SOME CUSTOMERS’ REVIEWS:

Gotta say that I only bought it cos of the free tag. Read it and goodness. What a decent book and for free too. Just bought another Philip Cox bought on the strength of. – Mr BA Mahoney


Gripping hard to down. I pretty much knew all these areas in this book. That helps & so does the underground element. It was a very quick read, I would have liked more. The ending was written well enough – Bel


Having not read for a while, I wanted something easy to read. This was just the right book for the job. Nicely written with just enough going on to keep you interested. I will be looking for more titles from this author. – Tinglish


As my title confirms, I enjoyed reading this book. This was the only book I have read by this author but will certainly look out for more now. I found it easy to read and quite gripping at times. I loved the character Tom right from the start and really didn't want the story to end. A lot of the pleasure I derived from reading the story was the fact it was based in London not America as so many crime stories are nowadays. After the story had finished I read on my Kindle the taster to She's Not Coming Home and liked what I read so will soon purchase that one as well. – Mrs Jeanette Hellier


One of the best gripping stories, I recommended to all set in London where we all know the landmarks. – Peter Pavlovic


I stumbled across this book whilst browsing around the Kindle store. I enjoyed it from the start thanks to it's close ties with London, where I work and love. After a while it became extremely gripping and exciting, and I found myself spending my entire lunch break on a sofa in Starbucks with a Pumpkin Spice Latte and my Kindle with this book! An excellent plot, story and twist - especially for those who love London. Will definitely read the author's other work now too. Great to see he's a new author and that Kindle is facilitating the discovery of his work so well, too. – Henry C


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

When Tom Raymond receives a call from his ex-wife asking to meet him, he is both surprised and intrigued - maybe she wants a reconciliation?

However, his world is turned upside-down when she falls under a subway train on her way to meet him.

Refusing to accept that she jumped, Tom sets out to investigate what happened to her that evening.

Soon, he finds he must get to the truth before some very dangerous people get to him.

More About the Author

Philip Cox was born in the English seaside town of Southend on Sea, around forty miles from London. After leaving school, he began a long career in banking and insurance, culminating in appointments as a Branch Manager of two major UK banks. In 2009, he took a break from financial services to be a stay at home father to his two children.

In the summer of 2010, between changing nappies/diapers, Philip started to write 'After the Rain', which was published as a paperback and e-book in September 2011.

His second book, 'Dark Eyes of London', was published in April 2012.

'She's Not Coming Home' is Philip's third novel and was published in November 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like a story set in London 21 Dec 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like a story set in London, this wont let you down. Well written and believable characters, plenty of suspense and some great twists. A real page turner thats hard to put down, not full of graphic blood and guts scenes, its got plenty to offer. Well worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointing 20 April 2013
By Dashers
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Essentially the storyline was enjoyable, a bit slow to start with, but pace then picked up. However, the most disappointing thing for me were the number of errors that should have been picked up at editing/proof-reading stage. I sort of accept there will always be typos (especially on Kindle!!), but there were glaring inconsistencies throughout. I have to say I found similar errors in "After the Rain". It's just sloppy editing and for me spoils the enjoyment of a good mystery/thriller.

A very good read.
I picked this up as a free book & only started reading it whilst waiting for my wife.
I was hooked & actually made her wait whilst I finished the chapter.
Great read.
Can't wait to read his other work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good story. 17 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Plenty of action from the first page. Lots of twists and turns which keep the reader guessing, and good ending. Worth giving it a try if you haven't read any of the author's work before.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story but with reservations 24 Dec 2013
By Paul W
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this yarn. I spent many hours as a kid on the London underground and as it plays a big part in the story I liked that element. An inventive plot but let down a bit at the end as is often the case with novels because coming to a good end is hard to do and the ending here is less than the rest of the story deserved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edgy 25 Oct 2013
By Aurora TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found myself feeling quite edgy at times whilst reading this book. We can see characters blindly walking into danger not knowing where they will come up against their adversaries and perhaps not thinking things through too clearly. We know who the adversaries are but not what the reasons for their actions are. We know that they are not particularly concerned about who they have to kill to achieve their aims, but why do they seem not to know one important fact? Who can be trusted? Is everyone who they claim to be, who is telling the truth and is everything linked? Like the last Philip Cox book I read She's Not Coming Home, there is a twist in the end which I certainly didn't see coming. I had related suspicions but got the wrong character completely.
I found it worth the time to read this.
