Mystic – Robert M. Perkinson

Mystic – Robert R. Perkinson


I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Trevor Howard is the Teton County, Wyoming sheriff, and he is investigating the recent death of 5-year-old Ronnie, along with four major arson events in and around the town of Jackson. He knows something is not right in his county, but there are few leads to go on, and no forensic evidence. Abe Anderson is the area’s pediatrician. Married to Nancy, and the father of some children, Abe has a secret fascination with a local actress and an unhealthy habit. Father’s Paul and Warren are the priests that preside over the local Catholic church, one of whom falls under scrutiny when an anonymous letter arrives, accusing one of them of misconduct with a child. And Holly Webb is an undercover police officer, brought in by Trevor to quietly investigate and infiltrate the county’s drug runners, until she finds herself in over her head.

Several different story lines are in effect and play into one another as Trevor investigates and attempts to identify the evil that has invaded Teton County. This book is loaded with fast paced action, colorful characters, and the beautifully descriptive scenery of the Teton Mountains. As Trevor continues searching for answers, a psychopathic personality disintegrates, a drug habit spirals out of control, and a young cop swears vengeance. But first all must survive the search for Mystics.

This book wasn’t quite what I expected, but it was a great read! However, there were a LOT of grammatical errors and misspellings – while they don’t at all detract from the story, I found myself quite surprised at the volume of errors.

All in all, still a great, suspenseful read!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
