I’ve never read anything from these two authors before, but I’m glad I gave this book a shot. Very interesting read. To give a brief synopsis, a couple was attacked and the husband was murdered. Neighbours and also the security camera showed the killer leaving the scene to be a guy living in the same apartment building. But here’s the catch, the man that the people witnessed as the murderer was found dead, after an apparent suicide, two weeks before the attack.
Right from the first few pages, the story drew me into its world. I love how the authors managed to quickly make the reader be somewhat emotionally attached to the couple who were attacked, right from the beginning. Also love all the twists and turns in the storyline. There were also a number of spooky parts that were very well written. I guess I shouldn’t say ‘parts’ but more like the situations and scenes that unfold in the story were derived from very simple and normal stuff that it made it very easy to imagine the horror happening in real life. The authors did a great job in describing each scene, making it really easy to picture the flow of the story as if its a movie playing in your mind. The descriptions were not overdone to the point that it became draggy, like that of Under The Dome by Stephen King.
Gotta say the ending was a little of a surprised, but I guess that’s what makes a good story. 😉
