I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Travel the Wicked Road by M. L. Sanford is an intriguing tale of paranormal happenings and mystery. Eaton Elvis Prescott is seeking an escape that will aid him to escape his sad, pathetic life. Headed for a job interview in New Gamore he takes a wrong turn down a deadly and life changing road.
Eaton’s prophetic words: “My former pitiful life is gone for good. Thank God!” Truer words were never uttered, and in hindsight, ones he wished had never come true.
Gamore was a town that was destroyed in one day back in 1956, leaving only four survivors. New Gamore rose out of the tragedy and struggled to survive. Key characters include Nerv, Sheriff Bustovf, Tul, Dr. Dunner, and Mrs. Smeers. With these pivotal characters and a deep secret held by two of the four survivors and one has a wonderful treasure trove of mystery to solve.
Filled with mystery and intrigue peppered heavily with paranormal happenings, Sanford has brought to life a world that lurks on the outer edges of dreams. He successfully blurs the lines of reality and shows the connections and secrets of a small town are real and for some, deadly.
“She meant the ‘in pain’ kind. They were shrieking like it was a B-grade horror movie or something. And she told the cop it wasn’t coming from just one voice either, but multiple voices – all crying out in pure agony.”
Vivid and rich in detail, the reader will connect with the characters and the story as they watch the mysteries unfold. Sanford taps into all our fears – dark lonely roads, mysterious people, the inability to walk away, and helplessness.
This is not a book to miss as it is captivatingly well written and attention holding. Sanford soundly develops the characters and several sub plots that all come together in the end with a twist that no one will have seen coming.
