writer when he was asked to write a novel as part of the cross-platform project, Netwars. His first book, The Code, was published six months later, with the sequel, Down Time, hot on its heels. There was no going back.

He is obsessed with crime, mystery and thriller stories, especially those with a fresh or surprising angle. He writes novels from his home in The Cotswolds, where he lives with his husband and their three red dogs.

About the book
A THRILLING, MELODICALLY CREEPY MYSTERY.
Samantha Jaynes took her life in the cold lake. Now Rosie Trimble has done the same. Both claimed they had seen an angel. And they're not the only ones.
A spate of teenage suicides rattles the rural community of Kirkdale, in England's Lake District. Before they died, each of the girls talked about seeing an angel. Is this collective hallucination, or is something more sinister leading these young girls to their deaths?

That’s a question for Dr Alex Ripley, the so-called Miracle Detective. Brought in to help the police, she finds a community rooted in fear and suspicion, bound by their strange faith, unwilling to help, unable to forgive. Because the people of Kirkdale have buried their dark past once, and they’re not about to let Ripley dig it up again.

The Cuckoo Wood is the first Alex Ripley Mystery

Review
Dr Alex Ripley explains away the unexplainable with scientific rationale, which includes miracles, miraculous healing and religious stigmata. She wants to save vulnerable, innocent and naive people from frauds. The kind of con-people who are able to convince masses of people of the existence of faith healing, miracles and angels.

Alex is determined to reveal the reality to people willing to hand over their last penny and the shirts off their back to someone with a fast-track to the world behind the invisible veil. It's easy to understand how people are lured into these schemes. Human beings are always looking for an explanation beyond what they have learnt and their own understanding, which is probably why it is easy to hoodwink people.

Saying that, we don't know everything, and despite there being a scientific explanation for the majority of the unexplained and so-called mysteries in life, there is always room for knowledge to be expanded and learning to take place.

Situations like young girls being obsessed with and seeing beautiful winged angels. Angels leading them to their dark, cold and wet deaths in a secluded lake in Cuckoo Wood. Aren't angels supposed to protect the innocent? Keep them safe from harm? This particular angel seems to be luring young girls to their deaths.

I can honestly say, after reading this book,  I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of his books. The Cuckoo Wood is a very well-written crime story with an element of paranormal and the unknown. The plot is paced exactly right and the main characters are memorable without eclipsing the rest of the characters or the plot.
