      An engrossing read. There is a switching between the narratives of Sam Cobb - detective, Matt (Silver) the pop singer and his wife, Lauren. Each character has suffered tragedy, Sam, with the death of his wife, and Matt and Lauren, as their marriage disintegrates and Silver drives away with his twin daughters in the car, one daughter dies, and the survivor, Freya is left traumatised and bereft. Silver, meantime, has disappeared. Whatever becomes of Silver is the mystery, apparently dead, but with [...]

      I reviewed the Kindle edition of this book - and sadly, GR doesn't seem to bring together the reviews in one place. So this is it:Tim Griggs' 'Redemption Blues' is one of those 'don't start it ten o'clock at night' books because if you do, you'll still be there, bleary eyed at 4 am the next morning trying to get through just one more chapter before you finally get some sleep. Except you won't, of course (sleep).I read it on the way to and from London, which given that it's 4.5 hours travelling t [...]

Except you won't, of course (sleep).I read it on the way to and from London, which given that it's 4.5 hours travelling time each way, either on trains or on stations, is not a bad way to do it - I did have to finish the last 3 chapters when I came ho [...]

      I was saddened to see this author had died quite young-how sad. He died just before I downloaded this and I'd no idea. I also bought another by him this year, too.This one I WAS liking a lot but then it started to get all flowery so I packed it in-I can't get along with flowery. It always comes across as a bit precious to me.There were some funny remarks in it-I liked the sense of humour used. I was greatly impressed he could spell discernible as well as every other e-book I've picked up it's mi [...]

      2nd Prize Winner in the 2013 Rubery Book AwardWhen Matt Silver, a world-renowned rock star, crashes his car into the Thames, he apparently drowns, along with one of his twin daughters. This book explores the grief of his wife Lauren and their surviving twin daughter, but also Silver himself as he hides in the underworld of London, disfigured, unrecognisable, working to come to terms with his new existence. Much of it is told from the point of view of Sam Cobb, a policeman who has recently lost h [...]

      I really enjoyed Redemption Blues. I'm not one for rehashing the story line that can be read at the top of the page, I'd rather use a review to pass on my thoughts, so here they are. Redemption Blues cannot be categorised as any particular genre, it's just a good story, well told. The main characters all genuinely develop through the course of the novel and the connection between them continually creates tension. Griggs writes with a pleasing straightforward style and avoids using prose that get [...]

      REDEMPTION BLUES is the story of a rock star who falls from grace in spectacular fashion, along with the effect of that fall on his family and on the police officer charged with tidying up the case. It's skilfully and convincingly written and kept me awake and reading into the small hours - no mean feat. (NOTE: I believe there was an earlier edition of this book some years ago. The one reviewed here is the latest, ebook edition, which has some revisions.)

    • Stephen Howarth says:

      It said it was a crime thriller. But there wasn't really a crime and it wasn't thrilling. Very well written though. I did however scan read the last third. I just wanted it to be over. Thinking back, it was quite memorable. I felt I was actually there sometimes.

    • Rhoda says:

      It took me a while to get into the story, but it was worth sticking with it. Without giving anything away, the story really took off a few chapters in, and then I couldn't put it down. The characters grew on me and it left me wanting more at the end

    • Sarah Morgan says:

      Good crime drama although unnecessary love story as well

    • Paul Steiner says:

      Not my usual sort of thing - and started off rather badly. Characters and situations seemed too contrived/unreal - but I warmed to it after a few hundred pages and was quite gripped towards the end.

    • Simon says:

      I enjoyed this book. The characters were real and developed well. Story had enough pace and ended well.Kept my attention throughout. Recommended. I really like this author.

    • Victoria31 says:

      Slow in places. Not the ending I wanted but all in all a good read.

    • Shonna Froebel says:

      Engrossing but not challenging

    • Kay Spence says:

      Reasonably good read.

    • Jane Morrice says:
