Happy Publication Day Owen Mullen

I have read and reviewed this brilliant new release by Owen Mullen.

In Harms Way is a riveting domestic thriller set in Glasgow. The story is a brilliant white knuckle read and if you have not read any of his other work I would urge you to go read the three books currently available in the Charlie Cameron series – each one better than the last.

What if someone you loved was in harm’s way?  

What if you were being stalked and no one believed you?

What if you were abducted in broad daylight?

What if you were held captive in a cellar?

What would you do?

Mackenzie Crawford screamed.

 

What if your wife admitted she had a lover? 

What if she went out without saying where she was going?

What if you discovered she’d left?

What would you do?

Derek Crawford fell apart. 

 

What if a troubled woman disappeared?

What if her brother begged you to help?

What if there was no evidence of a crime?

What would you do?

In Glasgow, DI Andrew Geddes puts the case to the top of his list.

In Harms Way by Owen Mullen

The first thing to say is that whilst Owen Mullen’s latest release with Bloodhound Books – In Harms Way – is set in Glasgow, it is not part of the Charlie Cameron series.  He is making us wait a little longer for that!

 MoMoBookDiary Review                   

I highly recommend, Scottish author, Owen Mullen. In my opinion you are guaranteed a gripping Scottish noir from this author which will have you captivated from the first page to the very last.

In Harms Way is a riveting domestic thriller set in Glasgow. The story focuses on the family dynamic when faced with Mackenzie’s unexpected disappearance. The author cleverly introduces each character’s depth to show how the family deals with the situation and the secrets and misunderstandings come to light – it keeps the pages turning.

Owen Mullen writes a brilliant stand-alone white knuckle read and if you have not read any of his other work I would urge you to go read the Charlie Cameron series – each one better than the last.

Thank you to Net Galley and Bloodhound Books for the opportunity to read and review this five star intriguing nail-biting read.

Strangers on a Bridge by Louise Mangos

MoMo’s Book Diary recommends this dark and gripping thriller.

This debut novel by Louise Mangos is set in the Swiss Alps and is nail-biting. The story strongly focuses on Alice and Manfred. Manfred is about to jump off a bridge and Alice spots him as she is running past….. something I like to think anyone would do – but then the story takes a twist!

This is a slow burner of a thriller where I found I could relate to Alice and, to a point, understand her actions – I fear I may react in a similar way – however the story at times becomes frustrating and somewhat unbelievable.  I couldn’t understand the way some characters reacted but as a novel (and not real life) then this was very well written and a scary warning to everyone to be kind but protect yourself first!

I will be recommending this novel to friends and will be watching for any other releases.

Thanks to Louise Mangos, HQ Digital and Net Galley for the opportunity to read and review this gripping novel.

Synopsis

She never should have saved him.

When Alice Reed goes on her normal morning jog in the peaceful Swiss Alps, she never expected to save a man from suicide. But she does. And she shouldn’t have.

Adamant they have an instant connection Manfred’s charming exterior grows darker and his obsession with Alice grows stronger.

 In a country far from home, where the police don’t believe her, the locals don’t trust her and even her husband questions the truth about Manfred, Alice has nowhere to turn.

 To what lengths will Alice go to protect herself and her family?
