In the aftermath of investigating the D.C. sniper case, detective Vance Graegan is burned out. Desperate to save his marriage, he retires after twenty years in the force, giving up a lot of benefits, to let his wife have her dream, a deli shop in sunny California. They have the money saved to start the business, and everything is looking great.

Then the trouble starts. The mover refuses to deliver their stuff unless Vance pays them an additional $8,000. Vance refuses, knowing it’s a scam, but everyday, the bill goes up by a thousand dollars. And then the threats start. And soon loosing their belongings is the least of his problems.

POSSESSION is the latest suspense release by acclaimed author Rene Gutteridge. I’ve loved most all her books, and I was hooked by POSSESSION even when it became too scary to read. I couldn’t put the book down; I had to see what happened next, to see how Vance and Lindy would work through the devastation that has torn apart their lives.

If you are looking for a good suspense, then be sure to pick up POSSESSION. I thought the bad guy was pretty cut and dried, but it soon became apparent that things are not at all as they seemed. If you’re a “chicken” like me, and don’t like scary books, you might not want to read this. If you try to read it, make sure it’s in a well lit room! If you love suspense, the scarier the better, then this book is for you. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $12.99. 390 pages.
