BERMUDA JONES AND ARGYLE ARE BACK IN THE THRILLING SEQUEL TO DOORWAYS
Something is killing…
A woman is found dead in her flat on a freezing night in Glasgow, her heart ripped from her chest. With no signs of a weapon or forced entry. Hours later, her heart is delivered to the Necropolis on the outskirts of town.
Six months after stopping the terrifying Barnaby atop Big Ben, Bermuda finds himself on the hunt for a killer in a city he doesn’t know with a police force that doesn’t want him. With no links between the victims and the death toll rising, Bermuda has to face a sceptical detective, a seemingly distracted Argyle and an unknown horror that stalks from the shadows.
All in the name of answering one question…
Who is The Absent Man?
The Absent Man is an urban fantasy thriller that revisits The Otherside and will have you on the edge of your seat.
I really enjoyed Doorways so couldn’t wait to read the follow up to it. It certainly didn’t disappoint and have to admit I was melancholy the closer to the end of the book I got as I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye yet again.
The whole story line to do with the killer in The Absent Man was extremely intriguing. This isn’t a killer that I found myself loathing. I wanted to know more about him and what made him tick as well as the why’s of killing innocent women. Without a doubt there is a lot more to this killer and I was desperate to know more.
Bermuda is your above average troubled agent. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him when it comes to his personal life. He is desperate to be a father figure in his daughters life but work has a habit of getting in the way. I could very much feel his frustration but when he has a killer to catch, what’s a guy supposed to do?
I love that we get to find out more about Argyle in this book. He is such a great character and anyone would be honoured to have him as a partner. Where as he was pretty untouchable in the first book, he seems more fragile which kind of humanised him to a certain extent. Personally for me, he really completes these books. As much as I like Bermuda, Argyle just has that extra bit of something special that will have readers really routing for him.
With plenty of action, thrills, chills and surprises in store, The Absent Man makes a highly commendable sequel to Doorways. The author certainly takes you on an emotive journey of which I loved every minute of it.
My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Born and raised in North West London and now residing in Hertfordshire, Robert Enright has been writing for over 10 years. His debut novel – ONE BY ONE – was self published on Amazon in March 2015, receiving critical acclaim and was nominated for Books Go Social Book of the Year 2015. The violent, revenge thriller gave Rob a path into crime fiction, but the constantly embraced geek within him went a different way. 2016 will see the release of DOORWAYS – published by Urbane Publications – the first in the Bermuda Jones series, a dark sci-fi about an agency dealing with the threat of a parallel world. He can’t wait to write the whole series – if he can put down his Xbox controller or his Nerf Guns!
