About the author

Echo is a paranormal thriller written by Richard Glenn, about two private investigators, who will go to any length to protect a girl they just met, from something they cannot possibly understand.

Richard has been writing in one form or another since he was a child, but Echo is the first story he has self-published and will be the first of a four part series.

With a busy personal and work life, he wrote the book with a biro pen on a notepad before copying it on his phone. Almost exclusively while travelling to work on the bus or during his lunch break, proving to himself that you can always find time to make a dream a reality.

Born in Birmingham, and having moved around England, Richard finally settled in Leeds, West Yorkshire, where he lives with his family and no pets, whatsoever.

My Thoughts:

Echo is the kind of book you’ll need to put down and digest after each story arc. It’s a fast paced, suspenseful story with believable, well developed characters. My favourites being Allister and Chloe. 💗

Chloe believes she is being stalked and hires private investigators Jackson and Allister to help her. Pushing both characters out of their comfort zone and thrusting them into a world they couldn’t possibly understand; because Chloe’s right. She does have a stalker, but whomever, (or should that be whatever), is stalking her is something none of them could have prepared for.

Without giving too much away, I particularly enjoyed seeing how the characters (especially Chloe and Allister) developed throughout the story. The book took a path I wasn’t expecting, which was good to see, but there are a couple of loose ends that I’m hoping are covered in book two.

The story itself is imaginative and very well written; with some dark themes (like Jackson’s drinking) amongst the paranormal aspects.

It’s one of those stories that keeps you on your toes; it’s exciting and left me desperately wondering what will happen next after finishing each chapter. Or in some cases paragraph!

I’m looking forward to seeing where Richard brings these characters in the second book, especially after that epilogue! …and the twist. I wasn’t expecting either of those.


I’d like to thank Richard again for sending me his E-book to read.

What are your favourite book genres? Would Echo be something you’d enjoy reading?

    Paranormal isn’t normally a genre I’d go for but this one does sound intriguing. And it’s the first of a series of four too, so the arcs for the characters and plots are going to be a great journey. Great review, Kim, no spoilers, but enough details to whet the appetite! Lisa x

      Thanks Lisa. 🙂 It’s not usually a genre I’d go for either but I love crime novels so the mix of crime with the paranormal was very interesting for me. x
