Review

"... an outstanding read.... This story is layered with mystery, questions from every corner and no answers fully coming forth until the final conclusion.... What a ride.... This is one you will not be able to put down and one you will remember for a long time to come. Very highly recommended." (Midwest Book Review)

My two favorite authors are Koontz & King, and until very recently, they were the only authors on my Kindle (nevermind that I just got my Kindle for Christmas!). So, when Amazon suggested that I read a Michaelbrent Collings book, I was pretty skeptical, but decided to download it anyway. I'm glad I did, because I loved The Meridians and could not put it down! The Meridians is non-stop suspense from beginning to end, with wonderful character development & an outstanding plot. The plot centers around the connection between the murder of a LAPD detective's family, a John Doe, and an autistic boy. It would be extremely difficult to write more about the book without giving away too many details, so just buy it now and read it for yourself!

Okay, so I should mention up front that I've met the author and that I think he's a pretty cool guy. We don't hang together and he doesn't know where I live, but we do email.

Which was helpful when I started reading and immediately spotted sylistic similarities to another, much more famous author: I got to ask him about it. Michaelbrent tells me that I'm not the first to compare him to Dean Koontz. I'm sure I won't be the last.

Both excel at presenting lovable, vulnerable characters with steel cores wrapped in battered souls. Both enjoy torturing these characters until you want to throw yourself in front of them to prevent further abuse. Both keep you guessing--and keep the tension and losses coming--until the last page. Both present their horror stories with a wit and humor that makes you laugh while you scream.

In THE MERIDIANS, Michaelbrent tells a sweet story of a very special autistic child surrounded by love and devotion. Also that of an equally important ex-cop who loses his will and his way and must rediscover both. He drops them into the boiling oil of a horror story, pits them against a seemingly invicible professional killer who has had decades to hate them, and sprinkles the whole with a world-view so mind-boggling it will alter the way you look at autistics forever.

Well done, Michaelbrent.

The Meridians wastes no time dropping you in the middle of the action. The book opens with a hitman, a double murder, and an unexplained corpse. The novel was filled with so much page-turning suspense that I worried the author might not be able to maintain the hurtling pace he started with and bring it to a satisfying conclusion. As I neared the end of the book I wondered how in the world the story could be wrapped up in the pages I had left. Even though I am an avid reader, the intricate twists in this novel were unpredictable enough to keep me guessing until the mind-boggling conclusion. The awesome thing about this book is that after you finish it and put it down, you're still trying to wrap your mind around it. I found myself thinking back through the whole thing (kind of like I did at the end of the movie The Sixth Sense) trying to see if everything actually fits together--and it does.

The emotional highs and lows in this book are positioned perfectly to create a wholly satisfying experience by the end. The author does a masterful job at creating and maintaining tension.

I cared very much about each of the main characters--both in how I rooted for the protagonist(s) and in how I loathed the villain. When I like the characters well enough in a story, the plot doesn't need to be overly imaginative to carry my interest. In the case of the Meridians, however, both characters and plot were equally fascinating, creating a truly exceptional read.

Bravo.

Format: Paperback
Scott Cowley is a Detective and a good one at that. He has a wife and a beautiful daughter that he loves dearly. No one would have ever believed what happened the day they were both shot down, taken away from Scott forever. Scott, himself, badly wounded survived and his life changed forever. Leaving detective work behind him, Scott moves to a new town, yet he is haunted by Mr. Gray, the man who killed his wife and daughter and who is now after him. Who is this mysterious man and why is he bent on destroying? Supernatural things are happening to Scott,things he can't explain to anyone until he helps a young window and her autistic son, both who are also being hunted by Mr. Gray. Joining forces they begin the battle for their very existence.

Wow! What an outstanding read this is. I have to tell you I was glued to this book until I finished it. The characters were so well defined, their emotions right out there, in your face, that it was impossible not to become involved with their lives. It was great the way the author brought a child into play and centered the storyline around him, especially his autistic ways that had to be figured out in order to survive. I so liked how Mr. Collings gives honor to the little boy and showed how truly special he was.

This story is layered with mystery, questions from every corner and no answers fully coming forth until the final conclusion. Just what is the secret of The Meridians? What a ride. Let me say it certainly took a great writer to write this story. This is one you will not be able to put down and one you will remember for a long time to come. Very highly recommended.
