The Lucky Ones by Mark Edwards


What the book is all about?
"When a woman’s body is found in the grounds of a ruined priory, Detective Imogen Evans realises she is dealing with a serial killer—a killer whose victims appear to die in a state of bliss, eyes open, smiles forever frozen on their faces.
A few miles away, single dad Ben Hofland believes his fortunes are changing at last. Forced to move back to the sleepy village where he grew up following the breakdown of his marriage, Ben finally finds work. What’s more, the bullies who have been terrorising his son, Ollie, disappear. For the first time in months, Ben feels lucky.
But he is unaware that someone is watching him and Ollie. Someone who wants nothing but happiness for Ben.
Happiness…and death." excerpt from
What do I think?

I just finished reading this book last Thursday. I was having trouble concentrating when I started reading the book. I was having trouble of my own and it makes my mind wonder uncontrollably. I always like Mark Edward’s story and characters. Somehow I just can’t get into the story at first. This doesn’t feel like a typical Mark Edward story. Then when I get to know a little bit about Ben, I can totally relate to his situation which is kinda similar with what I am experiencing at the moment. The kind of pain he is going through. And then there’s this serial killer who killed people at their happiest moment. He made this victim very happy before killing them in the end. 

I really enjoyed reading this book. I am glad I read it till the end because the ending was epic. It gave me hope that life do happened after a divorce, no matter how ugly the divorce get. 

I recommend this book if you like a little bit of mystery and a little bit of thriller. Even though this is not Mark Edward's best work, I still enjoy reading it.
