*BLOG TOUR* Fifty Years of Fear – Ross Greenwood ★★★★★

Blurb:

Could you forgive murder? What if it was something worse?

A childhood accident robs Vincent of his memories, causing him to become sensitive and anxious around others. His differences attract bullies, and he comes to rely heavily on the support of his family.

After the devastating loss of his parents, a remarkable woman teaches him to embrace life and, little by little, he realises the world is far more forgiving than he imagined. When fragments of his memory return, he begins to unravel his past.

Who was his mother? What kind of a man is his brother, Frank? And why does death surround them?

Fate is cruel. History is dark. Things are not as they seem.

Perhaps he should have stayed at home.

My Review:

I want to start by saying I loved Ross’s previous book The Boy Inside and looked forward to reading this one with very high expectations. I was not disappointed, yet again another brilliant story! This story is written well, easy to read, fast paced and a very deep thought provoking read. I would highly recommend this story to you all and the previous books by this author. Ross is an upcoming author we all need to keep an eye on in the future and I cannot wait to read more upcoming books by this author. I have nothing to fault with this story, a great read! A well deserved five stars from me.

*BLOG BLITZ* A Justified Madness – AB Morgan ★★★★★

Blurb: 

Can you really tell the difference between madness and sanity? 

Mark Randall goes to great lengths to get himself admitted to an acute psychiatric ward and, despite being mute, convinces professionals that he is psychotic. But who is he and why is he so keen to spend time in a psychiatric hospital?

When Mark is admitted, silent and naked, the staff are suspicious about his motives.

Dealing with this, as well as the patients on the ward, Mark’s troubles really begin once he is Sectioned under the Mental Health Act. When decisions about his future are handed to Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Giles Sharman, Mark’s life goes from bad to worse. 

Drugged, abused and in danger, Mark looks for a way out of this nightmare. But he’s about to learn, proving that you are sane might not be easy as it sounds…

My Review:

I absolutely love stories that focus on psychiatric wards and ‘patients’, I find the whole subject of being sane/insane very interesting and love stories like this. The title for this book suits the story perfectly and the cover is perfect too. 

A Justified Madness is easy to read, fast paced and a belter of a story which will have you hooked ans unable to put the book down. I would highly recommend this story to you all and I award a well deserved five stars. I think this story would also make a brilliant film! Brilliant. Enjoyed reading this one. 

Degrees of Darkness – Tony. J. Forder ★★★★★

Blurb:

Pre-teen girls are being abducted from their homes and their families murdered.  When Frank Rogers, once a DI with the Met and now running his own debt collection agency, is told that his own daughter is missing, his son murdered, he naturally wants to become involved with the case. 

Soon Frank’s face is all over the news. In an unexpected turn of events, the killer contacts the police and says he is willing to talk, but only to Frank.

When the body of the first abducted girl is discovered, Frank realises it is a race against time to save his daughter. 

In order to solve the case, Frank must work out how the killer is picking his victims. 

But how do you catch a murderer who is hiding in plain sight? And can Frank unravel the mystery, when he has so much to lose?

My Review:

I love the cover of Degrees of Darkness. Can I also mention how many 5 star and 4 stars this book has received so far and I am going to add to that by giving my own five star review! 

Degrees of Darkness will have you hooked from the beginning and on the edge of your seat until the end of the story. It’s one of those books you don’t want to finish but at the same time you do, cannot win. This story is well written, easy to read and a one of a kind story. I enjoyed reading this story and would highly recommend this story to you all if you haven’t read it already. 

I have high expectations for future stories by Tony after reading this one and look forward to reading more by this author in the future. A well deserved five stars from me. Gripping story with plenty of turns to keep the reader engaged throughout
