BLOG TOUR - Book Review : Turn The Other Way by Stuart James

OMG, Turn The Other Way is one hell of a roller coaster ride from beginning to end.It's a gripping,chilling thriller/horror that holds the reader captive in a vice like grip that's so tight you sometimes find yourself struggling to breath.That's when you actually get an opportunity to remember to breath which is not very often due to the frantic pace,twists and turns and non stop action.

The story flips back and forth between the past and the present and is voiced by a multitude of diverse characters. There's respected surgeon Simon Bairstow whose life falls apart after the death of one of his young patients. Jess and Noah,whose journey home from Jess's parents turns into a living nightmare and Chloe's desperate search for her missing parents.There was characters I liked,disliked,rooted for,changed my mind about and just plain gave me the creeps. There was characters who were not who they appeared to be,betrayals,lies,secrets,decept,gory murders,heart pounding action. This reader's anxiety levels went through the roof a number of times as this edge of your seat story unfolded before my captivated eyes. The horror settings are perfect but not overly described,there's just enough descriptions to set the scene. The too terrified to speak out villagers,dark,sinister country roads,the derelict,secluded farmhouse,oh and the evil,twisted,sinister bad guys and believe me,they are nasty,vicious killers.

This is a well written,absolutely AMAZING book that gives the reader a very bad case of just one more chapter syndrome. I was hooked in from the first page,frantically turning the pages,totally enthralled by the author`s mesmerising storytelling. And that ending,so many books promise twists that you won't see coming and don't deliver on their promise but the ending twist in this one was most definitely shocking and unexpected. I honestly didn't want to put this book down. I would love to watch a film version of this book. How have I not heard about this author before,i can't believe this is his second book and I will definitely be getting hold of a copy of his previous book The House On Rectory Lane.I think Turn The Other Way is worth far more than five stars. I would gladly recommend this book to readers who enjoy reading books written Richard Parker,Mark Edwards,Dean Koontz or Stephen King Very,very good book and highly recommended by little old me.

I’m 45, married and have two beautiful children. Currently, I’m a full-time plumber but would love nothing more than to make a living from my writing.

I hope I write stories and people continue to enjoy them for years to come. That would be completely amazing and a dream come true.
