A Half Remembered Song

Alan’s first novel : a thriller set in 1977-85 with a gripping ending


The heart of the story is a teacher’s willingness to accept the role of “in loco parentis”, and what might happen if things go wrong. Tom Ellison’s reputation is lost in the calumny surrounding the unresolved disappearance of a pupil on a fishing trip to Southern Ireland. Years later he returns in search of a solution to the mystery.
