Hello! Today I’m very pleased to welcome you to JuliaPalooza for my stop on the Blog Tour for The Last Stage by Louise Voss, which is available now (links below).
About the book
At the peak of her career as lead singer of a legendary 1980s indie band, Meredith Vincent was driven off the international stage by a horrific incident. Now living a quiet existence in a cottage on the grounds of an old stately home, she has put her past behind her and come to terms with her new life.
When a body is found in the manicured gardens of her home, and a series of inexplicable and unsettling events begins to occur, it becomes clear that someone is watching, someone who knows who she is … Someone who wants vengeance. And this is only the beginning…
A dark, riveting and chilling psychological thriller, The Last Stage is also a study of secrets and obsessions, where innocent acts can have the most terrifying consequences.
The Last Stage is the latest psychological mystery thriller from the fab Louise Voss. Having loved last year’s The Old You, I was delighted to be able to join this Orenda Books tour too!
The prologue and opening chapter unnervingly set the scene and the story itself jumps back and forth in time and is told from several disparate viewpoints – both favourite devices of mine.
At first you don’t quite know how each of the strands will come together and I did not spot the clues as they were cleverly laid out throughout the story. I’d had my suspicions early on but fortunately I was completely wrong!
All the characters are well fleshed out and each one leaps off the page (warts and all!)
The book is nicely plotted and well written and it is easy to race through, from the creepy opening to the breathless finale – it is a perfect beach holiday read.
I recommend The Last Stage to anybody looking for a deep, drama-filled psychological murder mystery thriller. Bring on the next Louise Voss!
Thank you to Orenda Books for my copy of The Last Stage and to Anne Cater for my spot on the blog tour.
