Two Turtle Doves – Richard Wall

November Quick Bite


About Two Turtle Doves

Suicidal teenager Rich Anthony was on his way to step in front of an express train when he spots a battered acoustic guitar left outside an Oxfam shop. Intrigued, Rich changes his mind, takes the guitar home and teaches himself to play.
What happens next changes his life.

  • “A chance Facebook post led me to this book and I’m so glad I followed it and bought Near Death. The storyline kept my attention throughout. The characters were well rounded and believable, and the ending kept me turning the pages right to the very end. Look forward to more from this author. A well deserved 5 stars from me!” Amazon Review – Near Death
  • “Bought this on the day it came out and, entirely without meaning to, read it almost in one go. The writing drew me in and I found I couldn’t put it down. I think I need to read it again though as this isn’t a one time read – the characterization and scene setting is really rich, and this felt like a book worth reading several times, as I think it has more depth than a single reading will make the most of. Highly recommended.” Amazon Review – Near Death
  • “A superb read that draws you in and refuses to let go, gripping from start to finish which leaves you wishing there was more.” Amazon Review – Hank Williams Cadillac
  • “Another cracking read, one that you really don’t want to put down once started.
  • I cant wait for the next one!” Amazon Review – Hank Williams Cadillac


About the Author

I grew up in a small market town in rural Herefordshire before joining the Royal Navy. After 22 years in the submarine service and having travelled extensively, I now live and write in rural Worcestershire.

I have written two novels, ‘Fat Man Blues’ and ‘Near Death’, and a bunch of short stories and poems.

My stories reflect my life-long fascination with the dark underbelly of American culture; be it tales of the Wild West, the simmering menace of the Deep South, the poetry of Charles Bukowski, or Langston Hughes, the writing of Andrew Vachss and John Steinbeck, or the music of Charley Patton, Son House, Johnny Cash, or Tom Waits.
