Synopsis Jack's High is a rip-roaring humorous story centred around ill-fated members of a Welsh Lawn Bowls Club who become embroiled in nefarious deeds by vampires, aliens and sinister pagan cults. Phil Rowlands, the author, is adept at painting sparkling word pictures, of keeping the action moving and sustaining reader interest. Don't be dissuaded by the apparent lengthiness of this book at 346 pages; the page layout style of well spaced sentences and paragraphs facilitates rapid reading and this, coupled with its innate readability, makes it a real 'page-turner'.

Here's what the BBC's Writersroom had to say about it:

The storyline is fantastic - it has family, rivalry, love, divided loyalties, old feuds - and the writer has created a genuinely rich and engaging world. . . The writing is well paced, the scene descriptions leap off the page and the locale and characters are vividly drawn.
