Every aspect of Kathy’s life is dominated by her abusive bully boy husband. Now she’s pregnant and in fear for her life. Can she ever escape him?
Following three full-length thrillers, John Nicholl has now written 'Bully Boy Blue', his first standalone novella. It is a fast-paced, heart-racing read that I gobbled up in one sitting.
The main characters are Kathy Conner and her husband Michael. To the outside world Inspector Michael Conner is an excellent detective and above all an exemplary loving and patient husband to his mentally ill wife. Everyone wonders just how he copes with his wife's condition. However, within the confines of their house, the reality couldn't be more different.
With novellas you can't say much in reviews for fear of spoiling the plot. All I'll say is that I really enjoyed reading this one and ended up devouring the whole book in less than an hour. I found myself shouting at Kathy to get a grip and wishing I could punch the brute on his face. I rushed through the book to see how it will all end, but I could never have envisaged the ingenious plan Kathy comes up with in the end. Clever girl!
With thanks to the author for an ARC of the book which I voluntarily accepted to read and review. Recommended!
