Watch for his upcoming Historic Mystery Thriller novel, titled Strike! and Death Drop, his Murder Mystery Thriller!
Death Drop by John Klawitter is a novel that will have the reader hanging on to his every word. Church Dickens is an injured vet who has just finished his physical therapy and is still unsteady on his feet. His military training has clued him on the dangerous behavior his boss is exhibiting. Keeping ahead of his bossís aggressive attitude and another co-worker who wishes to push him out of his position, Church makes a financial decision that sends him to New Mexico. Jessie Carter struggles to keep Carters Cabins open, difficult when they rely on business from the ski resort next door. They havenít had heavy snow in a couple of years. A businessman from California is pressuring them to sell. When the Carters refuse to sell, they find unusual near-accidents happening. Church and Jessie, with Lexi an Irish wolfhound, team up to find out the mystery behind the psychopath who has them in his sights.
I found Death Drop refreshing and thrilling. John Klawitter gives enough details to draw in the reader, but not enough to give the ending away. Through an intricate weaving of characters, circumstances, and murder possible around every corner, he constructs an engaging storyline. I loved the complex web of multiple events happening within the story. The narrative pivots between the characters, and even Lexi, keeping the pace quick and punchy. My favorite character would have to be Church. He keeps his feelings real, and he acknowledges his mistakes. He has several impressive moments within this novel. His care for those under him at work was literally a lifesaver. At the completion of Churchís story, the reader may wonder if the author will write one about his twin brother. We can only hope. I'm sure you will enjoy this book as much as I have.
