Welcome to my stop on Mark Tilbury’s Torment blog tour! I am absolutely OVER THE MOON to be sharing my thoughts on this fantastic read with you all today. If you haven’t read this yet, then what are you waiting for?
Well, what can I say!? Mark Tilbury has done it again! Torment is another outstanding read. I never doubted it would be though as Mark Tilbury is an outstanding writer.
What an opening chapter! I defy anyone not to be gripped as instantly as I was.
Beth and David seemingly have it all, with a happy marriage, a decent income, a lovely home, a baby on the way…. However, returning home to find a wreath hanging above your bed where there was once a dreamcatcher (which has been set alight and left to burn) and a kitchen knife in your pillow with R.I.P written in red lipstick, who wouldn’t be at least slightly freaked out!?
This is just the start of Beth and David’s nightmare. Someone seriously has it in for them, but who and why?
Beth isn’t the easiest of characters to like, if I’m honest, but I totally understood her mood swings and insecurities given what she is going through. David doesn’t really help matters, but then I think men often struggle to cope with things they have no control over and can come across as selfish and unfeeling when, really, they are just trying to ‘get on with things’ as best they can. Interfering friends will never help a struggling relationship either. I can understand why Beth confides in and leans on Kim though.
To say this book is full of suspense would be a seriously massive understatement. I had an inkling who might be involved but couldn’t for the life of me figure out why, and I knew I would be wrong one way or another. Once again, I was blown away when all became clear.
A chilling read which would make an excellent film in my opinion.
Many thanks to Mark Tilbury for my review copy.
Who can you really trust?
Beth Cruikshank couldn’t be happier. She is eight weeks pregnant and married to the man of her dreams. But after returning home from a celebratory meal, she finds a wreath from her sister’s grave hanging above the bed and a kitchen knife embedded in her pillow. There are no signs of a forced entry. Nothing is stolen. And no one other than the cleaner has a key to the house.
And then a campaign of terror begins. Beth becomes increasingly paranoid as it becomes clear that someone close to the family is behind these disturbing events.
But who would want Beth dead?
Can Beth find the answer before it’s too late?
Torment is a story of misplaced loyalty, revenge and sacrifice.
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.
