    GOOD MYSTERY

    Really liked this book

    Had you hooked the minute you started reading. Do they proofread the books? There was so many misspelled words that it suprised me that they wouldn't have been corrected.

    A must for my collection!

    You out did yourself again! I'm going to have to read all of these again and in the proper order. It's definitely well worth it! I look forward to reading more of Ben Hood. Thanks for keeping him respectful, honest, and decent. Who would'nt want him as their body guard! A++++

    Just finished 1106 pages of pure entertainment. Seems long, but the pages fly by!
    Be sure to read Mr. Lindseys book, The Coral Reef Affair first, it will explain a few things in this book.
    It is unbelievable that both of these books were FREE!! They are worth paying for!!

    A thirlling book from start to finish, featuring likeable charac

    A thirlling book from start to finish, featuring likeable characters from the author's first book Coral Sea Affair (which is also an excellant read).

    Black Mountain Affair is about a serial killer who is systematically killing in the Cooktown area in Far North Queensland, Australia and is hiding their remains deep within Black Mountain. The story follows the dedicated detectives and Ben Hood who is supposed to be protecting a socialite on their journey to find the killer.

    The story takes lots of twists and turns and keeps you in suspense right up until the last chapter. It also touches on Australian Aboriginal mythology which adds an interesting element to the book.

    An exciting "edge of your seat thriller".
