Today’s book review is from team member Karen, she blogs at http://mytrainofthoughtson.wordpress.com/
Karen chose to read and review Twilight Images by Ethel Lewis. You can also find out more about the book and the author on November 30th when Ethel is our guest on the Mystery November Tour.
The book introduces you to Thad, haunted by nightmares since the alleged murder/suicide of his parents. Ten years after this gruesome event, he returns to the cabin by the lake – hoping to find clarity and finally put an end to his nightmares. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With Twilight Images, Ethel Lewis has created an intriguing story of a man in need of closure. As his nightmares return and/or intensify, his wife supports urge to uncover the truth. Twilight Images focuses on Thad, and the steps he takes to find out what really happened when his parents died – he is not really convinced about the police’s decision to close the case. His wife Dorothy had to stay at home – due to her job; it is obvious that she is a vital part of his life. The author grants Thad his own pace to reveal information, find out something new. This is a very nice touch. The relevant characters are described in more depth, are convincing. Twilight Images is a good read for fans of suspense novels with a very human touch, a beautiful environment, and not too much gore.
This book is an enjoyable read. I’ll certainly read it again.
