This is the first book I have read by Mark Tilbury and it didn’t disappoint. It was a twisted affair showing just how great an affair thoroughly Mark Tilbury is.
The book tells the story wonderfully but I found it hard to read in parts not because it wasn’t good but because of how warped it was. It shows a lot that your readers get shocked and have to take a break to let it all sink in.
Wonderful book that is very warped. Can’t wait to see what else this author does.
