BOOK REVIEW: Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan

I have never read a book by Andrew Klaven before, but I noticed that he wrote the novel, True Crime, that was turned into a Clint Eastwood movie. The last few novels I have read we're disappointing; it has been a long time since i have read one of those books that you just cannot put down. I was excited to try an author that was new to me and has been proven successful. When I received, Crazy Dangerous, I was not disappointed.  From the beginning of this novel until the end it was hard to put down.

Crazy dangerous is a novel about a 16 year old pastors kid named Sam. As a typical teenager struggling with identity, Sam is faced with many difficult situations that seem to get him into more trouble and even more difficult situations. He then encounters a girl his age named Jennifer.  Jennifer has demonic hallucinations in which Sam finds himself getting directly involved.  Are these the hallucinations of a schizophrenic? Or are they a foreshadowing of events that lead to tragedy. The writing is fabulous, its an easy read. The book has twists, turns and filled with mystery that will have you not wanting to put the book down.

 I am now an Andrew Klaven fan and I am looking forward to picking up more of his books.

I recieved this book free from Thomas Nelson's program for my honest review
