Mysterious deaths, countless lies, and a shocking conspiracy. The Will to Die is everything fans are looking for…and more.

“A thoroughly modern thriller that sucks you in and holds you tight, The Will to Die is a roller coaster ride from beginning to end.”Jay Baer, New York Times Best-Selling Author

In an exhaustive hunt for the truth behind a rash of unexplained deaths in a small town, including that of his own father, what Will Pollitt begins to uncover threatens everything — and puts his own life in the cross hairs.

Are his father’s lies what killed him?

What else will he stir up in the murky depths of a life he thought he knew?

The Will to Die is best-selling non-fiction author and content marketing guru Joe Pulizzi’s debut novel — written at the request of his wife, a die-hard thriller fan.

This is the author’s first steps into the fictional world of writing and he has achieved it magnificently. When Will Pollitt returns to his home town it is to arrange his father’s burial but what makes it even harder is that he had committed suicide in his office. This was really hard for him to accept because his father had been a strong believer in an afterlife so taking his own life should have been a massive no, no.

Oh boy, what a story this turns out to be, whipped up from current day trends it feels all too plausible. Talk about putting that cold rush through your body from top to toe, well it gives you that. Will knows something is just not right so he begins his own digging which soon gets attention.

The story is laced with one line humour, that had me laughing chapter after chapter, which is always a winner with me. When things begin to be pieced together by Will it really knocked me sideways. This game of Cluedo holds something much bigger than I ever thought it would be. Brilliant characters keep the plot moving at an incredible pace and all brought together in a perfect ending. Hope to see more of Will in the future.

I wish to thank the author for providing an e-copy of his book, which I have reviewed honestly.
