A Thrilling Dead End: Craig Faustus Buck


Johno Beltran is a former homicide detective who fell from grace when a stupid mistake allowed a rich, sadistic sex killer to go free. When the notorious murderer drives into the restaurant parking lot where Johno now works as a valet, their reunion leads Johno down a dark, twisty road toward a deadly collision between paranoia and reality. A short story.

This book was a thriller even though it barely lasted a few pages. I wanted to know what happened next and I just kept turning pages (=not literally, I can’t, it being an ebook!!). This book really shows you that you don’t need a lot of pages to write an excellent book.

Johno is a former homicide detective, whose life throws a curveball when he meets his nemesis face to face. Johno can’t get over the past and wants to dig in deeper and follows his past home. What follows hence, is a really thrilling account with a most unexpected end.

I think that the author is really crafty and smart to write a short because the story is simply perfect. It has all the ingredients required to be a success, it has drama, a strong set of characters and that pull which is so necessary to draw the reader into the book.

I can’t really write a longer review because the book is AMAZING and I don’t want to ruin your surprise. YOU MUST READ THIS!! Must!!

My RATING: 3.5/5

3.5 starts
