Blurb; Arnold Eastwood is thrilled when social services allocate him a flat all of his own. Independence hasn’t come easily to a young man with Downs Syndrome but now he has the chance to live free from his mum’s nagging, find a girlfriend, watch endless movies and make new friends.
Meanwhile a London drug gang is setting up a supply line in Arnold’s town. They’re looking for someone to deliver drugs for them and somewhere to set up a base of operations.
Soon Arnold and his flat are in the drug gang’s sights. Drawn into the dark underworld of crack cocaine and modern slavery, Arnold soon discovers that friends can in fact be deadly enemies.
The question is: can he break free?
My Review; The story follows Arnold whose about to get his own taste of freedom and his own place. Whats not to love about that? However, Arnold has Down Syndrome. The story also follows another young troubled lad chip…
I must say I really loved Arnold! I felt for him. He doesn’t see the bad in people and soon realises he is in with the wrong crowd. That broke my heart. He was better and safer staying at home. I just hope this doesn’t actually happen in the real world but I guess it does.
It’s tense, edgy, chilling and full of suspense. I kept reading purely for Arnold! A real page turner. He seemed like such a real life character to me. Theres always something going on within the story to get your heart racing. Brilliantly written. Fast paced. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars and a brilliant read to get me through my chest infection!

Blurb; When strangers take part in a series of group suicides, everything suggests that a cult is to blame. How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?
Nine people arrive one night on Chelsea Bridge. They’ve never met. But at the same time, they run, and leap to their deaths. Each of them received a letter in the post that morning, a pre-written suicide note, and a page containing only four words: Nothing important happened today.
That is how they knew they had been chosen to become a part of the People Of Choice: A mysterious suicide cult whose members have no knowledge of one another.
Thirty-two people on that train witness the event. Two of them will be next. By the morning, People Of Choice are appearing around the globe; it becomes a movement. A social media page that has lain dormant for four years suddenly has thousands of followers. The police are under pressure to find a link between the cult members, to locate a leader that does not seem to exist.
How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?
My Review; Oh. You want me to try and review this now huh? I will give it a go… This book is unique, original, different and bloody brilliant. It is a story you shouldn’t be enjoying but you do. Messes with your head, like am I okay? Is the author okay after writing this? Are we all okay?
It is a page turner of a read, short chapters, fast paced and brilliantly written. I love how it engages the reader with how these people are people you see everyday and dont give a thought about… It’s a story that makes you think and stands out from all those everyday thrillers and mysterys. Not read anything similar to this before.
A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. A must read. A must buy. This deserves a place in my top twenty reads of 2019. Forget this story? Impossible.

Blurb; Kate Collins has been ghosted.
She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty apartment. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared.
Except for his mobile phone.
Kate knows she shouldn’t hack into Scott’s phone. She shouldn’t look at his Tinder, his calls, his social media. But she can’t quite help herself.
That’s when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn’t recognise. Scratch marks on the walls that she can’t explain. And the growing feeling that she’s being watched.
Kate refuses to leave the apartment – she’s not going anywhere until she’s discovered what happened to Scott. But the deeper she dives into Scott’s digital history the more Kate realises just how little she really knows about the man she loves.
My Review; You know a book is brilliant when you’re that into it, a knock on the door by the postman scares the life out of you and you jump. Yes that happened. After reading quite a creepy part.
Ghoster is brilliantly written, fast paced and I flew through it! It’s creepy, full of suspense and made me tense, it had me on edge in parts. I had to feel sorry for Kate for what happened to her the poor woman, if that was me I would have gone back home. But she’s a determined character refusing to leave.
I loved how in the story she talks to herself or her thoughts are there for us to see. Parts of the story are in a text message format which I loved too. I don’t know if it’s just me but the fact there was no electricity in the flat means she was in the dark made it even worse for me. Will she ever find out where Scott has gone? She has plenty of clues to go off…
A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend! Loved it. Brilliant. Really enjoyed it.
