Salisbury Square #firstreviews


I’ve received the first reviews for my latest novel, one on Amazon and one that I saw this morning on Facebook.


This is a harrowing and powerful story of a Polish immigrant’s life in London. Wronged at home he follows the trail of his friend to London, where he gets involved with a drug addict and some dodgy characters.
Le Pard portrays the ‘dog eats dog’ society of that layer of society very well, also the mind set of Jerzy as he makes choices that often don’t pay off.
This is a gripping and very haunting tale, told in a beautifully simple prose with good pace and clever plotting. A very accomplished novel with much food for thought.

Facebook (from accomplished author Christof Fischer)

Given the current political climate in the UK and Europe, many passages about cultural clashes and immigration rang all too true.
The book left a big impression on me, staying with me for days after I had finished it. Thanks Geoff Le Pard for this excellent novel

If you too would like a dip into this wondrous novel (*coughs) then here are the links. Just Β£1.00/$1.00 on Kindle and Smashwords!
