This story is about a twisted individual's rampage in a small Texas town and some old school "Texas Lawmen" hunting him down. At times, I found myself cringing as I got an insight into this muderer's mind but was not about to put the book down. It is a page-turner for sure as you hope that the good guys will win. In addition, as a native Texan, I enjoyed the references to the colleges, towns, and landscapes that I love about Texas.

Interesting character introductions. Takes off fast and just keeps on going with Suspense hanging questions and end of most chapters. Makes you have to keep reading the next chapter whether you have time or not! A must read for anyone who enjoys SUSPENSE. You think you know what is going to happen; but be ready for the next turn!

There is an old Texas saying " he just needed killing," and this applies to the Colonel's son in spades.
I'm not sure you can "enjoy" a story like this, but it certainly held my interest as the good guys struggle to catch someone who lurches from rage to rage, kill to kill. The story makes you want them to get him, and I don't mean to read him his rights...GET HIM!!! I locked the doors and stayed up way too late on this page-turner.

This book has well defined characters that you either really pull for or really really don't like. It gets your attention early and , if like me ,will keep you up all night reading. If you like suspense until the very end and like to read a book in one sitting, buy it. You'll like it.

Ernest Jennings writes a powerful novel about the relationship between a father and son gone awry. The Colonel's Son is a suspenseful and interesting dark thriller. I was enthralled.

This may be the fastest paced author I have ever enjoyed! I read it in two settings and just couldn't put it down. Ernest Jennings is what James Patterson used to be and more!

I'm not an avid reader but this one kept me reading straight through. From the beginning, there is no suspense who the killer is but you quickly get wrapped up in his warped thinking as well as the personalities of the ones trying to stop him. Warm relationships of the good guys make you feel like you know the characters. You will be glad you read it.
