Jerry Hanel brings his imagination and terror to Western Oklahoma, my former stomping ground with his new book, Fort Reiley A tabloid reporter trying to make a buck heads to the small town of Fort Reiley looking to uncover some secrets But what he discovers leaves him fighting for his life An excellent and fun read Highly recommended Fast paced I couldn t put it down So grab a cup of tea and a blanket and settle in for a treat Great bookI thought this book was really well done While I personally am not religious the parts of faith in the book weren t overbearing and they showed what drive the character. Unusual story..could not stop reading it..had to know how it would end. Good fast paced story.I enjoyed this book very much It was a unique tale, not quite like anything else I have read I liked the characters as a whole, though Tara was annoying from time to time I m not one for the whole Pollyanna mindset Editing was good, which sadly is unusual in a free book No sex or bad language, so anyone can read this.
