Revelation by Jo Fenton
I have always enjoyed the books by Jo Fenton that I have read and her most recent book, Revelation, was no exception.
The action takes place around a university setting in Manchester. The students are shocked by the apparent suicide of one of their number and the student, Rick, is found dead in halls of residence and then his friends got caught up in the aftermath largely because Dan was in love with Rick and Becky is in love with Dan.
Their emotional journey leads them to dark places connected with to a mysterious Kabbalistic sect and Becky sets out to discover the cause of Rick’s death and to save Dan from an impossible situation.
I particularly enjoyed this novel because of the interwoven characters, interesting setting and description of rituals of the Kabbal sect. This ook would make an excellent book club read and I highly recommend it to anybody who enjoys taught, well written mysteries.
Jo Fenton grew up in Hertfordshire. She devoured books from an early age, particularly enjoying adventure books, school stories and fantasy. She wanted to be a scientist from aged six after being given a wonderful book titled “Science Can Be Fun”. At eleven, she discovered Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and now has an eclectic and much loved book collection cluttering her home office.
Jo combines an exciting career in Clinical Research with an equally exciting but very different career as a writer of psychological thrillers.
When not working, she runs (very slowly), and chats to lots of people. She lives in Manchester with her husband, two sons, a Corgi and a tankful of tropical fish. She is an active and enthusiastic member of two writing groups and a reading group.
