Skeleton Key By Jeff LaFerney
After a tragic train wreck, Depot co-owner, Adrian Payne disappears. Seven years later, Clay Thomas meets Payne's beautiful wife and determines to help her by using his mind powers to solve the mystery of Payne's disappearance. With the help of Clay's son, Tanner, the local chief of police, and Adrian Payne's ghost, Clay discovers the body, catapulting the investigators into a mystery-a mystery with more questions than answers. If there was foul play, why do the coroner and Adrian's ghost disagree? If there wasn't foul play, why do all the suspects appear to be guilty? A twisted plot, full of surprises and interesting characters is the result. Lessons of faith, friendship, personal growth, and peace give meaning to a one-of-a-kind mystery.
I was given this book from the author to give an honest review.
I truly enjoyed reading the Skeleton Key, it was a mystery type book with mind reading, ghosts, telekinesis, and hypnosis all pulled into one, with a little bit of romance added to the mix.
Skeleton Key is about a man and his son. Clay and Tanner. Clay has lost his wife in which she was murdered and he has not really gotten over her death. Tanner is a college student who is a very likable character and plays college basketball. They both have powers which they seem to have a new power in this book. Clay is called upon by a friend to help another friend with the mysterious disappearance of her husband 7 years ago, not only to help her but to help himself to get over the death of his wife. Clay learns to love again and to trust others. Clay, Tanner, and Chief Hopper all work together to solve this murder and it has twist and turns and leave you wondering who dun-it.
My favotie part in this whole book and it kept me laughing was when Jeff LaFerney decided to write in a midget or a little person as they like to be called. When Erika gave the description of Jasper (little person) kicking his self in the head I was actually imagining it happening. I could do nothing but laugh, Jasper's temper and him riding his little bike kept bringing on a fit of giggles with me.
Skeleton Key has you from the first page, and will have you until the end. With this suspense-murder mystery on top of it being faith-based you are in for a ride.
