A Lifetime Ago

Author – Jim Ody.

Jim writes dark psychological/thrillers, Horror and YA books that have endings you won’t see coming, and favours stories packed with wit. He has written over a dozen novels and many more short-stories spanning many genres.

Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd.  When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife, three beautiful children and two indignant cats in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.

The Blurb –

This is a tale about how the events of one day have such catastrophic consequences on the future.

Hudson Bell is a consultant for the police. A former DI, he spends his days helping to find missing children.

May and her son go on a road trip to celebrate his birthday; Robert and Nadia buy their dream house by the sea.

But as each look to enjoy a new life, none of them can shake off what happened on that fateful day. One of them blames the others and will stop at nothing to seek revenge.

One accident and five lives changed forever.

Today is my stop on the A Lifetime Ago blog tour. Many thanks to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – This is the first book in a new series, featuring former DI, Hudson Bell.

Hudson Bell spends his time looking for missing children and is contacted by the police to find one in particular. He is already on this case but is grateful to have added resources.

The book is told from different perspectives and you initially wonder how all these people are intertwined but the author has cleverly woven the plot. The characters are interesting and draw you into the story.

Just as you think you have the story all worked out, everything changes and the ending is a huge shock.

You can also read Tales from The Coffee Pot by Jim Ody, which I have also reviewed.
