What the blurb says: “It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down. But after a perfect start, an encounter with a young couple on a night train forces Daniel and Laura to cut their dream trip short and flee home.
Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what happened that night. But as they try to fit into their old lives again, they realise they are in terrible danger—and that their nightmare is just beginning…”
Mark Edwards’ latest novel takes psychological thrillers to a whole new level of gritty suspense.
Disorientated and unable to cope in their own separate ways, Daniel and Laura are being driven apart by the horror they encountered back in Romania when on their ‘trip of a lifetime’. But whereas Laura doesn’t want to talk about the trip or have any reminder of it, Daniel yearns to resolve the issues he’s battling with before they engulf him entirely. When a succession of strange happenings make him fear he’ll never be free of the past, he seeks professional help, and begins to talk about what happened so he can finally move on.
As the memories of the past threaten to snuff out his future, Daniel battles to get to the truth behind the strange and sinister goings on, and steps up his efforts to convince Laura to talk about what happened. But as both Daniel and Laura start to lose their grip on reality, and people around them start to die, it seems that the past just won’t let them go.
FOLLOW YOU HOME is a real cracker of a psychological thriller – bags of suspense, tonnes of tension and a dark and troubling undercurrent of terror throughout the story. It had me gripped to the very last page. Highly recommended.
