On the coldest night of the year, Stephen Porter is pulled from a restless sleep by a midnight phone call. His 17-year-old daughter Sara is stranded in a blizzard near the top of a mountain beyond their suburban home. She's terrified and unable to stop crying as she begs him to come to her rescue.

Unfortunately Stephen went to bed just an hour before after a night of binge drinking. With his blurred vision and unsteady balance he knows it’s dangerously irresponsible to get behind the wheel. But he heads out into the snowstorm to bring Sara home.

High school teacher Kieran O’Shea is also behind the wheel, searching for his autistic younger brother Aidan, who is wandering aimlessly through the storm on that same mountain. Kieran is also terrified—of the voices in his mind, of the possibility that Aidan will be taken from him, and of the certainty that he will soon be arrested for murdering three women.

In a matter of minutes Stephen will encounter Kieran and drive headlong into a collision that will force him to unlock the secret of his wife’s death, avoid prosecution, and protect his children from violence that hits all too close to home.

Fatal OptionIf you think you can dissect a thriller and beat the author to the finish, you need to pick up FATAL OPTION by Chris Beakey! If you have never read a dark thriller, you need to pick up FATAL OPTION by Chris Beakey! Dark, chaotic and rich with web-like plot twists, this is truly edge of your seat reading that will have your guts churning and your knuckles clenched.

Color me impressed. On one of the worst winter nights of the year, Stephen is awakened form his drunken sleep by the terrified voice of his teenage daughter, stranded on a back road, far from where she said she would be. Not fit to drive, but determined to help his daughter, the dangerous roads are deadly to drive on and even deadlier to walk on. What happens next will send one man into the hell of fear, regret and shame as he becomes a murderer and his daughter becomes the puppet to a twisted man she thinks she’s in love with when she could actually become his next victim. A child is dead, and his brother loses his tentative hold on reality and someone has to pay.
Chris Beakey’s tale is taut, dark and sinister from the first page to the last. Magnetic, dynamic and extremely well-written, Suspense has a new artist on the block and a bold style to mesmerize readers!

I received an ARC edition from Post Hill Press in exchange for my honest review.
