9780297867487: Light Shining in the Forest

'..the best estimate we have shows that every five minutes a child goes missing in the UK' Norman Stokoe has spent his life climbing the greasy pole. A career civil servant, he knows his way around. He can quote the numbers. He can provide the references. So when the new government decides to appoint regional 'Children's Czars', Norman is an obvious candidate. He settles down in his new leather chair behind his new desk overlooking the River Tyne and waits for the green light to begin his mission. The green light never comes. What does happen is that two children go missing. Norman has built a career being 'strategic rather than operation' but now, faced with a campaigning journalist and a distraught mother, he is forced to become involved. Meanwhile Geordie Nixon, working deep in the wilderness of Kielder forest is seeing strange things. Are they for real or is he losing his mind? And what place is there in this brave new world for the miraculous?

About the Author:

Paul Torday was born in 1946 and read English Literature at Pembroke College, Oxford. He spent the next 30 years working in engineering and in industry, after which he scaled back his business responsibilities to fulfil a long-harboured ambition - to write. He burst on to the literary scene in 2006 with his first novel, SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN, an immediate bestseller that has been sold in 25 countries. He is married with two sons by a previous marriage and has two stepsons and lives close to the River North Tyne.

Review:

Torday's exploration of human anguish and pain, interspersed with the dark haunting rural environment, provides the template, while his biting social comment showcases a writer at the very top of his game. * YORKSHIRE POST * (A) grippingly dark thriller....Great writing from a master storyteller. -- Viv Groskop * RED MAGAZINE * This is a terrific read in Mr Torday's simple and effective prose style, which should alert us all to what is happening in Britain. * COUNTRY LIFE * Torday's exploration of human anguish and pain, interspersed with the dark, haunting rural environment, provides the template, while his biting social comment showcases a writer at the very top of his game. * PRESS ASSOCIATION * An unsettling, haunting story...Torday has created some strong characters in this memorable, atmospheric and tense novel...His prose is controlled, elegant and measured and his totally unexpected conclusion is very powerful. * THE LADY * (A) disquieting and atmospheric psychological novel. * DAILY EXPRESS * Torday has a vivid flair for describing... * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY * We move from comedy, through pain, to a greater mystery than the mystery with which, on the ordinary level of crime and detection, the author has gripped us. -- Allan Massie * THE SCOTSMAN * Tautly written, the tone acid and angry * EVENING STANDARD * (Torday) has blended some excellent social satire and even a dollop of the supernatural...this is an excellent mash-up, well-written, well-crafted and constantly gripping -- Harry Ritchie * DAILY MAIL * A well-crafted novel...there is momentum, and there is excitement. * THE SPECTATOR * A great story, and very dark in places. * ESSENTIALS MAGAZINE * Paul Torday switches water for woodlands in Light Shining in the Forest, a tale of missing minors set in the author's Northumberland home * VOGUE *
