About the Book

As a former high-ranking Naval Officer, Paul now works as Head of Security at MI5.
Paul has no memories from before he was ten years old. An accident left him in a coma for 9 months. But was it really an accident?
Soon Paul starts to have flashes of childhood memories, all involving his childhood friend, Owen.
Sally introduces him to her friend, Juliet, the owner of a craft shop. Paul is shocked when he is introduced to Juliet’s partner, his old friend Owen.
Flashes of memories continue to haunt Paul, particularly the memory of his first wife Helena burning in the car crash.
As dark things start to happen, and local people begin dying in horrific accidents, Paul must face his past and will end up fighting for his life.
4 Disturbing Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Well now… this book was very dark and very disturbing…. i’d say it almost slipped into the horror genre with some supernatural elements… you really do need to suspend belief for this one, so if that’s not your bag I’d avoid it…. it also had a dark creepy atmosphere that made me a little more afraid of the things that go bump in the night….
Hitler… a cottage in the woods… missing memories… this book really has all the elements of a really freaky movie…. the kind of movie I’d spend hiding behind my popcorn for most of…. this book really is not for the faint of heart! Perfectly paste… well plotted… with something creepy around every corner…. this book will keep you on edge, your brain on overdrive, your heart beating fast, and your palms sweating… when I was done I needed a shower, a cocktail, and a romcom!
Absolutely recommend to fans of a thriller with a supernatural and dark element…

About the Authors
Robert Tysall was born and brought up in Rugby, Warwickshire, and played the sport the town is famous for in his youth, until he discovered a passion and talent for photography, music and writing poetry and song lyrics. His career so far has been a busy mix of being lead vocalist and percussionist in bands plus working as a professional freelance photographer.
He is currently in a 60s, 70s & Beatles duo, and lives in Warwickshire with his wife, Heather. He has two grown up children. Rob is multi published on the photographic side of things with countless magazine articles, generally working alongside writer Ann Evans.
For many years he has dabbled with ideas for stories and finally the time felt right with this book. It seemed a natural turn of events for both Rob and Ann to team up and write The Bitter End together.
With his debut novel completed, now there’s no stopping him, and two more book collaborations with Ann are currently in the pipeline.
Ann Evans was born and bred in Coventry, West Midlands, and started writing just for fun after giving up her secretarial job to have her three children.
Having caught the writing ‘bug’ there was no stopping her, and as her children grew up, she continued to write for a variety of genres. She spent 13 years at her local newspaper as a Feature Writer as well as working freelance on magazine articles.
She also writes books for children, young adults, reluctant readers and some romance. (Ann Carroll) Her first adult crime novel, Kill or Die was published in 2017 by Bloodhound Books.
Having worked with writer/photographer Robert D. Tysall for many years through magazine work, Ann and Rob teamed up to write the supernatural thriller, The Bitter End – Ann’s first collaboration with another writer. This will be published by Bloodhound Books in the summer of 2018.
