Legacy of Fear

Legacy of Fear Legacy of Fear by A.J. McCarthy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis
What dark secret is hidden in her past? What evil has been handed down through the generations?
Emily Burton found happiness in a small, picturesque town on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Her sense of peace and security is shattered when she’s brutally attacked, and an innocent person is murdered. The authorities believe the incident is random, until Emily becomes the target of further violence and threats.
With the help of her enigmatic neighbor, she uncovers an eerily similar crime that dates back sixty years. Could there be a connection between the two attacks? Did malevolence stretch its deadly arm across generations?
Emily is convinced there’s a link, but she needs to find it before it finds her.


                                     Book Review
Initially, I was pulled in with this story. The main character was attacked and the hunt was on for the culprit. The primaries had solid chemistry. I enjoyed listening to Dustin and Emily's conversations because I wanted them to just accept the fact that they probably belonged together.
The story flowed well and stayed true to its genre. I kept up with the characters and had a couple of suspects lined up in my head while listening. The events that initially took place pulled me in but with the repetitive events thereafter would lead a normal person to believe they were being targeted and Emily seemed oblivious. There were a couple of lines repeated within the same paragraph and that can be a little annoying, but that could just be me.
I connected on some level with Emily because she liked her alone time in the beginning, and I like my alone time as well.
One moment that stood out to me was when the attacker was finally revealed, I had this character on my mental list, but not that far up on the list. It was a good reveal.
The audio production was great! Everything was clear without any interruption or noise. The one thing that kept it from being a 5 star listen was the narrator. His monotone delivery was not the best for this story. All in all, I would recommend this book to fellow mystery/suspense readers. Please secure a copy and support the author by leaving a review.
