I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you've found me. I'm coming for you next.
After you've read this book, you'll know: the truth is far more twisted...
More lists with this book...
Twisted’ is a novel that certainly lives up to its name!
I think it’s best if I don’t go into detail with this one - the less you know the more you’ll enjoy it. Suffice to say though that this psychological thriller had me turning the pages rapidly to see what happened next. The writing here is absolutely first rate and takes us into the dark world of an obsessive, where any rationale is entirely his, not ours; where the central figure’s view of his actions leave room for little ...more
What a cleverly written book this was. This is definitely written for readers. And most definitely for those that love deeper twists in books that they think they’ve worked out.......but I beg to differ.
This was a puzzled within a puzzle.
Just who is this writer, no face, no identity?
Really made me sit up and take notice!
I do own one of his other books. Not read.....yet. But this sure is an eye opener to talent.
At a diner:
Maria asked for cream and sugar, and it came a lot later than it should have. No tip for Sandy, thought Maria.
That's right. She's one of those people who look for any excuse not to tip. A monster.
Not only that, but this is her car in the parking lot:
Some people just deserve to be hit in the head with a hammer to knock some sense in them. No, that's not an overreaction, ...more
Now the blurb for Twisted really doesn't give anything away and it's what intrigued me the most.
Then I got to chapter 1 and I was hooked!
This book is exactly what the title says.... TWISTED!
Nothing is as it seems, it's perfectly twisty and thrilling and will keep you on your toes.
It's a fast paced, roller coaster will keep you turning the pages.
It's full of gritty secrets, lies, deceit, hidden identity, red herrings, and just when you think you found the ...more

‘Twisted’ is a stand alone, very original in plot and idea and with a completely different ‘concept’ to anything I have read begore
J.T.Le Beau ( living as Paul ) is one of the worlds most successful authors, he is also a recluse, putting it mildly, anyone who finds out who he is dies, its as simple as that
well almost everyone
Maria, his wife, has no idea who she is married to and that he is an author!!??!! she is also having an affair and plans to leave Paul, then she discovers who Paul really is ...more
Who is J.T. LeBeau?
No one has ever met the elusive and successful writer but almost everyone has read his gruesome and twisted novels.
No one has ever seen a photo of him. He has done no interviews or book-signings.
He is a mystery.
He is an enigma and intends to stay anonymous at any price.
Bit of a rollercoaster with some insane characters and a terrific finale. Clever and hugely addictive.
Full review to follow for the tour.
What to say about this book. I really don’t know where to start and even then it is actually very hard to say much about it at all without giving anything away. This one will probably be one of my most evasive reviews so far and for that I won’t actually apologise, as believe me when you read this book for yourself you will be glad I didn’t really tell you anything.
Now what I will tell you is that this novel is ...more
J T LeBeau, the author of Twisted, is a multi-million dollar best-selling author, hiding behind a veil of secrecy. Their publisher doesn’t even know ...more
Usually when I give a review I give a general summary of the story.
However, I think the less said about this story the better.
Your better off going into this book with no clue.
It was a hell of a journey, when I thought I had got to grips with the story I was then smacked across the face with a claw hammer and made to question ...more
With much ado, over the weekend I opened my kindle to read, the prologue was soo intriguing!! The storyline was twisted and went thus, J. T. LeBeau was this famous bestseller but elusive author whom no one had seen ever. Paul lived with his wife Maria, and she found a bank statement for twenty million dollars credited to her husband from LeBeau Enterprises. And ...more
Twisted by Steve Cavanagh...
Release Date - 4 April 2019
Wow where do I begin, every now and then I love a good Thriller and after looking through @net I came across Twisted, I recognised the authors name after seeing a lot of people posting about Thirteen on Bookstagram, which I am yet to read!
So I started this book two days ago and finished it last night! And what a book it is! We follow the story of a mysterious writer called J.T Lebeau, he is renowned world wide but no one knows ...more
Who doesn’t love a great twist? ‘Twisted’ is a book that sells itself on the fact that it has great ones. It’s right there in the title and it’s pretty clear that author Steve Cavanagh has spent a lot of time coming up with devious ways to trick and surprise his readers.
The set up is interesting. JT LeBeau is the world’s bestselling crime writer. His work is beloved by millions of fans but nobody knows his real identity. ...more
Okay I will start by admitting that it’s not me. I am NOT J.T. LeBeau! Or am I?! Yes, Twisted is one of those books that will knock your socks off and then make your toes curl with pure enjoyment of it’s fast paced, brilliantly crafted plot.
Everyone knows I LOVE a twisty book but am often disappointed because I’ve managed to work the twist out from page one. Not that I let that spoil my enjoyment of thrillers as it’s never all about the twist for me. But when the first twist hit me in Twisted, I ...more
The thing is, the book is constructed entirely so that there can be “Twists”. (And just in case we don’t admire them sufficiently we’re even ...more
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:
Steve Cavanagh’s mind is criminally brilliant.
Never has a title been so spot-on.
If you haven’t added this book to your list, I’m coming for you.
Where do I start?
Steve Cavanagh’s name is everywhere. I was lucky to see him during Bloody Scotland but my copy of Thirteen is still waiting for my eyes to dissect it. Still, I had a feeling the guy would push all my favourite thriller buttons.
He did more that this!
Insanely good, Twisted...more
Steve Cavanagh first came to my attention as an author when I read and loved Thirteen by him way back in July last year. Twisted is his latest release and unlike Thirteen which is book number four in his Eddie Flynn series (it can be read as a standalone) Twisted is a standalone and a book that I was eager to get my hands on. After finishing I can safely say that it didn’t ...more
So with all the hype, did I really think it was going to live up to the expectations? Erm….well yes I did! The opening chapter is a scene that is the “present day” and then you are taken back four months ago. In these four months, you think you get to a stage where you ...more
Having plot spirals wound tighter than coiled springs, just when you think you’ve got it all straightened out another one pops up! This considerable scheming is sustained, all of which is consistently sharp, bold, and controlled throughout.
Although I didn’t settle into the ride straight away, once I became comfortable with the direction the book ...more
A best-selling author who remains anonymous, a serial killer and $20 million, what could go wrong?
JT LeBeau is a world-famous, best-selling author but no-one knows his real identity. When Maria Cooper finds something odd about her husband Paul, she believes he may somehow be involved in the author’s mysteries, and his millions. But Maria’s scheming soon ends in tragedy and a ...more
Twisted is just what the title says and quite an understatement actually as it’s crazily twisted, full of drama, clever and totally unpredictable with a humdinger of a climax it was outstanding and I damn well loved every page. To write about the plot is impossible as ...more
Twisted by name, twisted by nature. This was one hell of a rollercoaster ride! Just when you thought it was going one way, BOOM, there was *another* revelation that had me questioning whether what I’d just read was true or not...
I’ve not read any of SC’s books before, but if the pacing and excitement in this book is the same in his other titles I seriously need to stock up on the backlist.
This plot was so enticing and full of drama and I genuinely couldn’t stop reading (oh hello 2am, no I’m ...more
From the very first chapter, I was hooked, and I struggled to put this book down. The suspense that is ...more
