Publisher's Summary

It was the happiest day of her life. Little did she know it was also the last.

When a woman's body is found in the grounds of a ruined priory, Detective Imogen Evans realises she is dealing with a serial killer - a killer whose victims appear to die in a state of bliss, eyes open, smiles forever frozen on their faces.

A few miles away, single dad Ben Hofland believes his fortunes are changing at last. Forced to move back to the sleepy village where he grew up following the breakdown of his marriage, Ben finally finds work. What's more, the bullies who have been terrorising his son, Ollie, disappear. For the first time in months, Ben feels lucky.

But he is unaware that someone is watching him and Ollie. Someone who wants nothing but happiness for Ben.

Happiness...and death.

The Lucky Ones is the terrifying new thriller from the #1 bestselling author of Follow You Home.

Good suspenseful mystery

Enjoyed another Mark Edwards novel. I had it on audio book so missed a couple of chapters in the beginning. I would suggest reading this book as I did not like the narrator AT ALL! Talked too fast and ran sentences together!
But Edwards leaves you hanging until the end as always!

Good story, but not special

I listened to several Mark Edwards mystery/thrillers as well as several he coauthored with Louise Voss. Edwards should stick with his coauthored novels because they are much better.

Superb ending

story was a little disjointed. made it hard to follow. eventually the relationship among the characters becomes clear. then there is an unexpected twist. that twist made me give the story two extra stars

Another Good Story by Edwards

I like every single one of Mark Edwards’ books. I also really like the books he co-wrote with Louise Voss. These kinds of stories are what I enjoy reading most.

This story was a typical Mark Edwards novel- it keeps you on edge and wondering who the killer is. The stories can be a little bit predictable but there were some surprises in this one. The motive for the killings in this story were particularly different/unique, so that gave it some originality. Overall, the book was a good read (hard to put down).

For those who like Edwards, you will definitely enjoy this book. It’s not the best book he’s written, but it’s pretty darn good and I enjoyed it.

Twisted!

I enjoy all of Mr. Edwards books! I was sure that I knew who the killer(s) were but as usual I was wrong. This was a great read. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Another Edwards Thriller

Unusual plot with several twists. Good development of characters and builds suspense throughout. Narrator was excellent and kept action moving with excitement in voice. Some of the action almost seems unlikely till you hear of some real murders or kidnapping with similar scenarios. I have heard three different books by Edwards and I will hear many more.

Lots of twists and turns

I found this an enjoyable listen with well developed characters and enough tension to keep me engrossed.

In the hands of a lesser writer this could have been a mess but Mark Edwards makes it work.


I look forward to reading more by this author.

Gripping Serial Killer Thriller

Mark Edwards never disappoints. Another fantastic thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat over the two days it took me to listen to this book. I enjoyed all the twists and turns which are what Mark Edwards' fans have come to expect from this very entertaining writer. The story had me hooked from the start, made even better by the excellent narration. Every book I have read by this author has been great in my opinion and this one is no different. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

Great Performance, believable characters and story

The story was great, nothing too unbelievable so it kept me engaged and interested. The narration by Simon Mattacks is fantastic, his range of accents is outstanding.....which really brought life to the narrated story.
