A DOG BARKED, a distant siren wailed, and she noticed the sound of heavy breathing. It was near. Was it her own?

Another movement, a fleeting glimpse of a figure in a hooded jacket, and he was suddenly upon her. The echo of a scream, the flash of a long blade, and then the blood. So much blood.

The end came quickly. There was no pain this time, and no tears, as there had been the first time. She lay Read more of this blog post »

Tom Gabbay added a status update: ACCESS POINT Review by Susan Sewell/Readers' Favorite

Chills abound in the eerie novel...a thrilling and suspenseful murder mystery that you can't put down once you pick it up...cross between a Hitchcock film and a Phyllis Whitney novel. It is a scintillating story, and I highly recommend it to those who are fans of horror, suspense, and murder mysteries.
