's review

it was amazing

I was a couple of chapters into a book when Bloq appeared on my kindle and I couldn't resist a sneaky peek – mistake!! After a few vows of ‘one more chapter’ I realised I couldn't put it down and had to keep reading to the finish. This is described as a gritty crime novel and while I can’t argue with that, at the heart of it this is the story of a father’s love and how it drives Bill on his quest to locate his missing daughter Carol. Bill is an ordinary man but quite an extraordinary character and I think every reader will wish that they had a man like Bill in their life. What surprised me most about Bloq was that I cried and had tears running down my cheeks. I won’t say at which point(s) in the narrative for fear of spoilers but I offer this as an indication of how real the characters were. When you are discussing with another reader how you are both missing Bill since finishing reading the novel you know the strength of the writing. This was very different to Blue Wicked and makes me excited to see what Alan Jones has in store for us next.
I received a free copy of Bloq in return for an honest review and my thanks to Alan Jones for that.
