5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping and unusual thriller, 25 Mar. 2014
By 
This review is from: What You Wish For (Kindle Edition)
Having really enjoyed the author's other books (both solo and in partnership with Louise Voss) I was very excited to read this book. The storyline is offers something different, a mix of love bordering on obsession, the hunt for a missing girl and the shadowy world of cults. The main character, Richard, is a joy to read, and the people he comes across on the way to find his missing girlfriend, Marie are realistically portrayed - even if they're not the type of characters you might be used to reading about - delusional misfits and hints of a very shady underworld where aliens - yes - the bulbous headed abduction type - hold the key to the future... for some people, at least. The story harks back to a time when alien sightings were almost commonplace in the media, and the people who believed... and those cynics who flatly refused to. Richard is grounded in reality, yet he is drawn into a world where he has to question the truth if he wants to find his girl. This is not a sci-fi novel - this is a novel about people from different backgrounds being thrown together into the mix. Ultimately it is a story about losing someone, and coming to the realisation that they may not want to be found. Fast-paced and very enjoyable, this is addictive reading from a master of the page-turner.

Highly recommended.

Thank you to the author for the advance review copy.
