Bloq by [Jones, Alan]

My thanks go to Alan Jones for allowing me to read a copy of this book.   This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.

I had heard so many good things about this book from my other blogger friends who kept telling me to pick this up and read it.  You won’t be disappointed were the words of one friend, just make sure you can forget about what’s around you whilst you read, and I can honestly say she was right.   The cover makes the book mysterious and I couldn’t wait to start this

The book opens with an illegal burial and has you asking questions from the beginning. 

Bill Ingram is waiting at Glasgow train station for his daughter’s visit at Christmas time from London.  After the last train has pulled in and she still hasn’t got off, he begins to worry.  His daughter Carol is not answering her phone and despite numerous messages being left he cannot contact her.  He begins to ask himself why his daughter has not arrived after promising to be on the train.  What could have possibly happened?  Not wanting to think the worse, he travels to London to see if things are alright.  They aren’t!

What follows is every parent’s worst nightmare, a world that makes him leave his job, and take drastic action. (A search that takes over his life, leads him into the mysterious world of what happens in the London Blog nightclub scene, the way the owners dabble in organised crime and the drug scene.)  A search that takes over his life, leads him into the mysterious world of what happens in the Blog’s nightclub, the way the club dabble in organised crime and the drug scene. 

This book is a tense and gripping story and one that had me wishing for a few more minutes to continue reading, not wanting to put down my kindle as I was glued with each page turn, hooked from page 1, and drawn further and further into the story with each page turn.   Reading a chapter and doing the old cliché of I’ll just read one more and then I’ll stop!   

Alan Jones is a fantastic writer and has certainly grabbed my attention with this book and I can honestly say I am so glad that I have one of his other books in my every increasing TBR pile.  I will certainly be pushing this up towards the top and reading this soon.
