I am delighted to share my 4 star review with you today on Blog Tour for The Revelation Room by Mark Tilbury which is out now.
Book blurb The Revelation Room:
Ben Whittle’s father, a private investigator, has been taken captive by a cult whilst investigating the case of a missing girl. When Ben receives a desperate call from his father asking for help he is drawn into a dark underground world.
As Ben retraces the last known steps of the missing girl he discovers his only option left is to join the cult and rescue his father from the inside.
The leader of the cult, Edward Ebb, is a psychopathic egocentric who uses his position to control his small group of followers in The Sons and Daughters of Salvation. When he initiates Ben into the group it soon becomes apparent how sick and twisted Ebb is.
Ben must find his father and the missing girl, but the odds are stacked against him and time is running out.
Can Ben rescue his father and the girl and escape with his life?
And what is the gruesome secret concealed in the Revelation Room?
The Revelation Room is the first book in the Ben Whittle Investigation series. Being a massive fan of psychological thrillers I couldn’t wait to get stuck in.Then this book ended up sitting on my TBR pile for way to long. Well what can I say but wow I am impressed, I actually wished I had read it sooner.
So in the story we meet Ben, who is asked for help by his father Geoff after being kidnapped by a dangerous cult and finding himself close to death. Ben is told not to ring the police because everyone one will die. Ben and his friend Maddie track down one of the cult members. Their only option to rescue George is to join the cult!
But the Sons and Daughters of Salvation are a group of unhinged, brainwashed people living under the spell of evil psychopath, Edward Ebb. When Ben and Maddie are initiated into the group, they pass into a world where only two choices exist: compliance or death. The odds are impossibly stacked against them. The question is, what the gruesome secret locked away in the Revelation Room?
I was gripped from the start to the very last page. I must admit I have a thing about stories with a church theme.This story is dark and warped with some added dark humor absolutely perfect if I do say so myself.
I love the fact that there isn’t too many characters and there is plenty of character background. So we get to know the characters well and I am looking forward to reading more in the series. By the way Ed the cult leader is certainly one disturbing character.
If you’re looking for something dark and twisted this is the book for you, which I highly recommend giving it 4 stars.
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
After serving in the Royal Navy and raising his two daughters after being widowed, Mark finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused.
He’s always had a keen interest in writing, and is extremely proud to have his third novel, The Abattoir of Dreams, published, and The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused re-launched, by Bloodhound Books.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found trying and failing to master blues guitar,
and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.
