BECKON by Tom Pawlik is a book that is a little hard to describe. The book is spine tingling, horrifying, weird and unexpected. To quote his webpage it is an “edge-of-your-seat thriller”.
It is a story of a town “Beckon” that is inhabited by an unusual group of people, to say the least. A man, Jack Kendrick, a woman police officer, Elina Gutierrez, who are there looking for answers about loved ones, and George Wilcox who has been enticed there seeking a cure for his wife’s Alzheimer’s. Their stories all converge with the town’s people and the leader, Vale, with lots of bizarre twists and turns. I found myself wanting to put it down because it was almost too hard to continue, while at the same time having to know what is going to happen next and the outcome.
Ultimately the hope of Christ leads them all to a place of strength and redemption. I would recommend it. Overall it is a good book, especially if you like edge of your seat thrillers.
