Two New Summer Reads from Christopher Wakling

June 25, 2011 | TLC Talent

This summer TLC reader Christopher Wakling offers two powerful novels, The Devil’s Mask, published by Faber in June, and What I did, published by John Murray in August. The Devil’s Mask, is a thrilling story set in the commercial corruption of the Empire and the aftermath of the abolition of the slave trade. What I Did, looks at the unseen consequences of a split second decision, about a childhood interrupted and the lengths we go to protect the ones we love. Although Wakling is mostly known for his thrillers, with these two novels Wakling clearly shows that he is equally capable of writing something that is dramatic as well as emotionally subtle and heartbreaking.
