Dealer Notes
‘Thicker than Water is more than the exciting story of a crime and its consequences. It is a drama of decent, mostly likeable people, caught in a tragic human predicament not of their own making.’ Frank Tilsley (1904-57) was a Lancashire born novelist, who made his name with his first work, Plebeian’s Progress in 1933. He wrote twenty subsequent novels, many based on reporting of contemporary social conditions.
