Book Review: Farraday Road

1 Jan

A quiet evening ends in murder on a muddy mountain road. Local attorney Lije Evans and his beautiful wife, Kaitlyn, are gunned down. But the killers don’t expect one of their victims to live. After burying Kaitlyn, Lije is on a mission to find her killer—and solve a mystery that has more twists and turns than an Ozark-mountain back road. When the trail of evidence goes cold, complicated by the disappearance of the deputy who found Kaitlyn’s body at the scene of the crime, Lije is driven to find out why he and his wife were hunted down and left for dead along Farraday Road. He begins his dangerous investigation with no clues and little help from the police. As he struggles to uncover evidence, will he learn the truth before the killers strike again?


Ace Collins is the writer of more than sixty books, including several bestsellers: Stories behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas, Stories behind the Great Traditions of Christmas, The Cathedrals, and Lassie: A Dog’s Life. Based in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, He continues to publish several new titles each year, including a series of novels, the first of which is Farraday Road. Ace has appeared on scores of television shows, including CBS This Morning, NBC Nightly News, CNN, Good Morning America, MSNBC, and Entertainment Tonight.


My Impressions:

Farraday Road by Ace Collins provided a twisting, turning, hold-your-breath ride through the backroads of Arkansas and the complex mystery of Lije Evans’ life.  What starts out as a routine murder investigation turns into a mystery involving lost trains, lost treasure and lost hope.  I really enjoyed Collins’ novel. It provided a welcome suspense puzzle for me.  I had two very quiet days to myself, and Farraday Road was a great way to spend them.  Please be advised though that there is a sequel and the novel ends with a BIG cliffhanger.  I haven’t read Swopes Ridge (book 2) yet, but it is on my must read list.  So do yourself a favor and get both books; a sure way to head off frustrated imaginations!


(I received Farraday Road free for my Kindle.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.)
