BOOK REVIEW: THE INTRUDERS
BY MICHAEL MARSHALL

We hope you enjoy this book review by Tina Avon.



The Intruders is chilling and scary AND a true thriller. Author Marshall has a knack for taking every day things and somehow making them scary and spooky - this book made me look up every once and a while and study (with suspicion) what was happenening around me and it made me certainly double check my doors when I ended up reading the final chapters, alone in my hotel room.

I really liked the main character Jack Whalen who is ex-LAPD. He has walked away from that life and is hoping, in retirement, to have an easier, better life. On a routine business trip, his wife Amy goes missing - but not really - it was all a mistake and she is back with Jack - except that Amy has somehow changed - little things that seem to be off and trigger something in Jack, warning him that something is just not right.

At the same time as the Whalen family is slowly imploding, random acts of murder and disappearances are occuring and although Whalen won't put the pieces all together for some time, the intrigue and the overall spookiness of the tone of this book was just thrilling.

When the storyline does finally come together, I am left somewhat speechless at the cleverness and brilliance demonstrated by author Marshall. At the end of the book, I wondered how on earth he managed to get me from here to there on such a smooth ride.

I really enjoyed this book and even the cover was spooky. Great read!
