I am delighted to share my review with you today on the last day of of blog tour for Scar Tissue by Ollie Ollerton
Ex-Special Forces soldier Alex Abbott escaped the Middle East under a cloud and now lives hand-to-mouth in Singapore. Scraping a living as a gun for hire and estranged from his family, Abbott is haunted by ghosts of the past, drinking to dull the pain. Life’s tough, but there is one upside – at least he’s not in Baghdad.
That’s about to change.
When a job goes badly wrong, Abbott’s in hot water. Next he learns that his military son, Nathan, is missing in Iraq. Knowing something is wrong, needing to find his son and desperate for redemption, Abbott has no choice but to go back.
Returning to Baghdad, Abbott renews old acquaintances and begins his search for Nathan. The body count rises as old wounds open and he struggles to confront his demons, self-medicating the only way he knows how. But when one of his old crew turns up dead in mysterious circumstances and the link with Nathan is clear, Abbott begins to suspect a trap.
But who is the hunter? And who is the hunted?
Scar Tissue is the authors debut novel and clearly brings his special forces experience to life with this cracking story. I have friends who are in the special forces and this story is truly an eye opener.
The story kicks off with plenty of action and doesn’t let you go until the very last page. When we are introduced to Alex Abbott. Alex is a damaged character who you cannot help but like. We totally get to know what goes on inside Alex’s head he is a brilliant character. When we follow him on a pulse racing journey to find his son.
This is what a thriller is all about. It is full of twists and turns and OMG moments. A very exciting on the edge of your seat read….I couldn’t put it down. With some added romance. I love that this book gives the reader a mixture of everything.
All the foundations have been laid down for what is set to be the start of a brilliant new series. Now I cannot wait for the next book.
Thank you to Tracy Fenton for a copy and for inviting me to take part on this epic tour.
