Bedlam by B.A. Morton

Synopsis from Goodreads:

If you lost the love of your life, how far would you go to get them back? 

Joe loves Kit. Everyone thinks she’s dead. Joe knows she’s not. Detective Joe McNeil would do absolutely anything. When Joe breathes life into a crime scene victim, he discovers what anything really means. Nell will use whatever is necessary to ensure she survives, including Joe. Is she really a victim, or merely the weapon being wielded by a much more cunning foe?

Against the background of a multiple murder investigation, Joe struggles between his love for missing Kit and his growing obsession with the enigmatic Nell. Plunged headlong into a spiralling nightmare of kidnap, murder, and betrayal, his relentless search for the truth jeopardizes his career, his sanity, and his life. But for Nell, the risk is even greater. A haunting tale of obsessive love, ultimate sacrifice, and deadly consequences.

My review:

This book is fabulous. If you like crime and mystery then this book is for you. I loved it and it is up there with my top favourite books of this year. There is also a hint of supernatural elements throughout the book which only add to the novel’s mystifying storyline.

The book goes straight into the thick of the plot without any unnecessary fluffiness and the ball is rolling from page one. We meet Joe McNeil, the fallen-from-grace detective, who is lost in his own world of grieve after the disappearance of his girlfriend Kit, never giving up hope of finding her.

And then he meets Nell, the strange girl that seems to have power over him; the girl that seems to whisper in his ear without being close. Nell, who thinks he can save her, from whatever danger she can see coming. And somehow he knows she is connected to Kit and that without Nell, he will never find out what has happened to the love of his life.

This is a novel of suspense. It’s fast paced, with great developed characters and plenty of mystery to keep the reader going right until the end. There are plenty of very clever twists and turns and I can honestly say this book kept me guessing right until the end.

Thank you to Babs Morton and TBConFB for access to this great book in return for an honest review.

My rating: 5/5
