Local Poet by Paul Trembling
He Killed Her, But Who Was She?
About the Book: ROB SEATON KILLED A WOMAN. Rob doesn’t know Laney Grey. But when she steps out in front of his van and dies on impact, his life will never be the same. The police declare him innocent, but how do you deal with the guilt? He has to know who she was, why she chose to die, and why he had to be part of her death. To understand her, he must learn to read her poetry. To know her, he must unravel the mysteries of her past. As Laney’s dark secret starts to come to light, and Rob’s innocence is questioned, he must learn the full truth. But truth comes at a cost… Will Rob be the one who has to pay?
My Thoughts: A local poet has a dark past and it’s about to come front and center. It all begins with a car accident where two lives won’t be the same ever again. It was an accident, a case of the being in the wrong place at the wrong time. While the main character is cleared of wrong doing he still has a lot of emotional baggage to work through which is the theme of the book. To do this though he starts to look for the girl’s past and find who she is. This makes for an ingraining mystery novel that’s a little different than what you’d typically expect and is a whole lot of fun to read.
