BLOG TOUR ~ Dark Objects by Simon Toyne


Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for Dark Objects where I have a review of his latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Tracy Fenton from Compulsive Readers who organised this tour in conjunction with Anne Cater of Random Books Through My Letterbox and Harper Fiction to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else has taken part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of this review so without further ado, here it is:

‘Count to three,’ her mother told her, the last words she would ever speak.

An Impossible Crime Scene

When a wealthy woman is found brutally murdered in the locked fortress of her London mansion. Surrounding her are four mysterious objects, including a book on forensics by Dr Laughton Rees.
An Inescapable Past

As a teenager, Laughton’s life was destroyed after witnessing her mother’s brutal murder. Now a mother herself and forensic analyst, she is an expert on how to read crime scenes – but never works live cases.
An Uncatchable Killer

Pressured by the lead detective to help with the investigation, Laughton begins to realise that the objects left by the body are not just about the victim, they’re also about her. Her childhood was destroyed by one killer. Now she must catch another before her daughter’s is destroyed too.

Well, where do I start with this review!?? Well, I didn't just like it, I absolutely LOVED IT. It was absolutely brilliant and I CAN'T recommend Dark Objects enough, it had me gripped from the first few pages right through to the end, there were some great twists and turns too which I definitely wasn't expecting especially towards the end and I think when I'd read that part I was left open mouthed. I even had to slow down reading it as I didn't want it to end, the story flowed really well and at a fast pace too and there were parts in the book I could feel my heart rate raising a little so it's definitely not for the fainthearted. This is the first book that I've read by Simon and I am really looking forward to reading more of Simon's books and I hope it wont be too long before I get the chance too. He has also written the Sanctus Trilogy and the Solomen Creed Series.

Dark Objects is published and available on Kindle, Audiobooks and from all good bookstores from July 7th 2022.
