Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Rage by Netta Newbound! Thanks to Books On The Bright Side for my spot on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think in the comments!
Nurse, Lizzi Yates, is assigned to provide end-of-life care to Charlie Maidley, one of Britain’s footballing legends, on the condition she keeps his identity a secret.
Unbeknownst to Lizzi, Charlie’s doctors have agreed to allow his sister, Miriam, to take him home to die on the strict understanding he remains in an induced coma, due to his history of assaulting women—a side effect of his brain tumor.
Miriam goes away on business, leaving Lizzi in charge, but a mishap with Charlie’s medication has Lizzi questioning why he is spending his final days comatose. Deciding he is being sedated without just cause, she makes the call to wake him up. However, a string of events and the discovery of a girl’s body at the bottom of the garden lead her to wonder if she’s made the right decision.
Who is the killer?
Could Lizzi be his next victim?
Netta Newbound has a new fan in me! I was instantly drawn into this story and the characters, and I stayed up rather late finishing reading. I had a theory on every person in the book, but Netta Newbound always found a way to throw me off and make me question my thoughts. That takes an incredibly talented author.
The characters are so well written. I found each one was unique and I loved that no one really seemed trustworthy. It just always felt like whoever I was reading about was a suspect and then BOOM, just kidding.
Loved this plot. I also really loved the finale. It wasn’t rushed, but I was flying through the end. When the reveal happened, I was completely thrown off. I had imagined the murder mystery being solved in many ways, but I loved this ending.
I highly recommend checking out Rage. It’s definitely worth the 5 stars, and it’s in the running for a my top favorite books of the year! Don’t miss out!
Netta Newbound, originally from Manchester, England, has lived in New Zealand with her husband Paul for the past 22 years, but they are on the move again. By August, they will be back in Cumbria, UK, and she vows this is the very last move!
As a child, Netta was plagued by a wild imagination, often getting in trouble for making up weird and wonderful stories. Yet she didn’t turn her attention to writing until after her children had grown and left home.
Most of her inspiration comes from the horror greats–Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Richard Layman.Netta mostly writes psychological thriller novels, all of which consistently rank highly in the best seller categories. She is currently writing a series of crime thrillers with Marcus Brown, her son-in-law and business partner.
