Reviews of Cypress Trap, The (2015)
Review by michael a draper (2015-09-24)
As I've been going through some medical procedures, I've been looking for a book to get my mine off health and bury myself (figuratively) in a good novel.
In this well written, gripping story, a wife and husband are having difficulty with their marriage. He is about to go on a fishing trip and she persuades him to go with her. What she didn't know is that he had already asked to bring one of his buddies, so there is a threesome.
The story moves right along and something about the husband's past catches up with him. The party is crashed by a group of murderous teenagers who claim that Owen, the husband, has something of theirs and want it back.
There is no help to be found and things get dict fast.
Not to give away plot but just imagine a Florida waterway where an innocent party of people who have gone fishing is stalked.
The characters are well described and find themselves in a dire predicament. The reader becomes engrossed and will have difficulty putting down the book.
