THE TREES BEYOND THE GRASS by Robert Reeves is launching today on September 23, 2013.
A lawyer, loyal son and brother – unaware of his private turmoil and the mental wall that holds him together. But, during a visit back home to Charleston, he receives a call from the FBI that a stranger has been found poisoned and mutilated. What Cole learns next threatens to bring down the wall and expose him to the sharp emotions behind it when he is told that there is more to his childhood nightmares than just dark places. Betrayed by his memory, the clue to his past and his ultimate survival rests in a stranger, Cash Calhoun, a man he has never met but has been tied to his entire life. Together, they embark on a hunt to find the truth held in the dark shadows of Cole’s mind and the marshy landscape of the Holy City before a hunter from Cole’s past destroys their newly discovered bond and their lives.
Steeped in southern drawl and suspense, THE TREES BEYOND THE GRASS, the first in the Cole Mouzon thriller series, is a riveting story about the amazing, but sometimes destructive, power of our minds to protect us from the evils of life, while undermining our ability to discover true happiness.
Look for book two of the Cole Mouzon series, WHEN ASPENS QUAKE, coming Spring 2014.
THE TREES BEYOND THE GRASS (A Cole Mouzon Series) by Robert Reeves
Author Robert Reeves has managed to get a lot of information in his well-written book, ‘The Trees Beyond The Grass’. The suspenseful story line keeps the reader intrigued until the end. It could stand alone as a fantastic novel, but Reeves puts so much more into his book. All I can say is ‘Wow!’
The book begins with the sick and twisted killer, performing and describing not one, but two, murders. The reader is given clues about Cole’s nightmares and his past, throughout the story. I was genuinely surprised when discovering that Cole was next on the sick and twisted killer’s list.
Like a spider spinning its web, author Robert Reeves spins the reader into a story of friendships, love, and murder.
The reader also gets a history lesson, facts, and knowledge of the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina. Reeves’ very detailed scenery makes the reader feel as though they are right there with the characters.
The book is emotional and intense, with strong characters, chilling insights into the killer’s mind, and the relationship of Cole and a Professor, he meets during the story.
‘The Trees Beyond The Grass’ is a must read for anyone who likes murder, mysteries, suspense, and thrillers.
I look forward to reading more from this author!
