4.0 out of 5 stars Suspense so taut, you can hear it twang, 14 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Frozen Past (A Jaxon Jennings' Detective Mystery Thriller Series, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I thought this might be more of a young adult book than a fully -fledged adult thriller. The story starts by introducing us to a young boy from the past, and continues in the present with more adolescents. Ellie and Luke are the main teenage characters, but they are joined by their mates on various escapades and get into varying degrees of trouble.

Just when you thought it would be a schoolboy murder mystery with boy wonder beating the cops at their own game, we meet the police team Jaxon and Sally. They have to start trying to solve the crimes committed by the serial killer who attacks both dogs and kids and does unspeakable things to both.

It becomes evident as time goes on, that the serial killer is pursuing a particular type of revenge, is stalking Ellie, and is targeting Jaxon. The tension builds as both Luke and the police try to track and bring down the man behind the killings, but always seem to be one step behind.

It's a really great story, a page-turner and there's enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. The teenage romance is a wee bit over the top as they are only 14 yet you'd think they were nearer 16 or 17. Jaxon is a rounded character and I like the way things don't just fall into place, he's a clueless as anyone would be when faced with the lack of evidence.

There's a nice touch of technological wizardry too, and a really unexpected ending. Recommended.
