Drawn to Frank Crowley, a suspect in Hannah’s disappearance, Maddie is about to come face to face with true evil. As she gets close to Crowley, Maddie...more
The first book was very good, this is a worthy successor. Another case that is fairly unusual. Certainly don't think I have read another book with a similar situation .
Roll on the 3rd book in the series.
This novel has a fantastic plot that is brilliantly paced with so much packed in, I was reading so fast I think my Kindle had a problem keeping up and my reading speed was out of this world. Yet again we meet up with the familiar chara ...more
I developed a bit of a soft spot for Ben and Maddie in The Revelation Room so was delighted to be reunited with them again. Was lovely to see the relationship between the pair grow and I can’t wait for things to develop further and follow them on their journey.
Ben and Maddie are now doing the leg work for Ben’s dad’s P.I business much to Geof ...more
This is the second book in a series and I think that you’re better off starting with the first book as there are quite a few references to the book here. Of course if you want to ignore my solid advice you can easily start here and be just fine, but the first book was pretty good and you would be missing out on some key characterization.
This picks up shortly after the events of the first book and Ben and Maddie are about to start working a ne ...more

This is the first book by this author I have read, but is the second in this series. So impressed was I, that I have now downloaded the first in the series & I'm devouring it as I speak. :)
The novel was a real page turner and the writing so fluid that it was a quick read. The main protagonists are engaging and the writer has left space to delve further into their characters at a later date. Ben & Maddie's burgeoning relationship is so sweet & innocent and it's in direct ...more
I would recommend reading the series in order.
This is quite a difficult book to review without spoiling book 1 for those who haven't read it yet, but I have thoroughly enjoyed catching ...more
Although the first book was a complete story the characters lives continually develop in a series and I really wanted to know how Ben and Maddie were fairing. Was there going to be romance in the air and would this pair o ...more
With Eyes of the Accused (follow-up to The Revelation Room), Mark utilises an easy flowing narrative, punch, often dark, humour, and no lack of technical skill. Mark effortlessly brings a new energy and perspective to an often formulaic genre, shattering any preconceived notions you held about what constitutes a fresh, invigorating, and thoroughly ...more
Private investigators Ben and Maddie are plunged into a disturbing world of terror as they search for missing pregnant girl, Hannah Heath. Drawn to Frank Crowley, an original suspect in Hannah's dissaperence, Maddie is about to learn the true meaning of evil.
He has done it again with book 2. This book had me gripped from start to finish and I just couldn't put it down. With brilliant characters the story was fanta ...more
Once again, the author puts you in the mind of every side of the multi-dimensional coin. POVs from Ben again, the girl in question and the dark, dark mind of the ant ...more
This is the 2nd book in the Ben Whittle series and picks up shortly after the end of The Revelation Room with Maddie, Ben and Geoff picking up the pieces of their lives that were wrecked by Ebb.
Mark has an unbelievable talent for creating characters that are totally unlikeable and this book is no different.
Ben is a very insecure young man but very likeable he is the sort of character you want to take home and mother. Maddie is also loveable she lost her mother at a ve ...more
Ben and Maddie are working for Ben's dad, who really doesn't treat Ben well and I found myself getting so cross with him, but he plays the part well.
Hannah goes missing on her way home from work an ...more
Geoff Whittle is the head of the private investigation firm that Ben and Maddie work for and he is, quite frankly, a horrible man and I really don't know why Ben puts up with him! I know, Geoff is just a character in a book, but it speaks to the author's skill with characterisations that I really didn't like him one little bit.
A pregnant Hannah Heath disappears and Whittle Investigations are tasked with finding her. Geoff urges Ben and ...more
Below is the spoiler, instead of revealing the story I want to say some on the major characters in the novel. I segregate them into dark (evil) and light (good) Ben Whittle and Maddie b ...more
Eyes of the Accused is packed with strong characters that weave their way through what is at heart, a simple storyline. That said, no part of this book is dull. Rather you can sit back, let the author do all the work ...more
No worries! This, to me, was even better than the first. I think because I already knew Ben and Maddie and Ben's obnoxious father Geoff.
I was hooked from the start and taken on a chilling, thrilling roller-coaster of a ride that didn't stop until the final page. I was breathless by the time I'd finished.
This book also had one of ...more
I wonder if it may have been an advantage to read the first book first, as this may have given more depth and greater understanding of the relationship between Ben and Maddie.
I also feel that reading the first book may aid the reader to get into the style of writing and humour of the book.
Overall an enjoyable read, it keeps you guessing and h ...more
Oh dear, I wish I hadn't read this so I didn't have to write this review. I enjoyed the first book and really wanted to like this plot. And the plot WAS good, very good in fact - but the dialogue was awful.
I'm not even going to mention the plot except to say that it was tense and scary and, as I said, very good. The whole book was ruined by the juvenile sounding dialogue, particularly Geoff's (Ben's father) childish and petulant ramblings. How did Ben and Maddie not slap him? How could ...more
