Straight Talk about "Comes a Horseman"
Comes a Horseman
Two F.B.I. agents investigate a series of bizzare grizzly killings and soon realize, they've become the killer's target as well. This eerie crime page-turner will keep you guessing until the end. But warning, it is not for the faint of heart. The violence is as real and graphic as most anything you'll find in the secular world. Yet Liparulo manages to tightly weave a strong, tense mystery that involves a Norseman, ancient secrets and an evil much greater and darker than the first pages reveal.All against a subtle backdrop of Christianity.
This genre is the type of reading I'm partial to, Therefore it raises the bar for me. I expect much more from authors of crime/mystery/suspense. Especially given the fact I'm a Ann Rule/True Crime non-fiction fan. Liparulo did an excellent job considering this is his first novel. Or not considering as I never would have guessed this work was from a first-time author.
While "Horseman" was so well done it was as if the reader could feel the evil and darkness that prevails throughout the book, Liparulo clearly draws the parallel between good and evil as his complex and multi-dimensional characters try to sort it out.
I was absorbed by the author's ability to draw me into his plot and characters and found it a great tense and exhilarating read.
Liparulo can entertain either a male or female reader who likes a good murder mystery but another warning, this is another one of those "don't read it alone" books!
