Ticket To Ride
+ -

‘Ticket to Ride’ is a satisfyingly filthy yet delightfully innocent, romp through the bars and clubs of late 60’s Germany as The Cheetahs, a young band from small town southern England chase their dreams along the trail blazed by the Beatles in Hamburg. Along the way they discover the realities of life on the road in all of its Dirt & Glory, Sex & Drugs, Life & Death, Rock & Roll…
…and it’s all here in one gangster and hooker infested plate of realism, which was the Reeperbahn at that time.

Pulling no punches telling it like it was Sclater, who lived in this world himself for much of the 60s, tells us first hand through the eyes of characters based on real life kids who grew up fast faced with this in at the deep end rollercoaster ride of debauchery and ultimate demise. Not all gloom and doom though as the tale takes us beyond Hamburg, with occasional human kindness and discoveries of new loves of the strangest kind.

You’ll be pulled into their world and the Horrors & Highlights befalling Reg, Jimmy, Adrian, Gerry and their leader Dave and their ever changing entourage, will keep you reading as the pace moves on just quickly enough to keep you hooked, never overblown with drama but full of the contrast between the naivety of our characters and the grittiness of events, mostly recognisable to anyone who’s spent any time in the live music business, here, however, experienced in extremis. This book will leave you amazed that any of them survived, not all of them did, and there is a certain sadness to the conclusion, alien to any Hollywood version of books like this, but it’s a melancholy which gives this slice of modern history the humanity it deserves. “Don’t let your kids join a rock band Mrs Worthington! – Dean G Hill

REVIEW – Cowboys And Angels by Graham Sclater

It’s not often that only a couple of chapters into a book, you already feel it would would make a great TV drama series or a movie. Yet that’s exactly how I felt when reading Cowboys And Angels, an engrossing thriller by Graham Sclater.

The central character is Harry Clark, an ex-Special Forces soldier now running a beachside bar in Cyprus who uncovers a people-smuggling racket, sickening child abuse and also the involvement of an old enemy who tried to kill him when he served in Iraq.

The story unfolds with rapid pace and Sclater deftly conveys a great sense of place and of character as events move relentlessly towards a shocking and graphic conclusion which sets your heart racing. A powerful and pulsating book by a writer with total command of the thriller genre.

Hatred Is The Key
+ -

On June 18, 1812, the United States declared war on Great Britain. Almost immediately they called for an invasion of Canada. The initial American successes turned to a number of defeats resulting in English ships effectively blockading the American coastline and subjecting it to a series of hit and run raids and the capture of numerous ships.

The majority of the crew captured from the American ships were transported to Plymouth in southwest England to spend their time in notorious Dartmoor prison, constructed primarily by French Prisoners of War to house them and their countrymen.

Despite the end of the war neither country could agree who was responsible for repatriating the prisoners so they remained in jail.

“Compulsive reading”

“It felt like I was actually there”

“A story waiting to be told”
