Book Review: King Of The Road By Nigel Bartlett

This is a book review and preview of King of the Road by Nigel Bartlett that was recently published on 2 February 2015.

Nigel Bartlett is an Australian freelance writer and editor and currently lives in the inner-city Sydney suburb of Redfurn. This is Nigel's first novel.

This is an edge of your seat thriller and suspense story about the confronting topic of child abduction.

David is babysitting his 11 year old nephew Andrew when he goes missing. David becomes the main person of interest the Police are investigating, so if the Police are only looking  for him, David decides to hits the streets of Sydney to find his nephew himself and prove his innocent as well.

This was a fast paced suspense novel about a crime involving young children that just makes your heart ache. But this is such a brilliantly written thriller, I was flicking the e-reader pages so fast it couldn't keep up. There was always something happening to keep your interest and it never stuck on the same topic for too long.

It's quite confrontational some of the parts of the story with crimes against children and I think some readers may find it a difficult subject to read.

I recommend this book to suspense and thriller fans and even to parents with young kids if you live by the words that knowledge is power.

I give this book 5 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:

3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
