“Death is the beginning of eternity,” Jeff whispered.
A down and out true crime author, a trip across the country to meet a cult leader toting a teenager and a seemingly haunted house make for a quick draw into this thriller-esque read. I am not the typical ghost hunting, paranormal activity, cult believer but I did enjoy the plot line. The story goes back and forth from past to present allowing the reader to experience the world of Jeffrey Halcomb, his followers and their effect on Lucas and his daughter. My favorite aspect was the tie in after each chapter with a newspaper report, obituary, etc that related to the story and gave more insight into the characters and their deaths. Overall, this book felt like many other thrillers that are lining the shelves but with a unique ending. I would definitely read more from this author when my “thriller” mood strikes.
