The Descent
By Matt Brolly
Rated: 4 stars ****

Bestselling author – Matt Brolly, writes two series – The DCI Lambert Series and The Detective Louise Blackwell series. The Descent is part of The Detective Louise Blackwell series.

The Descent is set in the lovely seaside location of Weston-Super-Mare and gives the impression of a somewhat idyllic town, before throwing readers into something more sinister that turns it all upside down.

I thank Matt Brolly and Thomas & Mercer for allowing me to review as I’d been hoping to get a chance to review from one of the series for awhile.

The Descent cover

Blurb

Were they pushed to the edge—or over it?

In the quiet coastal town of Weston-super-Mare, a body is discovered at the foot of a cliff just months after a near-identical tragedy—and Detective Inspector Louise Blackwell can’t believe it could be a coincidence.

Next to the body, she discovers a note that echoes one found beside the first: Death is not the end. Louise is certain that behind these desperate acts someone is pulling the strings, but how many more will plunge to their demise before she can find out who—and why?

Struggling to stay focused under the strain of her troubled brother’s disappearance with his young daughter, Louise hits a much-needed breakthrough when a third tragedy points to the involvement of a charismatic cult leader. The suspect is within her sights, but he knows she’s on to him…

Short on proof and with the body count rising, can Louise intercept his deadly mission—or has she taken on an unbeatable foe?

Review

The book asks, did she jump, did she not? What are the strange notes? 

The book is well-crafted as there is time to get to know the area, the characters and the story feels really well developed.

The prologue gives a great feel to Weston-Super-Mare, the setting of this book. So, even, if you haven’t physically travelled there before, you certainly can with ease with this book.

Amy Carlisle is one of the main characters , who is also within a group with Jay and Megan. Megan has been sleeping rough in Bristol (perfectly reasonable to travel from Bristol to Weston-Super-Mare).
Jay, Megan and Amy belong to a group to talk about their experiences of homelessness over tea that is not your normal breakfast tea and has unusual, interesting effects. It’s a great beginning to set the scene and introduce the chararcters before, in chapter one, readers meet, DI Louise Blackwell and her niece – Emily and within this family there’s domestic strife as all isn’t as harmonious as it could be.

The unfolding story is emotional and is well-written as it throws up social issues and also the crime itself, all intertwined to paint a picture of what’s really going on in terms of the mystery and today’s society.

There’s a body of a young woman discovered, presumed suicide by jumping, since a note is left. The crime scene on the backdrop of the sea and sand of Weston-Supermare creates a good setting and pace, which  makes it a book that you can sit back and relax with. The characters are ones that it was a pleasure to get to know and there’s a nice building up of the town and the areas where the book is set. There are also little bits about issues, such as the run-down high street that is thought-provoking of some human activity as it shows it used to be busy but hardly anyone uses it anymore, so it became shabby and many shops closed.
As the story moves on, so does the body count and the notes as the intrigue builds to whether notes that have also appeared before are connected or not. Matt Brolly is good at creating the mood and really humanising his characters with emotion and natural worry in case mistakes were made and wraps them all up well amongst the case itself.

The writing is well-rounded and done well, with characters to really get into and there’s enough to keep people guessing. It does feel between police procedural and thriller in some ways in its detailing, but all the same, it is a book that readers can really get into and makes the writing well rounded. It also means you can really get to know the surroundings, the issues and the people that make up this story in Weston-Super-Mare.

The Big Chill
By Doug Johnstone
Rated: 5 stars *****

I hadn’t read any of Doug Johnstone’s books before, but I am very glad I have had the opportunity to read and review now. It turns out he’s very good in what he writes and I can see why he’s so critically accalimed. The Big Chill is a very good thriller that has depth of character and plot to it.

The Big Chill Cover

Blurb

Haunted by their past, the Skelf women are hoping for a quieter life. But running both a funeral directors’ and a private investigation business means trouble is never far away, and when a car crashes into the open grave at a funeral Dorothy is conducting, she can’t help looking into the dead driver ’s shadowy life.

