Product Description

Review

‘I was gripped all the way – the ending is terrific.’ Peter James

‘A very clever, very pacy story that kept me guessing right to the end’ Elizabeth Haynes

‘An ingenious tale of stalking and its twisted repercussions. Took me in a very different direction from the one I'd been expecting.' Alex Marwood

About the Author

Mark Edwards and Louise Voss met after Louise saw Mark on a TV documentary about aspiring writers, and a writing partnership was born. Their first two thrillers, Killing Cupid and Catch Your Death, were huge hits when the pair self-published them online, becoming the first UK indie authors to reach No. 1 in both the Amazon Kindle and Amazon Fiction charts.
Mark is marketing director for a student money website, and Louise is a concert administrator at a London university. They live in south London with their families.

Killing Cupid from the Voss/Edwards writing duo is the story of wannabee writer Alex, who develops an unhealthy obsession with his tutor Siobhan, and believing he is in love begins to stalk her. Separate chapters cover Alex's viewpoint of the story and then Siobhan's as the story develops.

The thing with this novel as a single woman and a woman who lives alone, is that it does give you the actual creeps as you read it. He lurks in her house unseen, hiding in her wardrobe, he deletes an email which would positively effect her career, and buys her gifts with her own credit card. Alex is a seriously delusional human being who thinks of the day when she "invites him to move in" not as a fantasy or hope but states it in his journal as a certain fact. This is a good portrait of a stalker who in almost every case genuinely believe the object of their affection does or could welcome their attentions.

But, as Alex's behaviour pushes Siobhan to crack under the strain, her own breakdown brings about a whole new chain of events.

The central intelligence of Killing Cupid is that it takes what would commonly be known as the standard chick lit plot "boy meets girl, misunderstandings and obstacles ensue, happy ending" and perverts it making it a subversive version of that sort of novel, like a twisted reflection in a black mirror, the dark side of human emotion. It's like an anti-chick lit, chick lit, behaviours that can seem endearing in those sorts of novels, finding out where someone lives to try and "bump into them" become not the sweet fare of a Hugh Grant love story, but a woman's worst nightmare.

When I got into this book, which was quickly I was brought into a world of a young man infatuated with his teacher leading him into headlong into the world of becoming a stalker. It was an intense longing for the man to stop his dangerous actions, that tortures the reader. It is a chilling account of the psychopathy of the stalker and the lengths they would go to to achieve their goals. There is a great twist in the story at the end and like real life there is no happy conclusion. Overall a brilliant psychological book, that is best left alone by the emotionally unstable. All the rest enjoy the rollercoaster ride.

When Alex joins a creative writing evening class he has no idea his life is going to become more exciting and scary than any story he could create. Siobhan the tutor at the evening class, has problems of her own, with one best seller under her belt she is having trouble writing another book and has just finished with her long time boyfriend. But she soon finds the meaning of problems when she realises she has a stalker, and her life summersaults into chaos.

Edward and Voss really do deliver, perhaps their continuous success as a writing duo stems from the fact that each contribute something different, making both male and female characters so believable and real. Alex and Siobhan literally jump off the page and get under your skin. This book started off with a good idea and they just ran with it, turning a good idea into a totally un-put-down-able read. Really brilliant, I loved it.

Anybody who's ever been stalked, and that's a huge number of us apparently, will find this novel fascinating. It's a very well written, interestingly constructed, story that examines the close relationship between love and hate. Through the alternating first person narratives we get close to Alex and Siobhan, closer than we feel comfortable with in many places, but all the more compelling because of that. Do we get any nearer to understanding stalkers? Yes, I think we do. Driven, as they are, by Cupid's arrow, which makes all of us behave in ways we wish we never had at times, I found myself having more empathy for Alex and Siobhan than maybe a dedicated 'stalker' in real life would ever warrant, enabling me to get under their skins and think more deeply about this phenomenon. Quite an achievement and highly recommended.

Mark and Louise have done it again, after the success of Catch Your Death they have followed it up with this gem of a thriller. Personally I finished it off in less than three days, good for someone that doesn't read a lot. I loved the story, its told from the perspective of two people, Alex and Siobhan both of whom are aspiring writers and it's their journal entries we read from.

The plot alternates between the two in a game of cat and mouse, both going through their own individual traumas, both past and present. It never lets up and is a real page turner (or for Kindle lovers, a click turner). I was slightly annoyed at the ending, but not in a bad way, I wanted it to turn out differently.

The characters are well developed throughout, and you'll find yourself at times picking sides, which gives the book a more unique feel to it.

Mark and Louise are a true triumph, and if they keep churning books out as good as this they'll continue to have a massive cult following.
