ARC Review: Vision by Lisa Amowitz
Author: Lisa Amowitz
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: The light is darker than you think…
High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.
When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.
Review: I received an ARC copy of this book free from the author at BEA 2014 in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second novel by LIsa Amowitz that I have had the pleasure of reading and I liked it a smidgen better than Breaking Glass. I did find Vision a bit slow at the beginning, only because I'm not a fisher and that's how the story starts off. The read did quickly pickup for me and I was scared to let my dog outside for fear of the serial killer. I thought I had it all figured out and then there was that twist that I was not expecting. I really give props to Amowitz because she writes from male POVs and she does it flawlessly. The way this novel ends leads me to believe/ hope that there may be a second novel.
Vision was a very entertaining read with shocking twists. I would recommend it to readers who love murder mysteries. I can't wait to read more by this author.
