SUMMARY: Morgan, a drinking, smoking, womaniser, is drawn to the iconic music of the seventies – Dylan, Carole King, Neil Young, Led Zep – but when he acquires a rejected demo tape by a bluesy pianist, his friends start to meet with bizarre, ‘ Accidental ‘ deaths. It eventually dawns that HE is the target! Running to the Californian desert, picking up the inevitable girl en-route, he has no idea that he has stumbled. literally, upon the biggest conspiracy the Intelligence Services have tried to hide since The Wall came down. An imminent Nuclear Armageddon.

The BookViral Review: Other writers labour long and hard to achieve the fevered intrigue that comes so naturally to David Lake and there’s no mistaking that his novel Tears Of Glass is one of a kind. A story of fascinating scope and suspense it’s rich in the kind of piquant detail that will stand up well to the repeat readings it will undoubtedly receive and in no small measure because of its trove of musical milestones. Much reference will be made to Bafta winning songwriter Paul Millns tracks but what really sets Lakes dark and humorous thriller apart is his ability to tell a grounded story that focuses on his characters. There are no wasted prose, no limp plot threads nor does he deliver shock solely for its own sake and on this level he proves highly adept at controlling the attention of his readers. More, despite being based on real events, the line between reality and fiction is blurred from a panoramic perspective which gives his plot a wholly original and above all authentic feel.

An exceptional novel that entertains on multiple levels, Tears Of Glass is a must read for the year ahead and is recommended without reservation.
