The Secrets of Armstrong House

By

The Secrets of Armstrong House is about, in the main, Charles Armstrong, a flighty, difficult, unreliable sort of fellow – the heir to the Armstrong estate, gambler and ladies’ man – and the havoc he leaves in his wake. It is also about his descendants, who are trying to solve a mystery regarding a terrible crime involving Charles, so the novel is set in 1888, 1899 and the present day. The book is wonderfully well written, with a superb cast of characters. The tension is added to, set as it is at a time of social upheaval in Ireland between the landed gentry and their tenants. The Secrets of Armstrong House is a page-turner, one that kept me up until I had reached the end. An extremely satisfying book, with a neat twist to finish, it is a thoroughly enjoyable tale, one that leaves you wanting to read more about the Armstrongs, their loves, lives and secrets.
