Talking Wounded

20 February 2015

Max knows he should stay away from Charlotte. But who said love was rational?


Max Childs is a self-confessed failure – a divorced, former house-husband and part-time dad - whose only solace is weekly therapy sessions with the Divorced Men's Club. Then he bumps into an old flame, the lovely Charlotte Hinchcliffe. Maybe a fling with the one who got away could be just the thing to restore Max's flagging self-esteem.

But Charlotte already has a boyfriend – the macho Ryan, a sniper on leave from Afghanistan who keeps a Luger pistol in his car. Max knows he should stay clear - but since when did he do the sensible thing?

Can we learn from the mistakes of our past relationships? Or are we doomed to repeat the same self-destructive patterns? And what is really expected of 'real' men in the modern world anyway?

These are the questions tackled in Talking Wounded, a provocative, comic thriller that explores love, war and gender politics.

    Like the racy style and the character's yearning for impulses to connect with actions. Write more when all read.

    Spare and to the point.
    The author knows what he wants to say and how to say it without taking you on a ten-mile detour before getting to the point which was within touching distance from where you began.
    Plus, the central character is instantly likable.
    He's pulled himself through from a great big mess and surely he's not heading into another.
    Is he?
