The author sent me a copy of this book (mobi format) in exchange for an honest review (member of Rosie’s Book Review Team).
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
But Thad had his doubts.
They had to be wrong. There had to be something more.
And he knew he couldn’t let it go.
For the past ten years he had been drowning in a sea of gruesome and haunted nightmares. He couldn’t rest until he got to the bottom of it. He had to find the answers, he had to solve the mystery.
It would mean going back . . . opening old wounds . . . reliving old memories. He would be embarking on a haunting and suspense filled journey into his past. But the truth had to be found. If not, … the nightmares might win, … he might forever be lost in their endless black abyss.
Length: 240 pages
Thad woke with a start. Cold perspiration covering his entire body … he felt his stomach lurch violently. His eyes darted frantically around the small room. Ben still lay, sleeping soundly on the small rug beside the bed. Thad inhaled deeply, trying to calm his racing heart, trying to come to grips with the confusing nightmare that had awakened him.
The book introduces you to Thad, haunted by nightmares since the alleged murder/suicide of his parents. Ten years after this gruesome event, he returns to the cabin by the lake – hoping to find clarity and finally put an end to his nightmares. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With Twilight Images, Ethel Lewis has created an intriguing story of a man in need of closure. As his nightmares return and/or intensify, his wife supports urge to uncover the truth. Twilight Images focuses on Thad, and the steps he takes to find out what really happened when his parents died – he is not really convinced about the police’s decision to close the case. His wife Dorothy had to stay at home – due to her job; it is obvious that she is a vital part of his life. The author grants Thad his own pace to reveal information, find out something new. This is a very nice touch. The relevant characters are described in more depth, are convincing. Twilight Images is a good read for fans of suspense novels with a very human touch, a beautiful environment, and not too much gore.
This book is an enjoyable read. I’ll certainly read it again.