While Dorothy uncovers a dark truth at the heart of Edinburgh society, her daughter Jenny and granddaughter Hannah have their own struggles. Jenny’s ex-husband Craig is making plans that could shatter the Skelf women’s lives, and the increasingly obsessive Hannah has formed a friendship with an elderly professor that is fast turning deadly.
But something even more sinister emerges when a drumming student of Dorothy’s disappears, and suspicion falls on her parents. The Skelf women find themselves immersed in an unbearable darkness – but could the real threat be to themselves?

Fast-paced, darkly funny, yet touching and tender, the Skelf family series is a welcome reboot to the classic PI novel, whilst also asking deeper questions about family, society and grief.

Review

Meet Dorothy, Jenny and Hannah. They each have a chapter that rotates as the story goes along.

Set in Edinburgh, Scotland, the writing is well-plotted and enthralling, throughout. The Big Chill is interesting, intriguing and tightly written. I like the chapters alternating between each of the people mentioned above. Their parts that create the bigger picture of the story, are all interwoven well.
There are some cleverly placed film references in the book, which is enjoyable and quite different.

Dorothy and Jenny like being surrounded by dead people. Work takes them between the funeral parlour and being a Private Investagator.
Jenny is hired to find evidence of Orla, Liam’s wife, having an affair with the gardener.

Hannah on the other-hand is getting therapy because of something that happened to her dad.

There’s a fabulous energy through the main characters, fuelled by their anger of what happened to Hannah’s dad. It’s just very realistically written and allows readers to feel their anger and feel compassion for them.

It’s an interesting subject to write about – death in the way this book is written. There’s death, but there’s also a person with a psychological condition that is under control, but has made him believe he was dead.

The story looks a bit into what goes on in a funeral parlour, which is fairly different and how different people have died, which is fascinatingly written into this fictional book.

There’s deaths, including a murder, a case to be solved once as there is a suspect and at the heart of it all is Dorothy, Jenny and Hannah. I enjoyed both the thriller element and how their lives are revealed.

I also like the tones within it and that whole pussy-footing around trying not to say the word “dead” to Hannah and her saying that it is okay to say “dead” to her is so realistically done. There is also the sadness, but also the compelling nature of this thriller, with a little bit of humour mixed in, that makes each page so enticing to read.

What I Want to Say Cover

 

Blurb

‘A lifetime of endings, a million goodbyes. None of them right. It’s funny what you remember when you’ve got nothing else to think about. All those things you should’ve said while you had the chance. You never learned, did you? You never, ever learned.’

Belle has a habit of losing things. Her friends. Her lovers. Her mind.

Everything ends eventually, or at least that’s what life has taught her. But what if everything she lost came back again? What if she got a chance to finally have her say? To face her past. To put things right.

Second chances aren’t easy when memories are all you have. So, when Belle invites the nightmares of her past back in, is she willing to deal with the consequences? Because maybe, just maybe, this time she’s getting what she deserves.

About the Author

Constantly inspired by both the good and the bad in the world around her, she spends much of her time creating in one way or another; be it painting canvases for the blank walls of her new home, sketching pictures to capture memories of the many travel adventures she’s been lucky enough to go on, baking fantastical cakes with her daughter, or writing endless beginnings to a million unfinished stories.

The Things I Want To Say But Can’t is her first novel.

Review

Written In Blood is a fast-paced, atmospheric, spectacular page-turner. Set in the run-up to Christmas Angela Wood is a mysterious woman in a swanky 1930’s style cocktail bar. She later does something that may well make you gasp!

Hunter is teamed again with Detective Carlos Garcia on the Ultra Violent Crimes Unit. An intriguing notebook lands on their desk with many details, including some co-ordinates, which show somewhere in Deukmejian, as well as some photos that brings some memories back.

The forensics and the unusual choice of clothing that the killer is suspected to have used adds to this sinister mystery. The psychology that builds up around the killer is enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine.

The games that are played through co-ordinates are creepy, although when cracked, does become useful. 

The notebook excerpts keep you guessing whether the killer was delusional or if someone else was also involved. It’s a great technique that’s used to have the font of the notebook entries different from the rest of what is unfolding. It makes each section stand-out.

There are then strange links to the dark web and even more disconcerting video calls that adds even more layers to the case. It’s all very gripping and yet the writing seems effortless. Considering what all that it contains, this is exceptional, even though Chris Carter has a background in criminal psychology.

