I received this book from Tyndale Publishing for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book.
Some things weren’t meant to be discovered. Three people are each drawn to the small town of Beckon, Wyoming. A young anthropologist researches a Native American legend and makes a terrifying discovery. An ex-cop investigating her cousin’s disappearance finds herself in grave peril. And an aging businessman is lured by the promise of a miracle. One by one they discover the town’s ghastly secret. The only question is . . . will any of them make it out alive?
Beckon is the first novel by Tom Pawlik I have read and WOW. This novel is awesome. I found myself unable to put it down. Beckon is a town in Wyoming, as you enter town the sign says: Welcome to Beckon you are not here by chance. Three different people come to Beckon for different reasons but all are fighting to stay alive. In the town of Beckon there is said to be an ancient Indian tribe living in the mountains that have been there for thousands of years. Also it is believed that this tribe has a remedy that not only heals anything but reverses aging and gives a person the ability to live forever. Tom Pawlik weaves an awesome tale that is well researched about many things including archeology, health issues, Indian customs, and different religious beliefs including human sacrifice. The characters in this novel are well written and real people. As I read this story I could picture all of the people and places described. I felt like I was there watching it. This story is fast paced suspense/thriller story that keeps you guessing until the end. I found myself totally engrossed in this story. I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction suspense/thriller. Tom Pawlik's Beckon will not disappoint. I look forward to reading more of his novels.
