A Murder Mystery That Keeps You Guessing to the End
Dec 9, 2009
I really enjoyed the author's style in this mystery/thriller because he presents you with a mystery where the main character (Adam Chase) is in the dark most of the time like the reader and when things are finally figured out, the author did not cop out with the usually tricks that many other writers seem to pull. Adam gets a call to return to his hometown from a friend. When he reluctantly goes there he is treated rather poorly because the townfolk feel he was unjustly acquited of a murder five years prior.
As the plot moves along you are never sure if Adam may have done what he is accused of and each of the characters in the book are shrouded in mystery. Then there is Adam's old girlfriend Robin who is also a cop and the one person that believed in his innocence (but you are never sure if this was true).