Do read the acknowledgements and this book becomes even more special and spectacular that it exists.

#Review of Hinton Hollow Death Trip by Will Carver @will_carver @OrendaBooks #DSPace #MustRead #BlogTour #HintonHollowDeathTrip

Hinton Hollow Death Trip
By Will Carver
Rated: 5 Stars *****

After Will Carver’s impressive book – Nothing Important Happened Today, which still won’t leave me. Hinton Hollow Death Trip seemed too good an opportunity to pass up. It is incredibly mesmerising and one of the most unique books of the year!

I thank Random Things Tours and Orenda Books for inviting me to review and for providing an e-book.

Find out the blurb and my review below of this amazing book that is hard to put down and when finished, doesn’t leave.

About the Author

Will Carver Author pIcWill Carver is the international bestselling author of the January David series.
He spent his early years in Germany, but returned to the UK at age eleven, when his sporting career took off. He turned down a professional rugby contract to study theatre and television at King Alfred’s, Winchester, where he set up a successful theatre company. He currently runs his own fitness and nutrition company, and lives in Reading with his two children. Good Samaritans was book of the year in Guardian, Telegraph and Daily Express, and hit number one on the ebook charts.

Blurb

It’s a small story. A small town with small lives that you would never have heard
about if none of this had happened.
Hinton Hollow. Population 5,120.
Little Henry Wallace was eight years old and one hundred miles from home
before anyone talked to him. His mother placed him on a train with a label
around his neck, asking for him to be kept safe for a week, kept away from
Hinton Hollow.
Because something was coming.
Narrated by Evil itself, Hinton Hollow Death Trip recounts five days in the
history of this small rural town, when darkness paid a visit and infected its
residents. A visit that made them act in unnatural ways. Prodding at their
insecurities. Nudging at their secrets and desires. Coaxing out the malevolence
suppressed within them. Showing their true selves.
Making them cheat.
Making them steal.
Making them kill.
Detective Sergeant Pace had returned to his childhood home. To escape the
things he had done in the city. To go back to something simple. But he was not
alone. Evil had a plan.

Hinton Hollow Death Trip Cover

Review

Hinton Hollow Death-Trip is mesmerising and is another incredible unique, Must Read book from Will Carver. It’s poignant in ways you can’t even imagine until you’ve read it and digested all that it is telling you. It makes you think of life from a whole different perspective and then go off to want things to be better. Hinton Hollow is 1 place, but the people within it are also recognisable to be within your village, town, city.

It neatly starts with a prologue of who you will meet – A boy on a train, A detective, A pig hater, A food lover, A window breaker and your narrator. Sounds so far intriguing and eclectic. The narrator is the most unique I’ve ever seen. If I were playing a game of “guess the narrator”, I’d win! The narrator is the deepest, darkest thing you could possibly think of. The narrator is chilling in your mind and across your bones….. The narrator is…….. Evil!

Evil, although the embodiment of evil who is telling you this story of this small town, isn’t all you think it to be. This isn’t a book to enter into with preconceived ideas.

Will Carver is clever about playing on people’s psyches. He understands human behaviour. So, when he begins with the phrase,’Don’t Read This!’ of course you’ll read it. How can you not accept such a tempting invitation? You can’t help yourself. I mean, that makes you want to read on… Will Carver is quite the master of reverse psychology. It gets under your skin and into your mind in its uniqueness to how to begin a book.
The reader is placed right at every part of the book. The narrator will address you from time to time, like an actor might when looking straight down a camera lens.

Hinton Hollow is a pretty average town. I do love that people would rather walk than take their cars and really support their local businesses from the bakery to the independent bookshop, even though there are supermarkets. 

The boy on the train is 8 years old and travels 100 miles before anyone even talks to him (says a lot about the sorry state of society already). He has something around his neck. There’s a fantastically thought-provoking piece about bystander behaviour. I love it because it will be sadly so true for so many, so therefore this speaks a truth, right there, a window into society, that is more than just Hinton Hollow. This is a book that will really touch people.

The story goes on to list how evil may present itself and cleverly lists 1 that harks back to Nothing Important Happened Today. The narrator also demonstrates what it is not in the most unexpected of ways. I will say, that although there are mentions of some actions of the previous book, you can read this as a stand-alone too.

