Wooo hoooo!!! I’m thrilled to be kicked off this week by opening the blog tour for Paul J. Teague’s psychological thriller Two Years After.
Massive thanks to the fabulous Sarah Hardy of Book On The Bright Side Publicity for inviting me on the blog tour and for my e-copy of Two Years After.
Two Years After: An unsettling psychological thriller with a chilling twist
A shattered life. A tortured mind. A return to work that becomes a living hell …
When Rosie Taylor returns to work after a long recovery from a tragic accident, she can’t believe how much things have changed for the worse.
Not only is there a new HR guy in charge, everybody’s fighting to keep their job and there are some new recruits with very unusual habits.
Rosie needs this job.
Social services are threatening to take her child, she’s struggling to recover from mental illness and if she doesn’t bring some money in fast, she’ll lose the house.
But somebody at work has got it in for her and she’s struggling to hang on to what’s left of her shattered life.
Two Years After is an unsettling psychological thriller which will have you looking over your shoulder next time you go to work.
What Did I Think?
For a psychological thriller, Two Years After has a proper distressing opener. I felt heartbroken and helpless as I read Rosie’s plight and recovery.
But Rosie is a fighter, determined to get herself back to some sort of normality which is no mean feat for her! The return to work is hard after any significant time period (been there twice following mat leave and once after major surgery) so I felt Rosie’s nerves. But no business stays the same and it would appear a lot can change in two years at Willis Supplies Ltd.
I love it when you get that character designed to be hated. I seriously disliked Edward (Mr HR) entirely! His total lack of social awareness was uncomfortable for someone in HR. He made my skin crawl! *Shudder* So glad there isn’t anyone in my office like that (yet)…..
I found this fast paced read very disturbing. Teague has written a brilliant psychological thriller that makes me nervous about going to work, despite knowing the people I work with! I didn’t know who to trust at all and the ending definitely packed a punch to the gut to leave you reeling.
