Chatroom with a View

BYGlenn Maynard

Lizzie Borden took an axe . . .

And so goes the song depicting the 1892 axe murders of her father and step-mother. Research indicates that a killer gene could be passed down through generations of family members, and evidence begins with Lizzie’s ancestor who murdered his mother in 1673.

Chatroom with a View opens with a bone-chilling episode, and what’s left of Troy Cullen’s dysfunctional family keeps him even further from the normal integration with society. Troy’s life further unravels when his ex-girlfriend, Veronica, announces that she is pregnant. Troy loses control and plots to do unto others as they have done unto him.

When Veronica digs into his family’s past, she exposes this killer gene; she must try to balance her obsession for a family with shielding herself and their baby from evil.

But Troy has his own agenda, resulting in an epic showdown.

I read this book from beginning to end, a few times reviewing the previous chapter, just to make sure I didn't miss anything. A page-turner, filled with psychological action! I will always be honored to read Maynard's work, and this is no exception. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author.
