How does a mother protect her child from the unknown?
During a visit to a local theatre, four-year-old Chloe Hollis becomes hysterical. But her mother, Kim, doesn’t realise that this is just the beginning of the nightmare. In the coming weeks, Chloe talks of The Tall Man – Of death.
At her wit’s end, Mel confides in Charles Honeywell, the headmaster at the school where she works. But what Mel doesn’t know is that Charles is linked to what is happening to her daughter.
Will Mel learn the terrible truth? And can she overcome her own tragic past and save her daughter before it’s too late?
The Liar’s Promise is a story of past lives and future torment
Having loved The Abattoir of Dreams by the author I literally could not wait until he brought another book out. Well the wait is finally over.
I would warn people not to start this book on a night. I picked it up on an evening and was so hooked I could not put it down until I had turned the last page. So was a very late night.
The author commanded my attention right from the start. What an opening to a book!
Mel could be anyone. She’s a wife, mother and worker. Her life is no different to anyone else’s until a trip to a theatre causes her daughter Chloe to change.
After the trip Chloe is like Jekyll and Hyde. One moment she will be the adorable and a loving little girl that Mel has always known and then her personality will change to someone that her mum and dad don’t recognise anymore. I have to say I felt so sorry for Mel and Tony as who do you turn to for help?
Mark Tilbury is one seriously twisted author and I can not get enough of it! Dark and compelling, The Liar’s Promise is an intense and gripping read that readers will be unable to tear themselves away from.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
The Liar’s Promise is available to purchase from Amazon.
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 fourth novel, The Liar’s Promise, along with 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.
