Welcome to my stop on the book tour for Painted Fire by Mark L. Fowler. Read on for more info and my review!
Actress Kate Tolle falls victim to an illness that baffles the medical world.
In desperation her husband Ben appeals to the public, and an anonymous benefactor comes forward. Soon the couple find themselves on a flight bound for San Francisco.
Where the enigmatic Merle is waiting.
Kate’s health appears to improve as people around her die horrifically. Merle tells Ben that healing comes at a price and questions what he’s willing to pay.
But what does Merle want?
And what is the chilling truth waiting out in the desert … in Las Vegas and beyond?
Painted Fire is as intriguing as its eye-catching cover. Once I started reading, it was very difficult to set down. The vivid descriptions really set the scene and kept me inside the story.
This is quite the page turner with fantastic characters as well. I truly enjoyed the first person point of view. It allowed me to get to know Ben even easier.
This was also a very atmospheric read. I thoroughly enjoyed how this book brought me into the pages. Make sure you have time to read this one, because you won’t want to set it down!
Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours and the author for the review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Mark writes detective crime fiction, and psychological and supernatural thrillers. He is the
author of the popular Tyler & Mills detective crime series set in Staffordshire. RED IS THE
COLOUR was shortlisted for the 2018 Arnold Bennett Prize and begins with the grim
discovery of a schoolboy who disappeared thirty years earlier. BLUE MURDER involves a
missing singer and a murdered guitarist, elevating an obscure band to sudden fame and
fortune. THE DEVIL WORE BLACK unveils the mystery of a crucified priest. The latest
book in the series, THE SMELL OF COPPER, finds Tyler out on a limb as the detectives
uncover high level police corruption. All the books can be read as standalone crime novels.
Other detective mysteries include THE BATHROOM MURDERS. A series of women are
found hacked to death while taking a shower. This is the first in a new series set in
Manchester, featuring female detective Charlie Reed. TWIST has the eponymous private
investigator returning, against his better judgement, to the city of nightmares to look into the
strange case of a dead philosophy student. THE MAN UPSTAIRS introduces hard boiled
Frank Miller, discovering he’s a fictional detective and that his author is plotting to kill him.
Mark also writes psychological and supernatural thrillers. SILVER finds journalist and crime
writer Nick Slater obsessed with an unpublished manuscript that a best-selling author was
working on when she was murdered, and which her family refuse to publish. SEXTET
explores the twisted rivalry between twin sisters, the weird games they played as children,
and the rising murder rate in a small English town. COFFIN MAKER is a gothic tale. Death
is sent two apprentices amid warnings from an out-of-favour priest that the devil has arrived
on Earth. Mark’s latest book PAINTED FIRE finds a writer travelling to America’s West
Coast in a desperate bid to find a cure for a baffling illness afflicting his wife. An anonymous
benefactor has offered to help, but at what price?
