Review: Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa


About the book:
Fourteen miles east of Peachtree, Alabama, a secret is hidden. 
The secret's name is Annabel Lee. 

She doesn't know why her enigmatic uncle has stowed her deep underground in a military-style bunker. He's left her with a few German words, a barely controlled guard dog, and a single command: "Don't open that door for anybody, you got it? Not even me."

Miles away in Atlanta, private investigator Trudi Coffey is visited by a mysterious older man calling himself Dr. Smith. He's been trailing a man for a decade--a man she met through her ex-partner Samuel Hill--and the trail has led him to her office. The last thing Trudi wants to do is to contact Samuel. But it will take both of them to unravel this mystery--before it's too late.

My thoughts:

Annabel Lee is the first book I've read by this author and it was so good!!! While it took me a while to read, I blame myself for that and not the story; because once I made time for it, I flew through the pages -- the story thoroughly captured my attention.

The suspense gets very intense (which I loved!) in Annabel Lee and there are some pretty violent scenes, so just a warning if you have a weaker stomach when it comes to violence in books.

I loved the characters. All of them were great, especially The Mute. I loved the chemistry between Trudi and Samuel and can't wait until the next book, The Raven, is released, just so I can see what happens next with them. 

All in all, I loved this book! The mystery was not what I expected and really kept me guessing and in suspense. I recommend it if you enjoy suspense/thrillers.
