I am beyond ecstatic to be hosting a stop on the blog tour for Enter the Dark by Chris Thomas today! My review follows that all-important book information but I can already tell you know, you should totally buy this book and enjoy the ride!
Author : Chris Thomas
Title : Enter the Dark
Pages : 315
Publisher : Bloodhound Books
Publication date : June 26, 2017
An anonymous website, a few clicks, and Joe Henderson’s life is changed forever.
‘The Red Room’ is the only place where the failings of a weak justice system are righted and where the line between good and evil becomes blurred. When the lights go up, viewers bid, criminals are punished, and the Brotherhood of the Righteous broadcasts a show like no other.
The room has remained hidden until now, when a video arrives in the inbox of the Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit. But outclassed, outplayed, and torn apart by corruption, is there anything Detective Pete Harris and his team can do except watch?
Their only lead may be the room’s latest bidder, Joe Henderson. Because when Joe found the Red Room, it found him too, and now the Brotherhood are watching through the wires, willing to do wrong for a righteous cause.
As they pull Joe deeper into the dark web, will he find any mercy or a way out? And could he be the Red Room’s next volunteer?
Bloody hell! Wait, let me do that again. BLOODY HELL!!!!!!
This book is like nothing I’ve ever read before and it’s absolutely mind-blowingly brilliant! It is genius, unique, highly original and incredibly captivating! I can’t find the words to describe the awesomeness here, people, but I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Enter the Dark as soon as you possibly can!
When Joe is introduced to a whole different side of the internet by his friend, Billy, he has no idea what he’s getting himself in for. For the web is dark and full of terrors. Never thought I’d be able to use an almost exact quote from Game of Thrones in a book review. Thank you Melisandre!
In the dark corners of the dark web lurks the Brotherhood of the Righteous who have turned punishing criminals, who they feel have gotten off too lightly, into a freaky quiz show. I should probably warn you that this is not for the faint-hearted reader. This Brotherhood is the cruelest of the cruel and some scenes are quite disturbing and stomach-churning. Yet, it’s also immensely thought-provoking as you ponder who the bad guys really are. In case you wondered, I loved every second of this super intense ride!
There are multiple threads, one of which I failed to see the significance of until the reveal near the end, which was fabulously done! This is a brilliantly executed plot which had me glued to the pages throughout. Utterly gripping, compelling and absorbing. I don’t really know how Chris Thomas will be able to beat this one (no pressure!) but I’ll be first in line to find out!
Many thanks, as always, to Sarah Hardy and Bloodhound Books for having me on the tour!

Chris Thomas was born near London in 1978 before moving to Buckinghamshire a few months later. He attended the University of Bristol, graduating with a degree in psychology in 1999. It was here that he developed his interest in criminal psychology and serial killers.
After a brief stint working at an investment bank in London, he left the City to work for his wife’s family business, a position he still holds.
Chris is an avid film fan, especially horror, thrillers and dark comedy- something that he tries to blend in his writing. After attending a creative writing course, he gained the confidence to pursue his dream of writing a novel. He self-published his debut novel The Red Room in February 2017 before joining the Bloodhound Books stable and re-releasing the book as Enter The Dark.
Further works are already in the planning, including a sequel to Enter The Dark, which is intended to be even more dark and disturbing!
In his spare time, Chris enjoys karate (holding a black belt) and spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
