BLOG TOUR: Dishonoured - Jem Tugwell



Dan has worked hard for the perfect life. He has a loving wife, beautiful kids, a fabulous home and is a successful businessman. 

One afternoon Dan steps onto his usual train and sees the waitress who served him an hour earlier. It all seemed so normal, but it was the most dreadful mistake. Four stops later, Dan is a criminal who has lost everything. He’d only just met her, so why did she destroy him—and why did she say 'Sorry'? 

Dan battles through a web of lies and deceit to clear his name and win his life back, but first, he needs to find out who plotted his downfall.

What did I think?

I discovered Jem Tugwell through his amazing iMe series so I was very eager to read his first psychological thriller and I was not disappointed.  Dishonoured is an edge of your seat novel that had my brain constantly screaming 'WHO DID IT?' as I raced through the pages to find out as fast as I possibly could.

It's scary how fast your life can be flushed down the toilet; Dan went from cloud nine to the gutter in the time it took for him to take a short tube ride home.  It's a set up that destroys every part of Dan's life, sees him alienated from his family and friends and leaves him with a criminal record.  With a cast of characters who all had something to gain from Dan's fall from grace, everyone is a suspect.

Dishonoured is SO GOOD!  I couldn't put it down and I couldn't read it fast enough.  I love that Dan refuses to lie down and accept his fate, choosing to confront his suspects despite their best efforts to avoid him.  I had my own suspicions about who was responsible for the set up but I was completely wrong footed and I almost lost my eyebrows as they shot so far up my head when I was finally proved wrong.  

With a razor-sharp plot and lightning fast pacing, Dishonoured is a phenomenal psychological thriller.  Jem Tugwell is an incredibly talented author and definitely one to watch; if you haven't discovered Jem Tugwell yet then you're missing out on a real treat.  Dishonoured is absolutely brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

I was gifted an ebook to read and review as part of the blog tour and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
