Reviews

“A young man buffeted by world events is left reeling, but survives to build his own empire in Bath. The ancient city has seen it all and has her own cards to play...  Douglas Westcott writes from experience of the chaos of history, business, and wild passions in this gripping trilogy.”

Tom Craigmyle

‘What a superb follow up to Go Swift and Far! Born and raised in Bath the highly descriptive locations and quality of writing allow one to truly live and feel part of the story. Eagerly awaiting book three!’

Helen Beer

“Hard on the heels of ‘Go Swift and Far’ comes this hugely enjoyable sequel and another success for Westcott”

Jack Jenkins

“Westcott has done it again, masterfully capturing the essence of magnificent Bath”
