BOOK REVIEW: DARK FRIDAY
Jasonville is a small town in Indiana but the death of five young girls brings Jasonville to the publicís attention. Five popular girls are viciously murdered and it all happens in one horrible evening. A sixth girl is attacked but manages to survive. The police chief, Bertrand Rix, is also attacked on the same night. He recovers but the horror of the night will stay with him forever.
Chief Rix captures Cameron Ford and arrests him for the murders. The district attorney wants to immediately take Cameron to trial. But did Cameron really commit the murders? That is what Chief Rix wants to find out. He isnít sold on the idea that Cameron actually was able to hit so many locations and kill so many girls as well as attack a sixth one in a short period of time.
Cameron is a member of The Fraternal Order of Friday. The order is a group of friends who get together to drink beer and watch horror movies. Casey Wood is one member of the order. Casey is stunned that one of his friends could actually murder even one person to say nothing of five young girls.
Another young boy who slipped out of his room late at night saw something but wonít come clean with the whole story.
Kevin Gibson is a reporter for the Indianapolis Tribune and travels to Jasonville to write the story of the murders but Kevin also gets more than a story. He is not welcomed with open arms in Jasonville.
The crimes have affected the entire community. Nothing will ever be the same in Jasonville.
Dark Friday is an excellent mystery. It is fiction and I hope never to read about a real-life happening such as the events that unfolded in Dark Friday.
