What Readers Are Saying:
The summer that Trey was twelve years old, he meet his new neighbor Eddy who was full of live and adventure. Eddy being a natural extrovert introduced Trey to many new experiences.
After one of their adventures, they are harassed by Mack Larson, a police office and respected member of a prominent family. Word soon gets out that Mack has everyone in town watching the boys and they decide to get even. As they witness a traffic stop in which Mack is threatening a young girl, the boys throw cherry bombs in Mack’s car.
As things escalate between the boys and Mack, a young woman goes missing. Trey and Eddy soon realize it was the same person they saw with Mack and they were the last people to see her. They become concerned that maybe Mack has something to do with her disapperance. As they make their suspicions know to other people they face Mack head own and it is devastating. The town learns that Mack and his prominent family are not all that they seem to be and things will never be the same in Bay’s End.
As Trey writes of that summer we feel all of motions that he has carried with him through the years as he comes to terms with that summer. This is a story of lost friendship and innocence and the healing that can finally take place so he can put the ghosts of the past to rest. As the reader, I become so engrossed in the story that it was a one sitting read. Quick and satisfying and sure to please readers who enjoy well written stories with interesting characters.
I did receive a copy of this complimentary copy of this book but with the promise of an honest review….good or bad.
About the Author:
Edward Lorn is an American horror author presently residing in the southeast United States. He enjoys storytelling, reading, and writing biographies in the third person.
Once upon a time, during a session of show and tell, a seven-year-old Edward Lorn shared with his class that his baby brother had died over the weekend. His classmates, the teacher included, wept while he recanted the painful tragedy of having lost a sibling. Edward went home that day and found an irate mother waiting for him. Edward’s teacher had called to express her condolences. This was unfortunate, as Edward had never had a baby brother.
With advice given to her by a frustrated teacher, Edward’s mother made him start writing all of his lies down. The rest, as they say, is history.
Edward Lorn and his wife are raising two children, along with a handful of outside cats and a beagle named Dot. He remains a liar to this day. The only difference is, now he’s a useful one.
