THICK FOG IN PACHECO PASS                                5 STARS
A Charlie Caldwell Novel  Vol. 1
by R.P. McCabe

Who Really Murdered Miranda DeCosta?


Miranda DeCosta has been murdered. Death, as Charlie Caldwell has so cruelly learned, cheats one out of any opportunity to set life on the correct path. Charlie has come to Divina, the tiny central California town where he grew up, bent on confronting Miranda over the event that defined and destroyed every romantic relationship he has ever entertained. Questions about Miranda’s unraveling life and violent murder gradually invade Charlie’s consciousness. Bits and pieces of seemingly insignificant information begin to nag at him causing him to question whether the man locked behind bars and charged with her murder is, in fact, the real killer. Become enthralled while Charlie takes his first baby-steps toward reinventing himself, solves the question of who really murdered Miranda DeCosta and discovers another unforgettable woman who will reshape his life. Author R.P. McCabe, with his debut novel Betrayed still garnering strong reviews and attention, offers his new novel, Thick Fog In Pacheco Pass. This is another edge-of-your-seat "whodunit" that will keep you guessing to the very end.

This book, THICK FOG, was one great read. I couldn't put it down. It was a page turner, edge of the seat read.  The author took a small town and made you feel like you knew these people.  Maybe we have known people like the characters. Small towns are where everybody knows everything about everybody. His descriptions of the scenery and characters, you could just see them like they were real. It was like you knew what the characters were dealing with and their emotions. The book has a lot of twists and turns. Once you thought you had it figured out, you turn the page and you're confused again.  You will be surprised time and time again.  There's a lot going on in this book, but the author kept it together so you didn't get over-whelmed.  The suspense will you on the edge of your chair. Not only was there suspense but lots and lots of romance.  This was not only a murder mystery but a love story. I thought the author merged the two quite well.  I just don;'t have enough good things to say about this book.  Words just can;'t convey how good it is.  I would recommend this book to everyone. Just beware, it will keep you guessing and you may not be able to put the book down.  A definite keeper.   What a surprise ending. Can you discover who killed Miranda?

I would give this book a solid 5 STARS.

I was given a complimentary copy of THICK FOG IN PACHECO PASS by the author, R.P. McCabe for this unbiased review.

Thank you Mr. McCabe for the wonderful read.  Can't wait for the next book, SLAUGHTER.
