Terror Flower by Thomas Hollyday

Review written by Jackie Paulson © 2012

Thomas Hollyday creates a story which starts out telling his readers how Captain Bob, whom is a fisherman, is found dead.  He was found by Hiram Jones calls the coast guard.  Captain Bob has a dog, retriever who is on the boat when the coast guard tows it to the dock.  Captain Bob is seen as a “drowned” victim of his own.  The odd thing is that the vines and seaweed is something that Captain Bob is familiar with so it was odd that he could be found dead, drowned and no one seeing anything!  The grandson doesn’t believe the story and wants a full investigation.  There is a sort of Island or port where Captain Bob went daily and by it is a wealthy oil man whose name is William Strake, the owner of a large farm in north of the town located on the Island.  The investigation and withdrawal from public life of a wealthy oilman and his daughter, as well as several deliveries during the night, point to his involvement in the death. Jim Tench is on the investigation to solve the mystery of how Captain Bob was murdered.

I enjoyed reading this mystery, thriller as each page led me to want to keep on reading until the mystery was solved.  This book was given to me free for my honest review.
