5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 28 May 2013
By Jim Borg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my wife. Here is her review:
"My husband bought me this book and I really enjoyed it! Ty Treadwell's writing takes you on a mysterious and thrilling journey. He does a great job of making you feel connected to the main character, Clay. You become attached to him, you even start to think like him, and worry for him, until you are at the edge of your seat or in my case the edge of my bed...because I stayed up all night to finish it! You will be reading as fast as you can to find out what happens. -N. Borg"

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic read 19 Mar. 2014
By Caravan Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

As soon as I started reading this book, I was hooked. The mystery and suspense builds with each page and the ending took my breath away.

When Clay starts getting mysterious notes, at first he thinks they're from an avid fan. But as each note leads to increasingly suspicious secrets including missing women and possible murder scenes, Clay realises that he's not dealing with a fan - he's dealing with a lunatic.

As with any mystery book, the end is key to your enjoyment. And Secret 77 did not disappoint. There are enough clues provided to let you solve the mystery, but at the same time it's not completely obvious. I tried to work out the ending as I went along and whilst I figured out some things, there were other things that I hadn't worked out. After reading the last page, I can honestly say I felt chills. I can also say this is not the kind of book you should read late at night, alone in your house whilst a storm rages outside.

From a technical standpoint, the book was extremely well written and easy to read. The characters were also well-fleshed out and complex. This made the book even more enjoyable as you don't know who to trust and you suspect everyone at every turn.

What else can I say? Nothing, except you need to read this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will keep you up reading -- I didn't want to put it down! 6 Aug. 2013
By IndieHeart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There are many, many things I liked about Secret 77 by Ty Treadwell. First, the author does a fine job of starting out at a slower pace to establish the characters and their relationships, then as the story progresses, building up to a driving level of suspense that kept me reading late into the night. Start this one sometime when you've got several hours to spare or can sleep in the next morning. You may not want to put it down.

Second, although this is a Mystery / Suspense novel, author Treadwell has a talent for beautiful descriptive language. By the nature of the genre, the story has to move along, and an author can't linger over the beauty of his passages; however, the word pictures he drew were often small sweets to be unhurriedly savored before once again giving in to the sense of urgency.

As the story begins, main character Clay describes his life since his wife's accident six months before, when she fell off a ladder and suffered a head injury. The pain from the injury has turned the once vibrant, artistic Lindsay into a semi-invalid.

When crime writer Clay starts to receive notes with numbered "secrets" which mirror the style of clues he gave in his recently published book, he sees it as a harmless prank by a fan. When the notes turn threatening, Clay is forced to go on a search for answers while trying to protect his vulnerable wife from learning too much about a past indiscretion. To assist him with his search he enlists the aid of both an old family friend and a private investigator along with a young female "housekeeper" whose true role is to help him take care of his wife.

The plot has nice little twists and turns, and most of the secondary characters are well-rounded. As the body count grows, nearly everyone begins to look like a suspect. If you enjoy trying to figure out who the killer is before the end of the book, you will have plenty of potential hints to sink your teeth into as you and Clay try to piece together the clues.

I do have a few small criticisms of this otherwise top-notch read. Initially, Clay got right up my nose with his constant whining about how difficult it is to take care of someone, do the housework, and try to earn a living. Seriously - anyone who has ever been a working mother would feel justified in giving him a hearty slap!

The second thing that worked my nerves about Clay is that the only real reason he didn't call the police immediately was because he was concerned it would get him in trouble with his wife, and later, with the authorities themselves. Clay was supposed to be a nice guy, but I kept running up against that basic selfishness and had trouble connecting with him as a character in a fully sympathetic way.

With that said, I expect that selfishness is something the writer probably struggled with as he sought perfection in his tale because if it wasn't there, there wouldn't be a story. It made me view Clay less positively as a character, but I definitely wouldn't have given up the suspenseful and engaging story it allowed Mr. Treadwell to write in order to have a less selfish main character.

In the end, I can comfortably recommend Secret 77 as a 4 star novel in the Mystery / Suspense genres. It compares favorably with Dean Koontz (in Suspense mode) and Gillian Flynn (in Gillian Flynn mode). The novel contains a few explicit sex scenes starring the book's married couple and decidedly graphic descriptions of murder scenes. For this reason, I don't consider it suitable for readers below the age of 17 or so.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner! 7 Jun. 2013

I read a ton of books and this one was a fun, exciting read- from the get go. Nothing worse than a slow moving book and this was not one of those. Perfect summer beach/pool read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starts with a bang and keeps up the pace. 6 Jun. 2013
By Deborah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was hooked from the first line of Secret 77. Some stories need time to establish a mystery but this one was compelling from the very first line. Who wrote the disturbing note? A deranged fan? A prankster? A killer? Why would someone do this? What is the motive? Has a crime been committed or is it all a hoax? So many questions kept me thinking and turning pages until late in the night! Everyone and no one could be a suspect.

This is a very entertaining read with likable, 3-diminsional characters, especially Clay, a nice guy trying hard to juggle his career as a writer while taking care of his sick wife and protecting her from a stalker with possibly more sinister intentions. Some of the creepy images stuck in my head but I don't want to give anything away so I'll keep it short. All in all a very vivid, suspenseful and entertaining read!
