The subtitle of this book, “A Thomas Family …”, is a great idea as starting point. Choosing a serial killer as the first book in the series promises the possibility for mystery lovers. However, I think the road the author took in this book ran into detours and hit several chuck holes as it moved forward on its journey to “Wally World.”
The detour was evident when the detective instantly got a rise when met the potential victim, a beauty shop who had a litany of losing relationships. Couple this with the fact the detective lost his wife two years before. This detour begs the question “was this detour needed to solve the potentially exciting road to the solution of the serial killer mystery?”
Then there was the chuck holes encountered along the way. The first is the heavy drinking, foul mouth detective that looked like the Adonis from some dime store romance novel. I would prefer a more realistic normal hard working detective.
Another chuck hole was the introduction of a dime store romantic novel into the midst of this mystery. Then finishing the book with “Moaning, Groaning, and Sweaty Bodies Session” after the serial killer was identified and killed. This ending was not necessary and the ending of the romance could have been handled in a more realistic and readable manner.
Several of the characters were weakly developed or modeled after B-Movie characters; stereotypes left to the reader to fill in the holes.
I enjoyed the possibilities that the author presented to me and found I could turn off most of the problems I found except for the ending; that spoiled the book for me. Thus I am giving this book a three star review because hidden somewhere in here there are great possibilities for a good mystery novel which got lost somewhere along the way.
Meagan McInnis is a hairdresser who lives alone with her dog. She has a bad track record with men, seeming to attract nothing but louses. Then, she begins to get strange phone calls. When she answers, she’s met with silence until a bloody present is left in her backyard, and the caller is no longer silent. Her best friend’s severed head is left for her, and she gets a strange call asking if she likes her ‘present.’
Thomas knows that somehow Meagan is the key to catching the killer, but how is he to do it before she becomes the next victim?
Sandman by Morgan Hannah MacDonald is a chilling thriller that follows Thomas in his desperate mission to nab The Sandman before he leaves even more bodies buried in shallow sandy graves. The tension begins with the first page of this well-crafted story, and doesn’t let up until the explosive ending. This author puts you, the reader, in the middle of the action and takes you on one hell of a scary ride. Don’t even think about reading this book if you don’t have time to finish it in one sitting. Oh, and you might want to make sure that if you’re home alone when you read it, all your doors and windows are locked.
For all those who enjoy mystery, thrillers and serial killers then this book is for you. You will not be disappointed. The only thing I felt the wasn't the perfect ending was the graphic sexual seen in the last chapter. But I suppose that's one of the things many readers enjoy today-I think the exact same point could have been made without the graphic stuff and more tenderness mainly because Meagan has been through so much I believe a more tender moment of holding her in his arms where she felt safe and woke up in the morning knowing she had a wonderful man and protector and let the reader use their imagination on everything else.
