I’m thrilled to be on the blog tour today for Enter the Dark, written by Chris Thomas and published by Bloodhound Books.
An anonymous website, a few clicks, and Joe Henderson’s life is changed forever.
‘The Red Room’ is the only place where the inadequacies of a weak justice system are righted and where the line between good and evil becomes blurred. When the lights go up, viewers bid, criminals are punished, and the Brotherhood of the Righteous broadcasts a show like no other.
The room has remained hidden until now, when a video arrives in the inbox of the Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit: the torture and killing of a notorious criminal. But outclassed, outplayed, and torn apart by corruption, is there anything Detective Pete Harris and his team can do except watch?
Their only lead may be the room’s latest bidder, Joe Henderson. Because when Joe found the Red Room, it found him too, and now the Brotherhood are watching through the wires, willing to do evil for a righteous cause, to become the men that even monsters are scared of.
As they pull Joe deeper into the dark web, will he find any mercy and any way out? Or will he be the Red Room’s next volunteer?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Chris Thomas was born near London in 1978 before moving to Buckinghamshire a few months later. He attended the University of Bristol, graduating with a degree in psychology in 1999. It was here that he developed his interest in criminal psychology and serial killers.
After a brief stint working at an investment bank in London, he left the City to work for his wife’s family business, a position he still holds.
Chris is an avid film fan, especially horror, thrillers and dark comedy- something that he tries to blend in his writing. After attending a creative writing course, he gained the confidence to pursue his dream of writing a novel. He self-published his debut novel The Red Room in February 2017 before joining the Bloodhound Books stable and re-releasing the book as Enter The Dark.
Further works are already in the planning, including a sequel to Enter The Dark, which is intended to be even more dark and disturbing!
In his spare time, Chris enjoys karate (holding a black belt) and spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
MY REVIEW: I would like to thank Chris Thomas, Sarah Hardy and Bloodhound Books for allowing me the opportunity to read an ARC of Enter the Dark prior to taking part and being a stop on the blog tour. I can confirm that I chose to read this ARC and all opinions in this review are my own and are completely unbiased.
OH MY GOD! Where on earth did Chris Thomas get the idea from for this novel? I mean seriously, I’m gobsmacked! I don’t know if this review of mine can give it enough justice.
The first chapter was enough for me to read on and by ‘read on’ I mean just about finishing Enter the Dark in one sitting. It was only because I had to run an errand that I had to stop, completing it on my second sitting!
So … imagine this … there’s an anonymous website hosted by the Brotherhood of the Righteous, which allows everyday normal people to bid using bitcoins on auctions that simply put right what the justice system has turned a blind eye to. Violence … yes violence – there is plenty of it and it isn’t easy, weak violence … it’s sickening violence so my advice is ‘put your strong goggles on!’
This is one intense dark read and a novel which I can only say ‘BUY BUY BUY’ – you won’t be disappointed!
