I bought this book at a thrift store because the synopsis on the back cover hooked me The author is a good storyteller and this murder mystery was well paced and fairly compelling I found one element of the plot pretty far out there and unbelievable, but most of the book was enjoyable. I thought the book had high points and low points As far as the story was concerned, it was a little slow in starting I was about halfway through the book before I really got to the point where I wanted to read it Once it got to that point, however, I couldn t put it down The tension built very well and though I had predicted the ending at the beginning of the book, I began to question my original thoughts I was disappointed in the ending though because it happened so suddenly Rapid events are difficult to convey in writing and though I understand the difficulty, I feel that the author didn t have an ending that matched the level of her suspense building.In regards to the writing style, this book was not my favorite I found the writing to be very cliche and dry most of the time Even in the last quarter of the book, when I actually began wanting to read it, I still found myself struggling with the style of this author Style, however, is unique and peoples preferences are different, so don t let that aspect of the book turn you off.One final note, the Christian message in this book, though good, was very in your face I personally am not a fan of books that have such an overt Christian message, though I myself am a Christian, because it detracts from the story You re reading along and all of a sudden you re in the middle of a sermon I love good Christian fiction and I appreciate that the author is using her talents to glorify God, but I wish she had toned it down a little.All in all, this was a pretty good book and I would recommend it to people who are looking for a quick, interesting read. This is one of the strangest and most bizarre novels of horror and suspense that I ve ever read Elayna Evans and a lifelong friend with the mind of an eight year old boy are thrown into terrifying danger amidst a most implausible plot But the detailed atmospheric descriptions keep one reading until the end. This is the book to read if you need a good example of telling instead of showing Pretty much the entire book is telling This is the book I use to show people What Not To Do I hope that s not too insulting. this is a religious mystery,my first and last i am not religious but i did appreciate the way this author wound her religious beliefs into a mystery and a story of a 55 yr old retarded man as the hero it was an interesting read. This book is not totally without merit However, considering the scarcity of time these days, the author spouts too many words stating the same thing over and over and over again Very tiresome. This is a very good book It is clean and comfortable to read, yet suspenseful to the very end.
