The Vanishing Wife Book Review

The Vanishing Wife: An Action-Packed Crime Thriller

By Barry Finlay

How far will a man go when his family is threatened? Mason Seaforth is about to find out. He is a mild mannered accountant living a quiet, idyllic life in the quiet community of Gulfport, Florida with his wife, Samantha. At least, it's quiet and idyllic until Sami, as she's known to her friends, vanishes the night of their 20th anniversary. Mason is thrown into a life that is meant for other people as he and their brash friend, Marcie Kane, try everything to find out what has happened to Sami. A search of Sami's computer uncovers notes describing a past that Sami has buried for more than 20 years. Mason and Marcie are thrust into a race against a sadistic killer to discover what has happened to Mason's wife. He reluctantly exchanges his spreadsheets for a Glock 17 and he and Marcie follow a trail left behind by Sami which unexpectedly leads them deeper and deeper into a dark world in Canada. Mason is required to make decisions that he could never imagine himself making and each one has deadlier consequences than the last. The wrong one could result in the death of his entire family. 

MY REVIEW OF The Vanishing Wife

Mason and Sami Seaforth celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary enjoying each other’s company. When Mason awakens early the next morning, Sami has vanished without a trace. After reporting her disappearance to the police, he receives a threatening call. With the help of Sami’s best friend Marcie, Mason must unravel the sparse clues that Sami has left behind, in order to find his wife before a very dangerous man from her past does.

I enjoyed this suspenseful tale of mystery and intrigue. It kept me on edge trying to figure out just why a wife would up and leave what appeared to be an idealic life for seemingly no reason at all. I could not put the book down until I finished it. The camaraderie between Mason and Marcie was what made the story, in my opinion. I liked that they didn’t have a good relationship before, but worked perfectly together in their crisis. I really liked the plot and the characters that Finley brought to life in this story. I could tell how much the characters had grown by the ending. The plot takes place in just a few days, but it seemed like so much longer. I really wanted the story to continue.

And The Blood Ran Black Review

And the Blood Ran Black

By Nathan E. Harvey

And the Blood Ran Black by [Nathan E Harvey]
Two brothers are thrust into a reality that makes them yearn for their years of deployment overseas. There were no news tickers or conspiracy theories to soften the sudden reality; the two soldiers witnessed the beginning of the end firsthand. Where would you go? Who would you save? This is the account of a small group of strangers who become family in order to somehow carry on against impossible odds.

Finally, there’s a zombie book that doesn’t have to rely on shock value and gore to elicit an emotional response. Between bouts of laughter and of tears, “And the Blood Ran Black” will have you forgetting to breathe while it unapologetically grabs you by the eyeballs.

MY REVIEW OF And the Blood Ran Black

Brothers John and Moto were fighting in the same squad overseas, when they were imprisoned by underground boxing mobsters. That’s when they discover experimental procedures were being done on people, essentially turning them into zombies. The brothers escape and make their way back to the United States for safety, and to prepare for the worse. They quickly discover the zombie virus has spread worldwide. As they search for a safe refuge, they add more people to their ragtag group. But, of course, they lose a few too.

If you like The Walking Dead, you will enjoy this story line. Almost always in these types of stories, there is an instigator, or a troublemaker. I’m glad to say that there were none. They were all likeable people. I don’t believe the story suffered for it either. I was scared for the group and feared any of them could be the next to go. After becoming so invested in each one, it was heartbreaking to imagine the next one to go. I was hoping they would all make it to the end of the book, but with this type of story, it is inevitable that some won’t make it. The twist at the end was unexpected, but welcomed.
