Book Description

FROM THE BESTSELLING
AUTHOR OF MALICOUS AND AFTER THE EXECUTION

  

Second in the DCI Jeff
Temple series...


  
It's the holiday home from hell, deep in an ancient English forest where no one can hear your screams. Something horrific is going on in the house--something that defies the imagination. Even hardened detective, Jeff Temple, hunting down a brutal killer, is shocked to discover the chilling secret. When American Jack Keaton decides to take his family to the house on vacation, he gets a phone call from a mystery woman, warning him off. But Keaton ignores is. He brings his wife and two children over from Texas for what he hopes will be the trip of a lifetime. As soon as the family arrives, the nightmare begins.
  
Praise for Urban Myth:
 

'Urban
Myth is a great thriller. James Raven has written a real page turner which
managed to keep me away late into the night. It's a real heart-stopper and well
worth a read...but if you live in an isolated house in the woods this is not the
kind of book you want to read before bedtime,'
 LISTED MAGAZINE.



"This was a very satisfying read,
with some solid police work and a plethora of nightmarish events. Terrific fun,
"
  BOOKS MONTHLY.

URBAN MYTH: 

'This is a great book. It gave me nightmares, but I couldn't put it down,'
LISTED MAGAZINE. 

  

ROLLOVER:

'Rollover is a cracking
crime novel. The plot is pacy and compelling - the essence of the polished
'unputdownable' novel,' VIEW MAGAZINE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling and wicked good story! April 30, 2013
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read a lot of books this year and this is without a doubt the BEST one yet. My jaw dropped so many times I lost count. Thrilling plot. Excellent character development. Fantastic twists and turns. Indeed I was drawn in from the first page to the last. I read this book in one sitting. I will be looking forward to his next work. Raven has written a breathtakingly exciting novel which is worth every penny!

1.0 out of 5 stars don't bother reading April 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Throwing in the occasional " I reckon " does not make the main character sound like an American from Texas. The book had good idea so far as the plot went . It was just poorly written .
