Historical thriller by former OU History student

Raymond Best’s first novel has been so well received he’s been asked for a sequel. The blood-filled streets of revolutionary France provide the plot for The Brotherhood of the Hawks. Ray is obsessed with French history and spent four years gaining a degree with The Open University.

Ray said: “The lead character, Virgil Cormack, is caught up in a macabre game in Paris in the 1790s.
“I’m thrilled the book is selling well. I’ve had posts from people across the country and in America, saying how much they enjoyed it.”
