Ready for the Rollecoaster of the Year? Twisted by Steve Cavanagh @SSCav @orionbooks @AMHeathLtd

Some books just leave you staring at the Kindle in total silence for five minutes, unable to process that the novel is finished and that you’ve just experienced a hell of a story…

Note: This review is one of the shortest I’ve ever written. The words are still stuck in my head, and my head has been Twisted…

twistedTitle: Twisted
Author: Steve Cavanagh
Publisher: Orion
Date of publication: 24st January 2019
Format: uncorrected e-copy
Number of pages: 352


1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.

After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…




  1. Steve Cavanagh’s mind is criminally brilliant.
  2. Never has a title been so spot-on.
  3. If you haven’t added this book to your list, I’m coming for you.

Where do I start?

Steve Cavanagh’s name is everywhere. I was lucky to see him during Bloody Scotland but my copy of Thirteen is still waiting for my eyes to dissect it. Still, I had a feeling the guy would push all my favourite thriller buttons.

He did more that this!

Insanely good, Twisted is a standalone that reminded me of a carousel. You start spinning slowly, and when you think you’re getting used to the landscape around you, you get punched by the bear you’re supposed to be grabbing. Gobsmacked by twists thrown at you at each turn, you don’t realise just how fast things are going and before you know it, you’re short of breath and completely addicted!

I am giving NOTHING away about the storyline. But let me tell you that it is sickly entertaining, stunningly penned, and brought to life by a perfect cast of protagonists.

Twisted is one of those novels that make you re-read a sentence because your brain can’t process the bombs the author has hidden throughout. You think you know where you are going but you end up lost in the woods. Oh and what woods… Killer woods with prey and hunters.

Are you up to the game to find out who’s who?

  1. I AM so looking forward to it!! I have it to read and should be starting soon. I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t read any of his other books yet, but I have a feeling that will change in the near future.


  2. Ooh this looks so good! I also like how you’ve reflected the “three facts” from the blurb into your review, both original and true to the style! I’ll definitely be adding this to my TBR list.


  3. You don’t need to come for me, I’m totally up for the game. ( though I’d welcome you coming 😊)
    I love the layout of your review, how you added the three things. Clever writing Meggy.
    I have started the first Kay Book, but Twisted will be my next read.
