This is a mystery that reads more like a suspense book. It is fast paced with very little over indulgence by the writer. The scenes move quickly and most are quite exciting, making it a hard book to put down. He kind of writes like Richard Laymon with alot of dialogue and just enough description to let you picture each scene. There is no doubt I like this guy's style, but the thing that really stands out about this book are the characters. Within the first 30 pages or so you are already firmly attached to the main characters, two twelve year old boys who both have very unique personalities.
This is the only book of his I could find, and his website says its his first novel. Well, if this is first, I can't wait to read more! Not sure who the author most resembles, but when I read it I thought of Laymon, Stephen King's novella called The Body (better known as the movie Stand By Me), and Robert McCammon's Boys Life. Seek says on his website that King and McCammon are two of his biggest influences, so that's probably not surprising. Funny thing is I made the comparison before I ever visited his website.
Anyway, I definitely recommend this book to any fan of King, Laymon or McCammon. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I reserve that rating for only the very best like King's The Stand and McCammon's Swan Song.
One weekend in May, shortly before summer, the boys take a ride on their bikes to the Elk River. It seems the winter runoff that spring was severe, causing widespread flooding and tremendous damage and now that the flood waters have finally receded, our boys are off to explore the damage.
The flood caused extreme erosion of the river bank and our explorers discovered a partially exposed crate in the side of the bank. Unfortunately it was lodged rather high but our tenacious duo finally managed, after concerted efforts to pull a portion of the crate loose as they fell. What they discovered in the portion that came out with their fall both intrigued and revolted Nick and Trevor. There were some old hippie style clothes, some jewelry and bones and a SKULL. Human bones and skull. What have they found?
In addition to skeleton and clothes, they found a bracelet, which Trevor wanted to give to Wendy Buckwalter, a girl in his class that Trevor has a crush on and an old hippie headband. Since Trevor wants the bracelet, he insists that Nick keep the headband and places it upon Nick's head and when he does Nick suddenly feels very strange, "like he is being propelled through a vacuum of air at the speed of light", all of a sudden Nick finds himself in an automobile in the presence of a dark haired girl who trying to beat him off(no not that way). She finally breaks free and make a run for it and Nick chases after her, catches her and strikes her with his flashlight.Read more ›
While I might say this book is for youth since the children are only about eleven - twelve years old, there are situations and talk which would compel me to place this on my young adult shelf. I'm not suggesting it doesn't happen but am astonished to think that mere children think and talk about adult subjects at a progressively younger age.
