  • A great debut

    Three years ago Andrew Muller vanished and has not been seen or heard from since. His mother, Patricia Muller is living every parent’s worse nightmare as she tries to come to terms with maybe never seeing her son again. But there is more to Andrew’s disappearance than meets the eye and it is secrets from Patricia’s past that are about to resurface, which could hold the key to what happened to Andrew. Mummy’s Boy is well structured in its multiple narrators from Patricia, her husband Thomas and the mysterious “Watcher” who’s voice provides the more sinister parts of the story. They are chilling and Jason definitely does a great job here in making the reader uneasy when reading these parts of the story. The characters in this story are flawed and complex and are very well developed and written beautifully. Although not all likeable, each of the characters play out the roles they have been given well. I really enjoyed Jason’s style and how he ramped up the tension throughout as he keeps the reader in suspense as to the reasoning why Andrew vanished. Although a slow burn to start with, once it kicks in, it does so at full steam ahead and it is very hard to tear yourself away from it. Mummy’s Boy is a dark and chilling read that will have you reading well into the night. Just one more chapter I found myself saying, which turned into another then another until there was no more left! It is an addictive psychological thriller but does deal with the sensitive issues, of alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide and physical abuse which may be triggers for some readers. With an eerie cover that immediately draws you in, a strong plot, characters that are well developed and with twists and turns along the way, Mummy’s Boy is a great debut and I look forward to more work from Jason. It was an absolute pleasure to read and review Mummy’s Boy which I recommend. Thank you to NetGalley, Hera Books and J.A. Andrews for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Mummy’s Boy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

  • Character driven dark psychological thriller

    Starting with the scene of the birth and the love that pours out of Patricia towards her newborn son you would think she would make the perfect mother. Don’t let that fool you as she soon begins the alcohol fuelled road to self destruction, it always starts with just one to take the edge off. At seventeen Andrew vanishes and with no note or body we are helpless to watch as Patricia unravels before our very eyes. This book is not just a thriller it is a very character driven book showing the collapse of a person who has made their child their life’s obsession and what happens when they are gone. Told from the perspectives of the mother, father and the watcher, we learn there are many secrets at play behind Andrew’s disappearance. This is one dark read covering many sensitive subjects but the tension is palpable as each secret is revealed. I loved the character of the watcher and her narration was by far my favourite. Who is she? How does she know so much about this family? So much to be revealed and trust me you will keep reading until you get the answers behind the mystery. With some great twists and a few clues scattered throughout this is a great debut and I look forward to his next book.

  • Dark and gripping

    A dark read that will draw you into the story. A slow starter, but once the secrets are revealed it turns into a real page turner that does not disappoint. Very sinister and at times disturbing, but psychologically driven with plenty of twists.
