Today I'm on the Blog Tour for the fabulous After He Died by Michael J Malone*.
You need to know who your husband really was…When Paula Gadd’s husband of almost thirty years dies, just days away from the seventh anniversary of their son, Christopher’s death, her world falls apart. Grieving and bereft, she is stunned when a young woman approaches her at the funeral service, and slips something into her pocket. A note suggesting that Paula’s husband was not all that he seemed…
When the two women eventually meet, a series of revelations challenges everything Paula thought they knew, and it becomes immediately clear that both women’s lives are in very real danger.
Both a dark, twisty slice of domestic noir and taut, explosive psychological thriller, After He Died is also a chilling reminder that the people we trust the most can harbour the deadliest secrets…
WOW oh WOW this is the first book I've read by Michael J Malone and I'm sure it won't be my last. I loved this page turner and couldn't put it down. It's a really great fast paced and twisty read.
Paula looses her husband Thomas of 30 years quite suddenly and at the funeral is handed a note by a young woman.
She's also still grieving the loss of their only son but decides to meet up with Cara, the girl who gave her the note and what she reveals makes Paula think she never really knew her husband at all. She decides along with Cara to investigate and they uncover a whole lot of things which could endanger their lives...
I loved the character of Father Joe, Thomas's brother the priest but found Paula's other brother-in-law and his wife cold and unforgiving. I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next - it really is an edge of the seat read! When I thought I'd worked something out things would happen which would totally alter the way I thought the story was going. An absolutely brilliant read which I highly recommend. Loved it.
