I’m thrilled to be on the blog tour today for In Your Name, written by Rob Ashman and published by Bloodhound Books.
Police detective Lucas has become consumed with tracking down the deranged killer, known as Mechanic, and bringing the murderer to justice. Nothing else matters, not even his wife. His marriage is falling apart.
Mechanic has not killed for eight months and the trail has gone cold, then Lucas receives a terrifying letter. In a desperate bid to reignite the case, he tries to convince his boss to mount an operation in Baton Rouge where the letter was posted.
But was the letter really sent by Mechanic?
Not knowing where to turn, with his marriage in turmoil and his career on the rocks, Lucas begins to spiral out of control.
When Mechanic meets the head of a drug smuggling cartel the situation takes a grave turn.
Meanwhile, a bizarre set of murders are taking place in Vegas and Detective Rebecca Moran is put on the case. She will stop at nothing to make a name for herself
Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic
Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.
Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.
It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.
When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.
Rob is delighted that all three books in the Mechanic Trilogy will be published with Bloodhound Books in 2017.
Those That Remain – 22 June
In Your Name – 13 July
Pay The Penance – 8 August
Rob now writes full time and has recently completed his fourth novel titled Faceless.
MY REVIEW: I would like to thank Rob Ashman, Sarah Hardy and Bloodhound Books for allowing me the opportunity to read an ARC of In Your Name 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.
BLOODY HELL!!!!!!!!! Somebody please shake me back to planet earth.
After finishing the first book in the series (Those That Remain), I was waiting with both excitement as well as abated breath for the second in the series (In Your Name). After the astounding and monumental ending to Those That Remain, I didn’t know whether Rob Ashman had anymore of the ‘good serial killer stuff’ in him. You know how it goes … an author comes along, writes a book which blasts you up into space and then the hype dies off, they burn themselves out and then there just isn’t anymore of the ‘good stuff’ in them. Well!!!! This time, by God, Rob Ashman proved on every single level that the ‘good stuff’ isn’t going to be stopping anytime soon. After reading In Your Name, I am still trying to catch my breath.
So, serial killer Mechanic … can I actually admit to liking this hard kick ass character? Mechanic is so good and In Your Name, they unleash a more grittier and repulsive devastation in comparison to Those That Remain, making the lives of those who work for the Florida State Police Department a hellish place to be. More so for Lucas, who lives every second of his life hell bent on catching this serial killing maniac. He has become obsessive, and so much so it is bleeding into his personal life, but when one is hell bent on something, nothing will stop them – and Lucas shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Fast paced (super speed) and full of thrills, chills and spine tingling moments, this novel is for hard core crime fans. If you’re a little faint hearted … BEWARE, reading In Your Name is a health risk, it could be damaging!
Overall, this is a book I highly recommend. I really, truly and honestly cannot wait for book 3 in the series. I am just so glad that between the 3 books, I don’t have long to wait … I’ve never been known to be a girl with much patience.
