I love the feeling of finishing off another book- making it to the back cover always gives me a sense of accomplishment, even though that’s kind of silly when you really think about it. I digress…
By all accounts Kevin [Parson] is leading a virtuous life. But like al people, Kevin has his secrets. And someone wants them revealed.
While driving home from graduate school, Kevin receives a call from a deluded stranger who calls himself Slater. Slater demands that Kevin confess his sin in the next three minutes or the car he’s driving will be blown to pieces. With the threat, he offers a riddle: What falls but never breaks, what breaks but never falls?
Thus starts a harrowing chain of threats with progressively higher stakes. Another riddle, another three minutes. Confess your sin, Kevin.
The problem is Kevin has no idea what sin. And Slater’s cycle won’t stop until he’s dead.
Now only Samantha, the woman he once loved more than life itself, can help him uncover the secrets of a mysterious past. But Samantha may soon be dead as well.
- Is the story itself is plausible (within the setting created by the author)? In other words, does the story itself make sense?
- Is the plot was captivating enough to keep my attention throughout the duration of my reading experience?
- Did the story have a good plot twist? There’s nothing I hate more than authors who string me along for hundreds of pages just so I can see the story unfold EXACTLY as I expected it to from Chapter One.
