WordsAPlenty received a copy of The Glen Paradox by M. L. Sanford in exchange for an honest review.
Crater and Mort are putting out their next volume of their Raw Crime magazine. They know someone has been watching them but they don’t know who.
Someone is planning their next move…
Detective G. Q (short for Gunther Quinn) is stressed and seeks solace in a small secluded glen in the city park; this is where he goes to clear his head but it’s not too long before his safe place becomes one of many paradoxes found in this tale of murder and blood lust. Quinn is faced with a serial killer that has young pretty women worried for their lives. Running through the list of suspects, questioning witnesses, and hitting a dead end, Quinn is given a task team to help solve the crime. Stumbling upon a clue they find themselves embroiled in a “who-done-it” with more twists and turns than a rock climbers belay knot!
The serial killer stays five steps ahead of Quinn and his team. Just when they think they have the serial killer within their grasp, another paradox is revealed. The ending will blow your mind!
“The next time it might be me. Despite his carefully designed and placed clues at the first three kills, no one, none of the city’s ‘finest’ had noticed.”
An exciting action packed murder mystery with a touch of the paranormal. Sanford once again weaves a story with vivid imagery.
“Most observers were distracted from his ‘bowling ball’ appearance (a common insult among many that he endured growing up) by his forever flushed jowls which quivered slightly when he talked, and vibrated like cherry colored Jell-O whenever he laughed.”
The plot is detailed and flawless. Character development is exemplary. Sanford’s imagination leaves the reader in a state of “OMG! I didn’t see that coming!”
M.L. Sanford’s writing skills and imagination is precise and true. His ability to capture the reader is similar to being held hostage – you do not and cannot put the book down until the end!
I have had the pleasure of reading several of Mr. Sanford’s books. He is truly an artist with words and storytelling. WordsAPlenty and I award this book with a 5 star review!
