Mortom

23586170

Mortom by Erik Therme

Andy Crowl barely knew his recently deceased cousin, Craig Moore, so he’s especially surprised to be named as the sole beneficiary in Craig’s will. Not that there’s much to inherit: just an empty bank account and a run-down house.

Once Andy arrives in the town of Mortom, however, he’s drawn into his puzzle-obsessed cousin’s true legacy: a twisted and ominous treasure hunt. Beckoned by macabre clues of dead rats and cemetery keys, Andy jumps into the game, hoping to discover untold wealth. But unsavory secrets—and unanswered questions about Craig’s untimely demise—arise at every turn, leading Andy to wonder if he’s playing the game…or if the game is playing him.

Something’s rotten in Mortom. And this dead man’s game might not be all that Andy is doomed to lose.

My Review

5 Stars

Andy and Katie Crowl are the beneficiary to their cousin Craig Moore. Neither has spoken to Craig in years but Andy remembers how they loved to solve puzzles together but neither has spoken to Craig recently. While looking around the house they discover a dead rat with a note and key in its mouth. Andy believes that this is the beginning of a treasure hunt and becomes obsessed.

Andy recently went through a divorce and has lost his job so it’s easy for him to get wrapped up in this treasure hunt. While Andy is searching, his sister Kate is torn. She missed the funeral and wants to give her condolences to her Aunt Mary. But she is also curious about some of the clues and can’t really leave Andy.

This was a great read. I had an idea that something big was coming and the ending was just great. Andy was one heck of a jerk and basically got what he deserved. I do have to say that may heart broke for Mary and Debbie. I just loved this story and read it in one sitting. It’s a great psychological thriller and one I recommend checking out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank The Author for the opportunity to read and share this book.
