I don’t often use my blog to talk about books I’ve read, but I don’t want the publication of Mark West’s ‘Don’t Go Back‘ to pass without saying something about it.
Mark’s been a buddy for the last couple of decades and is also my beta reader – which means he reads all of my novels in draft form and feeds back to me on them. I was delighted for him when he got a contract for mainstream thrillers. For one thing, it means I can read his books! Some of his horror stuff was a bit scary for me.
Don’t Go Back has two timelines that impact heavily upon one another. When Beth returns to the town where she grew up, Seagrave, a seemingly innocuous seaside town, she goes reluctantly, bombarded by memories of why she left. And she isn’t the only one who remembers…
If you love a gripping psychological thriller, don’t miss this one. It’s being launched at just 99p!
