A perplexing mystery.
Reviewed in the United States on October 20, 2018
William Graves in the book "Shocker," paints a picture with skillfully chosen words. When I finished the book, it was like I'd seen the movie. I was there with Mary Elizabeth planting her garden. Through her eyes, I saw the house across the street that emits a green glow. Its strange contents are emblazoned on my retina. I've been granted a glimpse inside her mind. I understand her suppressed memories. I feel her terror when the serial killer surfaces. While the book features a perplexing mystery, there's romance too. There's a marriage in turmoil facing temptation and infidelity. There's even a bit of erotica. There's interracial relationships. There's heartbreak. The subject matter and timing coincide perfectly with the "me too" movement. It's easy to read, but hard to forget.
