Discovering John Locke {book review}

About four days ago I wandered to my desk looking for a book to read among the “to be considered for review” pile. I pulled out “Saving Rachel,” a Donovan Creed Novel, by John Locke and almost immediately knew I wanted to read it by the description on the back cover:

“What if the best morning of your life suddenly turned into your worst nightmare? Sam Case is about to find out. Saving Rachel is the story of what happens when killers force a man to choose between his wife and his mistress… One of them must die… Who will it be? His wife? – or – His Mistress?”

Two days later I completed the book. Yup, it was that intriguing and it was a quick read.

Saving Rachel was nothing like I expected. It was unpredictable, exciting, intriguing and even a little scary. There was murder, mayhem, mystery … three of the things I enjoy most in the book. I wanted to find out what happened so bad at the end that I kept my eyes pried open long after I should have been asleep two nights in a row.

Truthfully, I don’t know what else to tell you without spoiling the story for you. Let’s just say there’s enough twists and surprises to keep your brows furrowed and your eyes darting across the page. You’ll want to find out who this Donovan Creed guy is (or maybe you’re not like me and don’t live under a rock). You’ll want to figure out who ordered the kidnapping. Where the money is coming from… and going. And who will be alive at the end.

Does that tell you anything? Probably not so you’ll have to get a copy for yourself. Believe me, it’s worth it.

And if you’re like me and not familiar with John Locke, you’ll want to pick up copies of his other books: Lethal People, Lethal Experiment and Now & Then.


Disclosure: I received a copy of Saving Rachel to facilitate my review, which in no way influenced my opinions – those are my own. No other compensation was received.
