September 21, 2017
An Amazon Charts most-read book. Gina Royal is the definition of average--a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband's secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor--the ultimate warrior mom. With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband's crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace. But just when she's starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake--and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed--or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she's learned how to fight evil. And she'll never stop.
Clueless Gent’s Review
This was a very good read, in my opinion. The story was unusual – but I mean that in a good way. The characters were well portrayed, the action was well documented, and the twists were unexpected.
This book was headed for a five-star review, until I got to the end. I was a bit disappointed with the way Caine brought the story to a close. But well done, overall!
The “ambiance” of Death at Thorburn Hall – if a story can have ambiance – is important, but hard to explain. So, I’ll give an example. Have you ever heard a song (think It’s a Small, Small World), and then could not get the song out of your head? What does it say about a book when a reader starts talking to family and friends using the same accent as the dialogue in the story? Well, it’s like that!
The first two books in this trilogy were pretty much thrillers – albeit good ones. This last one, however, brings in some of the spookiness that Mr. King has made a lot of money writing about. I didn’t expect that AT ALL, but I was very pleased.
