I’m delighted to be opening the blog tour for Your Deepest Fear alongside another huge David Jackson fan, Tracy Fenton at Compulsive Readers.
About this book…
‘Sara! Remember! Victoria and Albert. All I can say. They’re here. They’re-‘
These are the last words Sara Prior will ever hear from her husband.
As DS Nathan Cody struggles to make sense of the enigmatic message and solve the brutal murder, it soon becomes clear that Sara is no ordinary bereaved wife. Taking the investigation into her own hands, Sara is drawn into a world of violence that will lead her in a direction she would never have suspected.
For Cody, meanwhile, things are about to get personal in the darkest and most twisted ways imaginable . . .
I love Nathan Cody! I’m not however a big fan of clowns and I guarantee that you won’t be either after you’ve reached the end of Your Deepest Fear! So now that I’ve handed out that trigger warning for all you coulrophobics out there, let me tell you all the reasons why you need to read this latest in the Nathan Cody series by David Jackson! You don’t have to have read the previous books in the series (although you really should as they are absolutely brilliant!!) but it may help you here to understand why clowns play such a huge part in Cody’s life and why his fear is to be completely expected after what he has been through!
Your Deepest Fear brings to a head events that have haunted Cody since his first outing in A Tapping at my Door. Whilst investigating the murder of Sara Priors husband in a violent and sustained attack, he becomes aware of a connection that falls a little bit too close to home for him and it leads to some very shocking home truths! And I loved how David Jackson lulled me into a false sense of security before hitting me right between the eyes with the unexpected twists. This is one of my favourite series and every book has been leading both the reader and DS Cody to this point so I was gripped from the moment I picked this up, even though I’ve never been a huge fan of clowns myself! I think that one of the reasons they give people the creeps is that it’s impossible to read them due to the masks or face paint that they wear so you never know what to expect-which is probably not a bad thing for poor old Nathan Cody here!!
I flew through this book desperate to discover the truth about the murder of Sara’s husband but more importantly, to see how far Cody could be pushed and whether or not he could survive the biggest threat to his career so far (if he actually has one!!). That sounds really horrible of me doesn’t it, especially considering how much I say I LOVE Nathan Cody! But I’ve been looking forward so much to finding out more about what happened to him “that night” and this book perfectly picks up all those pieces and rearranges them the right way up this time!
Your Deepest Fear is darkly gripping crime thriller with a brilliantly written plot and a flawed but likeable main character. I love David Jackson’s books and really look forward to each new one when it appears. If you’ve never read any of his books before YOU MUST!!! You can thank me later because I know you’ll love them just as much as I do!
