Editorial Reviews


‘Edwards doesn’t need fancy flourishes or clever gimmicks to write the hell out of a story...A white-knuckle, one-sitting read.’ Red Magazine

The Devil’s Work is an assured and effective psychological thriller, from a writer who knows how to tell a compelling and thrilling story.’ My Weekly

‘[The Devil’s Work] has all the hallmarks of a psychological thriller: fear, paranoia, people who are not what they seem, high-wire tension and a shoal of red herrings.’ Daily Mail

The Devil’s Work is clever, contemporary, and chillingly plausible. Mark Edwards just gets better and better.’ —Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go

There are no spoilers in this review, that being said.. Can people stop doing that? People read reviews to see if they think the book might interest them, not to get a short synopsis of the story! Onto the review. Wow! This book will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, and find yourself having to take short breaks just to think about and comprehend what you had just read. I was loving all of the twists and turns, all the way to the very end. Once you think you've figured it out, BOOM think again! I also loved that he incorporated some of his previous books and characters in this book. It's pretty ingenious! Best physiological thriller I've read all year! Make sure you have some time before you open this thrill ride because you start, you won't want to put it down! Amazing work by Mark Edwards... Once Again!

There are two authors capable of making me feel distinctly uncomfortable while reading their books. You know that feeling, it's like when you walk into a room full of people and you can cut the atmosphere with a knife. You want to leave, but you can't because your sense of curiosity is driving you onwards, and you're willing to take whatever is coming, to find out what is going on.

The first is Stephen King. The second is Mark Edwards. This sense of unease was more prevalent than ever while reading The Devil's Work. But this is a very good thing, and I know when I read a book by this author that he is going to invoke every emotion to make me keep turning the pages. In The Devil's Work, Mark Edwards delves deep into the minds of his characters, twisting and turning until you don't know who to trust. Such is the authenticity of his writing, the story played out in my mind as if I was watching it on the big screen. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan, but his latest offering has blown me away. This is, without a doubt, his finest work to date. The transition between past and present is effortlessly blended as we are introduced to Sophie Greenwood and her acquaintances. She lands a job at Jackdaw Books. But what starts out as a dream soon turns into a nightmare, as the many twists and turns bring you a story of love, betrayal, and cruelty.

With razor-sharp suspense, this story will keep you gripped until you've devoured every last word.
Thank you to Mark Edwards and Thomas & Mercer for my early review copy, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

This was my first taste of a Mark Edwards book, but it won't be my last. I need to start by saying--Mark Edwards--you got me! This book has earned five enormous brilliant blinding stars for rocking my boat so hard, it almost capsized. I had to stay up past midnight to see how this was going to end and I need to come up for some air while I take a minute to ponder what I just actually read.

Wow, this book was one fast, fun ride. I read it in two days, stopping for a bit of sleep. This book has everything a great story needs: a likable protagonist, strong supporting characters, realistic dialogue, and a slow build up tense events and threatening situations that lead to a climactic ending that shocks and surprises.

The story starts with Sophie getting the job she has wanted since she was a child, and quickly turns into a lesson on being careful what you wish for as she meets a stream of co-workers who turn her dream job into a living nightmare. As the clashes with one gorgeous co-worker in particular escalate, her family gets pulled into the nightmare and the tension rises. She is convinced that this person is after her job, if not more. Events occur that seem to be linked with Sophie's mysterious past, and she begins to have flashbacks to her days in college. These flashbacks are seamlessly interwoven through the story and with each one a bit of her past is unraveled. During these I definitely felt I was being teased along, gaining just enough information each time to know that the story held much much more in store than I had originally thought.

As the drama unfolds, the flashbacks and the present merge in a gripping race to save her family.

Now this novel is just one of those read it with your back to the wall type books so you can keep your eye on all the entrances and exits. I just felt so darn edgy all the time like I was being watched, a 3D effect in a book as it wrapped around me. This is Mark Edwards and how he makes you feel. You just don't know who you can trust from the work place to home. The only one Sophie can trust as being on her side is Daisy and she is only 4, comforting but not really helpful.

So how did I get to this place from simply opening a book? Well there is a saying, It's not what you say but how you say it, and Mark Edwards just puts the fear of God into me from the prologue, which consists of just one page. By the time I had turned on to Chapter 1, I already didn't trust anyone. The story is set over less than a 3 month period from Sophie's first day in her dream job at a Publishing House to the climatic ending. This present day story is laced with flash backs to Sophie's University days, her connection to this very sort after Publishing House and Franklin Bird.

It is one of those novels where the author lays down the fear and you are left with saying out loud 'don't go in there' or 'don't go down there' but do these characters listen? Hell no! and they take you with them because you have no choice. This really is such a brilliant psychological thriller to keep you on your toes from start to finish. A highly recommended stand alone novel.

I wish to thank Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for allowing me to read this novel in exchange for an honest review.
