The Retreat is designed to keep you guessing to the very end. A great one to read on holiday.' The Herald Mark Edwards has hit the ball right out of the park with his latest offering, The Retreat. I have always enjoyed his books, rated them highly, but The Retreat is something special. Nail-bitingly special. Breathtakingly special. OMG! I never saw THAT coming special. In a letter to readers, Mark Edwards wrote: "There are few things I like better than receiving a message from a reader whose love of books has been sparked or rekindled by one of my novels. The more people we can turn on to the joy of reading, the better the world will be."I enjoyed reading this so much. The characters are ALL flawed - I don't think I liked any one of them especially. But I was intrigued by most of them and needed to know what was going to happen to them. There are a lot of twists and turns and the story kept me hooked from start to finish. Although I read this in chunks, rather than in one go, I didn't want to put it down. Very well done on that front. I read the end 40% or so in one go and it was EXHAUSTING! It all happens, it's unexpected, twisted and oh so fun.
