A Sling Blade like killer that kills people, and mostly because he is upset and doesn't like litterbugs or old men chainsawing trees down.
Enter a couple coming to spend some time at a friend named
Bens' cottage....plus an eerie and very spooky evening ride going to it.
Edge of your seat thrill ride!

It certainly started off interesting. It had all the right elements of suspense and it got me reading further into it. Then it stops. The plot suddenly focuses mainly on the deteriorating relationship between Jay and Shelby and the killer suddenly disappears from the story. Huh? why? and the suspense was just getting along fine! However! I actually liked the spotlight on the two of them. It did provide character development despite the lack of suspense.
As the story progressed, I found myself losing interest. New characters were introduced so the reader is provided with some potential suspects. I didnít think much of any of them though. They seemed strange, and little out of place and for a minute I thought perhaps it was going to take a turn for the creepy and give the plot a more sinster feel. Unfortunately, I was wrong and it felt as if the characters were placed there out of convenience without any real thought to them.
Towards the end of the novel I just wanted this to be over with, and when the killer was revealed I wasnít interested in the story anymore. Honestly, I was wondering more about the outcome of Shelby and Jayís future instead of the mystery. Their marital situation just seemed much more interesting than the mystery itself. It had a lot of potential in the beginning, yet it fell short of its mark. I nearly didnít finish the book but as itís only about 200 pages I decided to get it over with anyway. I donít think I can recommend this to anyone, as thereís plenty of better suspense novels out there.
