I have to be honest here. I just couldn’t get into the story right at first and read some others instead and have only come back to it this past week.
Man…am I glad that I did. Dangerous Ground builds slow like—I hate to say Stephen King—but that’s what I’m thinking here? Not a Salem’s Lot or the like, but more like Needful Things or Mr. Mercedes. Rutter gives us plenty of time to get to know the characters in the story and kind of get our relationship on, if you will. Although I’ve never traveled to that part of the country, I somehow feel like I’ve been there?
Another indie that comes to mind is BP Broome and his World Gone Gray or Signal Fire…not a bunch of fantasy bullshit to sort through, but an honest small town, crime story with believable character development that—I anyway—can get into.
I’m only halfway through Dangerous Ground, so I won’t say more, but I do recommend that you find this one and give this indie writer a shot. I don’t think that you’ll be disappointed with this one. I’m sure not.
If you do…drop me a line and let me know what you think or if you have read this one, let us know.
Oh yeah, don’t forget to leave an honest review. You’ll never know how much you are helping an indie writer with that small donation of your time.
