About the Author

Mark Edwards writes psychological thrillers in which scary things happen to ordinary people. His first solo novel, The Magpies (2013), reached the #1 spot on Amazon UK. This was followed by What You Wish For (2014), Because She Loves Me (2014; also a #1 bestseller in the UK) and Follow You Home (2015). He also co-writes with Louise Voss. Their novels are Killing Cupid (2011), Catch Your Death (2011), All Fall Down (2012), Forward Slash and a series featuring Detective Inspector Patrick Lennon, starting with From the Cradle (2014) and The Blissfully Dead (2015). Mark grew up on the south coast of England and started writing in his twenties while working in a number of dead-end jobs. He lived in Tokyo for a year before returning to the UK and starting a career in marketing. He now writes full-time and lives in the West Midlands, England, with his wife, their three children and a ginger cat. When he’s not writing or looking after children, Mark reads a lot, devours TV box sets and spends far too much time on Twitter and Facebook, where he loves chatting with his readers.

The Devil's Work is an exceptionally well-constructed, gripping, psychological thriller. It's the first novel I've read by Mark Edwards and phew, I loved it! Sophie Greenwood is returning to work in the publishing sector after being a stay-at-home mum to young daughter Daisy. She's secured her dream job at Jackdaw Books and is determined to make a success of it. However, she soon discovers things aren't quite as they seem. What really happened to her predecessor and why is colleague Cassie overstepping the mark? Sophie desperately wants to fit in and be respected but feels threatened from those around her. Someone is trying to frighten her and events soon take a sickening turn... The Devil's Work seamlessly flits between the present day and Sophie's former life at university. Events are carefully and skillfully interwoven culminating in a thrilling page-turner of a ride!

The Devil’s Work is a psychological thriller that takes place in England, which only made me want to read this book even more. I love the setting Mark Edwards chose and that the main character is a working mother. When the book first starts, Sophie is returning to the work force after taking four years off to be with her daughter. She has her dream job at a children’s publishing company and things seem to be looking good. As we soon find out, things are not as good as they seem. Her predecessor went missing, she loses one of her team members, and one of the other team members seems a little too overzealous. Sophie begins to grow suspicious of her assistant Cassie and things escalate from there. While Sophie is dealing with all this in real time, the book has flashbacks to her days at University. We as readers find out that she used to be best friends with her employer’s (publishing company’s owner) granddaughter. This timeline too, has numerous twist and turns along with shady characters. I enjoyed the flashbacks because they added more depth to the story without seeming forced. This book takes the reader on a rollercoaster of emotions and keeps you guessing. I was enthralled while reading it and couldn’t wait to see the outcome. I also loved the mystery that Sophie’s University years added. I highly recommend this book if you like psychological thrillers.
