This novel seemed to host a different style than Brown’s normal work; it is not bad, as always, the plot was remarkable, the writing awesome; something simply felt different. There are more twists and turns in this book than a mountain drive with s-curves & switchbacks, and they start right at the beginning of the book and don’t stop until everything is revealed at the end. When a classy woman shows up at a redneck bar in the middle of nowhere, people notice. When that woman disappears and a dead, hired assassin is found in the parking lot of that establishment, everyone notices. This is a true psychological thriller.

There are three different authors for this book; although each has similar writing techniques, their styles are not identical. The novel is one story, with each author writing one part, each with a slightly different style, it took a chapter or two for the book to run smoothly after the change of each author.

The novel: Twenty years ago, at the St. Elizabeth School Valentine Day dance, a terrible tragedy occurred on the school property. The class of 1986 moved forward, doing their best to leave the past behind. Twenty years later: with St. Elizabeth about to be closed, the only class reunion is being planned, and the horror that the girls thought they left behind is about to reclaim them, up close and personal. I would highly recommend this book

This is the 3rd book in the Interworld series. It's a fun YA sci-fi time-traveling dimension hopping series, with a good conclusion. Any more details about this book would be spoilers for the previous two books (Interworld and The Silver Dream), so I'll leave it at that.

I have never read this author before. She’s an ex government agent who knows too much. The government wants her dead. A very exciting reading; I didn't want to put it down.

This is the second book in the Interworld series. A good follow up to the first book in the series, and it seems to set up a lot for the third installment. Good as part of the series, plenty of action and excitement, but it wouldn't make much sense on its own.
