THE WOMAN FROM THE BLUE LIAS - a murder mystery and psychological thriller with a difference...

Toby Turner didn’t expect to stumble upon the remains of a human skeleton, washed down from the cliff top by a recent landslip.

He runs a small bookshop in the quiet seaside town of Lyme Regis in Dorset. His life’s not quite on track; his bookshop’s not doing too well, for one thing, and he’s not sure his relationship with his girlfriend-cum-fiancé Trisha is going anywhere either – at least, nowhere she would like it to go.

Toby takes a walk along the Blue Lias cliffs on Monmouth Beach to think things through, and here he finds the body of a woman; a woman, it transpires, who was murdered in 1978.

The gruesome discovery and the resulting media attention he receives would have been hard enough to cope with, but he soon suspects the woman who keeps coming into his shop is the woman from the Blue Lias, that he is being haunted by the very woman he found on the beach.

What’s more, he finds himself falling for her, eventually feeling he is unable to live without her. Is she real, or is he imagining things? His strange obsession starts to have a negative effect on his life and his health, which begins to deteriorate.

He decides to try and solve the mystery of her death and why she chose him, of all people, hoping by discovering what happened to her all those years ago they can both find peace. And so begins Toby Turner’s bizarre journey of discovery that will lead him into very dark and dangerous territory.

His search leads him to a hotel that used to stand high on the cliff, lost to a landslide in the 1980s, and to an old musician called Steely Jacobs who appears to be linked to the dead woman. But events take an unexpectedly disturbing contemporary turn when Toby discovers his best friend Mark has been secretly amassing information on a number of missing young women going back a decade or more.

He learns about Mark’s secret past and how he'd been implicated in the murder of his teenage girlfriend. Is this tragic death connected to the list of missing young women he's made? And what has their disappearance got to do with the body Toby discovered on the beach, a woman murdered thirty-five years ago? How is all this connected to the mysterious hotel called the Belle Vue, long ago collapsed into the sea, and the aged guitarist called Steely Jacobs?

Not only has he uncovered a body, Toby Turner had inadvertently scuffed away the thin covering of dirt from dark, long-held secrets that will lead him into a corrupt world of vice and murder. His life will never be the same again.

D. M. Mitchell pens yet another taut psychological thriller complete with supernatural chills, peopled with an array of larger-than-life characters, deliciously devious twists and turns, with every seemingly disparate thread coming neatly together in a trademark surprise ending that will leave you speechless…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I like it, but... 20 novembre 2013
Par Don Kidwell - Publié sur Amazon.com

Not the first D M Mitchell book I've read (and I own several more). Thus far I find he generally writes well with a few hiccups as to grammar. With this book in particular I found that the story of murder and ghosts drew me in and that it kept at a brisk pace most especially where it peaked for me 80% in. However, I have to echo another reviewer's sentiment that the final few pages (not so much chapters but the epilogue) kind of let me down. Otherwise, it was an entertaining enough read. Gonna leave you with a few of my favorite lines from the book:

1) All those electronic readers should be set fire to or very soon real books would be dead and gone.
2) My cold, dead Madeline.
3) So would she prefer love and limbo to death and eternal peace?

Last few pages not withstanding, I still look forward to reading more of D M Mitchell's works!

I gave this 3 stars. ...only because paranormal novels are not what I enjoy reading and I didn't realize this was part of the novel. I did finish it and applaud the author for keeping my interest although it was not what I usually read. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy this genre.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A little disapointing 1 août 2013

The book started out very well and interesting but in the last several chapters, it seemed the author just wanted to hurry up and finish the book and the ending was a little blah for me.

Written in the first person about finding a body of a female who has been murdered, the author rambles on using lengthy paragraphs of meaningless prose before arriving on some bones near a sea wall. If, after reading 20% of a novel, one is bored, unable to identify with any characters, finds the style of writing immature and dull, there is only one thing to do… look for another author!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I really enjoy murder mysteries 20 février 2014
Par Diane McIntosh - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book was very well written and left you wondering who the killer was until the end. The only thing was that the story went on and on for a while and the it felt like the author run out of steam and ended quickly.
