Undertow by Kelly Cozy
Paperback and e-book, 270 pages
Published November 18th 2014 by Smite Publications
Drew Finley was a crime journalist, until his mind couldn't shut out the images of blood and bodies. Alcohol made the images go away, but also ruined Drew's career and innocents' lives.
Drew's eager to make amends and he's got a story that will help him: a profile of a local celebrity who may have been framed for murder. As he digs deeper, he'll uncover secrets and grudges that will put the people he loves in danger.
My thoughts about Undertow ~~
I am a big fan of Kelly's and she has been such a great supporter of The Book Bag. I previously read and absolutely loved her book The Day After Yesterday. (Read my thoughts here.) I am so excited to tell you that she has another hit on her hands!
Undertow is really quite different from The Day After Yesterday but Kelly is such a wonderful writer that they both are great stories, in their own right. Undertow has a much darker feel to it and the reader gets entrenched with Drew as he investigates a story about a coach who may or may not have committed a murder in the past. Drew pokes his head up from his self-induced hiding place to try to get to the truth of a murder sentence which may have been given to an innocent man.
'No, stop chasing it. Stop this story now. It's going to hurt you.'
I am not going to give away too much of this story except to tell you that it kept me on the edge of my seat and held my attention clear to the end. And what?? I was not expecting the story to go that way! When I got to the end of the story, I just had to sit there for a little bit to think about the story and the characters, and the way it ended. Way to go, Kelly - your wonderful story caught me by surprise!
Undertow is another one of Kelly's books that I highly recommend!
