Suffering at the hands of a violent intruder, Joseph is forced to confront the unimaginable. His will to survive is tested in the starkest of circumstances, and he learns that every action has consequences, some of which he may not be able to stomach.

Waking up fully clothed is an unnerving recent addition to Allan’s regimented daily routine. Further derailed by his desperate search for female companionship, the boundary between habit and derangement becomes increasingly blurred.

Struggling estate agent Francis has his own share of problems. Dependent on letting out one particular property, his job isn’t made any easier by the unsettling behaviour of the occupants in the neighbouring house.

Trying to make sense of post-university life is Leila. As she struggles to maintain her ambition, while trying to find the one thing that will make her happy, events from the past are destined to have their say.

Beginning with an unseen, panic-inducing discovery at a London restaurant, Pigeon Street disturbingly interweaves the stories of its contributors as their lives touch each other in ways that will change everything.

Review 2017

Mark Fieldsend opening page certainly got my attention and imagination going which definitely made me want to read on.

The title sets the stage from where a lot of the book is set, starting with Joseph, the main character, jogging under the bridge with hundreds of pigeons roosting up above and him running through stagnant puddles smelling of ammonia! Pigeon Street.

Then the real tale begins when Joseph returns to his flat to find Angela ( his partner) not at home, thinking she is still out he strips off and heads to the bathroom, only to be stopped by a bludgeon to the head followed by a kick in the ribs! The beginning of a horrendous ordeal for Joseph. A tale that is very bleak in places, making me gasp but had to read to the end.

Classed as a thriller this book certainly lives up to its genre, with unimaginable chain of events. The four main characters Joseph, Allan, Francis and Leila are very well described and easy to Sum up a picture of them they also are all interestingly link up through the book.

A quote at the beginning of Pigeon Street “Think you know your neighbours? Think again” after finishing the book this quote seemed very apt, we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors!

The language throughout was superb, helping the reader to envisage the darkness that unfolded. The plot has a lot of different aspects to it making it a brilliant page turner, with a stunning ending that gave me lots to think about for a while after finishing the book.

Well done Mark Fieldsend, I’ll definitely recommend your book and would love to read more from this author.
