Today I would like to share with you my review of this new release by Mark Tilbury.
Available from AMAZON
Can two wrongs ever make a right?
The police never found fifteen-year-old Ellie Hutton. She vanished ten years ago after walking home from school along a disused railway track. But Danny Sheppard knows exactly what happened to her. She is dead and buried in a field near Lassiter’s Brook.
Now Cassie Rafferty has gone missing. Same age. Similar circumstances. And Danny also knows what has happened to her.
Can Danny fight his demons and tell the truth this time? Or will history repeat itself and leave another innocent girl dead?
I have read and loved the previous books by this author. They all had a spiritual twist and I know this one was different so I was intrigued to see how he would approach a psychological thriller. I wasn’t disappointed this is a brilliant read.
The story covers 2 different time periods but focusses on the same characters. Characters that we meet as adults and then learn more about their backgrounds as we go back in time to their teenage years. All the characters are realistic as is the story.
Callum is Danny’s older brother and is a psychopath in the true sense of the word. Danny has been bullied by Callum all his life but things take a turn for the worse when their Dad dies in an accident. Danny was very close to his Dad and is devastated but the effect on their mother, Rose is worse and long lasting. Danny is the one who cares and looks after her but Callum is the perfect son in her eyes. Rose only sees the good side of Callum whereas Danny is subjected to all that is bad in him.
Danny and his friends go their separate ways after they finish school as they each try to deal with the memories of a traumatic event. 9 years after that event the boys meet to try to prevent history repeating itself but this is at great personal cost to each of them.
I love the complex characters and the totally unique story that is interlaced with adrenaline pumping suspense all the way through making for a gripping page-turner.
Although different to his previous books Mark has, again, written a brilliant book full of twists and turns all the way to the jaw-droppingly shocking epilogue.
WOW 5 stars from me and I cant wait to see what Mark writes next.
Thank you to the author for the advance copy. This is my unbiased review and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
After serving in the Royal Navy and raising his two daughters after being widowed, Mark finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused.
He’s always had a keen interest in writing, and is extremely proud to have had six novels published by Bloodhound Books, including his most recent release, You Belong To Me.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found trying and failing to master blues guitar, and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.
