Review: Murder Comes by Mail
`Murder Comes by Mail` is a fictional mystery/suspense/thriller book written by author A. H. Gabhart. She is the author of many books including `Murder at the Courthouse`. Ann grew up in a small rural town much like the town in this book.
The setting for this book is `Hidden Springs`. The book begins at a local Hidden Springs bridge. A man going by the name of Jack wants to commit suicide, until the towns deputy rescues him.
However Jack left the deputy with a warning that he would be sorry he saved him. Mail begins to show up with pictures of the deceased.
Hidden Springs reminds me of a Mayberry-type town, until evil comes to visit. I like mystery/suspense books, but this book is more like a depressing, creepy thriller. It spooked me as I read it. There are things happening that are too close for comfort. The characters in this book are well-portrayed.
The detectives believe they know who the suspect is they just can't find him. As more characters are victimized the creepier it gets. I do not plan to put this on my re-read pile. This is one book I am having a hard time finishing.
