Firstly I would like to thank Sarah Hardy of Bloodhound Books for inviting me on this Blog Tour for The Eyes of the Accused by Mark Tilbury.
dark and gripping psychological mystery
Fresh from the horrors of their last case, private investigators Ben and Maddie are plunged into a disturbing world of terror as they search for missing pregnant girl, Hannah Heath.
Drawn to Frank Crowley, a suspect in Hannah’s disappearance, Maddie is about to come face to face with true evil. As she gets close to Crowley, Maddie will learn all is not what it seems.
Crowley is just a small part of something much larger. Something so terrible and deranged, it defies reason.
When Maddie disappears, Ben is left in a desperate race against time to find her and uncover the truth.
But can Ben and Maddie both survive this time?
Also available in this compelling psychological mystery series:
The Revelation Room
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
This is the second book in the Ben Whittle series so really I would advise you to read The Revelation Room first, as there are a number of references made back to the story in this book and of course you will then be as excited as I was to be reading The Eyes of the Accused too.
Although the first book was a complete story the characters lives continually develop in a series and I really wanted to know how Ben and Maddie were fairing. Was there going to be romance in the air and would this pair of young super sleuths be carrying on their partnership by investigating cases together? Well OMG meet Mr. Grumpy I thought that after the last case Ben’s dad would have mellowed but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Ok ok I know he is in an adjustment period but honestly rude and arrogant are not new traits. I just can not take to the man. Grrrrrrr
Now the story, well you get the same great team working the case but oh boy just love Mark Tilbury’s mind because it seems like he is literally bursting with so many different angles for the criminal side. It’s like comparing Venus to Mars, you just can’t. Just brilliant! Each one is so unique that it makes it impossible to second guess the plot. How can a pregnant woman just simply disappear without trace? When the police have exhausted all their leads their hands are tied, leaving only one course of action, the missing woman’s mum gets in touch with Ben’s dad through his P.I. business because they can go that extra mile. Ben is a bit more of a thinker but Maddie doesn’t just jump in with both feet she asks how high, how far and adds a flip too! Phew!
There is an endearing sort of innocence about Ben and Maddie which is really sweet but also dangerous professionally. They dive in without giving much thought to the consequences of their actions but all with good intension. It makes for a pretty tense and exciting read and did I mention dangerous? Yikes!
More! More! More!
HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
After serving in the Royal Navy and raising his two daughters after being widowed, Mark finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused.
He’s always had a keen interest in writing, and is extremely proud to have his third novel, The Abattoir of Dreams, published, and The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused re-launched, by Bloodhound Books.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found trying and failing to master blues guitar,
and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.
