The Oasis Project by Art Adkins

Superb Mystery

The Oasis Project by Art Adkins is a murder mystery set on the east coast. A young college student is not convinced when the local police and coast guard stated it was an accident that took the lives of her parents and younger brother. Determined to find the truth behind her family’s death she has asked everyone she knows to help with little to no progress. Someone suggested that she contact a relatively new resident that just moved in, he was a retired police officer. Redundantly, the retired police officer agrees to investigate and slowly unravels the real reason behind the death of her family.

The best thing about this book is having an author that knows and understands both sides of the law enforcement point of view. This makes the story, through a protagonist point of view, more realistic than most mysteries. The book has a quick moving plot that does a masterful job at holding on to the climax until the very end. The story contains elements of mystery, suspense, comic relief and yes even a little romance. I have already told others, who enjoy mysteries they need to read this one.

I received a free copy of this book from Dorrance Publishing in exchange for my honest review of the book.
