The Last One to See Her by Mark Tilbury #TheLastOneToSeeHer #BookReview #BlogTour @MTilburyAuthor #TwistedTilbury

Firstly I wish to thank Mark Tilbury for inviting me on his Blog Tour for his latest book release, The Last One To See Her

The Last One To See Her by [Mark Tilbury]


He says he is innocent…so why did he lie?

Mathew Hillock was the last person to see eleven-year-old Jodie Willis alive. When her dead body turns up four days later in his garden shed, the police think he’s guilty of her murder. So do most people in the town. But there’s no DNA evidence to link him to the crime.
Battling the weight of public opinion and mental illness due to a childhood head trauma, he sinks into a deep depression.
Can Mathew do what the police failed to do and find evidence linking the real killer to the crime?

The Last One To See Her is a terrifying story of what happens when you’re accused of a crime and no one believes you are innocent.


The Last One To See Her


The scene is set with events from the past as Mark Tilbury’s prologue introduction left me stunned! What a horrific opening with the consequences of that night still playing out in the daily lives of the victims of a horrendous crime years later.

Mathew Hillock, in his early twenties, has his problems that make people that don’t really know him, keep a distance. He takes things quite literally, like that morning when a bird came in the house and he told everyone at the shop that someone was going to die. When he sees eleven-year-old Jodie Willis he gets a bad feeling, especially when a man follows her down a path in the park.

Oh boy, Mathew Hillock makes my arms and the back of my neck tingle, I want to mother him but there is also part of me that feels a little unsure about times when I don’t know what he has been up to. Mathew is a character that I think most people ‘will have met in real life’, loving but also unpredictable if he is upset.

Well, Twisted Tilbury really lives up to his reputation as the story unfolds, with some proper belting characters that will do anything to throw the police investigation into a tiswas. This really is a talkie book for me again, as I became very verbal on every page in the last quarter of the book. I was like someone from the Omen with the cursing that was coming from me!

OMG from one extreme to the other, I was speechless. This is a belting story. You aren’t on the edge of your seat, you are behind the sofa. One of Mark Tilbury’s best yet!


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

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 being widowed and raising his two daughters, 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 had seven novels published by Bloodhound Books, including his most recent release, Torment.

When he’s not writing, Mark can be found playing guitar, reading and walking.
