#BLOGTOUR | Horsey Mere & The Wherryman – David Blake @DavidDBlake @rararesources @gilbster1000 #amreading #bookblogger #bookreview

The remains of a 17th Century witch, an MP found hanging above a five-pointed star, and three girls with powers beyond anyone’s control.

As DI Tanner and DS Evans endeavour to make plans for their big day, the chance discovery of Norfolk’s last known witch, tried and hanged by Norfolk’s infamous Witchfinder General, sparks a chain of the most horrific events, none of which Tanner seems able to stop.



I haven’t read the other books in the series. I think this works okay as a standalone, but I would probably understand why things are the way they are, if I’d read the previous novels. It didn’t take away from my enjoyment though.

The plot was very engaging. There are lots of twists and turns, and it kept me really invested in the story. There were some surprises I definitely didn’t see coming. I won’t spoil any of them, but be prepared!

I liked Tanner. He’s a solid character. As stated, I’ve probably missed some development over the last books, but what makes this work as a standalone, is that he’s still growing as a character in this one. So, I was able to get to know him while following him.

I enjoyed Horsey Mere and am looking forward to more.

Four missing children, three murdered men, and the helm of a boat with a blood-red sail, hiding a secret only he can tell.

Returning to the Broads after nearly two years at sea, Tanner moors up next to a boat to find the body of a man whose five-year-old daughter is nowhere to be seen. As a torrent of unwanted memories begins flooding through his mind, an attractive Broads Ranger arrives at the scene with a disturbing tale; one of children being taken by a ghostly figure, standing at the helm of an old wooden boat.



I was lucky enough to go from Horsey Mere right into The Wherryman. This was great because Horsey Mere left off with quite a surprise and I was interested to see where DI Tanner was headed now.

Tanner has evolved from Horesey Mere, and I think he’s becoming an even deeper, interesting character in this novel.

I was hooked from the prologue. David Blake has a talent of creating very visual scenes that allow readers to really immerse themselves into this novel.

Very intriguing read. This novel definitely heads in a darker direction, and weaves intricate plot points. I enjoyed this.
