Huge thanks to Mark Tilbury for my invitation to this tour and to Bloodhound Books for my ARC.
Who can you really trust?
Beth Cruikshank couldn’t be happier. She is eight weeks pregnant and married to the man of her dreams. But after returning home from a celebratory meal, she finds a wreath from her sister’s grave hanging above the bed and a kitchen knife embedded in her pillow. There are no signs of a forced entry. Nothing is stolen. And no one other than the cleaner has a key to the house.
And then a campaign of terror begins. Beth becomes increasingly paranoid as it becomes clear that someone close to the family is behind these disturbing events.
But who would want Beth dead?
Can Beth find the answer before it’s too late?
Torment is a story of misplaced loyalty, revenge and sacrifice.
Beth and David Cruickshank are finally expecting their first child after she tragically suffered from three miscarriages. Since finding a burnt dream-catcher, a wreath from her sister’s grave and a knife through her pillow, Beth soon realises that someone is hell-bent on making their life a misery.
Who is doing this, and why? What has Beth possibly done in her past to make someone hate her so much?
How Mark keeps you in suspense is beyond me. This is a true testament of a fantastic writer. Although this wasn’t one of his usual ‘sicko’ novels, which I have learnt to love, there are a couple of gruesome parts in it which kept me hooked; this probably says more about me that it does him!
A brilliant read! Rating: 4/5
About the author
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 being widowed and raising his two daughters, 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 seven novels published by Bloodhound Books, including his most recent release, Torment.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found playing guitar, reading and walking.
