Hollow Fissure by Max E. Stone

Max E. Stone has another and a perfect addition to the Warren/Bennett/Johnson saga.

My Review:

Max E. Stone does it again in the continuing saga of the Warren/Bennett/ Johnson series. This short story is a great addition filled with love, suspense and the intricacy of familial relationships. It’s not as pulse-pounding yet more of an in between story in which we get more connected to the characters and the complex situation caused by the sociopathic Dereck Warren.
The families are undertaking the aftermath left from One Minute There. Dealing with it one day at a time as new surprises take the reader’s breath away and deception fills the pages. Melissa’s fate and mental stability hangs in the balance.
With the author’s unique style this thriller is a quick and satisfying read!

Cut & Run by Traci Hohenstein Audiobook Review

Really fabulous read!


I made the mistake of buying book 3 first so I've never read the first two and I applaud the author because I had no problem keeping up with the story. Rachel owns and runs Florida Omni Search where he assists police in finding missing persons. This is especially important to her after losing her daughter Mallory who was abducted when she was just 3 years old. Rachel chases ghosts and follows leads but none bring her closer to finding her daughter.

In this book Matt is assaulted, hit in the head then his wife is killed and children abducted. Rachel's job is to assist him in finding his children and who did the crime. It's a clever story with a great plot that builds at a steady pace.

The only part of this book that didn't fit or caught me off guard was the narrator had a northern U.S. accent and the story takes place in the southern U.S. It was difficult to imagine them eating boiled peanuts and speaking as if they lived in the north. Otherwise Angela Dawe is a good narrator.

For anyone who loves a good mystery this is a book to read or listen to.
