Today I have the pleasure to be part of the Blog Blitz for Kerry Wilkinson’s newest psychological thriller Last Night, Wowzers by golly its a humdinger.
Title: LAST NIGHT
Author: Kerry Wilkinson
Rose Denton wakes up in her car. She has no memory of how she got there. But she knows something bad happened…
There’s blood on the windscreen and bonnet – but it’s not hers and there’s no sign of anything or anyone she might have hit. The last thing she remembers is being in a hotel on a business trip but now she’s miles away.
Back home and her daughter’s boyfriend is missing. The last thing he did was argue with Rose over money. He left no note, no text, no clue as to his whereabouts.
The police have questions – and so does Rose’s family. But those are little compared to the ones she has for herself.
What happened last night? And, perhaps more importantly, does she really want to know the answer?
A totally addictive psychological thriller which will keep you turning the pages until the final dramatic twist.
I really want to shout and scream from the rooftops about how much of a humdinger this psychological thriller is from Kerry Wilkinson, Last Night is an absolutely freaking amazing read.
The opening of Last Night, is the first puzzle to try and crack, Rose has had an accident found herself in a field, with blood on the windscreen of her car, no sign of an injured or dead animal, where has the blood come from has she knocked someone down. The actual feel of this intense beginning of the book, launches you head long into a scenario which no-one would like to be party to, trying to decipher what exactly she did Last Night.
To top it all off when Rose returns home, it becomes apparent that something else has occurred, her daughter Olivia’s boyfriend, Tyler has disappeared, taken off after an argument which Rose was involved in, is she to blame. Rose tries to unravel everything that the Last Night is hiding from her.
The glimpses into Rose’s past offers up a hidden secret, which she is unwillingly to confront or acknowledge, is everything that’s happening to her part of her past coming back to haunt her or is it something else. Is someone playing Rose or is she losing her mind……..
Kerry takes us down the route that Rose is an unreliable narrator, hard to fathom if she is showing us everything, do we take her at face value or is she hiding behind a façade. The characteristic of Rose is gradually revealed, leaving me with the insatiable feeling of a slow burning character, but with an impact at the end that floored my imagination.
Last Night is a book which left me with an unquenchable thirst, a wanting of more, Kerry always manages to fulfil all my desires in his writing prowse, I can’t help the feeling of intensity which Kerry produced in my imagination, an explosive reaction starting from that slow burn.
Thanks to Kerry Wilkinson, Bookouture and Noelle Holten for an advanced readers copy of Last Night, thoroughly enjoyed and easily recommended. If you want a psychological thriller which gradually builds to a dramatic conclusion, then Last Night is for you.
