Fantastic feedback on the novel, The Custom of the Trade

This is an extract of feedback gleaned from Amazon customers concerning the gripping WW1 naval thriller, The Custom of the Trade. Please keep it coming.

“This is a masterpiece of authorship.”

“The plot raced along at a cracking pace, never allowing the reader to become bored and it held my attention right up to the end.”

“… you feel a warmth for the crew as they engage with the enemy as well as a sense of loss and sadness.”

“… Every chapter is an eventful episode, pacily written and never predictable, which makes The Custom of the Trade quite a page-turner.”

“… As an avid reader of historical fiction from Bernard Cornwell I enjoyed the entwining of fictional characters with the real life historical events portrayed.”

“… Lewis threads the technical know-how into the the plot in such a clever way, you are informed without feeling bombarded. The characterisation is good with real depth so that you really care what happens to them. This page-turner leads to a cracking denouement with an obvious set-up for the next instalment.”

“… I liked the sympathetically drawn characters. Very well researched and written, this was a real page turner…”

“A very good read with excellent historical background. Fast paced with lots of action and well-drawn characters. The details of life on an early submarine on active service were gripping.”

“…A spellbinding climax that has you wanting to read more. This book has reignited my desire to read.”

“Well researched and illuminating novel, which gives you a feel of time and place. A good blend of detail and drama, war and life ashore. This leaves you hungry for more.”
