A cousin that you barely know has recently passed and has named you the sole heir of their estate. You’re entitled to an empty bank account and a house that is severely lacking in…well everything. You have one week to step foot inside the house or you get nothing.
This is what Andy Crowl has come to know. Once he’s in the small town of Mortom, Andy is more confused than ever. His deceased cousin has left him a series of clues and beckons him to start a game of uncovering a hidden treasure. However, upon finding the first few clues, Andy wonders if he’s being made a fool. Something is amiss but how far is Andy willing to go to find the truth?
I had no idea what I was jumping into when I agreed to read “Mortom”. There was an endless amount of possibilities. Too often I’ve seen books like this one that try so hard to link clues together and come up empty handed. Erik Therme has created a vivid story of one man’s desperation and another man’s lunacy. The clues that are left for Andy are that of utter ingenuity. Therme is extremely clever in his ability to tie the clues together seamlessly. “Mortom” is easy to read and rather quick paced. I didn’t want to put this book down until I had answers. Although, when the ending came, there were a few things left to the reader’s imagination. I can guarantee I’ll be thinking of this story for some time to come.
Thank you to the author for providing me with a copy of Mortom in exchange for an honest review.
