19th five-star review of The Survival of Thomas Ford up now on Amazon US:

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, intense, beautifully written and scary as you-know-what, 3 Jun 2012
By Joni L. Rodgers (Houston) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) This review is from: The Survival of Thomas Ford (Kindle Edition)
We all know that cruelty and greed of this caliber exist in the world; we hope we never end up on a collision course with it. We'd like to think that we know how we would respond when our own sense of right and wrong is in the crucible, but every once in a while, a book comes along to remind us that, no, we don't.

The plot unfolds with intense Stephen King style storytelling, but there's something very Cormac McCarthy about the portrayal of Ford, McCallum and Ferguson. The story is about good and evil, damnation and redemption. The author won me over with his fine craftsmanship in the opening pages, and once I was hooked, I couldn't look away, even though I'm not usually a big reader of books that take me to the darkest side of human behavior. A car crash is such a credible, instantly relatable way to slam characters together, and everything that comes after is almost inevitable, given the nature of people in general and these entirely believable characters in particular.

I've recommended this book many times since I read it, and (perhaps the highest praise) had a horrible nightmare inspired by it weeks after I'd stared with dry eyeballs at the final paragraphs.

"The suspense kept on building and that's what held my attention. The characters were well developed and you cared about them until the end - then you cared even more."

The 31st and 32nd five-star reviews of The Survival of Thomas Ford are now up on Amazon UK...thank-you Peter Urpeth and Stuart Ayris!:

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Eerie, clever and original thriller, 26 Jun 2012
By Peter Urpeth - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Survival of Thomas Ford (Kindle Edition)
I became interested in this book after it was recommended to me by another author, and as a result of the string of top star reviews the book has received.Being of the belief that reader reviews are generally very reliable when in good number,I got a copy on kindle. I do not usually read thriller or suspense titles, though I'm always looking for those with an original twist or which are unusually well written, and this promised - and delivered - on both fronts. From the very start of this book, I was, as many other reviews have stated, gripped by the off-the-wall (but also familiar) characters, the twisting narrative and the fine pace and tone of the writing. The story builds with a deliberate and unrelenting pace, not rushed but judged to let events unfold with real tension. I don't like giving plot summaries, so I won't, but I very much recommend this title as a great read, fresh in the genre, tense and with a nicely sinister eye for when the seemingly ordinary and mundane can yield real threat value. I'm looking forward to Logan's next one.

Very happy to report that the 40th Amazon UK review of The Survival of Thomas Ford is now in (which is also the book's 33rd five-star review)
I remember when I started back in January (having published on December 25 while everyone else ate turkey) I thought that it would be IMPOSSIBLE to ever get 40 reviews.
Thank-you very much, Kindledays!

"Outstanding. I lost two days of my holiday to this extraordinary book.
I bought it on the recommendation of someone who seems to have had an instinctive understanding of the sort of book I would enjoy. I'm so glad I listened because once I started reading The Survival of Thomas Ford I was drawn into something really quite extraordinary.
From the first paragraph I was mesmerised. Yet the clear bare prose of the opening pages had a haunting quality that lulled me into a world I had not - could not have from the gentle opening - anticipated. A compulsive read, a story that gripped and shocked with its unsparing clarity."
