This book had me laughing, crying, and begging for more. The pure evil in the villain was superbly done, and made me hate him for the things he did. The technical descriptions felt too long though. I finally started to skim over them just to get past them, since I couldn’t really visualize totally what was being described. I felt like the story was well written but long-winded. Even so, I didn’t want it to end and I hope the author continues the story.
Dan Morris comes back to his Florida home to bury his beloved Aunt and Uncle who were murdered during what appeared to be a robbery gone bad. But nothing seemed to be missing from the home. Money was in plain view and nothing had been taken from the family safe. Not all was what it appeared and Dan was determined to discover what happened to his family. He follows the clues to discover what his family has been hiding, even from him, all these years.
What could have been an amazing thriller turned out to be less than spectacular. The characters were flat and a bit boring. It took so long to build up and reveal what the secret was, that by the time it happened, I didn't care. I just wanted it to be over. The suspense scenes were anything but and the conclusion was a little too "happily ever after" for my tastes.
The authors excessive use of the exclamation point was somewhat laughable as well as the use of profanity where it really didn't belong. There were also a few typographical errors that a good editor should be able to take care of and didn't really detract too much from what story there was.
I would give this two stars out of five. The plot was solid and it was a good attempt at a thrilling suspense novel. But it fell just a little flat and took too long to get to the climax. Instead of flowing from logical point to point, it jumped around all over the place and ended up being confusing instead.
I like a book that keeps my interest from the get go and this book has done that. I did get a little lost when the book would jump back in time with no warning. That is the only thing that threw me, but it did not take long for me to catch back up.
I give this book 5 stars because even though it is not my usual genre, I would happily read it again and recommend it to all of my friends. If I had the paperback of this book, I do not know if I would have been able to resist reading the end of the story. I wanted to know how it turned out that bad. There was a twist that I did not see coming, but it worked out very well.
