5つ星のうち5.0The Haunting at Mango Flat makes you feel like you know what it would feel like to live ...
I didn't think that Colin could top his first book, Cauldron, but he has managed to with this book. The Haunting at Mango Flat makes you feel like you know what it would feel like to live in Darwin even if you have never been there. Brilliant whodunnit with a suspenseful supernatural theme that keeps you interested until the end. I think Colin has spent many hours in front of the tv watching Ghost Adventures to be able to have the latest ghost hunting equipment and the feel of a ghost hunt described perfectly. Cannot wait for his next book.
Fabulous second novel from this celebrated Darwin writer. Being a Darwinite it’s a fun read as you try to place locations and people into the story. A good story, with lots of chuckles and the irreverent humour you expect from Colin Wicking, that builds to an explosive conclusion.
5つ星のうち5.0A great piece of entertainment. Hard to put down, did not want it to end
I love a fast moving and entertaining book that does not take itself to seriously but is not frivolous. There is great balance in this book with enough factual bits to make a local smile without facts getting in the way of a good yarn.
You cant leave me hangin like that....Top story looooooove all the Aussie place references, twists n turns had me on the toilet till my legs went numb more than once.....Cant wait to get into the next one..
5つ星のうち5.0Great read that really captures the feel of the Top End
Mango Flat is a ripping thriller and murder mystery as soaked in Darwin sweat as a blue singlet in February. Wicking captures the wackiness of the Top End, and especially the grit and grime of the tabloid newspaper here called the Northern Reporter. Dark, mysterious and witty, The Haunting at Mango Flat demonstrates that Wicking is maturing as a writer, bringing his colourful characters to life while keeping the plot racing.
Really enjoyed reading this. Plenty of NT trivia smattered around a humorous but racy plot line. No cartoons, but the caricature personalities of the characters are a treat. Please write more, we will definitely buy it
