“Therme’s debut novel is a fast-paced mystery/thriller built around family secrets and long-held grudges .”




Mortom…it’s a story of a treasure hunt set by a dead man for his cousin to follow….what’s the prize? Who knows! All Andy knows is he has four days to solve Craig’s clues, no matter what.

As well as the main story of Andy solving Craig’s puzzles, there is Kate, Andy’s sister who came to Mortom to pay her respects to her aunt, Craig’s mum. Kate isn’t too interested in the treasure hunt but she starts on her own puzzle. Are these two mysteries linked?

This book was quite addictive to read. I love puzzles so reading about someone who is trying to solve a series of clues was very enjoyable.

Erik Therme has written an intriguing mystery which is different to other books I’ve read. I don’t want to say too much as I don’t want to spoil the twists of the book.

It’s the first book I’ve read by Erik Therme and it won’t be the last!

Thank you to THE Book Club and Erik Therme for giving me this ebook in exchange for my honest review.
