What Would You Do?
Everything changed from the time Deputy Sheriff Keane stopped a man from committing suicide. After Keane tackled Jackie Johnson to keep him from jumping off the bridge, Johnson told him, “You’ll wish you pushed me.” Almost from that moment on, everything started going wrong for the Deputy.
This is a terrifying story of people that Keane knows being targeted, and brutally killed by a serial killer. Horrifying pictures of the victims begin arriving at the newspaper in the small-town of Hidden Springs that Keane lives in. Other pictures are sent to Keane’s office. Some of the evidence seems to point to Johnson being the killer, but certain things aren’t adding up if he is the one doing it. For instance, Johnson seemed like a very simple man. But these killings are the work of a highly intelligent, albeit sick, mind.
The only thing Keane knows is the killer always seems to be at least one step ahead of him, and doesn’t waste much time between killing one person, and moving on to his next victim. While trying to protect those Keane loves, along with trying to stop the mysterious madman, the deputy suddenly finds himself snared in a trap the killer has set for him. The Deputy is being framed for these murders.
Who is next? Deputy Keane has been running himself ragged trying to protect those he cares about. Will anyone believe that Keane is really the killer, and keep him in jail? What will become of Keane’s Aunt Lindy, along with his good friend Alex? Both of these women seem to be the killer’s next targets. Will jailing Keane take away their protection, and make one or both of them the killer’s next victims?
This story is told from a Christian point of view, but parts of it are very chilling, and intense. I have a very active imagination, so this is right on the very edge of what I could read without it keeping me awake at night. This is the second book in the Hidden Springs Mystery Series, but this installment stands on its own, and it isn’t necessary to read the first one to appreciate this one. This 5-star book is recommended for anyone who enjoys intense mysteries, as long as, the reader is not bothered by serial killers being part of the story.
