Fishermen's Court by Andrew Wolfendon is a thriller about how one mistake can change a whole life. Finn Carroll just about survives on his meager income. A failed artist and a failed human, at least in his eyes, the last thing Finn expected when he returned home was to be attacked and made to commit suicide. He survives but a fake suicide note reveals information that leaves him cold – information he thought only he knew about an event that took place eighteen years before. This starts Finn off on a journey back to Musqasset Island, once his home and now the home of Miles, his best friend. He needs to discover who is after him and why has it taken them so long? The island is shut down as a raging storm breaks, trapping Finn on the island with his would-be killers and his past. With his shaky mental state, an alcoholic sister and people he thought were his friends, Finn’s life is about to take a turn that he never dreamed of – but can he survive it? And will he ever be the same again?
Wow! Andrew Wolfendon is now one of my new favorite authors. Fishermen’s Court is his debut novel and it is fantastic. A thriller of epic proportions, this is one of the most suspenseful books I ever had the pleasure to read. And believe me when I say this, it really was a pleasure to read. The action kicks off on the first page in an exquisitely written story and the suspense continues to build all the way through. The twists and turns lead you on an amazing journey through the present and the past in a wonderful jigsaw; the pieces are there but it doesn’t fall into place until the very end. There are plenty of suspects and more than one story here that meld together at the very end. The characters are excellent; their stories come out through the book as you learn who they are, what makes them tick and what really happened all those years ago. With plenty of action and a great pace, this book will keep you guessing right to the very end and, like me, you won't want to put it down. Fabulous story, I really hope to read more like this from Andrew Wolfendon in the near future.
