CULE HINDER is the UK’s HOTTEST NEW AUTHOR

THE_VIXEN

An intriguing black comedy about dangerous liaisons in the English countryside around the turn of the millennium.

The fictional location is a sleepy Northumbrian village where some of the locals have their own saucy secrets and others have ones of a more criminal nature. These are all hung out to dry when a newcomer with a past, John Jarvis, arrives in town. He has revenge on his mind for past wrongs and he has his eye on his brutish neighbour’s girlfriend, Elly.

Elly reciprocates John’s feelings but her boyfriend and his boorish friend Roger do not like it one bit. In no time at all the villagers are up in arms as they perceive a threat to their comfortable little lives.

The local police chief has his own dark secret where John is concerned and it can only be solved by murder. He galvanises the local vigilantes to do his dirty work for him but they have seriously underestimated his powers of survival.

Their attacks are rebuffed and the retribution visited upon the unholy alliance of the forces of evil and those of law and order is swift and merciless.

Through all the resulting chaos stalks The Vixen, the catalyst and the symbol of John Jarvis’s revenge. She steals through the darkest recesses of the plot and scuppers the best laid plans of the plotters.

WHAT DO THE REVIEWERS SAY??

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magnificent Book Written with Great Pathos, July 24, 2014

This review is from: THE VIXEN (Kindle Edition)
The Vixen by Cule Hinder was one of those rare books that confuse me from the beginning to end. I love that. A book written so beautifully and with such grace is not something you normally find in the mystery/suspense genre, but it is not paranormal either.

A stream that flows throughout the book is the strange, touching connection between someone believed to be an IRA terrorist and the mother that faces constant danger as she tries to feed her babies…and how they help each other. Very touching is when one kindess by the supposed terrorist is repaid by the vixen. It made you smile as you read it.

The Vixen is one of those books that brings out pure joy in my little reader heart with how well thought out it was from the beginning. The twists and turns and little build ups and break ups are all related although they may not seem so at the time. The characters include a “was he or wasn’t he?” the terrorist, several “are they or aren’t they bad cops who set a guy up?”

How could a young lady be so carefree; ready to plant herself when and with whom she wanted and how easily she could take off when a mood hit her. The sexual tones are jarring and perfect. The unexpected and careful planning that went into escape routes and the athleticism needed to use them was truly admirable.

A lot of authors would have loved to have written The Vixen. I definitely count myself as one of them. Cule Hinder, I am truly impressed. This would make a great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know or is He?, July 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: THE VIXEN (Kindle Edition)
Fifteen years of injustice and it is all coming to a head in a rural town on the border of England and Scotland.

There is a newcomer in their midst. And not any newcomer; a newcomer with looks, money and possibly an ulterior motive. The local magistrate and his minions are keen to establish exactly who has moved into Rimmington Hall, but it is proving difficult as it was not sold but transferred as part of a trust.
The women of the town are less threatened and more excited by the presence of John Jarvis, but he only has eyes for Elvira.
Is it by design that John has been brought to this village; a village which is also home to a bent cop and a former hippy who’s fate is forever entwined with his.
Watch the puzzle pieces fall into place and be constantly amused and also surprised. This is a gripping tale where the setting in this quintessential village with it’s quirks and characters plays perfectly into the main plot.

Enjoyed this book, it’s clever, cunning and I would certainly read another by Cule Hinder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody’s Talking About the New Kid in Town., July 14, 2014
This review is from: THE VIXEN (Kindle Edition)
Villagers are suspicious when a new face lands up on their turf; however they are even more vexed when that newcomer has no ties to the area and moves into a mansion and spends shed loads of cash doing it up.

Just who is the new occupant of Rimmington Hall?

The great and good of the village, namely magistrate and landowner Roger and accountant Greg, who could also be described as chief town-bully and understudy have made up their minds to bust a gut when it comes to unveiling this newcomer. Roger doesn’t bust a gut to easily unless you want to include his hapless attempt at a wife swapping.

What they do not realise is that Elvira, Roger’s enigmatic partner has already had several titillating close encounters with Mr John Jarvis.

But who is the attractive, athletic cockney and what has he been up to the past 15 years? Word from the Chief constable is that he has Italian ties; does that mean vendetta is the name of his game? Or is it his Irish connection that is the reason for real concern? What has he to do with a parcel bomb delivered to Ex Deputy Commander Wagstaff?

The Hunt is on; the villagers have the go ahead to oust this unwanted trespasser from their midst in anyway they see fit, just as a fox is hunted down by the bloodhounds and huntsman, so will be the fate of John Jarvis. Can he survive? Should he survive?

And what about the enigmatic Elvira? There is more to this women than late night skinny dipping and horse riding. Who is she and what are her motives? Why did she turn up at Greg’s door to rekindle a romance that never was?

A gripping tale that uses the shenanigans of small town life as a backdrop to a thoroughly absorbing thriller with a twist.
