I’m pleased to welcome you this evening to my stop on the blog tour for wonderful thriller The Man on Hackpen Hill by J.S. Monroe. Thank you to Head of Zeus for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
About the book:
It isn’t unusual for crop circles to appear overnight on Hackpen Hill. In this part of Wiltshire, where golden wheat fields stretch for miles, the locals have got used to discovering strange mathematical patterns stamped into the earth.
But this time, it’s different. Not only because this particular design of dramatic spiralling hexagons has never been seen before. But because of the dead body positioned precisely in the centre of the circle. DI Silas Hart, of Swindon Police, is at a loss.
Only Jim, a scientist at secretive government laboratory Porton Down, knows the chilling truth about the man on Hackpen Hill. And he wants Bella, a trainee journalist on her first ever story, to tell the world. But Silas has other ideas – and a boss intent on a cover up.
As Bella and Jim race against time, dark forces conspire against them, leading them to confront the reality of their own past and a world in which nothing is as it seems.
An original, intelligent and twisty thriller set in rural Wiltshire. Can DI Silas Hart uncover the chilling truth before it’s too late?

The Man on Hackpen Hill by JS Monroe is a superb thriller that is the second in the DI Silas Hart series of books. A complex and highly original crime thriller set in rural Wiltshire, it sees DI Silas Hart heading up the investigation into a dead body found positioned precisely in the middle of a crop circle that has suddenly appeared overnight on Hackpen Hill.
The Man on Hackpen Hill is a dark and cleverly plotted thriller that is full of twists, turns, intrigue and suspense. With fascinating characters, a murder mystery and strange crop circles that appear overnight, it is a brilliantly written story that I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end.
In a race against time, can DI Silas Hart and his team uncover the chilling truth before it’s too late?
I loved every word of this book, from the theories surrounding the mysterious crop circles to the tense and gripping murder investigation. I don’t want to say too much more as this is a story that needs to be experienced for yourself, so all I will say is that The Man on Hackpen Hill is a fantastic thriller that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
