Deadly Harm by Owen Mullen

I was more than a little excited to receive a copy of Owen Mullen’s latest release to read and review here on my blog.

I have read EVERY Owen Mullin book published to date and again highly recommend this extremely talented author who has a fascinating way of leading you deep into the story within the first few pages.


It’s been five years since Mackenzie Darroch was abducted and held captive in a derelict house.

She thought she’d found her way out of the darkness.

She was wrong.

When she witnesses a car crash and saves the driver’s life, it sets in motion a chain of events that will alter both their futures.

The two women get involved in a high profile police case and draw the attention of a ruthless reporter.

Gina Calvi is convinced Mackenzie is not what she appears and is prepared to do anything to prove it.

Meanwhile, across the city, Kirsty McBride, a young single mother, is persuaded to leave a violent relationship. Her partner, Malkie Boyle a Glasgow hardman, is due to be released from prison. Once back on the street and bent on revenge, Boyle is determined to find the people responsible for stealing his family from him.

Can Mackenzie save them or will Boyle get his revenge?


MOMO’s REVIEW                   

Owen Mullen has done it again!  

The author has very cleverly given us a fancinating story which can be read as a standalone novel. However for those who have read other books from Owen Mullen you will enjoy the name drops and woven links to the Charlie Cameron series!

Deadly Harm picks up Mackenzie’s story around five years after her horrendous abduction which was the thriller released a year ago,  In Harm’s Way.  Mackenzie’s way of moving on is to dedicate her life, and home, to support women who have suffered domestic abuse however her safe refuge is in for a bit of turbulance as a chance encounter brings a new resident and once again the house is full of women supporting other women.  This is all good until someone else needs help but Mackenzie feels unable to help and must turn away due to the house being full.  However this then leads to a very quick downward spiral of events which leave Mackenzie broken vowing to help whatever the circumstances!

Deadly Harm is a gripping tale packed full of action, twists and a dash of the unexpected all perfectly paced to keep you hooked page after page.

Thank you to Owen Mullen for the opportunity to read and review this awesome five star intriguing read.
