BLACK HILL FARM by Tim O’Rourke
Detective Chief Inspector John Walker hasn’t a suspect or motive for the murders at Black Hill Farm. That is until sixteen-year-old Benjamin McCloud walks into Beechers Hope Police Station, asking to be arrested for the killings. During twelve police interviews, Benjamin gives a disturbing confession about his relationship with Andrea and how his love for her became a dangerous obsession.
Finding themselves alone on a remote farm and desperate to stay together, Benjamin and Andrea’s world spirals out of control. And as they fight for survival, every step they take leads them into an ever darker world of deceit, blackmail, and murder.
A dark romance for young adults recommend for sixteen-year-olds and over.
I had seen an ad on Facebook for this book and just the title drew me in. I read the description on Goodreads and added it to my to-read list. Right off the bat I was so engrossed, sucked in to the story that I didn’t want to put it down. This book was written from the perspective of the Detective and his notes of the interview with the suspect, and I actually really enjoyed it that way. It was the complete opposite from any other book that I had read. As the Suspect is telling his story there is enough detail that it left nothing to wonder and I could picture it all in my mind as I was reading. I don’t like to spoil a good book for anyone but I have to admit that I had a feeling about one of the characters but once I got to almost the end of the book I was half right and half wrong about that certain person. The ending through me for a complete loop where I was screaming what just happened here (but in a really good way) I didn’t see it coming at all and was actually kind of sad the book was over. Tim O’Rourke has a new fan. I hope his other book “Zachary Black & The Doorways To Endra” is just as good as “Black Hill Farm” was and look forward to new books from him. As much as I wanted to give this book 5 stars, I couldn’t because of a few (and trust me it’s not many) spelling errors, which I seem to notice a lot of e-books have.
Overall, well done Tim! Thank you for a great, odd story!
