There’s a killer lurking in all of us. Sometimes you just don’t know it.Take Phil Mercer, for example, what dark secret from his past changes a decent man, and respected professional into a man with murder on his mind?Down to earth Northerner, Phil Mercer, begins to question why so-called university friends failed to help him establish a practice at London’s Criminal Bar.

Despite that and colleagues’ professional jealousy, he goes on to achieve success as a fearless defender of society’s less fortunate until his career is threatened by events triggered by something completely out of his control.

Figuring his life and career are about to change forever, Mercer strives to find a way to right wrongs by inventing a new parlour game called ‘Comfort Zone.’

At a dinner party surrounded by colleagues he insists they all play the game. He introduces it after dinner as a ‘storytelling game.’

He adds – “the easy choice is not an option at all. What terrifies you? What scares you shitless? Be brave. Be reckless. You are among friends. What can possibly go wrong? It’s just a parlour game, right?”

My fourth encounter with Bentley's work, probably my last but also the one I enjoyed most. Mental illness, depression, loss, grief, tragedy, solitude, military service, capture by an unlikely enemy, consequences, PTSD, murder and more. Best book ever? No, far from it, but I was interested and engaged throughout. Twisty, turny, graphic violence, a main character - Phil Mercer who was worthy of sympathy. 3 from 5 Read - (listened to) February, 2022 Published - 2020 Page count - 260 (4 hrs 28 mins) Source - Audiobooks Format - Audible

Comfort Zone: A Tale of Suspense, my eighth read from author Stephen Bentley. Very different than my last 3 Steve Regan Undercover Cop books. Hannibal Hill’s narration adds greatly to a good book's enjoyment. “I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review." The gifting of this book did not affect my opinion of it. I own 13 other books by this author and look forward to reading more from him. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

It took me some time to really get into the story, and I have to admit that I was heartbroken at the end. I understand that this is some kind of a memoir, but it lacked the engaging elements I expect from a suspense book. the narrator was annoying at times... I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
