I’m always a fan of a good mystery crime novel. And this one seems to be just that. I am excited to find out who killed her. A great tension-filled read.

From a sampling, this seems like an interesting crime/thriller following three different individuals that are placed in a mystery possibly because happenstance and include drug and domestic issues. It might be worth a second look. Well done.

Post by Che Sparrowbosa »

Although the review itself didn't reach as far as the flat tire so far the lives of everyone involved in this book seems foreshadowing and intense. I personally however did not like Anna at all for the way she acted was naive and stupid and of little worth. You could just tell she was the cliche girl going to make a bad decision in this book only to discover herself and try something new or some BS like that. I too didn't fancy the writing style there were too many unnecessary switches at least give us some bulk before switching. Great start however it pulled me in but the switching so quickly was a turn off. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the different P.O.Vs but not with so little information or content each time. Much Love for the idea however I'm curious to know what happens.

This book sounds like an absolute whirlwind. Packed with action, suspense, and romance, this book seems to have it all. Anna, John, and Travis sound like a very interesting group of characters that pack a punch. The fact that the author also adds in lots of other details, from Native American legends to the Viet Cong, makes this book sound like a real treat. I am definitely looking forward to reading it. Thank you for such a wonderful review!

The way you describe it, I think this book has a potential for a film. It looks like it's really intriguing to read with all the bell pants, masculines and oldsmobile 44! I'm gonna find out that unexpected twist in the last part, too. Thanks for the review! :techie-studyingbrown:

This sounds like a great combination of romance and murder. Apparently there is a lot going on in this book and the characters are interesting. The plot sounds diverse and action packed. Definitely worth a try.

Thanks for the review! While the violence and mention of drugs do not seem very appealing to me, the mystery itself reminds me of the many crime shows that I watch. Congrats to the author on BOTD! :)

I'm in a dire need of a good thriller novel. I think this book is the answer to that. The title alone is enough to piquet my interest.

Thank you for sharing your review with us. I am not a fan of books involving drug cartels, so I am glad you pointed that out for me.
