Michael Meyer has once again managed to pull me into a story that totally catches me off guard in the end. The ride is fast and furious and the outcome will leave you blindsided.
James Cuffy “Cuff” has re-located to St. Croix to start his life over after an unfortunate turn of events in Dubuque. Cuff is approached by a man he has never met and is offered a job he hesitantly accepts. This decision will drastically alter his life on this beautiful Caribbean Island. For Cuff and his girlfriend Rosie life as they know it takes a treacherous turn.
The mystery and intrigue in this book is palpable. The writing flows seamlessly as the story unfolds and holds you captive. The characters of Cuff and Rosie are multi-layered and defined in such a fashion that I felt a great compassion for them. The supporting characters in the story are drawn with a fine hand and contribute to the intensity as the story progresses. The descriptive journey on the Island of St. Croix paints a striking landscape for the backdrop of the story.
I recommend Deadly Eyes to all readers for its fast paced action coupled with the mesmerizing and intense suspense.
