Book Review: The Last Track by Sam Hilliard
I like to read books that are fast paced and keep me on my toes. I enjoy mystery and suspense, stories that keep me guessing until the very end.
The Last Track by Sam Hilliard is that kind of book. I didn't want to put it down. Each scene pulled me into the next as the characters entered conflict after conflict.
Have you ever read the last few pages of a book before you read the rest and then regretted it later? I admit I was tempted to do that with this one because as I read the first few chapters, there were so many suspects in my mind that I was getting impatient to know "whodunit". However, I'm so glad I didn't. It would have spoiled the whole experience for me. Instead, I went on reading, content to try and figure it out as I went along. And as I came to the last chapters, I found that I had figured some of it right, but there were still some surprises at the end. This was good writing.
