A Perfectly Balanced Murder Mystery,
This review is from: The Passerby (Hardcover)
Thomas Ray Crowel's The Passerby is an exciting story about a small-town murder of a young girl from twenty years ago. Just reading the jacket description was all I needed to get hooked. I simply couldn't put this book down. It was exciting and fast-paced, but not overwhelming. Crowel introduced new characters and revealed facts at just the right times, making it easy to follow the murder investigation. This is a book that is really easy to read, but still has all the elements of a great murder mystery and something much deeper. Set in a small Indiana town and based on a true story, The Passerby reveals more about human nature than meets the eye. It reveals the sometimes shocking dynamics of small-town life and in general, society as a whole. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something entertaining, easy to read, and that will keep them on the edge of their seat.
