The Lucky Ones Blog Tour Book review and Giveaway. Mark Edwards has just turned the serial killer novel on its head! Asking 'What price would you pay for happiness?'
|Available on Amazon|
I love a good serial killer novel... I especially love one that puts a new twist on it and in The Lucky Ones that's exactly what Mark Edwards has done.
Imogen Evans realises she's dealing with a serial killer when a body is found in the grounds of a ruined priory in Shropshire... the difference is this body looks like it died in a state of absolute bliss... troublesome for the detective to say the least.
Alongside that we have Ben Holland who is carving a new life for himself and his son, Ollie. Just when things seem to be going right for them for once things take a sinister turn as someone is watching them.
Mark Edwards is a skilled psychological thriller writer and in The Lucky Ones his experience and creativity show. This is a stunning novel which amid the warped mind of the killer and the pulsating menace, succeeds in evoking a strong sense of place. The beauty of the 'Shropshire idyll' is starkly juxtaposed with the dark menace of a killer with a strange agenda. By contrasting murder most foul in lovely innocent seeming locations Mark ratchets up the tension creationg a suspenseful, edge of the seat read.
You smashed it, Mark!
