Book Review: KEEP ME IN SIGHT
Keep Me in Sight Book Cover Keep Me in Sight
Rachel Blackledge

A night she can hardly remember. A night she will never forget.

It’s about Dan.

These three words jolt Brynn back to the big boozy night she spent with her boyfriend Dan. The same night his ex, Erin, showed up. Erin says something terrible happened that night. Dan says he never touched her. Trouble is, Erin has evidence to prove it.

Brynn can vouch for him though. She was there that night that they can hardly remember, but will never forget. While Brynn pieces together her fractured memories, lost that night at the bottom of a bottle, facing the horrifying possibility that maybe Dan isn’t completely innocent. Maybe he’s guilty as charged.

But as Brynn inches closer to the truth, she begins to wonder: Who is the predator? And who is the prey?

Gloria knows the answer. She’s a psychic who turned her back on her ability after she failed to prevent a terrible tragedy. As her painful past floods back to her, can she learn to trust her gift again before it’s too late? Or will her painful past hold her back from saving someone’s future . . . and quite possibly their life.

This addictive and suspenseful thriller explores the fault lines between broken memories and shattered trust, and will keep you up well past your bedtime.

REVIEW: As I read “Keep Me In Sight” it reminded me of old times. Friends hanging out together and just having a good time. When Erin enters the picture and ruins Dan’s deployment party things become interesting. You think what happened to them and how they broke up. Erin seemed nice, but she also had a creepy aura. Was she telling Brynn the truth about what happened between her and Dan or was it all a lie. I have yet to read the actual truth, but look forward to completing it. I love the what happened or who done what. It’s truly one book you won’t put down.

About Rachel:
Rachel is an American expat, living abroad since 2008. She lived in Sydney Australia for a number of years, Italy, Switzerland, and has sailed over 11,000 nautical miles, crossing the Indian Ocean three times and sinking only once. She hung up her foul weather gear after the birth of her son. And writes thrillers now instead.

She’s the proud granddaughter of two World War II fighter pilot war heros. Richard ‘Blackie’ Blackledge was a WWII B-17 heavy bomber pilot. Post war, he became a successful writer. And George Jensen flew the dreaded B-29 superfortress. They both lived on well into their 90s.

“I lost two special friends, and the world lost great men, but they’re both with me still, sending me pearls of wisdom from the great beyond, telling me over the roar of the engines to: ‘Pick up the pace or you’ll get your butt blown off!’

“Okay, maybe that’s not them. But it’s still good advice.”

Rachel lives in Singapore with her husband, baby boy, and rescue pup named Jessica Shadow Shady Lady Lauro.

Harry Potter Leicester Square Statue

The statue of Harry Potter has finally been revealed on Leicester Square’s Scenes in the Square Trail. The statue is of Daniel Radcliffe as the boy wizard in the scene where he first takes flight for quidditch. He’s been sculpted in bronze, just like his Leicester Square co-star statues. He occupies the north terrace of the very same square where the movie premiered back in 2001. Harry Potter content has also been added to the Square’s pre-exiting audio tour to coincide with the statue’s unveiling. 

Harry will be poised on his Nimbus 2000 until July 2023. Pictures are posted in our gallery.

From Magic to Real Life

New interview from El Sol de Irapuato it talks about Escape from Pretoria in a phone interview with Dan in London.

About Escape from Pretoria

“We are living in a time when it is important to tell the stories of people who have heroic qualities to be celebrated, of people with enormous courage, but who at the same time have great principles and sacrifice so much for their ideals. That’s always something important as an actor,” Radcliffe tells via telephone from London. 

Dan devoted three months for preparation to learn the South African accent and the escape plan. Here’s what Dan had to say about Tim Jenkin.

“We talked a lot about what it meant to grow up in South Africa and how the social awakening to apartheid was. He told me about the day-to-day protests, what it was like to get to prison and the step-by-step escape plan; that helped me get practical details of how and where he hid the tools to sand the wood or the technique to do it, among many other things. It was very rare to hear all these stories coming directly from him” ” he says. 

Here’s a new video of Dan talking about Escape from Pretoria.
