Drummer Boy by Scott Nicholson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I have not read any of the Littlefield series but what attracted me to this book was the synopsis! The book has a very good premise, interesting plot, and I thought it would be an awesome read...HOWEVER the book definitely disappointed me. First of all to be a Sheriff Frank Littlefield book, there was very little in the book that involved or mentioned the sheriff and what little was mentioned did not show him as an unwitting hero, it showed him as a sorry, sad, shell of a man with very little purpose in the town!
I found the book very disjointed! Nothing flowed together. Someone wound up in a hospital and was never mentioned again, a cop went out to investigate and was never mentioned again, ghost were floating and shooting guns all over town but it was as if no one really cared, there were times when things were happening and I could not figure out if it was the same day, night time, or a different day. The story jumped from character to character with little connection or follow up. The character building was weak and the story line very muddled.
This is a book with possibilities but no follow through. Even the supposed "Ghosts" were not fully explained, the history and outcome fell flat.
This book left me scratching my head and wondering why I wasted 5 days of my life reading it.Drummer Boy
