The Monster of Silver Creek
Review by Nancy
Nathan Sommers had great intentions when he allowed himself to be convinced to move to Silver Creek by his wife. She was expecting, wanted to be “home”, all the usual. He was in love with Jennifer and would move earth to make her happy. Nathan tried to stop Jennifer from leaving but she wouldn’t listen. She drove off and ended up wrapping her car around a tree, killing herself and her unborn child.
The fact that the Mayor of Silver Creek was Jennifer’s father didn’t help things any. Nathan could do nothing right and was thinking of leaving when the killings began. All alike in pattern, two punctures, 3” apart on each female victim. That is the only clue to soloving the murders. This was not good as the Mayor is getting very testy for an arrest.
Nathan and his team were doing all that they could withint their powers. It was hard what with keeping up on all the other reports like the usual cat-up-a-tree reports, drunks wandering in the streets and the new bakery owner’s cat getting eaten by her neighbor’s dog. (She was NOT happy!) (Dog was!!) Nathan and his deputy, Jake, don’t need anything to get in their way.
WARNING! This is a great book. But don’t plan on reading just a little bit to put yourself to sleep. It won’t work. You’ll be up until 2:30 a.m like I was today finishing it! Ms. Buchanan is a good, storyteller. Her plots are well thought out. The “Who” will amaze you and the ending……well, let’s just leave it at that.
