Joel Baxter is infamous for solving weird and bizarre cases that others avoid. So, when he receives an email from a teenage boy Tim saying his town is cursed, he cannot turn it down.
“…I will more than likely be dead when you read this. There is nothing I can do about it. It’s the curse, and we’ve hit The Crazy Season.” Every 20 years, there are a handful of unexplained teenage deaths and it’s started again.
With the help of his straight-talking friend Melody, they set out to get to the bottom of the alleged curse. Everybody in Black Rock has secrets and nobody wants to speak.
The closer they get to truth the more Joel and Melody realise that their involvement is far from coincidental.
This book was brilliant and I love that cover!!
I loved the author’s writing style and the pace for the book was spot on.
This was a book that had me hooked right from the start and I thoroughly enjoyed it right to that great ending!! It was a completely additive read and I loved the suspense that was built up as the book progressed, a I do love a book that keeps me guessing and this was definitely one of them!
It is 5 stars from me for this one, well written, some great characterisation and a gripping read overall too – what is not to love! Very highly recommended and another cracker from Jim Ody!!
The book is realised tomorrow but you can pre order your copy today on the links below:
