I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
William Heming is an estate agent. He’s kept a copy of every key to every house he’s ever sold. Sometimes he visits them. He lets himself in when the owners are out. But what will happen if he gets caught?
What will he do next?
The Intruder is a really original book with a cleverly written, well developed narrator and a sinister, gripping plot. I thought that telling the story from Heming's perspective was brilliant and made this book all the more disturbing and chilling. His narrative was really addictive and by about the middle of the book, I'd lost count of the number of times I noticed myself reading with my mouth hanging open from the shock at his latest revelation. He's a complete law unto himself and some of his actions left me in total disbelief but at the same time, no matter how unexpected and sinister his most recent disclosure was, I still found myself sympathising with some aspects of his past, even when I almost didn't want to. It's completely gripping and every chapter leaves you wide eyed and flipping the pages in the hope of getting deeper into Heming's mind and finding out what happens to those who cross his path.
Considering all of the totally shocking moments throughout the book, I was expecting another big shock at the end, however the tone of the ending was thought-provoking and left things on a very eerie note!
Overall, I'm giving The Intruder 4 out of 5. It's creepy and chilling and Heming really got into my head, I'm considering changing my locks!! I'll definitely look out for another book by P.S Hogan.
