Seeing by Moonlight

Historical/Sci-Fi Thriller Novel
co-written with MF Thomas

Available at all major digital outlets – Paperback $16.00, eBook $3.99.

4.5/5 stars at IndieReader.com!
SEEING BY MOONLIGHT is an intriguingly dark thriller, with enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages up until the rather surprising conclusion.

Kirkus Reviews:
“…the puzzle pieces click satisfyingly and unpredictably into place. The authors skillfully manage the multiple time frames and large cast, and never leave any plot threads dangling. The book’s science-fiction element drives the major plot twists, but the most engaging scenes are those in which readers learn the real relationships and histories between the characters. A complex thriller that offers new revelations up until the very end.”

5/5 Stars at Readers’ Favorite!
M.F. Thomas and Nicholas Thurkettle’s literary thriller, Seeing by Moonlight, is one of those books that are just about impossible to put down. When I wasn’t reading it, I found myself thinking about the story and looking forward to my next reading session. This writing team is extraordinarily gifted. Their style is smooth and lyrical, and their characters are finely drawn and quickly come alive in the reader’s mind…everything I look for in a work of fiction…a marvelous book indeed, and it’s very highly recommended.
