Book #62 The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted

51W9pXkozNL._SX105_I picked this book from Amazon’s recommendation engine and wasn’t disappointed. The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted is quite the thriller that I had a hard time putting down. It’s a bit of a mystery that draws you in as one man, a reporter, must investigate his past.

At the funeral of his mother, the grown reporter is rather withdrawn. We learn that his mother was never kind to him, in fact, the arguably abused him psychologically as a child. He’s grown to get past some of it, but not all. As he’s leaving, he discovers a piece of jewelry and a strange letter from his uncle to his mother that makes him suspect them of murder in the past.

The book mostly deals with the journey as the reporter goes to Texas and investigates. That’s his job for a national magazine, and we find him using his skills to uncover what might have happened decades ago. The book alternates between the present, and then relevant portions of his childhood as they might relate to his investigation.

It’s exciting, and even though I suspected the outcome near the middle of the book, I really enjoyed this one.
