Wow. I’ve read some dark books but this....this is dark. Dark in the way, you have to keep stopping and say “whoa” and then start up again. And the ending was fantastic, loved it. Well done. Never read this writer before, but I think I’m going to read more of his works. Fantastic.

Thanks NetGalley for the advance review.

This is the first novel I have read by Mark Tilbury, but it won't be the last! I was taken in right from the beginning as he weaves the story around 4 main characters. They come to life as he introduces each of the 4 men involved in the plot. He addresses some important issues that young people, all people, can face in the world, including bullying, loyalty and suicide. I did not guess the ending, which is not often the case with thrillers. I think this would make a terrific movie. I highly recommend picking this up for a great read!

An intense, dark book about memories that still hang around to haunt them. Four boys are about to graduate high school but it's not all fun and planning for their future. Find out what happens when they meet up again now that they're adults.

Thankyou to NetGalley, Bloodhound Books and the author, Mark Tilbury, for the opportunity to read an advanced readers copy of You Belong To Me in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.
I jumped at the chance to read the latest offering from this author. I have read previous novels written by this author and enjoyed them. This offering was no different.
I thought the storyline was well written and thoroughly suspenseful with plenty of twists to keep you guessing.
The characters were engaging and realistic. I certainly cannot wait for more from this author.

You Belong to Me involves four childhood friends - Danny, Josh, Rob and Kieran - who reunite to prevent history from repeating. The past has damaged them all and their journey will not be easy.

Mark Tilbury created a dark, brutal story here, treading far closer to horror than psychological suspense which may be why I struggled to finish this. I prefer thrillers to horror a million times over.

This being said, he does paint very clear, colorful visuals with his very descriptive details. I think he will be popular with many, just not me.

I would recommend to horror lovers.

Another fantastic offering from Mark Tilbury although I would say this is definitely less dark and brutal than some of his others. That aside, one of this author's talents is the creation of totally loathsome and deviant characters, and another is his ability to totally mess with your head. Both of these are here in bucketloads! Fifteen year old Ellie Hutton disappeared on the way home from school ten years ago and was never found. Now another girl has gone missing. Danny Sheppard gets a message to each of three of his former school friends, none of whom have seen each other since leaving school - "it's happened again". Quite a portion of the book is given over to the four friends reliving what happened to them in the past at the hands of Danny's evil older brother Callum and the rest of it tells the present day story. These young men are all severely mentally damaged by past events, and it is clear that they have all had problems in either seeking or finding help. I think this difficult aspect was very well portrayed by the author. Now meeting up again it's clear that something or someone will crack soon but can they put the past right in time? The pace and dark intensity keeps up right to the end of the book with an ending that will surprise a lot of readers. Superb!!

I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me abit of Stephen King's Stand By Me for some reason.
Loved the twist at the end.

I love reading books by this author, each time he brings something new to the table. A psychological thriller with more than a touch of horror this is just up street. This is a very dark read so be warned!!!!!
I devoured this book. Four young boys now adults unite with memories of what they did. It has haunted them ever since. The details of what they did are shocking and as for the ending WHAM!!!!!
This is a fantastic and a must read for readers of these genres. More please NOW !!!!!. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and an easy five stars.

Interesting and suspenseful tale with plenty of "aha!" moments, even for those like me who often figure out the plot before it's intended. The protagonists easily instilled empathy, while the dastardly were sufficiently cringe-worthy. This is a great book for enthusiasts of late-night chills, and is definitely recommended!

This story frightened, horrified and thoroughly captivated me. I couldn’t put it down. This tale takes you down some truly twisted paths that followed me long after the last page. I had to keep a Google window open to translate some of the British slang I was unfamiliar with. I’d not read this author before and I’ll admit it will take some girding of the loins before I read anything like this again. If psychological thrillers are your thing you will enjoy this book.
