DIOING A GOOD DEED NEVER FELT SO BAD
Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane doesn't particularly enjoy being touted as the hero of Hidden Springs after pulling a suicidal man back from the edge of the Eagle River bridge in front of dozens of witnesses - a few of whom caught the breathtaking moments with their cameras. But the media hype doesn't last long as a new story pushes its way into the public consciousness of Hidden Springs' concerned citizens.
Photos of a dead girl arrive in the mail, and Michael becomes convinced she was murdered by the man he saved. With a killer one step ahead, things in Hidden Springs begin to unravel. Now Michael must protect the people he loves - because the killer could be targeting one of them next.
Review: What a quandary! Sheriff Michael Keane does the "right" thing - he saves a stranger from leaping off a bridge into a roaring, run-off river. One would expect, after a little therapy, that the stranger would join the citizens of Hidden Springs in declaring Michael a hero for saving his life.
Unfortunately...this hero isn't grateful. Unfortunately... he decides to send Michael "tokens" of his displeasure - photos of murdered girls.
Michael is horrified and guilt-ridden. The reason these girls are dead is because of him... but what should he have done? He had no way knowing at the time that the guy he was saving was a murderer.
Now, racing time as the killer rapidly begins killing every girl and woman Michael is in contact with or comes close to, Michael frantically tries to figure out who the mystery killer is. Things go from deadly to downright creepy when evidence begins to show up in very disturbing places and when the wrong people show up dead. As it becomes more and more personal, Michael begins to realize that he may be the killer's ultimate end game.
"Murder Comes by Mail" is suspenseful and nail-biting. I really enjoyed it - especially the very unexpected twist at the end. I love it when books shock me. Perhaps my favourite aspect of this novel was being immersed in the quirky world of Hidden Springs and it's humorous and delightful cast of citizens. A great read!
