Terror Flower is a book that takes place in the sleepy town of River Sunday. When Captain bob is found dead everyone assumes it's an accident except his grandson Smote who soon pulls Trench the local custom car builder. when clues start adding up and an explosion takes place we are plunged into a murder mystery with the race against time and the only solid lead is "Black eye Susan".

I really enjoyed this book not having heard of this author and being new to his writing I was a little nervous going in but I was soon found myself held hostage by his writing. The book was very easy to follow and was very interesting. I was turning pages just to see what happened next and with each twist and turn was really swept up in the mystery. I highly recommend this book as a great summer read it's a really good read.

The author in the telling of this story, shows that he has researched and consulted with historians and car enthusiasts to produce a vivid description of the vehicles and the characters he portrays.

When the body of Captain Bob, a local fisherman, is found drowned with curiously no damage to his boat, local knowledge and feelings towards the Captain sense foul play. The investigation and withdrawal from public life of a wealthy oilman and his daughter, as well as several deliveries during the night, point to his involvement in the death.

The situation is fueled further when an African author meets with the United Nations in River Sunday and a bomb explodes. The only clue to help solve he mystery is 'Black-eyed Susan'. Can local Jim Tench solve the mystery before the terror escalates?

The chapters are nice and short which gives the reader plenty of time to digest and follow the plot. The background and characters are a refreshing change, depicting that small local places really do know their own and are suspicious and weary of outsiders who want to change things.

The story-line, with its twists and turns, is first class. Just when the reader thinks they have solved the mystery, the author then throws you off the track which makes this book more enjoyable. The setting description allows you to envisage it in your mind and the mystery and plot makes you exercise your 'little grey cells' as Hercule Poirot you cite.

Terror Flower by Thomas Hollyday
Review written by Jackie Paulson

Thomas Hollyday creates a story which starts out telling his readers how Captain Bob, whom is a fisherman, is found dead. He was found by Hiram Jones calls the coast guard. Captain Bob has a dog, retriever who is on the boat when the coast guard tows it to the dock. Captain Bob is seen as a "drowned" victim of his own. The odd thing is that the vines and seaweed is something that Captain Bob is familiar with so it was odd that he could be found dead, drowned and no one seeing anything! The grandson doesn't believe the story and wants a full investigation. There is a sort of Island or port where Captain Bob went daily and by it is a wealthy oil man whose name is William Strake, the owner of a large farm in north of the town located on the Island. The investigation and withdrawal from public life of a wealthy oilman and his daughter, as well as several deliveries during the night, point to his involvement in the death. Jim Tench is on the investigation to solve the mystery of how Captain Bob was murdered.

I enjoyed reading this mystery, thriller as each page led me to want to keep on reading until the mystery was solved.

Oh yeah, I love suspense filled stories and Terror Flower by author Thomas Hollyday did not let me down!

The story revolves around a popular local fisherman aptly named Captain Bob, who lives on the Chesapeake harbor in Maryland. Unfortunately for Bob, he has been found dead by what they think is a drowning. Everyone assumes this was a horrible fishing accident, but his grandson, Smote, is not hearing any of that - he believes it was murder. He enlists the help of a custom race car builder, Jim Tench, who owns a local garage to help him investigate the "crime".

Through their investigation, all roads lead to a very rich antique car collector and oilman, William Strake. Tench and Strake share a past - as Tench had a previous relationship with Strakes daughter, Julie - and he is still in love with her.

During this investigation, a well known doctor, Madeline Owerri, is speaking to a group of United Nations representatives at a hotel. The reasons for the meeting are controversial and draw huge crowds of demonstrators to the small town. Along with demonstrators, comes a terrorist, who promptly sets off a bomb at the hotel causing shear panic - and a possible escalation of violence in their town.

Tench and Smote find that Dr Owerri and the curator at Stakes car museum, Stagmatter, have a relationship - and they aren't sure if they are trying to stop violence or incent it. Regardless of which, Tench races against time to find out who "Black Eyed Susan" is, and what it means. You can find the answer by reading the book - a very good one I might add!

Author Hollyday makes you feel like you really know every character and you feel like you are walking in their shoes. Lots of drama, plots of terrorism and some ugly racism make for a very exciting and easy read. Loved it!
