Also the owner of: http://silversolara.blogspot.com I enjoy reading historical fiction and mystery. I live in Pennsylvania and am a retired business teacher.
Author and loving family man turned murderer? Thomas Houston loved his family, his job, teaching, and writing his novels. What made him kill his entire family on a Saturday night? No one and especially his State Trooper friend, DeMarco, can believe he did it, but everything points to Thomas. The missing knife and the missing Thomas himself were strong clues but difficult to believe. Mr. Silvis keeps you guessing as we follow Thomas as he struggles with this nightmare and as he is running and hiding. We also follow State Trooper DeMarco as he questions suspects and people who knew Thomas as well as his questioning whether or not Thomas really did kill his entire family. TWO DAYS GONE has marvelous, descriptive writing that allows you to feel Thomas' physical pain as he is on the run and his emotional pain at the thought of his beautiful family being gone. Trooper DeMarco's investigation was relentless, oh so good, and impressively described. Mr. Silvis definitely knows how to tell a terrific story that has extraordinary, believable characters. This was the first book I read by Mr. Silvis, and I thoroughly enjoyed TWO DAYS GONE. The book kept spinning and spiraling into better and better as it became more frightening and more tense leaving the reader with an awesome finish. ENJOY if you read TWO DAYS GONE. 5/5 This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
