Five star review from Jesswave’s blog for “The Wages of Sin”


Charles Latham, wastrel younger son of the Earl of Clitheroe, returns home drunk from the theatre to find his father gruesomely dead.  He suspects murder.  But when the Latham ghosts turn nasty, and Charles finds himself falling in love with the priest brought in to calm them, he has to unearth the skeleton in the family closet before it ends up killing them all.


If you love the deeply Gothic, then this will certainly be your cup of horror, as the book positively drips with it…. an utterly spellbinding and spooky read, a cracking mystery and a really lush piece of Gothic literature.

Thanks Wave and thank you Erastes!  I’m particularly happy to know that the spooky bits work, as I’ve never written a ghost story before and wasn’t entirely sure if I could do it.  Also to know that I’m not alone in liking Charles and Jasper the way I do.  These two have been the first of my characters about whom I’ve thought “I really haven’t finished with them yet.”  I may have to give them a sequel 🙂
