Hope to see more from this author!

The mystery in this book does not reveal itself (at least it didn't to me) until very close to the end. It also doesn't use what I would consider unfair literary license to remain a mystery and I appreciated that. There is an interesting interplay between paranormal activity and plain old common sense that resolves [I thought] reasonably believably in the end.
The main characters have some complexity to them; some dimension. While reading the story I was not only kept interested in the unfolding of the mystery, but in the development of the characters.
The story is complete, in and of itself, but lends itself to further books in a series.
The author's word pictures are vivid and enjoyable. I felt like I was there, which was both gratifying and - at times - tension-producing.
The author creates a gripping, imaginative thriller that kept me interested all the way through; and did so without having to resort to gratuitous sex or endless descriptions of gore. There is definitely violence, but it's well-depicted: enough to set the scene, but not more than necessary to create the tension necessary to the plot.
I do hope to see more development of these characters and their very complex relationships in further books by this same author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review.
