Praise for Naebody's Hero
"Entertaining and readable, Naebody's Hero is ambitious in its scope and subject matter." - Jen Bowden, Dunfermline Press
“Wilson may be a new author but it does not show in his work. The level produced is so high the reader has to remind themselves it is actually a work of fiction.”- Bookshelf
“Naebody’s Hero is an international thriller. Wilson cleverly blends three storylines over some thirty odd years and several continents, leading to its climax on 9/11.”- Keith Nixon, author of The Fix
"This novel is akin to a big budget blockbuster movie, but with a strong conscience, and a big heart which beats throughout. In a cinematic sense, it's like Michael Moore was given Michael Bay's budget and did something worthy with it. Recommended reading, without a doubt." - Ryan Bracha, author of Strangers are Just Friends You Haven't Killed Yet
What the readers say
“Mark takes time to introduce you to the people in his mind; he takes time to show the strengths and weaknesses but most of all he shows a love for writing.”
"I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The first I have read from this author, but it certainly won't be my last. An exciting story with a lot of warmth and just the right blend of fact and fiction. Superb !"
“The story of Rob Hamilton and the people he meets and gets to know is an exceptionally crafted story with so many layers. I found myself pulled into the story from the first page and stayed interested to the last page.”
“I consumed this riveting story in big chunks over a few days because i couldn't put it down and just had to know what happened next! No spoilers or plot analyses here if you are looking for a good fun ride over a wet weekend or a long journey this is perfect.”
“As the characters evolve and the story builds you will find yourself reading this at every opportunity until you reach the end. The descriptions are so vivid you can really put yourself into each scene and see what is unfolding and feel as if you were there. I really can't wait until they make a film of this book and see it on the big screen.”
"Finally got around to reading this book in the easter holidays. Was a bit sceptical about the initial storyline but after a few pages I was hooked. I felt that Mark made an unbelievable storyline somehow believable and possible. Enjoyed this to the point that the kids had to fend for themselves for a few hours! I've not yet read Bobby's Boy but am looking forward to doing so. An excellent read. "
