TITLE : CONFESSIONS ABOUT COLTON
AUTHOR : OLIVIA HARVARD
GENRE : MYSTERY
Hello guys! For this month, my pick is, ‘Confessions about Colton’, which is a thriller story. This story is one of the few mystery stories that kept me in the edge of the seat, from the start to the time I completed it.
The story opens up right in the middle of the strange plot, where Elliott Parker grieves for the death of his best friend, Colton. There was always a lot of mystery surrounding Colton, like the time he disappeared some time back and no one could find out where he was, but he came back without giving so much as an explanation. But this time, he was gone, for good.
During the memorial service for his friend, Elliott gets a letter from the murderer of Colton, stating the reason for his murder will be revealed if he would follow some things he mentioned in the letter and search for the next clue to the letter.
Elliott was, at first, doubtful to take it up or not, but his curiosity to know the reason for his friend’s death got the better of him and he started searching for clues and soon one led to an other, and he was baffled by the things he started learning about Colton, that, at one point, he felt like he never knew anything about his best friend.
The things which were revealed by the clues, exposed a different side of his friend and also some details about what he did during his first disappearance.
And in comes Colton’s girlfriend and Elliott’s sister into the plot and the mystery kept growing till the very end.
The climax was the most powerful one of all. The twist in the end was just so unexpected and the plot was handled well.
Kudos to the author for writing such a gripping tale and revealing things only what the readers needed to know in the beginning and directing the readers towards one thought and opening out an entirely different thing in the end. ☺
