R. M. Clark's debut adult novel, Center Point, is a charming mystery embroiled in history. Dennis Kozma is a charming young man, given a quest by his dead father to clear his name. Soon, it becomes apparent that there is more to the story than just his father's good name.

The secondary characters are both charming and diabolical. Dennis' stepfather, Stan, particularly, is a piece of work.

Clark's voice is wonderful and make the story a very fast read. If I had one complaint, it was that in areas t

I am very happy to have been given a chance to read Center Point by R.M. Clark! I love National Treasure and Indiana Jones and stories searching to uncover historical mysteries. Center Point was different than the typical quest for truth. The main character, Dennis, is a slacker/professional student who, on his 25th birthday, is given a mysterious package from his late father containing a list of names, along with drawings of Native American artifacts and a portrait of a legendary local warrior ...more

Full book review on my blog.

Center Point is the debut ‘grown up’ novel of the author R. M. Clark. I was given an eBook copy by the author with the request to read and review. I do love adventure novels, so I took it with me on my holidays abroad to read.

The story evolves around Dennis Kozma, who is basically wasting his time, life and his father’s money on college education, not really knowing what to do with his life and not really comes, he gets a visit from one of his dad’s friends, who gives

Dennis (Koz) Kozma was celebrating his 25th birthday at O’Reardon’s sports bar with his two best friends, Jed and Tom. Gene Clausen introduced himself as Norm Kozma’s attorney. Norm was Dennis’ father who had passed away fifteen years prior. Clausen had been instructed to present a package to Dennis on this 25th birthday. The package contained an old map of the town with cemetery plots shaded in; a charcoal drawing of Native American Komaket; drawings of a necklace and staff; and a photocopy of ...more

Even though he’s been dead for fifteen years, Dennis Kozma’s father comes back into his life in the form of some papers he’s left for his son to open on his twenty-fifth birthday. Along with his best friends, Tom and Jed, and his Uncle Russell, Dennis sets out to uncover the mystery of the Native American legend, Komaket, and to clear his father’s name of embezzlement charges.

It was intriguing to follow the mystery from Dennis’ point of view, how the clues were worked through, where the

The writing for this book was really well done. It was easy to follow the story and there weren't a bunch of stumbling points. If you didn't understand something than it was likely to be explained. The only thing that bothered me in the book is how the drawing filled itself in and then disappeared. I sort of think I understand the explanation but still it was slightly confusing to me.

However Dennis was a great character. The "professional student" he seems almost afraid to finish his education

I had no idea what I was expecting from this book (maybe a National Treasure sort of vibe) but the book ended up being more of a Wicker Man type of book. Holy plot twists, Batman. I am so glad I stuck with it because it turned out to be a really good read. When I reached the second half of the book... I could not put it down. At all.

The main character is trying to put together a crazy puzzle (names, a map, and a portrait of a Native American warrior) his father gave to him on his 25th birthday (
