today I am on the blog tour for Enter the dark by Chris Thomas – his first novel which has been republished by Bloodhound books.
An anonymous website, a few clicks, and Joe Henderson’s life is changed forever.
‘The Red Room’ is the only place where the inadequacies of a weak justice system are righted and where the line between good and evil becomes blurred. When the lights go up, viewers bid, criminals are punished, and the Brotherhood of the Righteous broadcasts a show like no other.
The room has remained hidden until now, when a video arrives in the inbox of the Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit: the torture and killing of a notorious criminal. But outclassed, outplayed, and torn apart by corruption, is there anything Detective Pete Harris and his team can do except watch?
Their only lead may be the room’s latest bidder, Joe Henderson. Because when Joe found the Red Room, it found him too, and now the Brotherhood are watching through the wires, willing to do evil for a righteous cause, to become the men that even monsters are scared of.
As they pull Joe deeper into the dark web, will he find any mercy and any way out? Or will he be the Red Room’s next volunteer?
This Novel starts off with an interesting premise, none of us know very much about the dark web and the darker side of human nature tends to fascinate people. This novel does have some flaws however – I found the process of solving the crime quite unbelievable and the ending a little flawed there were just a few to many twists for me.
However this is a gruesome novel that raises some interesting questions, such as is vigilante justice ever acceptable and I really liked the idea of having a crime set on the dark web. The author has started off well and could be one to watch this is a solid 4* read for me
