This is an excellent Mystery and Suspense novel by Mike Wells. Mike Wells says that his goal has always been to write books that are engaging and entertaining that you can’t stop reading after a couple of pages. ‘Unputdownable books’ Mike Wells has achieved that and you get exactly that in this book. You are hooked right from the start, all the way through the book which comes to a cliff hanger of an ending that leaves the reader gasping and eagerly wanting to go straight on to read book two in the series.

Mike Wells writes in a variety of genre, thrillers and suspense, young adult and horror.
