This book was a complete surprise package for me and nothing quite what I was expecting but it was actually so much better. How do you take a serious storyline like a cult holding a man against his will and being led by a loud, charismatic but totally off the wall man who calls himself the Father and inject dark humour into it? You might think there is no chance of that blending well, but by golly Mark Tilbury has done it and it's what made this book really stand out from a lot I have read. A da [...]
All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipI have a somewhat sick fascination with the idea of cults, they just intrigue me so when I read the blurb for this one, I just knew I had to read it. Having previously loved Tilbury’s The Abbatoir of Dreams I was eager to read some more of his work and this book had some of the great qualities that I enjoyed the first time around. Ben is a reluctant PI, his father Geoff is the one who does the real investigating and he normally just helps him around [...]
“The Revelation Room” is the first book in the Ben Whittle series penned by Mark Tilbury and has recently been relaunched by the brilliant Bloodhound Books. For those already familiar with Tilbury’s work this series will not disappoint, this is a gripping and highly enjoyable psychological thriller.Ben Whittle’s father Geoff is a private investigator, and has been kidnapped by a dangerous cult called the Sons and Daughters of Salvation. His only hope of survival is shy and unassuming Ben [...]
This is the first novel I have read by this author and having read this one I will certainly be reading more.Ben is very much the underdog in the story. After his dad goes missing, it is up to him to save the day. Right from the start you can see what a sensitive soul Ben is and I really didn’t know how he was going to cope going into such a dangerous situation. Though obviously he doesn’t know that at the time.Maddie to a certain extent felt like Ben’s safety blanket. It’s obvious the p [...]
Dark intent? Check. Religious irreverence, bordering on satire? Check. The blackest of humour tinged with biting dialogue? Check. I’m all in for the revelation Room.Told in third person-past tense throughout, Tilbury’s Revelation Room is a hugely enjoyable slash across the veneer of decent society, exposing some of the grimmest and most graphic insights into the depths of the human soul and capacity for denial, cruelty and for goodness.Our main protagonists, undercover in a cult, are beautif [...]
I have to admit I wanted to read this since I read the first excerpt, and it didn’t disappoint. The story begins a little slow, but that’s to flesh out the two main characters and set the stage for their relationship. For me, it was well worth the wait. Because of that, I developed a strong attachment to Maddie and resented any time she was put into danger. LolThe other characters were just as well done, and you either feel sympathy or loathe them. The latter was reserved for Edward Ebb whil [...]
Private investigator Geoff Whittle takes on the case of a missing girl who he suspects has joined a cult. He makes a terrifying call to his son Ben, as he takes, what sounds to be, his dying breath. In order to track down his father and the missing girl, Ben enlists the help of Maddie, but they soon get embroiled in the workings of a crazy cult. Great characterisation and a story that takes you on a horrifying adventure that will leave the reader gasping out loud at times. Can't wait to read mor [...]
A tremendous psychological thriller from talented writer Mark Tilbury. It's a definite 5 star book for me.
The Revelation Room is the first book in the Ben Whittle Investigation series and is being relaunched by Bloodhound Books. After having read and loved The Abattoir of Dreams a while ago, I was really excited about discovering some of this author’s earlier work and I was not disappointed.When Ben’s father, a private investigator, goes missing while working on a case of a missing girl, it’s up to Ben to rescue him. There’s just one little problem. Ben isn’t exactly the most confident guy [...]
The Revelation Room is a great read, and impressive for a first novel. I enjoyed its dark humour whilst enjoying the story of Ben Whittle’s search for his missing father, who has been taken prisoner by a religious cult. The novel ends nicely with a lead into the next in the series. I’m interested in reading more of Ben Whittle’s adventures and to explore his relationship with Maddie.
We open with Geoff staring into the muzzle of a gun, stuck in a tree with his camera and refusing to admit why he's really up there. "Shoot him," we hear a man say and his somewhat dimwitted sidekick does just that. He falls out of the tree and then is dragged to The Revelation Room where they have determined he is The Imposter and they must drive the devil out of him. He finds one window of opportunity and calls his son, Ben, on his watch phone and barely has time to tell him he needs hel [...]
This was my very first Mark Tilbury book and it absolutely won't be my last! It was well written and it had me on the edge of my seat for the entire time I was reading it, I just couldn't put it down. Ben Whittle is just living his life - he is a young man with a bit of a crush on a girl and his life is pretty normal for someone of his age. Until he gets a call from his father who has been taken by a cult. Suddenly Ben finds himself in the middle of all the action, and the cult leader is not som [...]
This story begins centered around Ben Whittle. To say Ben lacks confidence is an understatement. He’s awkward, unsure, and touches on annoying but the young man finds the courage to try and help his father. Ben’s father is a private detective who has gone missing while trying to help a girl who joined a bazaar cult. In his last conversation with his son, Ben’s father told him not to involve the police. Ben doesn’t understand it, but he knows his father wouldn’t have said this without a [...]
Thanks to Mark Tilbury and THE Book Club for the chance to read and review this book. Ben Whittle's father goes missing whilst investigating the disappearance of a girl who has joined a strange religious cult. Urged on by his friend Maddie, he reluctantly agree to go in search of him. Maddie is sure that the way to find the girl and Ben's father is for the pair of them to join to. They had little idea of what they were letting themselves in for.I found the character of Ben very irritating at tim [...]

It really was a just one more chapter read, with the ease of being sucked in from the start.Ben and Maddie undertake to help carry on where Ben's dad couldn't. and soon find themselves in t [...]

If you find yourself as confused as I was at the start of this book - don't stop reading. It had great reviews but I thought I'd stumbled onto some YA christian fiction initially and nearly gave up.It soon turned into a normal but horrific story about a cult gone insane. Ben Whittle and his girlfriend Maddie infiltrate the Sons and Daughters of Salvation to try and find out what happened to Ben's father as he was investigating the cult to find a missing girl. The guy running the show, Father Ebb [...]
I originally read this book back on 1st January 2016 and loving it just as much this time round now published under Bloodhound Books. This is the first book in the Ben Whittle series by Mark Tilbury.Well I think this novel had just about everything. It made me read with just one eye open at times, laugh and it had a little romance blossoming too. When shy and insecure Ben receives a desperate phone call from his P.I. dad Geoff, saying he is in grave danger from a cult he is investigating, he kno [...]
Explicit Chilling Storytelling at Its Best!The Revelation Room begins in humble innocence before all hell breaks loose with the cast of characters penned by author Mark Tilbury in his debut novel.Tilbury is masterful as he develops his story characters through 331 pages of cascading psychological suspense. The novel is precision-paced as the twisted drama builds and unfolds thrill by thrill. As the characters reveal, in their own dodgy way, underlying motivations and rationalizations for their b [...]

THE REVELATION ROOM by Mark Tilbury is a gritty, nail-biting, thrill ride of a read!

The Revelation RoomI loved the blurb on this book and really looked forward to reading it, and wow, it didn't disappoint!Ben Whittle is on a mission to infiltrate a dangerous cult in an effort to find his missing father, who disappeared while looking for a missing girl. Ben is the main protagonist and he is less than perfect, it's refreshing to see a flawed main character but it's great to see him grow as the story progresses. He and Maddie, the daughter of the local vicar, make a great pair and [...]
