Imagine being a writer who writes bone chilling thrillers with a crazy murder. A murderer that is hard to catch, if caught at all. That's where this story takes readers. Ken Simmons writes a book. A killer who haunts him all the time. The local authorities are having trouble with the crimes and ask Ken to help.

What a roller coaster ride! Half the time I was reading it, all I could think was, OMG!, OMG!, OMG! Dark Ties is dark, disturbing, and flat out creepy. This book isn't for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. If you like stories about serial killers with a twist, you won't want to miss this one. Just don't read it before bedtime. 18+ for graphic violence and language. ...more

An outstanding well written book. A story with enough plot twists you just have to read it to see them all. I Loved it!

I liked the book. It reminded in places of Stephen King's Dark Half. The resemblance came to mind in several spots. ...more

This book is going to give me nightmares!

Wow! I couldn't put this book down! Very well written, it felt like I was watching a movie! Cory Rivers is one evil bastard! Maybe the author will write a prequel to this book... Terror in Suburbia! Awesome book!!!
