Contemporary Fiction - Attic
"The Attic is the story of two young couples who are tormented in their homes. Both couples live in separate towns. All they have in common, with each other, is the type of homes they live in. Both couples live in terraced houses in older districts of their towns. Their aims are simple, buy small, renovate and sell on. Then when circumstances, such as the arrival of a family, deem it necessary they will upgrade to a bigger more suitable property.
A ruthless property developer has targeted both couples. He wants their homes for two very different reasons. Mandy and John Downing are his first target. He wants their home as part of his twisted plan to gain revenge on his grandfather, a man he has never met.
Alice and Raymond Dunbar are the other target. This home is located in an area where vast amounts of money are involved. Their home is the prime target. He will do anything, legal or otherwise, to get what he wants."

This book comes with a great deal of thrill, excitement and suspense to the readers and I've enjoyed reading it a lot because the plot of the story is really good. Once I've started reading the book, I couldn't just seem to put it down anymore because it just keeps getting more and more exciting.
The story starts with a very descriptive narrative about Alice Hawkins, a young lady who was about to get married to a guy named Raymond Dunbar. Alice have lived at her parents' house for a lot of years and will be leaving their place after she gets married with Raymond so they can live in a new town they can start their own family.
The book also has two other characters namely Mandy and John Downing and just like Alice and Raymond Dunbar, this young couple also lives in another town.
Both couples may have lived in two separate towns but they have been tormented by something that they can't seem to understand. They have experienced a lot of pressure, anxiety and troubles during their stay in those towns and they can't seem to figure out what's causing it.
Little did they know that they were actually a target by a ruthless property developer who wanted to have their homes for two different reasons - for revenge and for money.
The turn of events lead us into a detective who has been running after to catch the developer for many years now and he coordinated with both the young couples to finally catch the bad guy.
This book was definitely a great read. The way the story was written was very unique and different that it will definitely catch the reader's interest and attention.
Murth Hogan was born in Wexford, Ireland in March 1952. He was educated in the Christian Brothers primary and secondary level schools. He left school at fifteen and went to work in the construction industry serving a five year apprenticeship in carpentry.
He remained working in construction for a further six years after his apprenticeship was completed. During that time he did a third level course in Interior Design and Construction as a mature student.
In 1981 he left Wexford and moved to Cork city on the south coast of ireland where he started a design consultancy business. The business was successful for a couple of years but the recession of the mid eighties virtually wiped out the need for his professional services.
In September 1986 he emigrated to Canada living and working in Toronto for three years and then the small city of St. Catherines for three and a half years. It was during his time in St. Catherines that he developed his interest in writing. This interest was very important to him at the time as a means of lessening the lonliness he felt as his young family remained in Ireland. He worked on a number of stories which he wrote in the form of screenplays. He quickly realised the difficulties of getting work in this area and for a long time lost interest in his projects. He returned to Ireland in December 1992 and once again faced the prospect of unemployment. He worked mainly doing odd jobs and some casual work for a building company over the next two years.
In January 1995 he was successful in his application for full time employment in a Community based project in his home town. He has worked in this job to the present day. In 2011 he decided once again to work on his ideas only this time to write them as books. The Attic is the first of these stories.
