The little twisty bits all wrapped up impeccably well.
Nicely done. I'm embarrassed to say that this horror and killing spree left a smile on my face.
This isn't a bad story and I did enjoy the writing. Unfortunately, it does seem a little long-winded. And there seems to be a trend in suspense novels lately, particularly those whose lead character is a cop, where the cop seems completely inept. They get their killer, but usually due to all the work everybody else is doing. It's almost as if the main character is just there for that reason only...to be the main character.
It's kind of annoying.
This is the third book I've read recently that's made the lead investigator nothing more than a talking head...a trophy, if you will. Or a love interest...
Overall, though, Mark Edwards is an author worth reading and I'll continue to check out his books.
This is something I've always been looking for, a sense of mystery and police chase style actions. In this book, you can feel the anxiety of Ben as he realized he's in a terrifying danger, you can feel the anger as he realized what he failed to notice in his son Ollie. A very realistic psychological thriller and well-researched. You get to see closer in the British police procedures. You know what I like most? A sense of hope for his new love life among the danger that's creeping in from the darkness. I go with him as if I was there in the book, I cheered for his better life, relationships, to put on a fight and protect his family. Literally good characters. An unpredictable story with a twisted ending.
Highly recommend for Mark Edwards fans and whoever loves to see a mystery thriller with some exciting police actions!
I finished this book in just two days, I kept reading on the night even though I was so tired from work and had eye strain.
hope to see more like this one.
It picked up momentum as it went along, and was nearly frantic at the end. I had no idea who The Viper was until it was revealed. The epilogue made me wonder if there's a sequel planned, it seems ripe for it.
I really enjoy his writing style and the details he uses to describe things. I know that he has a tendency to describe sexual encounters very explicitly which I find unnecessary but he didn't go overboard with this book. I'm less of a fan of detective involvement in stories but I was still mostly pleased with this.
Looking forward to the next title!

I have yet to read a bad Mark Edwards book. All of his stuff is fast paced, enjoyable, well written and 'The Lucky Ones' is no exception. Best of all, he bases his stories in the UK and it's such a pleasure to read about English places and people. I look forward to his next offering.
Would you like to blissfully pass away on the happiest day of your life. Well, yes,but only if that is my own choice. What If however the choice is made by a deranged third party?
Who is this mad person and how to stop the carnage. That is basically the story with a few surprises along the way. Populated by fully drawn characters using clever dialogue this is a read in two sessions book.
The Lucky Ones, a serial killer, named by the press as The Viper, has killed three people already, and Imogen, our leading lady detective is getting no where in finding him.
Ben, recently split from his wife, seems to somehow be mixed up in it all. But how? Why?
I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and I read the book in a day.
I loved our leading lady Imogen, and I really would love to see another book written to continue the story.
With other authors, I am tempted to go to the last page to see whodunnit.
But with this book I was happy to let the story unfold, drawing me into its spell.
I loved this book from the first page to the last.
My favourite character was Imogen, a wonderfully talented detective, taken from the tumultuous life in London and into the sleepy West Midlands countryside.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to readers of thrillers and police procedurals
There were often two lady detectives rushing about in the dark in areas with no mobile coverage and no back up.
I still enjoyed it though and love Mark Edwards writing. Always worth a read and guaranteed to be enjoyable and tense!
Would certainly recommend, particularly to readers who like to be kept guessing whilst trying to out guess the author.
