CBR III Review #3: Desert Places: A Novel of Terror by Blake Crouch

CBR III Review #3: Desert Places: A Novel of Terror by Blake Crouch

I'm loving the $2.99 price point on Amazon.  It has introduced me to several great authors. Desert Places: A Novel of Terror by Blake Crouch can be purchased here for anyone that is interested.  I stumbled across Blake Crouch because he appears to be friends with Jake Kilborn.

Novelist Andrew Thomas is enjoying a peaceful night at his home in Western North Carolina when he receives a letter stating their is a body on his property covered in Andrew's blood.  He must do everything that the letter instructs or the police will be notified about the incriminating body.  The novel takes off from there and the instructions Andrew most later follows put him and those he loves in great danger.

Desert Places is the typical cat and mouse game, but this being Blake Crouch's first novel you can see where a future horror novelist is emerging.  It does ask a few unique questions.  For example, would you turn in a killer if the evidence was most likely going to lead to your own incarceration?  I definitely plan on giving Blake Crouch another shot because the novel showed lots of promise and for $2.99 I could have done a lot worse.
