With The Eyes Of The Accused being the second novel in the Ben Whittle Investigation series I would recommend reading The Revelation Room prior to this one.

I developed a bit of a soft spot for Ben and Maddie in The Revelation Room so was delighted to be reunited with them again. Was lovely to see the relationship between the pair grow and I can’t wait for things to develop further and follow them on their journey.

Ben and Maddie are now doing the leg work for Ben’s dad’s P.I business much to Geoff’s dismay. Geoff is frustrated with how he has been left physically after events from the first novel and I think he envies Ben and Maddies youth. Even though Ben is really the one that’s supposed to be in charge of the investigation it seems to be left to Maddie to really get stuck in and hurry the case along that they are working on.

The story line to do with the missing pregnant woman was one that really held my interest. Especially as I had no clue as to who was behind it all and the reason why. It sure made for an entertaining and intriguing read.

The Ben Whittle Investigation series is without a doubt great for readers who love a book full of mystery and suspense. With much loved characters like Jessica Fletcher and Columbo, I reckon Ben and Maddie could easily earn their places in readers hearts. A great series and can not wait to read more.

By the end of chapter 5 I was already in. I needed to know what was going to happen next!
The 1st book in this series was good, this just got better.
Hannah has gone missing and she's pregnant, our duo has taken the case on & as it begins to open, evil abounds. Maddie is missing and Ben has to find her.
The story just gathered pace and a different evil appeared. Very good storyline and hoping there's more!

I loved Mark Tilbury's first debut novel but holy smokes Batman, I REALLY LOVED this, his second brilliant piece of fiction. Mark Tilbury has got such a unique, sharp and switched on writing style that I am now a huge fan, a HUGE fan. Ranting, raving, rant, rave...

This novel has a fantastic plot that is brilliantly paced with so much packed in, I was reading so fast I think my Kindle had a problem keeping up and my reading speed was out of this world. Yet again we meet up with the familiar characters from Mark's first novel and it was like Mark heard my prayers because in this novel Maddie features really strongly and I had loved her strong character so much. Woman power!

In case you have not met them yet Ben and Maddie are now working for Ben's father in his private investigation company and I love that Mark tackles the crime genre from a PI/Mystery perspective, it has just as much punch as many crime novels but some added elements that just work really well, although they kind of should not - like his insertion of flashes of brilliant dark humour than really made me snort (very ladylike) a few times! He makes his characters POP off the page also.

The plot revolves around the search for a missing pregnant young woman who is in grave danger and that's just the icing on the cake really. I enjoyed getting into the head (not always a simplistic place to be) of the evil person who really tests Ben and Maddie to the limit. The fluctuating perspectives work really well and you really do build up a picture of how unstable and dark this individual is. Of course, this makes you want more. Or is that just me? Got to love a dark character that has a twisted mind right?

With a tight plot, a cracking pace and so much going for it this is a cover to cover read!

This book is described in the synopsis as a “psychological thriller” and for the first chapter or so it was. Then it turned into what I would describe as a “Cozy mystery”(definition from Wiki: Cozy mysteries, also referred to simply as "Cozies", are a subgenre of crime fiction in which sex and violence are downplayed or treated humorously, and the crime and detection take place in a small, socially intimate community.
That said it’s an enjoyable, easy read. A young pregnant woman has gone missing 4 months ago and no one has seen or heard from her since. As the police are doing nothing (she is an adult and there is no sign of foul play) her mother employs a detective agency to try and track her down or find out what has happened to her. Dubious characters along the way who may or may not be involved take the investigators down some interesting paths.
Maddie and Ben are likeable characters and although naïve are determined to get to the bottom of this and the writing endears you to them. One quote will stay with me from this book: "Dementia is like a terrorist taking hostage of their mind until death paid the ransom.
Not in the league of e.g. Maggie James for psychological thrillers but an enjoyable read nevertheless.

I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an open and honest review

The first chapter is really an amazing start that draws you in immediately, a very intense and dark description of the kidnapping from Hannah's POV.
The descriptions of the kidnapper, a suspect and the victim are excellent.

But the so-called privat investigators are colorless in comparison, their love story seems shallow and they are all three incompetent and way too naive for their profession.

Because of the suspense and the good writing I was prepared to forget about that and give this book 5 stars, but the last 10 % didn't keep the promise for me, too much spiritual babble that was totally unneeded.
