Synopsis

Somebody out there wants to hurt them…

When Ben and Deborah leave the city to start a new life in the beautiful countryside, they can almost taste their perfect future – growing their own food, the kids running free, peace and silence.

But as soon as they arrive in their new home bad things start to happen. And it becomes clear that somebody out there wants them gone.

But ex-crime reporter Deborah doesn’t scare easily. This is the life she’s dreamed of for her family and she’s not giving up on it without a fight. 

As the campaign against the family intensifies and becomes truly terrifying, Deborah is determined to unmask whoever is trying to hurt them and starts to dig for the truth. 

What she finds is more twisted and horrifying than she could ever have imagined.

My Review

‘Somebody Out There’ is the first book by Kevin that I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing.  The synopsis was enough to grab my attention and the story sounded like just my kind of read.  So without further ado, I grabbed my Kindle, grabbed a cup of tea and settled down for an interesting afternoon of reading.  I really enjoyed reading ‘Somebody Out There’ but more about that in a bit.

I was drawn into this story from the very start.  I can’t say that I warmed to any of the characters.  I might have read too much crime fiction because I ‘assume nothing, believe nobody and check everything’.  The main characters didn’t exactly endear themselves to me but that’s ok because it meant that I could remain neutral.  I read this book in bursts rather than in one long reading binge.  At times I would become so wrapped up in the story that I lost all track of time and just how quickly I was getting through the story.  The storylines intrigued me and I had to keep reading to see if my suspicions were to be proved correct.  All too quickly I reached the end of the story.  I found ‘Somebody Out There’ to be an interesting and gripping read, which certainly kept me guessing and kept me entertained.

‘Somebody Out There’ is well written.  The author certainly knows how to grab your attention from the start and draw you into what proves to be a compelling read with many twists and turns along the way.  For me, ‘Somebody Out There’ is perfectly paced in that the story starts off as a slow burn but like a snowball rolling down a hill, the plot gathers momentum and leads to a tense and dramatic conclusion.  I felt as though I was part of the story and that’s thanks to Kevin’s very vivid and realistic storytelling.

In short, I really enjoyed reading ‘Somebody Out There’ and I would recommend it to other readers.  I will be reading more of Kevin’s work in the future.  The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 4* out of 5*.
