Dramatically beginning with the funeral of Sam’s wife, the story is fast paced and has many twists and turns. The insinuation that FBI agent Cole may have more to do with the murders adds more mystery to the storyline.
The story is wound cleverly as the killer leaves a trail a mile long and is yet difficult to corner. He is brazen enough to walk right into police quarters without the authorities nabbing him.
I liked the story as it was a very quick read. It is well written and provides the suspense that a crime thriller must do.
I would give it 4 stars simply because of a personal opinion that murder mysteries go down better if you are kept guessing about the killer’s identity till the very end.
Ilive in a small town (population495) in Wisconsin. From my deck I can see the Mississippi River on one side and the bluffs, where eagles live and nest on the other side. I live with my husband Dave and dog Sammy. My two children are grown and I have two grandchildren. I love to watch people and that has helped me with my writing. I often use people I watch as characters in my books and I always try to give my characters some of my own values and habits.
I love to create characters and put them in a troubling situation then sit back and let them do all the work. My characters surprise even me at times. At some point in the book they take on a life of their own and the twists and turns they create becomes the story. Of all the stories I could write I found I like mystery/thrillers the best. I like to keep my readers guessing until the very end of the book.
