5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut Cyber~Thriller

This review is from: A Born Victim (Kindle Edition)

I came across Richard Rochford's debut novel quite by chance and I'm so glad I did!

It started quite slowly, introducing the main character before leaving her behind for a bit whilst the story built up to bring her storming back in.
The book covers bullying at work, cyber violence that spilled into real life, sexual violence, verbal bullying and murder in the most horrible detail ~ I loved it!!
There was also simmering romance running through the book, some ended happily others never took off...
There were twists and turns galore. Just when I thought I knew who the perpetrators were I was cleverly (and I was happy it wasn't who I thought they were!) shown who they really were.

I really liked the way the main characters were all linked together and thought their personalities were well developed and on the whole very likable. The bad guys were described in a way that made me want to reach through the pages and cause them pain and fear like they did to their innocent victims.

I received this excellent novel from the author himself, Richard Rochford, in exchange for a fair and honest review. Thank You Richard, a well researched debut and I very much look forward to reading your future books.
