Book Review: Collision of Lies
It's that time again!
This month, I received Collision of Lies by Tom Threadgill. Guys, this one was another page turner. If you enjoy police/ crime drama, this is the book for you.
About The Author: Tom Threadgill is a full-time author and a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the International Thriller Writers (ITW). He is currently on the suspense/thriller publishing board for LPC, a division of Iron Stream Media. He lives with his wife in rural Tennessee.
About the Book: The case was tragic. But it was an accident. Right? Three years ago, a collision between a fast-moving freight train and a school bus full of kids led to devastation and grief on an unimaginable scale. But a fresh clue leads San Antonio police detective Amara Alvarez to the unlikely conclusion that one of the children may still be alive. If she's correct, everything law enforcement believes about the accident is a lie. With time running out, Amara must convince others--and herself--that despite all evidence to the contrary, the boy is alive. And she will do everything in her power to bring him home. My Review: The author pulls you in immediately with his words. I felt as if I was watching a movie as I read along. I could picture every place and character he described in the book clearly. The main character is immediately likable and a bit quirky with her pet iguana, which was a fun added detail to the main character. The author does a wonderful job of painting the Texas lifestyle despite being from Tennessee; the way the book is written it feels as if the author himself is a Texas native.
Now for the story. This book is extremely difficult to put down. The author keeps you glued to the pages and does a great job of building suspense. Each clue that is uncovered leaves you with more questions. As you get towards the end, you're not really sure who will live or who will die. It gets a bit stressful but a fun read nonetheless.
Thanks so much for checking out my review this month. If you picked up the book, drop me a line!
