Welcome to Beckon-you're not here by chance. Tom Pawlik's latest suspense thriller takes place in Beckon, Wyoming that is hiding darkness, terror and evil.
This was an interesting storyline that has three stories of different individuals and the fourth story is about them together.
Jack Kendrick is searching for his father who has been missing for 12 years and goes looking for him after finding clues in his desk-a strange drawing. He and his best friend Rudy along with a guide trek up a mountain then end up trying to find their way out through a maze of caves. They are not alone-they find a strange ecosystem in there and huge spiders that feeds on slime and lots and lots of human bones.
Elina Gutierrez is a former cop hunting for her cousin that has been missing for six months. She follows a white van to Beckon. She learns that jobs are promised to those in the van but they get to Beckon but never get home.
George Wilcox's wife has an incurable disease and takes her to Beckon on a promise of a cure. Just how much will he pay for his wife to be well. Will George or the others ever discover the chilling secret this town is holding-a miracle or evil.
This is the first book I have read by this author and it was quite a ride. Jack's story got a bit gruesome at times for me but was an interesting read that kept your attention.
Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for sending me this copy for free just for my honest opinion.
