Gone In The Night by Mary-Jane Riley – Book Review



Some secrets are deadly…

When the victim of a car crash begs journalist Alex Devlin for help before disappearing without trace, Alex finds herself caught up in a mystery that won’t let her go.

Determined to find the missing man, she is soon investigating a conspiracy that threatens some of the most vulnerable members of society.

But will Alex be prepared to put her own life on the line to help those who can’t help themselves?



#4 In The Alex Devin series but can easily be read as a stand-alone.

Set in Norwich and Cora is searching for her brother, Rick…..he lives on the streets, but he’s missing and no-one has seen him since he talked to two men about a job….

There are also other missing homeless people, but the police believe they have just moved on…

Alex Devlin, a journalist, is at an event hosted by the Rider family, when after a ‘disagreement ‘ with her companion, David, decides to walk home….

She comes across a car accident and the wounded victim passes her a pieces of paper, as another car pulls up and the two men say they will take him to hospital….!

Alex tries to find the injured man, but no hospital has any record of him, so she calls the person on the piece of paper…..Cora !

Told in chapters day by day from each of the characters perspectives, which give the reader a great way to get all sides of the same story…it also shows how the homeless are invisible to society and the lack of support for those that need it….tragic and emotive.

Alex is certainly driven, she has a need for the truth and will not just let it lie….a great character, a strong, independent woman….I found myself totally gripped by this twisty, immersive thriller…..just what was the job Rick had been given? Why did he have to escape? Why don’t the police link the disappearances to the bodies being found ?

I can thoroughly recommend this for lovers of a psychological thriller with an emotional heart…

Book reviews, Psychlogical thriller

Song Of The Robin by R V Biggs – Book Review…



Song of the Robin is set in modern times. It tells the story of a young woman’s week long emotional, physical and spiritual struggle against descending madness, and the fight of a husband and daughter, desperate to save her.

The whispered voices and unsettling dreams were puzzling enough, but when the visions began, disquiet crept into Sarah Richards’ heart.

Living a joyless and unfulfilled existence, Sarah’s life, however, is ordered and routine. But one autumn morning she sees a figure waving to her, the figure of a man more ghostly than real

Several times he appears, but is the spectre harmless, or are his intentions malevolent?

Disturbed and intrigued, Sarah endeavours to understand the mystery, to identify her unknown stalker.

But with each visitation, she becomes ever more bewildered, and as her ordered life begins to unravel, she questions the reality of all that she knows, and with mounting horror, even her own sanity.



This is the mysterious tale of Sarah, who hears voices while out walking with her dog…she can’t actually see anyone so thinks it’s just her imagination running wild….

But, she then begins to lose time…coming to with no memory of of the time lost…she is aware of a man following her, he seems familiar and she feels she should know who it is.

One day she returns home and finds all her belongings are missing…but are they or is her mind still playing tricks on her? Or is there something more sinister going on?

Sarah confides in her best friend Rachel, about her constant headache, the voices and the mysterious man she keeps seeing.  Rachel tells her she needs to see a doctor. But Sarah is reluctant and is sure she needs to deal with this on her own but at times does worry whether she is losing her sanity…..

Song of the Robin is beautifully written the creative writing by R V Biggs gradually tells Sarah’s story through the past and to the present….full of suspense and emotion.   A tale of family, loss and fate….wonderful.

Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour and for the promotional materials and a free copy of the book  in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.

R V Biggs lives in a small ex-mining village near Wolverhampton, England, with his wife Julie, and Mags the black lab. He has four grown up children and six grandchildren.
Walking with the dog is a favorite pastime and much of the story line for his first novel was developed during these lengthy outings.
Robert worked for 35 years in telecommunications but changed career paths to a managerial supporting role within a local Mental Health NHS trust. It was during the period between these roles that the concept for Song of the Robin was born.
Robert is a firm believer that destiny and co-incidence exist hand in hand and this conviction extends to his writing. He has a passion for holistic well-being and after first-hand experience of the potential healing powers of Reiki, a form of energy therapy, took a Reiki level 1 training course to heighten his spiritual awareness. Robert’s experiences in these areas helped conceive the ideas that led to Song of the Robin and its sequel Reunion, novels with central themes of fate, love and the strength of family. His writing however is not fantasy but is set in modern times involving real people living real lives.
