Two Days Gone by Randall Silvis

The perfect family. The perfect house. The perfect life. All gone now.

What could cause a man, when all the stars of fortune are shining upon him, to suddenly snap and destroy everything he has built? This is the question that haunts Sergeant Ryan DeMarco after the wife and children of beloved college professor and bestselling author Thomas Huston are found slaughtered in their home. Huston himself has disappeared and so is immediately cast as the prime suspect.

DeMarco knows—or thinks he knows—that Huston couldn’t have been capable of murdering his family. But if Huston is innocent, why is he on the run? And does the half-finished manuscript he left behind contain clues to the mystery of his family’s killer?

A masterful new thriller by acclaimed author Randall Silvis, Two Days Gone is a taut, suspenseful story that will break your heart as much as it will haunt your dreams.

I stumbled across Two Days Gone because it was on sale through Barnes and Noble. I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I’ve read a lot of suspense and thriller novels, so it’s hard to find new books that really stand out from the others. Two Days Gone did just that. Certain parts gripped my gut, certain parts gripped my mind, and other parts gripped my heart leaving me close to tears. The unfolding of the story captivated me and kept me wanting to know more. The characters were so well thought out. The dialogue between the detective & sergeant were so funny that their interactions broke up some of the heaviness from certain dark parts of the story. Randall Silvis is a brilliant author and he’s gained a new fan.
