Stranded by Stuart James

4 Stars from me

I second guessed myself so many times while reading this book!

I have to say if I were to be caught on this bus of doom I’d hope for Ben and his family to come along… I’m damn sure in their position I would have just driven off at speed and never looked back!

Luckily they aren’t as selfish as me so our friendly neighbourhood psycho got to role play out all of his little ‘games’.

There are some fabulous, old style horror film, heart in your mouth, moments in this book – along with some that I think would likely have been funny if you were watching the events play out.

You’ll need your wits about you to read Stranded as much like the House Mate it is topsyturvy at times and left my poor little mind spinning as it tried to keep up. There are several mini stories that all pull together to create the main event.

As for the ending…


Blurb: A family trapped. A psychopath on the loose. Let the game begin…

What could be more innocent than going on holiday?

As a family drive along a quiet country lane on their way to the airport, they meet a stranger standing alone in the middle of the road.

Steering them along another path, he tells the driver, Ben, that a tree has fallen and there’s no way through.

But as they make their way along the diverted route, they come across a coach blocking the road.

Getting out of the car Ben goes to investigate and is horrified to find the passengers tied to their seats.

Then a discarded phone starts to ring…

If Ben calls the police, everyone on board will die.

Let the horrific game begin…
