No Turning Back

Published author Fred Smith is back with the second installment of the life of James Williams.

James Williams is the son of Robert Williams, a bailiff who readers first met in the novel The Devil Returns Twice as Deadly. 

Robert's son James has a consuming passion for all things involving engineering and he starts and builds a highly successful engineering works and iron foundry.

In common with many entrepreneurial engineers of his day he joins forces and becomes involved in the early days of the advent of what was to become the railway network of the United Kingdom and made their fortunes.

However, it wasn't an easy task and there are many trials and tribulations that beset James as he works hard to establish himself.

The story is filled with a number of subplots and mysterious events and some rather unexpected twists and turns along the way.

It's a compelling novel written in a rapid pace that takes the reader back to the early 19th century to a daring and dashing time of disappearing vicars, of outrages and revenges.

It's published by The Book Guild at £8.99 and will make a most excellent Chirstmas stocking filler.
