With his first venture into the literary world Bob knocks it out of the park. The author has wrote a story that keeps the reader engaged, turning page after page until you're finished and leaves you wanting more! Fast paced and twist or two, I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys reading suspense and thriller works from such authors as Dean Koontz. I'll looking forward to reading his future releases.

Wonderful book. Quick and easy read. Definite plot twist at the end (I didn't see it coming anyway). I recommend this book to everyone. Great debut novel R.E. Sargent!!!! Can't wait for the next novel!

Doms life has never been easy. Every person around him dies to mysterious circumstances. When his sister is attacked, Dom goes on the run in an attempt to find answers before the killer can find him. On the road Dom meets a woman named Jennifer who joins in his quest. Will they figure out who the killer is or will Jennifer become its next victim?

Full of suspense and plenty of twists and turns. And wow! That ending totally made the name chills worthy.

The narrator had a wide range of voices and

A good first book by this author!

This first book was engaging, and reminiscent of Dean Koontz (sometimes I forgot that I wasn't reading a Koontz book). I look forward to watching this author's talent continue to grow.

I'm a slow reader, and if a nook doesn't get me right away i won't read it. This book got me. I loved it. You think your going one way and then you go another. Suprises through the whole book. Can't wait to read your next book Bob.
Highly recommend this book to anyone. It has a bit of everything in it.

Edge of the seat drama

The story line is engaging and as it unfolded the questions began to form. Was he or wasn't he? The characters are realistic and the reader is drawn in.

This author has fast become one of my fave thriller writers! His books keep you captivated and just when you think that youve figured it out...BAM! Totally blindsided! This book is no exception...Dom has lost just about every living relative, except his older sister, Nina. When Dom gets the late night call that Nina had been viciously attacked at home, he knows that someone is out to get him. He no longer believes that everyone that hes ever loved, has died by accident. Dom decides to run, until ...more

Relative Terror was a good read by R.E. Sargent. Unfortunately for Dominick, everyone close to him has ended up dead. His last living relative, his sister, is attacked and dying. He becomes the prime suspect although hhe fears that he's next. Dom disappears in order to find the answers he needs. He is looking for who has destroyed his family and his life. I can't wait to read more by R.E. Sargent.

This story takes you on a crazy ride. It is full of ups an downs. The author did a good job with misdirection. It made it more difficult to figure things out. Also the whole Detective angle I thought was useless...actually came in pretty handy. I listened to this on audio. Andy Packard did a great job. His little additives really helped lift this story up to another level.

This is a roller coaster of a thriller that I truly enjoyed reading clear into the wee hours of the morning; and on a work day to boot! This was a terrific debut work for Mr. Sargent.
