Praise for Mark Edwards
'Mark Edwards achieves what other writers yearn for, by creating characters that genuinely feel like real people, individuals you know personally-and then puts them into the scariest of situations...' —Elizabeth Haynes
'Astonishingly good.' —Peter James
'Creating characters you really feel for from the off, it is the incredible amount of dread which drips off the page which raises this book above its counterparts.' —Luca Veste
'Loaded with the same emotional intensity and pervasive unease that made The Magpies such a gripping novel, What You Wish For is a slick and twisting story which tests the line between love and obsession, belief and delusion, against a backdrop of bizarre cults and mysterious deaths. Genuinely unputdownable this is another must read from Mark Edwards.' —Eva Dolan, author of Long Way Home
About the Author
Mark writes psychological thrillers. He loves stories in which scary things happen to ordinary people and is inspired by writers such as Stephen King, Ira Levin, Ruth Rendell, Ian McEwan, Val McDermid, and Donna Tartt.
Mark is now a full time writer. Before that, he once picked broad beans, answered complaint calls for a rail company, taught English in Japan, and worked as a marketing director.
Mark co-published a series of crime novels with Louise Voss. The Magpies, his first solo, topped the UK Kindle charts for three months when it first released. Since its success, the novel has been re-edited and published by Thomas & Mercer.
He lives in England with his girlfriend, their three children, and a ginger cat.

I liked Richard from page one, an ordinary unassuming newspaper photographer, but tenacious to the end. At times I wanted to shake Marie but the more her past is explained to us as the story unfolds, it becomes easy to see how she could be dragged into the alien cult life.
The end is incredibly surprising – I never saw that coming :)
Don’t be fooled by thinking this is a book all about flying saucers and little green men. No !!, this is a story of love, obsession and the scary reality of how cults can happen. A really great read, you won’t be disappointed.
A constant back and forth between rational explanations and a hint to the unknown this book is not only about the relationship between Richard and his lost love Marie, but about how they have affected, brought together and torn apart others in their quest to believe in something, no matter how different from each other's ideals
Whether you are a believer or not in the unknown or any faith this book will have you convinced then sway you back and forth all the way to the end.
I really wanted to like this book, but it never really hooked me as a reader and the ending felt flat. The story is a romance, with a combination of the X-Files mixed with The Following. If you are familiar with both series, you probably won't get anything new from this book. I didn't take to the lead character, Richard. I found him rather annoying and soppy. His girlfriend dumped him and her cat, and he doesn't even get angry about it. He gets philosophical. He just didn't seem that believable to me. I was more interested in Marie and her view of the world. I think the themes of aliens and ufology, together with cults are fascinating. In this case, it just didn't seem to come together to work for me.
