A HALF REMEMBERED SONG
This was my first published novel, although I had written plays and musicals before that.
The book follows a teacher’s quest to recover his reputation; lost in the unsolved mystery of the disappearance of a schoolboy on a fishing trip to Ireland. As the story of the boy’s death unfolds, Tom Ellison’s fall from grace spirals out of control. His only hope is a message on a mysterious cryptic postcard.
His return to the scene of his worst nightmare triggers off a series of unexpected twists, including an attempt on his own life and the death of Mary McMahon, the woman who might hold the key to his dilemma. With her death comes added pressure on Timothy Hanlon to come forward and admit his part in the events on the shore of Lake Descart.
A Half Remembered Song explores the accountability of being a teacher acting in “loco parentis”
A Half Remembered Song is available as a paperback or an eBook from Amazon and booksellers.

Comments on ‘A Half Remembered Song’
The story reflects the author’s in depth knowledge of teaching and fishing. These
topics may seem an unlikely pairing, but they work well together as linked threads
throughout the story. The twist in the tail left me hoping for more -
LES G -
The plot unfolds with careful pace and slow reveals and for a first novel shows a great deftness of touch. Most impressive is the way the twists are plausible and the outcomes realistic yet still emotionally satisfying. A real page turner and one I can highly recommend. It is a strong work of fiction and gripping thriller and despite lack of commercial promotion could be a big seller.”
