SYNOPSIS:

A literary page-turner about a beloved college professor accused of murdering his entire family, and one small-town cop’s dangerous search for answers.

Thomas Huston, a beloved professor and bestselling author, is something of a local hero in the small Pennsylvania college town where he lives and teaches. So when Huston’s wife and children are found brutally murdered in their home, the community reacts with shock and anger. Huston has also mysteriously disappeared, and suddenly, the town celebrity is suspect number one.

Sergeant Ryan DeMarco has secrets of his own, but he can’t believe that a man he admired, a man he had considered a friend, could be capable of such a crime. Hoping to glean clues about Huston’s mind-set, DeMarco delves into the professor’s notes on his novel-in-progress. Soon, DeMarco doesn’t know who to trustβ€”and the more he uncovers about Huston’s secret life, the more treacherous his search becomes.

THOUGHTS:

Two Days Gone is one of those underrated books of 2017. It is a mystery/thriller novel that follows a Sergeant who is in-charge of the case of a famous writer whose family is found dead in their house and the only suspect is the writer himself.

The story is dual perspective following the sergeant and the writer as they embark in their own journey and lead us to the truth of the events that transpire in the night of the murder. What I like about this dual perspective is you can easily distinguish the voice of the sergeant and the writer. And it gives you the feeling of being a part of the investigation team while reading the book.

The plot and the twist and turn of the story feels so real. And just when you thought that knowing who the murderer is will be the end of the story, there will be more twist coming in your way.

The author of this book is brilliant and I can’t wait to read more of his work. Highly recommending this to anyone who loves a good mystery/thriller novel.
