About Mark Tilbury
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 both 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.

This is the first in the Ben Whittle Investigations series and my second Mark Tilbury novel. I can only conclude that Mr Tilbury takes evil to another level. The tension he builds up has plenty of light relief, with comedic undertones filtering through from time to time. I have a huge back-log of reading to do, and tend to shuffle the pack and not read the same author in succession. But I enjoyed this so much, I couldn't withstand the Tilbury withdrawal symptoms whilst knowing I have another jumping out at me from the bookshelf, so it's straight into 'The Eyes Of The Accused' the second in the Ben Whittle Investigations series.
