My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The cover of this book is truly intriguing if you get into freaky and scary like I do. The cover itself drew me in and made me want to read it, and then next was the title. So already this book has two things going for it.
So here I am ready to read, when I learn that Rhett Shaw is an author who has hit a dry spell, because life has managed to get in the way of his writing, and maybe even the desire. This happens to a lot of writers, even people who don’t write, life just drags us down, and leaves us empty inside. So, personally, I can already relate.
Rhett has decided now that maybe the noises of Brooklyn, along with the fact that being recently widowed, he needed a change in scenery. His decision, is to move to the countryside in Vermont. On top of that, he chose a nice run-down house, that needed a little work, which could give him something to do on the side, and it was secluded.
After a bit, Rhett starts to notice little things, like the fact that things aren’t where he leaves them. At first like most of us, this could be the ‘I forgot where I put it.’ But then he starts keeping track of things, and he becomes certain they are being moved around. Not to mention, appliances are being left on, and noises start rattling through the walls. Maybe he’s just losing it, or is he?
Sometimes, Rhett doesn’t feel alone. But have no fear, inspiration hits, and what do you know, the desire to write is back. But what’s even more odd, is it seems the book is writing itself.
Everything he writes about, is happening in the quiet little community in which he has moved into, in this little town of Vermont. The only thing Rhett can’t be certain of, is he writing about the crimes before they happen; or after. What is going on in his mind?
This book will baffle and elude you until the very end. You will not be certain if you know what is happening, or if you suspect it. Before you think you have it figured it out, wait. You could be mistaken. And not to worry, I am not going to fill in the blanks for you, other than to tell you this is a five-star read that you need to get, because it will keep you on the edge of your seat, ready to scream! What are you waiting for?
