When Evil Calls Your Name by John Nicholl #BlogBlitz

I am super excited to share to my 5 star review for When Evil Calls Your Name by John Nicholl on Blog Blitz today…..which is out now.

The Book

Even the darkest secrets can’t stay hidden forever…

When twenty-nine-year-old Cynthia Galbraith struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and the realities of prison life, a prison counsellor persuades her to write a diary exploring the events that led to a life sentence for murder.

Although unconvinced at first, Cynthia finally decides she has all the time in the world and very little, if anything, to lose. As she begins writing she holds back nothing: sharing the thoughts she hadn’t dare vocalise, the things that keep her awake at night and haunt her waking hours.

Will the truth finally be revealed?

My Thoughts

Continuing  from White is the Coldest colour …..Yes you must read book one first! Check out my review here http://chellesbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/white-is-coldest-colour-by-john-nicholl.html  So in book two we catch up with twenty nine year old Cynthia Galbraith.

Telling her story has she struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and prison life. Hold nothing back  talking about her parents, life when she was younger and of course Dr David Galbraith….the sicko pedophile who she married leading up to her life prison sentence.

I was totally sucked into Cynthia’s journey and felt like it was just me and her  in prison  with her telling me the story face to face.You can feel the emotion and tension in the author’s writing making me feel sympathetic for her but at the same time wanting to know more.  The suspense in this story was killing me. At the end of the day she is in prison for a reason put you cant help but feel for her not having the best life.

Once again this book won’t be for everyone with the uncomfortable subject matter. But sensitivity is show throughout the author’s writing. This is an excellent written story. I cannot begin to tell you what a brilliant job John has done of portraying the emotions of a female character and it come across over really powerful. Which I found rather fascinating . I would say that this comes with the experience John has had working has a police officer and a child protection officer. 

The story unravels  at a nice steady pace then boom… it  picks up speed when everything is tied together and all our questions are answered. OMG what a book….I absolutely loved it. Which I recommend giving it all the stars!
