Fenland brickie publishes first novel - a tale of treasure and intrigue
A bricklayer from Wisbech has published his first historical novel entitled 'Seadogs and Criminals'.
Alex Fisher, 23, who attended the Peele Community College in Long Sutton before completing a bricklayer course at the College of West Anglia, has set his first book in Victorian times and it follows the story of Joseph Winter, a master criminal of the back streets, who is forced to go on a global treasure hunt to find the infamous Lost Loot.
