If you could discover the murderous truth of a past life and seek justice in this one, would you?

Teenager Lee Hunter doesn’t have a choice when he nearly drowns after spending the night at a derelict boathouse with his best friend, Charlie Finch. After leaving his body and meeting a mysterious light that lets him to go back to the past, Lee finds himself reliving the final days of another life. A life that ended tragically.

After recovering from his near death experience, Lee begins to realise that he is part of two lives linked by the despicable actions of one man.

Struggling against impossible odds, Lee and Charlie set out to bring this man to justice.

Will Lee be able to unlock the past and bring justice to the future?

The Key to Death’s Door is a story of sacrifice, friendship, loyalty and murder.

My Review

WOW oh my…. I really could not stop reading this book I was absolutely gripped from the very first page.  Defiinitely on my Picks of 2018 list.

I am a big fan of Mark’s books and have read every one.  They are all a little bit different from the usual Thriller books and have a slight insight into the spiritual world in them.  This one was no different in that respect but something about this one really grabbed me.

Lee and Charlie are typical teenagers they are not bad lads but do get up to mischief, as do all boys of that age.  They decide to do some night fishing from a derelict boathouse across the river.  Using the tried and tested method of each staying over at the other’s house and ‘borrowing’ a dinghy from Lee’s house off they set on their little adventure.

Fate has a way of striking when you least expect it and an unscheduled storm sets in motion a string of events that the lads did not have the maturity to cope with.  Lee finds himself in the past in another family and then events turn nasty and he and his ‘new’ family are in danger.

The past and present are linked by 1 man and that man is evil personified.  Lee has to find a way to see that justice is served.

I love the characters they are realistic I always admire authors who can create realistic teenage characters and these reminded me so much of my son and his friends at that age.

A jaw droppingly brilliant book that will appeal to readers of many genres.

Thank you to Bloodhound Books for the advance copy.

2017 Author picAuthor Bio:

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 fifth novel, The Key to Death’s Door published along with The Liar’s Promise, The Abattoir of Dreams, and The Ben Whittle Investigations relaunched, 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.
