Strange but Thought provoking.

An unusual storyline which I very much enjoyed.
The narration was good even though the female voices were a little suspect to day the least!
All in all a good read.

What You Wish For

This, the fourth novel by Mark Edwards I've purchased from Audible was another nail-biting treat for the ears. The plot centres around Hastings-based regional newspaper photographer Richard Thompson (yet another character named after a musician, which is a feature of many an Edwards book) meets the beautiful, young and mysterious Marie on a hilltop. He's investigating and documenting alleged alien sightings in the sky over the South Coast; Marie, and her two companions, form part of a small cell of believers. Richard soon falls in love with the enigmatic Marie, who introduces him to the phenomenon of 'visitors' from other planets. All is not as it appears though and Marie's disappearance invokes a series of events which Richard must work through to discover the truth.

Did I enjoy this book? Absolutely - yes, it was classic Edwards in my opinion and contained all of his trademarks - geeky guy whom women wish to seduce!?; Internet trails; seedy goings on and most of all - an attractive flame haired heroine. I was drawn into the story and although it was slightly ridiculous at times, it remained entertaining throughout.

I have now purchased one of Edwards' collaborations with fellow author Louise Voss. I hope it's as good as all of his other work.
