BeschreibungUncle Montague's Tales of Terror meets Indiana Jones. Mortlock is macabre, darkly humourous, masterfully written and brilliant. A superlative adventure peppered with deadly thrills and traditional death rhymes.
PortraitJon Mayhew is a man with a dark imagination, who has always loved writing and storytelling. An English teacher (to children and teenagers) for 20 years, he now works as a specialist teacher for children with autism. He has four children himself and, when neither teaching nor writing, he plays in ceilidh bands and runs marathons. Mortlock is his first novel and has been shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize. Jon lives between the ancient cities of Chester and Liverpool.
