Summary: After a vicious robbery at a theme park, callous gang leader, Greg Armstrong blows up a rollercoaster to aid their escape, resulting in eighty-seven deaths. Months later, Kurt Vaughn and his family are enjoying a day out geocaching, but Kurt is about to discover that there’s more to the treasure hunt than he realises as the caches supposedly lead to the stolen money, and the crooks are on the trail. Now Kurt and his family find themselves pawns in a far more deadly game.
Review: Having enjoyed both The Kult and Killers, I knew that I wanted to read this the second it was released. I wasn’t disappointed. With an explosive start, a fast-paced story line, believable and nicely rounded characters, and a little geocaching thrown into the mix, this is one novella I couldn’t put down!
Kurt Vaughn and his family are enjoying a day out geocaching (something I’d never heard of until I read this book!) when they realise that this is not a normal treasure hunt. They are being followed by the perpetrators of a crime committed a few months previous, resulting in 87 deaths! Suddenly, it is not about whether the Vaughn family find all the caches, but rather if they survive!
As with The Kult and Killers, Jeffrey has you on the edge of your seat and your heart rate soaring. Who knew geocaching could be so deadly? A great story from beginning to end. Plus, the web-based puzzle game (linked at the end of the novella) was a pleasant surprise!! The games are hard enough to keep you entertained, but not impossible.
★★★★★ – a gripping novella, with added games!! (no, seriously! Check out the link at the end of the book!)
