Book Review - Johnson Road by Clayton E Spriggs

Book Review
Johnson Road
A Novel by Clayton E Spriggs

Book Description
"Hiding in plain sight, a predator stalks its prey…"

When Purvis Johnson fell on hard times, he agreed to sell most of his land to a real-estate developer. Before long, the dirt road that once served as his make-shift driveway became a paved street. Newly constructed houses sprung up on both sides. Families moved in. The quiet neighborhood became the perfect place to raise a family.

Meet Jake and Mary Bickman and their two sons, the first to move into their new home. Soon, Thomas and Gladys Jenkins buy the house across the street and introduce a beautiful baby girl to the world. The wealthy Peterson couple and their two children build the big house near the end of the block, right next door to the tiny shack where the Johnsons still reside. One by one, tragedy will strike them all.

Welcome to Peterson County, Alabama, mid-twentieth century Americana; a quaint, rural community on its journey to becoming the suburban utopia promised by the American Dream. By the time the dreamers realize they are trapped inside a nightmare, it’s too late.

Something has gone terribly wrong inside the dream – something evil – something on Johnson Road.

Hubbie's Book Review
Everyone who likes murder mystery and a book which will keep you guessing until the end, then this is the novel for you. The story revolves around the building of a new housing estate on Johnson Road.  The author brings to life the residents and occupants along with their family secrets and hidden agendas.

When a young girl goes missing it brings the local sheriff and state police together and in their investigations it opens a can of worms in every household unlocking horrors and nightmares they could not envisage.

This novel had me totally engrossed from page 1, which I could read time and time again.  The descriptions of the families and what happens behind closed doors is what makes this book a must read. When you think you have figured out what has happened the author throws a spanner in the works and you have to re think your ideas.

An absolute gem of a read and I am now eagerly awaiting the authors next novel BILLY.

  3. This sounds like a book I would love--I love when it is not easy to figure it out and there a lot of twists and turns that keep you guessing!

  4. This sounds like any family's worst nightmare! When "home" turns to "horror" who knows hat will happen next!
