    One Reply to “While My Back Was Turned”

    1. I am only giving it a 2 star as I really couldn't get into the story. It just felt like I was chasing my tail and it's like I really couldn't be bothered with the characters and what was really happening with them.

    2. This book started at a steady pace but before long I got really engrossed in this novel. After a few chapters I became totally immersed in the story and forgot that I was actually reading a book, as the text seemed to come to life. Time flew by and I really felt like I was there and that I have actually lived through the journey through the eyes of the lead character, Clayton. I would definitely recommend and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

    3. I picked this one up after the cover caught my eye and I just knew I had to read it. The story held my attention straight away and the book only picked up pace as it went on, so many twists and turns that kept me guessing. The characters, I thought, were really vivid, as were the descriptions. No cookie-cutter or cardboard cut-outs here. While My Back Was Turned is definitely a book worth reading.

    4. I'm so glad I managed to get a copy of this book. I got an arc copy and am so glad I did. Very well written. I found the book to be truly gripping from start to finish. I finished in just a few sittings. Every time I picked it up, I found it hard to put down again which I enjoyed, although it did make me late for work a few times. A fantastic book, thanks again.

    5. wow! I couldn't put it down. Usually these sort of stories tell the woman/wife's point of view and side of the story. This is why this book is more interesting as it tells the story from the husbands view. It was interesting to see the husbands side. So many twists and turns aswell and lots of action!

    6. It only takes a brief momentOnce we knew about Helen's family it was rather obvious how it was going to end or was it? Looking forward to a sequal.

    7. A quick easy read, believable for the first three quarters of the book, the ending was a James Bond type impossible from the far fetched point of view. Guess I've been spoilt by reading so many Peter James books .

    8. I received a copy of While My Back Was Turned for review, but the opinions below are my own and unbiased.Clayton Bentham is trying to make amends to his wife and daughter, after ending an affair with his secretary. He takes them out for a day by the sea, but when his former lover texts him, he sneaks off for a few minutes to call her. When he gets back, they have vanished but his wife’s phone is left behind on a wall.The investigation into their disappearance soon seems to be going against him [...]

    9. Badly written Poor Clayton was forced to have an affair and then felt guilty. When his wife and daughter disappear the police suspect Clayton. That was as far as I got. Clayton was pathetic and the police unbelievable.
