Another opportunity arose this weekend to read a book I couldn't put down. Don't you just love when that happens? In this case, the book was MY FATHER'S SON by Terri Fields. <BR/><BR/>Kevin Windor's world is sent spinning off its axis when he sees his father's mug shot on the evening news. The same father who spends every other weekend kicked back, playing video games with Kevin. Authorities believe he is the hideous DB25 Monster -- the monster who tortures women and leaves them to die. <BR/><BR/>As the investigation proceeds at a snail's pace, Kevin is denied access to his father, which means he has no explanation as to why all of this is happening or how he's supposed to proceed with his life. How do you get back to normal when you share the face of a monster and are suspected of the same horrific acts purely by association? <BR/><BR/>Terri Fields, veteran author, plops readers into the hot seat and forces them to imagine what life would be like if usual comforts, like friends, privacy, and freedom, were stripped away. <BR/><BR/>The raw suspense of this novel will keep pages fluttering by and engage readers until the wee hours of the morning, which is when they'll finally be able to put the book down. The images and ideas remain long after, though. <BR/><BR/>I'll let you know when they go away.

If I had to summarize in 3 words they would be: read this book. It is one of those books you just can't put down and has you reading until the last page. It is totally worth the $9.99 !!!! Happy reads!

This book was really good! Better than I thought it would be. At the end, there was a perfect twisty ending and it turned out the father was a great guy! But, me being a very emotional person I felt soo bad for the son and mother.
