He says he is innocent...so why did he lie?

Mathew Hillock was the last person to see eleven-year-old Jodie Willis alive. When her dead body turns up four days later in his garden shed, the police think he’s guilty of her murder. So do most people in the town. But there’s no DNA evidence to link him to the crime.
Battling the weight of public opinion and mental illness due to a childhood head trauma, he sinks into a deep depression.
Can Mathew do what the police failed to do and find evidence linking the real killer to the crime?

The Last One To See Her is a terrifying story of what happens when you’re accused of a crime and no one believes you are innocent.

Rating: 10 out of 10.

Characters

Yet again I don't know how mark does is but he has created such bloody brilliant deep characters that are beyond realistic, terrifyingly so.

Mathew is an exceptional character with so much profoundness. Mark really makes his characters come alive of his pages and lets you get so deep inside their heads that in this case is actually fucking unnerving. You really get a sense of Mathews Mental illness the effects it has on him, his family. And also how people look upon people with mental illness. You can't help but feel protective of Mathew throughout but there is always that little niggle of doubt throughout.

The other characters in this book also slotted in perfectly and the author did a fantastic job of casting doubt on everybody although for me there is one who I wished and thought it was.

10 stars
Writing Style/Pacing

This book was basically a bloody dark but a complete masterpiece from the shocking prologue to the equally as tremendous ending. It takes you on a nail-biting, gritty, emotional rollercoaster ride that has you nailed to the edge of your seat.

Tilbury always delivers such dark poignant twisted plots with realistic deep dark emotional characters. His writing gets better with each book he publishes.

Themes/Settings

The themes in this book are vast from a missing child, murder, mental illness/disability and how the world/people perceive people that are different or have mental illness/disabilities and so much more.

Mark Tilbury always brings so many important dark themes to his books and how they affect not only that person but the people around them. And he does so in a brilliant realistic way that it always surprises me how it accomplishes them.

About Mark Tilbury

I live in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although all my books are set in Oxfordshire where I was born and raised.

I served in the Royal Navy for 6 six years, had a variety of other jobs, and then raised my two daughters alone after being widowed. I finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused in 2016.

I’ve always had a keen interest in writing, and I’m extremely proud to have my sixth novel, You Belong To Me published in Feb 2019, after the successes of The Key to Death’s Door, The Liar’s Promise, The Abattoir of Dreams, and The Ben Whittle Investigations.

When I’m not writing, you can find me exploring and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.
