T.A. Belshaw




T.A. Belshaw
Genre: Noir-Suspense
Release Date: Aug 25th 2015

It began with a trivial moment of carelessness, but the shockwaves that reverberate from this seemingly insignificant incident, spread far and wide.

Ed and his heavily pregnant wife Mary are on an errand for Ed’s ailing father before the pair depart for warmer climes. But the winter of 1962 comes early and one innocuous event and a hastily taken decision will have devastating consequences for the family of young Rose Gorton. Mary’s already fragile mental state is put under further stress while Ed tries to make sense of events that are spiralling massively, Out of Control.





My Review:

I first discovered this wonderful story through a link on Facebook to Trevor’s blog where he had serialized the beginning of the book. I was hooked and wanted more.

When it became available on amazon, I pounced on it. I couldn’t wait to finish reading it to find out how this suspense novella would turn out. Of course, I started over from the beginning to reacquaint myself with the characters and the situation.

From then until the end of the story, I couldn’t put this down! I had to continue reading. I needed to know what came next.

☆☆☆☆☆ to Trevor and his wonderful noir suspense – Out of Control!
