Ben Whittle’s father, a private investigator, has been taken captive by a cult whilst investigating the case of a missing girl. When Ben receives a desperate call from his father asking for help he is drawn into a dark underground world.
As Ben retraces the last known steps of the missing girl he discovers his only option left is to join the cult and rescue his father from the inside.
The leader of the cult, Edward Ebb, is a psychopathic egocentric who uses his position to control his small group of followers in The Sons and Daughters of Salvation. When he initiates Ben into the group it soon becomes apparent how sick and twisted Ebb is.
Ben must find his father and the missing girl, but the odds are stacked against him and time is running out.
Can Ben rescue his father and the girl and escape with his life?
And what is the gruesome secret concealed in the Revelation Room?
The Revelation Room is the first in a new series of psychological mystery thrillers.
This is the first novel I have read by this author and having read this one I will certainly be reading more.
Ben is very much the underdog in the story. After his dad goes missing, it is up to him to save the day. Right from the start you can see what a sensitive soul Ben is and I really didn’t know how he was going to cope going into such a dangerous situation. Though obviously he doesn’t know that at the time.
Maddie to a certain extent felt like Ben’s safety blanket. It’s obvious the pair like each other but having Maddie there by his side, makes Ben that bit more braver and she helps to push him on into discovering what has happened to his dad and the case he was working on.
The cult has to be one of the strangest I’ve ever come across. Reading of the goings on at the farm where the cult is based made the hairs on my arms stand up. It really creeped me out and Ebb especially is one sick and twisted individual but boy does it make for some gripping reading.
The Revelation Room is a highly enjoyable and entertaining read. It has lots of elements going on and I thought it was a great start to a brand new series. Very much look forward to reading more.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
The Revelation Room is available to purchase from Amazon.
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
After serving in the Royal Navy and raising his two daughters after being widowed, Mark finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused.
He’s always had a keen interest in writing, and is extremely proud to have his third novel, The Abattoir of Dreams, published, and The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused re-launched, by Bloodhound Books.
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found trying and failing to master blues guitar,
and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.
