Chris Buswell has a disturbed mind. Sometimes, well, most times, this overspills into his horror and suspenseful novels. They are not for the faint-hearted. If you like character-rich books with a twist, then check below for some suggestions.
The Fence is the first in a new series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from his torturous mind.
Group has a tantalising, ‘Will they, or won’t they?’ storyline. Or buy One Last War at your peril! Surely, no one's neighbour could be that crazy!
C.G. Buswell is a former army Combat Medical Technician and Staff Nurse. During a posting to the Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot, he began hearing tales of the Grey Lady ghost. He worked on paediatric, intensive care, casualty, and medical wards there, but never saw her. He’d have broken the basic fitness tests running records if he had! He did, however, store this information away in his troubled mind, and wrote a series of books, in the Scarlet and Grey novels and short stories series, about military ghosts. The first of which was The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. If you love reading about the Napoleonic Wars, then you’ll love book two, The Drummer Boy, part set in Tidworth.
Chris has cared for many military heroes and the traumas he witnessed during his nursing and emergency care of them in life and death led him to develop military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He writes about this too in his books. This form of mindfulness helps keep his demons at bay by inserting them into your Kindle!
Other postings in his career included the Field Surgical team in Belize, Akrotiri in Cyprus, and Haslar Hospital in Gosport.
Chris developed a love for writing during his 10-year service career and has had many articles published in journals like Professional Nurse, Nursing Standard, and the Nursing Times.
C.G. Buswell now writes full-time and lives in Boddam, Aberdeenshire with his Bravehound PTSD assistance dog Lyn, wife, fantails white doves, pigeons, and a tortoise.
★★★★★One Last War is a great read, particularly for a veteran or forces family member. For those with an interest in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the role of Assistance dogs, it should be required reading." Fiona MacDonald Founder and Director of military charity BRAVEHOUND.
What a wonderful book. I was gripped from beginning to end and must admit to a feeling of YES at the end. I loved all the characters but must admit to a soft spot for Carl, then Brodie & Lee. I really do recommend it and I am keeping it to read again at some point. Superbly written. Very well done Chris, and more please.
Great read and well recommended to any veteran or serving member.
I rushed back to read this book. Enjoyed every chapter.
Another fantastic book by Chris Buswell. An amazing and gripping read from start to finish. Couldn't put it down! Highly recommended.
Read it in a oner! Really enjoyed it and was rooting the whole way through for poor Millie. I was very satisfied with the ending!
