Introducing Standedge Tunnel: the longest canal tunnel in England.
Last year six students went in, and two and a half hours later, the boat reappeared on the other side with only one of the students, unconscious, and the dog.
The case of the Standedge Six was largely kept from the national media. The police investigation concluded that the only remaining student, Matthew, killed his friends, hid the bodies on the boat and returned later to move them to an undisclosed location.
Matthew is in prison . . . but maintains he is innocent.
Robert Ferringham is grieving for his missing wife, Sam. So when Matthew contacts him for help with his case, promising information on Sam, Robert has no choice but to help. But can he trust Matthew?
And how will he solve the insolvable case?
A very happy publication day to Chris McGeorge!!! His new novel, NOW YOU SEE ME, is out now and it’s my absolute pleasure to welcome you on my stop on the blog tour. Huge thanks to Tracy Fenton for inviting me to join the blog tour and to Orion for providing me with a copy of the book.
Have you read Guess Who? I did, I read it last year and I loved it and since then I have been waiting for a new novel by Chris McGeorge. Once again, he proved he can masterfully create a plot so intricate and full of twists that I didn’t figure out what really happened and who was guilty until it was all revealed. At the center of the story is Robert Ferringham. He is an author and journalist who is looking for one thing: the truth. The truth about what really happened to the woman he loved and the truth about the mysterious case of five students who disappeared into thin air while crossing a tunnel on a boat while Matthew, the only one to come out of the tunnel, is accused of having killed them and hidden their bodies. Can solving the case of the Standedge Six really lead Robert to discover what happened to his wife?
NOW YOU SEE ME is gripping, beautifully written, and sinister. There were moments that kept me on the edge of my seat, moments where I said “I knew it!”, moments when I I thought “this is such a fantastic twist!”, and some emotional moments when the author explores in details the different levels of grief and how people react differently to losing someone they love.
The characters feel very realistic, some likable, others not so much, but all perfectly crafted and well-developed. Add a self-paced and addictive plot, a dark atmosphere that creeped me out and gave me goose bumps, and a small town setting where everyone is keeping secrets and I can honestly tell you that NOW YOU SEE ME is a fabulous page-turner!
