The Conveyance by Brian Matthews
(Excerpt from Goodreads) Beneath the calm waters and pastoral fields of Emersville, a deadly secret lurks. But when psychologist Dr. Brad Jordan stumbles upon the odd happenings in the town, he sets off a series of tragedies that threatens to expose a danger long kept hidden from the world. Relentlessly following a trail of madness, suicide, and murder, he soon finds himself confronted with a massive conspiracy, and a sinister device known as the Conveyance.
Matthews, who holds a graduate degree in psychology, draws on his vast experience as a therapist to weave a tale of abuse, betrayal, hope, and terror. The Conveyance is his third book.
Dr. Bad Jordan is a psychologist and we start with him talking to a troubled teen, Doug that recently lost his father. On the way home he is in a car accident that nearly kills him then returns home to find his wife crying in the shower. Their efforts at starting a family have failed again. After a bad night of card with close friends, they decide to visit Emersville to do some tourist shopping. There they find a strange doll with a shop keeper that suffers from a stroke.
But things get weird when during his next session with Doug, Doug seems to be electrocuted by the doll. Then there is the strange happening at home with his wife and then a burglary. It seems there is a strange metal egg in the doll and someone wants to keep it quiet. But the more Brad looks into it the stranger things become until he learns about The Convergence.
I had no idea where this book was going when I started reading it. But I couldn’t put it down and just had to see how it ended. I felt for Brad, he has a rough past with his wife but they are trying to work through it. I loved the whole idea of the dolls, very creepy. All I can say is beware the Green Queen.
If you are looking for a great scifi thriller look no further, you need to check out The Conveyance. Since this is Brian Matthews third book I will definitely be looking into his other two.
I received The Conveyance for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
