Ooh! This one sounds exciting! I must admit I'm intrigued by Finn and why someone would want to kill him (and frame it as a suicide) since he seems like such an innocent character. The twists and turns would have my heart pounding for sure! Thanks.

Sounds like a real page-turner! Using excessive profanity turns me away from books sometimes though. I can understand if it has a point, but accessive use disrupts the story. I may still give it a try though. Thank you for reviewing!

Great review! But the plot didn't really grab me, so I think I'll pass.
Thanks for your comment.

I'm not too good with suspense thrillers, so I'm passing on this, but it does remind me of a Stephen King story, weirdly. I think it was Storm of the Century. It's the tone that does it, not so much the content.
Thanks for your comment.

Wow, this book is very fascinating. I am already pitying Finn just from reading the review. Thanks for this. You've written the review so well. I will most certainly enjoy reading this book.
Thank you. I appreciate your kind comment.

This sounds like a good one. I am so old school and back in my day, language was kept to a minimum or at least it was used to a purpose. Now, it’s in all things all the time. I still haven’t gotten used to it and probably never will. I just read and try to ignore. Loved this review. I’m off to read some of its sample pages.
I agree with your comments about language, so I always make it a point to caution about profanity for like-minded readers.

I like the mystery, and the cat and mouse hunt in this read. Hardly surprising that it won you since it too did me. Thanks for this entertain piece!
