Welcome to my stop on the book tour for The Engine House by Rhys Dylan. Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the invite!! Check out all the info and my book review, and let me know what you think.
You can bury the bodies, but you can’t hide the truth.
When a landslip on Pembrokeshire’s stunning coastal path reveals the harrowing remains of two bodies, ex-DCI Evan Warlow’s quiet retirement is shattered.
As the original investigator for the two missing persons eight years before, Evan is recalled to help with what is now a murder inquiry. But as the killer scrambles to cover up the truth, the body count rises.
Working with a new young team, Warlow peels away the layers to reveal the dark and rotten heart that beats beneath the chocolate box tranquillity of an area renowned for its quiet beauty.
But does he still have what it takes to root out the monstrous truth before all hell lets loose?
The Engine House by Rhys Dylan is the first in this series which is so exciting because I absolutely loved this and know there will be more!
The writing is dark, atmospheric, and gritty, which is perfect for a crime thriller. There was enough action to keep me on my toes. I had a lot of trouble setting this down because I was just so invested in finding out what happened.
This book has an excellent cast of well-crafted characters who drive the plot forward. Everyone had a purpose and I never felt confused or uninterested.
Overall, I loved The Engine House. I highly recommend it and I can’t wait to read more!!

Rhys Dylan was born and grew up in west Wales, went away to university in London, but came back to live and work in his country of birth. Along the way he indulged his imagination by writing books for children and adults under various pennames and in a variety of genres.
2021 sees him turning his hand once more to crime with DCI Evan Warlow in the Black Beacons crime series. Spread over 500 square miles, the Brecon Beacons mountain range sits like a giant doorstop at the heads of the South Wales valleys. To the north and west, they nestle in the crook of the ancient kingdoms of Powys and Dyfed, stretching from the eastern Marches to the wild southwestern coast. Many of the mountain peaks in the range have names. Others are simply referred to as black. It is in this timeless landscape that the books are set.
Rhys lives on the edge of the Beacons with his wife and a dog that doesn’t like the rain.
