Craig Moore was a cousin that Andy Crowl barely knew, but when he died he left Andy as the sole beneficiary in his will, which only included an old house and a mountain of debt. When Andy and his sister, Kate, travel to Mortom to settle the estate, they’re caught up in a mysterious puzzle that Craig set up for Andy just before he died. The catch: Andy only has four days to solve the puzzle or something awful will happen.
Mortom by Erik Therme is a mystery with more than one twist, including a twisted ending that’ll have you gaping in awe at the author’s ability to keep you in suspense for so many pages, and then hit you with a fact that should have been obvious, but which I totally missed.
I like mysteries. I love a well-written mystery that challenges the reader. Mortom does just that, and it’s entertaining.
I received an advance reader copy of this book.
