Books / July 26, 2019

Heartman is the first in a series of reviews I’m going to do featuring Bristol based characters or authors, related to my beautiful home City… Could I have picked anything better to start this series of reviews? The resounding answer is NO! Heartman is the first book in a 4 book series, the very recently released, The Sinner’s Prayer, the last. This first story is based in 1960’s Bristol, starring a crafty old fox of a detective in Bajan , J.T.Ellington, not long arrived from the island of Barbados, he’s left his home island following a tragedy with his wife and daughter, he’s now looking to start a new life. M.P. Wright spins a mesmerizing tale, employed by a pillar of the local black community, J.T sets about looking for a missing mute girl. An absolutely intriguing, fascinating and brilliant story ensues as M.P.Wright and J.T. Ellington take us into the dark side of Bristol, the pubs ,the clubs, the shebeens, the whore houses and more. J.T is a stubborn , wily, crafty, clever , intelligent beast, assisted by his not so law-abiding but equally persistent cousin Vic, he takes no prisoners in his quest to both solve the crime…