Readers will follow Evil for 5 days, although the story is over 7, encountering people it meets. By this time, you really won’t want to put the book down. It’s astonishingly brilliant and powerful as it grips. You will want to find out more. It’s another book that is relatable to what goes on today, told from a darker point of view. It shows life from a different perspective… That’s why it is so important!

Day One you meet childhood sweethearts, A town elder (or 2), Our detective’s girlfriend, The Brady family and an ordinary man. Evil talks about good and how it is viewed in society and how the bar is now set at such a low level to be called “good”. This however does cause some problems and challenges for “Evil”.

There are some life changing events on Day 1. Detective Pace has also only just returned to Hinton Hollow and attempts to rediscover where he fits back into the town, from the case about the strange suicide pact that was like no other.

Our narrator – Evil, loiters everywhere and around people you wouldn’t even expect!

Day Two and Three come and more can be learnt about how Evil moves and how things in this town changes. There’s an interesting bit that Evil tells us about how death is perceived between human and animal. I love that it spells out how perplexing it is. It probably isn’t something people think about. This is another thing Will Carver is incredibly perceptive about – he digs out these nuances of people and points them out to people within the story as Evil sees them, even though utterly perplexingly, Evil wonders if retirement is a possibility. This book has some unexpected dark humour such as this.

Hinton Hollow becomes a changed place from the beginning of the book as Evil works in further and yet almost tries to absolve itself from how people are behaving at times in the same way people try to say they are purely innocent of things when they are not or blame some evil force at work. 

Throughout the book there are also investigations going on, involving Detective Pace’s team.

Evil, in a wonderful passage even talks about death and about how some people don’t react to being told about it when it is perhaps not their loved one who died. I say it is wonderful because it’s incredibly thought-provoking.

On Day 4 readers are told that you will consider:
An old lady who won’t give up, A priest asking for forgiveness, The Raymond family, A pig stealer, Sibling rivalry, The importance of biscuits and the need for a little time. Upon reading the importance of biscuits, this was quite amusing.

Days Five and Six sees the coming to a close to the story. Even the ending is amazing. It will explain what you’ve just read and clarify it for you.
  Know this – it contains some of the most powerful and positive messages I think people will ever read. This is where there are straight messages, instructions even, that are incredibly powerful and not what you’d expect. This book actually presents a hope that things outside the book, in the real world can change for the better and so can people individually and collectively. It totally makes me smile. This is the book people need to read!

This book is another incredibly important books of our times. Will Carver’s  books may be dark, but sometimes that’s needed to create something more positive in society. He delves into the deepest darkest parts, which affects every single person’s life who is alive right now, and isn’t afraid to do so. He is also not afraid to say how to help fix societies ills and to make you think and perhaps it could affect you in postive ways.

Nothing Happened Here Today
By Will Carver
Rated: 5 stars *****

As I read and prepare a review for Hilton Hollow Death Trip (which is shaping up to be another amazing book), I thought I would re-share my review of Nothing Important Happened Today by Will Carver from last year. This is one of the most relevant, exceptionally dark, yet beautifully written and gripping thrillers you will come across to read this year. Please do read further about the author and my review.

About the Author

Nothing Important Happened Today Will Carver 2Will Carver is the international bestselling author of the January David series.
He spent his early years in Germany, but returned to the UK at age eleven, when his sporting career took off. He turned down a professional rugby contract to study theatre and television at King Alfred’s, Winchester, where he set up a successful theatre company.

Blurb

A shocking, mesmerizing original, pitch-black thriller, which, following the critically acclaimed Good Samaritans, confirms Will Carver as one of the most imaginative, innovative and exciting authors in crime fiction.

Nine people arrive one night on Chelsea Bridge. They’ve never met. But, at the same time, they leap to their deaths. Each of them received a letter in the post that morning, a pre-written suicide note, and a page containing only four words: Nothing important happened today. That is how they knew they had been chosen to become a part of The People of Choice: a mysterious suicide cult whose members have no knowledge of one another.

Thirty-two people on a train witness the event. Two of them will be next. By the morning, People of Choice are appearing around the globe. It becomes a movement. A social-media page that has lain dormant for four years suddenly has thousands of followers.

