Having Read Fergus McNeill’s Eye Contact, I was looking forward to
reading this and it did not disappoint.
The scary aspect of
this story is how easily it could happen in real life. Do we truly know our
neighbours the people we work with … the answer is, No!
Graham Harland is called to a horrifying night club crime scene.The state of the person killed expels any
realms of humanity. Shortly after starting on the case he’s pulled of it to
look for a missing woman called Laura. He’s teamed up with DS Imogen Gower a
smart younger Detective.
When Laura Hirsch
first goes missing, all the evidence and witness statements point the finger at
one person, the boyfriend. Or rather ex-boyfriend Matt Garrick.The story unfolds, the reality of someone
wishing their life was more like yours, and the immeasurable lengths they will
go too, so they can be you! But what happens when you disappoint that person?
What lengths will they go too to take your place?
The twist in the
tale, will have you questioning all relationships you’ve ever had … even
scarier, the people around you right now! Who are they? A fantastic read.

As well as writing crime novels, Fergus McNeill has been creating computer games
since the early eighties, writing his first interactive fiction titles while
still at school. Over the years he has designed, directed and illustrated games
for all sorts of systems, including the BBC Micro, the Apple iPad, and almost
everything in between. Now running an app development studio, Fergus lives in
Hampshire with his wife and teenage son. He is the author of Eye Contact, Knife Edge and Cut Out.
Nicky Cooper Browncame
late to this game we call writing. Growing up, up North, she was always praised
for her talents with her hands, rather than her mind, she harboured an artistic
flair often drawing and painting into the night. It wasn't until she moved
south to the Beautiful picturesque New Forest that she took pen to paper so to
speak. Now Nicky enjoys writing short stories and articles and has a funny and
light hearted style, but when it comes to her novels she displays a darker side
and a taste for psychological thrillers.
