Flashback by Jared Sandman – Review


Blurb:

LIGHTS!

In the annals of Hollywood cinema, the name Gregory Kincaid is as synonymous with Jack the Ripper as Bela Lugosi to Dracula. He portrayed the infamous serial murderer in half a dozen films, spanning a five-decade career filled with monster movies and sci-fi schlock. Twenty years ago, weary of celebrity’s harsh spotlight, he withdrew from public life, never to be seen again — until now.

CAMERA!

After a wartime accident seriously injures journalist Jenny Pearce, she turns her attention to reporting entertainment news. More comfortable on the frontlines than the red carpet, she jumps at the opportunity to track down the notoriously reclusive Kincaid.

ACTION!

The damaged pair forges an unlikely friendship, working together to write the actor’s memoir. Except someone doesn’t want Kincaid’s tell-all all told, somebody who aims to protect secrets best left buried. Fighting for their lives, Kincaid and Pearce are forced to unravel a murder mystery gone unsolved for over seventy years.

My Review:

Curse this book. I chewed off all my nails in the last 100 pages. I loved Kincaid, even though he wasn’t actually in the second half of the book. Jenny is a feisty woman with a stubborn streak wider than most people i know. And Kameko became more of a main character as the story progressed, becoming a sweet and honest woman with a heart of gold.

This is a wonderfully thrilling book with a cunning daub of mystery and humor to go with it, tugging the heartstrings and encouraging nostalgia in even the youngest of hearts.

A fine example of writing and a marvelous way to spend a day.

4.5/5