The police are under pressure to find a link between the cult members, to locate a leader who does not seem to exist …

 

Nothing Important Cover (1)

Review

I will start by saying this is one of the most highly original and  dramatic books I have read. This book is relevant to today in every single way. Every part of it is believable, every part of it can be related to or recalled as some real events are mentioned. I give it a well-deserved full 5 star rating.

From the first page, I was hooked. My first thought was “Wow!” I will say, if you are suffering from depression, perhaps this is not the book for you, but for anyone else, this book is a fantastically gripping thriller. The prologue – oh my goodness, I’ve read some pretty good prologues in my time, but nothing like this. Read the prologue and also with the genius that is the fact, just prior to it, is who the book is for -“For nobody” is what it says, with that opening line “nobody cares…”

The sentence structure along with the words has grabbed me. The sentences are so sharp, feel so natural and the atmosphere, location and the scene is set. It is dark, but resembles a truth in many ways and even through the darkness, the way it is written is somehow quite beautiful. The descriptions are incredible. There is something weirdly, almost poetic and entrancing about them, that drives readers further and deeper into the events that ensue.

If you didn’t know what a cult was or how they end up being formed, you sure will after the first chapter.

The characters are grouped, numbered and have no actual name. It makes a thought-provoking statement. It’s also so different from so many other books. Keep with it. You will be able to follow the story. You will still understand what is happening. You will get to still know the characters and their lives as you delve deeper into “Nothing Important Happened Today”.

There’s the lovers desperately trying to find that spark pre-children. There is the ungrateful for whom nothing is ever enough, no matter how much of something they have, they want more and more and more. There’s the poet harbouring a lot of angst and deep, dark thoughts and dreams. There’s the doctor, who just wants to help others, she has no room in her life for anything else, that’s what she wants to do, even though she seems exhausted. There’s Nobody #1, the one who works in a library or you’ve perhaps noticed on the street etc. There’s Nobody #2 who is similar to other nobodies. There’s Nobody #3 who may have people who may miss him. There’s Young Levant who is seeing a psychiatrist.
Every single character could well be someone in reality, the types of people you’ve perhaps met or may meet in the future, just living life. This creates an incredible impact.
All those on the bridge could be anyone’s son, daughter etc and could be well-educated and in any profession or doing anything at all with their lives and still, stuff could happen. This is partly what makes this book important to read. This is showing people in story-form that the events and reasoning can be very real. Real names of companies and heads of them are used and people will remember or know of what happened in real life to some people, and yet this is a fictional thriller book. 
These are the people who have notes posted through their letter box. These are the people who end up being caught up in “The People of Choice”. There’s just a global need for there to be a connection of some sort and to belong.

There are police as well investigating what happened and there are witnesses from a train and you’ll need to read the book as to how they handle this grave situation.

As I read on, I am entranced and sort of fixated on what’s going to happen next. It is so hard to put the book down. It is a page-turner and is highly addictive. It had a hold on me. It is ok, I’m not about to follow what is actually occurring in this book), this is incredibly powerful writing from Will Carver. He knows what he is writing about and knows how to capture his readers.

This book isn’t just about cults, it addresses  society too. It tackles society and community ills and how community can so easily become something darker, even though the people within any community are just average people going about their daily lives, and bam!!! They can find themselves unexpectedly caught up in something, in this case an ideology, a cultish type of thing, before they know it. This is a brave book in many ways, as people will discover in its contents as they read it.  This book is so thought-provoking and hopefully many people will find that is the case too.

Look at the cult name – “The People of Choice”, Look at the characters. Look at the bridges. Read and think. See the clever irony. Question, did these people want to die, did they not? All of them strangers to each other, all of them died and yet “Nothing Important Happened Today”.  It’s slick, it’s at an amazing pace with short sentences and chapters.

All of the chapters are fabulous and amazing. They tackle so many issues and what can currently happen. It cleverly talks of millennials, parenting, social media and many issues that all arise in today’s society that everyone lives in, in some form or another.

This book, I just know will become my latest obsession to hope people will read.

This book is just amazing and powerful and gripping from start to finish. It’s a book of our time. It’s a book that could well linger with you, even when you’ve finished reading it. It’s left its mark. “Nothing Important Happened Today”.
