BOOK REVIEW: AFRAID
BY JACK KILBORN
We hope you enjoy this book review by
A small town with an equally small police force, out in the middle of nowhere, has always been peaceful. When a helicopter crashes near the town, and something horrifying is released, the gory violence begins. But what if it's not an accident that brought this terror to the town?
A few townspeople, your average next door neighbors, will have to fight to survive. What is the secret behind the truth - and who can you trust?
I didnít used to be afraid of the dark OR paranoid, but after reading AFRAID, I think I might be both! What scares me most is the way this author takes the everyday scenarios one takes for granted and creates horrifically terrifying situations that are completely believable. Iíve always liked this authorís (aka JA Konrath) use of imagery and this story follows that same path. Iíd venture to say that this particular book reminds me of those first Dean Koontz books that scared the pants off me and made me not want to get out of bed in the dark. The heroes he uses are the everyday people, the ones with the most to lose, and the people that are the ones that step up in the real world when needed. While parts of this book were almost painful to read, the entire story kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end. If you like this book, you should try Konrathís ďJackĒ Daniels novels too. Now Iím going to make sure the doors are locked!
