Today I bring you a review of The Retreat by Mark Edwards.
I’ve been a fan of Mark’s for quite some time after reading one of his other novels, The Magpies. After that I went on a binge and read loads of his work.
I picked up The Retreat not that long ago as I had it pre-ordered but I’ve only just got around to reading it and wow, it was amazing.
I absolutely loved it. The book initially gives the impression that it is heading down a certain road but the twists and turns never fully reveal what is going on until the end.
Mark has such an amazing writing style, you find yourself drawn into the world he creates as the imagery is so realistic and written so well.
Mark creates characters that you feel you understand, like you know them. They all have a depth and soul.
I would give this book a 5 star rating and recommend it to anyone who loves mystery or thriller books.
I’ve picked up A Murder of Magpie’s which is the sequel to The Magpies and I can’t wait to read it.
Thanks for reading
