Genre: Mystery, Thriller, & Suspense
Andy Crowl barely knew his recently deceased cousin, Craig Moore, so he’s especially surprised to be named as the sole beneficiary in Craig’s will. Not that there’s much to inherit: just an empty bank account and a run-down house. Once Andy arrives in the town of Mortom, however, he’s drawn into his puzzle-obsessed cousin’s true legacy: a twisted and ominous treasure hunt. Beckoned by macabre clues of dead rats and cemetery keys, Andy jumps into the game, hoping to discover untold wealth. But unsavory secrets—and unanswered questions about Craig’s untimely demise—arise at every turn, leading Andy to wonder if he’s playing the game…or if the game is playing him. Something’s rotten in Mortom. And this dead man’s game might not be all that Andy is doomed to lose.
Four Boundless Stars
This book was a twisted and disturbing mystery. Andy is given a house when his cousin Craig dies. He and his sister Kate go to check out the house and when they get there a mystery begins. It seems their cousin, or someone, left clues behind. Andy finds himself on the search for clues around the house and in the town of Mortom. The game is on. This story was wrote to make you ask questions. What is going on? Who is doing this? And the most important question....what really happened to Craig? This book was good and has a great beginning that sucks you in. At times it kind of lost me, but it picked up and really kept me enthralled and guessing. It was a bit of a disturbing story with a few gory details along the way. I guess that's what keeps the reader so wrapped up in mystery. Around every corner Kate and Andy find themselves even more confused. The story was very well written and had a great set of characters, even though some were a bit strange. Overall this is a great mystery. The ending though, is a real kicker!!!
