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.
Mark Tilbury Author bio:
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. His latest novel, The Last One To See Her will be published 4th June 2020.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found playing guitar, reading and walking.
I was so enamored with this book as it had just what I always like a warped book that has such great characters.
In this book we see a lot about mental health with a number of characters. It also shows a lot about bullying.
Matthew was a character who goes into fugues and while he goes into these he seems to have an illusion in which he is chatting with himself and getting advice.
That shows a warped mind and it’s what I love. It gives you enough and keeps you wanting more.
Mark Tilbury is one author that I haven’t seen a book of his that I haven’t loved. He is skilled at writing with emotion as well as writing some of the best characters I have seen in books.
