    Review of The Clearing of Travis Coble
    5 stars
    I learned of this book from the publisher’s group on Goodreads (Untreed Reads) and enjoyed the comments so much I determined to buy and read it. I certainly was not a bit disappointed; it was well worth the time reading it and I foresee I’ll be rereading it. For the shorter length, the author does a remarkable job of deepening several characters, kind of like holding a diamond up to the sunlight and turning it around and around looking at the various facets. Also the plotting here has the kick of a boomerang, when the thrower doesn’t think to get out of its way. I must point out that although the outcome (and the process to get there) is gently foreshadowed, never once is it telegraphed and I did not see it coming at all.




    I can’t wait to read more from this accomplished author.

    Chilling!

    Book source ~ Many thanks to Untreed Reads for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

    It’s been 20 years since Travis Coble was acquitted in the murder of his two younger brothers, Ike and B.J. Dick Meyers, a psychology professor at a university in Chicago, wants to write a paper about Coble, how being acquitted by a jury of his peers yet still seen as a murderer by the locals has affected his life. The only important question that needs to be answered however is whether Meyers will come out of the interview unscathed.

    Right out of the gate this story caused my skin to crawl with every word, every sentence, every paragraph, until I just wanted to yell at Meyers to get the hell outta there. That this wouldn’t end well. Oh boy, I hate when I’m right.
