  • Smart & Creepy

    😊 Hold Your Breath is B.P. Walter's latest psychological thriller and an awesome and exhilarating read. The novel features Katherine (Kitty) Marchland who is on her way to Wickton Close Police Station in Newcastle. She has received the telephone call she has been dreading, from DI Cousins of Northumbria Police, requesting her attendance for police questioning regarding events that took place in 1987, when Kitty was just 10 years old. As the police review a suspicious death, Kitty is forced to examine her most painful memories, back when her dad uprooted the Carlson family from Essex to live in a remote cottage in the woods, in the wilds of Northumbria. In the present day, Kitty has written a book, purportedly a work of fiction but claiming it is partly a memoir based on her experiences. Kitty is a questionable narrator, and it’s not obvious as to whether this is deliberate or the befuddled mind of a troubled, frightened young girl. The characters were adeptly constructed and believable in their roles, whether intended to be inherently good, bad or somewhere in-between. The clarity of B. P. Walter's writing made it an easy story-line to follow, and the comfortably paced, tense, and twisty plot went down a treat as it snaked along. The author's writing is of a variety that any thriller fan can appreciate -gilt-edged, and he was able to create a sinister tone that continued until the very last page. Hold Your Breath was a mesmerising story of families, mental illness, manipulation, deception, secrets and oodles more, which keeps the reader guessing and completely attached to their e-reader. Even though parts of this story made rather uncomfortable reading nevertheless, it remained entertaining, smart and creepy. I loved this brilliant thriller and would have given it far more than five stars if I could. Would I read more from B.P. Walter? Yes... the author is obviously a very good writer. My thanks must go to B.P. Walter for writing such an awesome book! 😊 I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my request from Avon Books via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Brilliant and disturbing thriller

    What a brilliant and disturbing read! I enjoyed it from beginning to end. "I need to ask you to present yourself at Wickton Close Police Station, Newcastle tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. to be interviewed under police caution." 2020........A telephone call that Katherine has been waiting for and dreading. In 1987 Katherine and her mother and father leave their home in Grays in Essex to go and stay in a cottage in the woods in Northumbria. Katherine's mother is not well and this move is meant to help her. What happened in this cottage is shocking beyond words. "I genuinely believe the things I witnessed in that cottage in the woods and the area surrounding it damaged me irrevocably." Its a book about mental illness; about the impact on families, how it can destroy lives, about revenge and the subsequent impact on peoples lives. A brilliant must read the book.

  • A fun read

    A fantastic thriller which had me holding my breath as the pages turned. Told in dual timelines from the POV of Kitty, I was pulled into the book from the beginning as she tried making sense of why her parents shifted to an isolated cottage in 1987. My first book by this author, I was overtaken by the creepy atmosphere when sinister things started happening. The author's writing made my fear come to the forefront. The plot was intriguing, the clues were hidden well in the prose. And the ending was quite unexpected. Quite a twisted mind the author had ...

  • Awesome book!

    Awesome book! I absolutely loved it! It definitely wasn't what I was expecting but in a good way. I normally wouldn't like a book like this but this one drew me in and had me hooked. I've never read any of B.P. Walter's books but after reading this I'll be watching for more.

  • Excellent

    Could have done with a little more psychological resolution, perhaps, of the Key Event??
