Rory Fine enjoyed driving his buses, interacting with his passengers, especially the regulars. And he was a person who loved helping people – with a touch of his hand he could remove the worries and troubles from a person; they would be happier and calmer and not realise why. But the wet and rainy night he decided to take the troubles from every passenger as they departed, Rory felt a darkness release from the young woman who had stolen his heart…

Mariana was generally a happy, bubbly person, so when Rory felt the darkness in her which he had removed, he was concerned. He knew there was more to it – this wasn’t Mariana’s way; who had done this to her? Was there a malevolent and evil presence out there which had attached itself to his sweet Mariana?

The Trepan Killer continued to strike – his latest victim much too close to home for Rory. He knew Mariana was in danger but the confusion about his gift and what it enabled him to do; the decisions he needed to make to keep both Mariana and himself safe, was tormenting him. But Rory knew he had to move quickly – he only had a few hours left and then it would be too late.

Could Rory decipher the meaning of the oblique messages he was receiving? Would he be able to stop the twisted and psychotic killer before he struck again? And who could he trust with his secret?

The Troubles Keeper by Aussie author Susan May includes a mixture of genres – thriller, crime and mystery, as well as paranormal plus an element of horror. There was much darkness and violence in this novel and I will admit to skimming over the graphic details. I also picked the killer quite early in the book. Not for the faint hearted, The Troubles Keeper will be one enjoyed by lovers of the dark entity which invades these pages. Recommended.

With thanks to the author for this copy to read in exchange for my honest review.
