Peeper, by Paul Chandler

Through a mutual virtual friend, I was introduced to the author, Paul Chandler. He was kind enough to offer to send me a copy of his new book, Peeper, if I would promise to post a review of the novel. I readily agreed. I am so glad I did, because I loved Peeper. I was engaged by the story from page one and found myself wondering how this suspense thriller would end right up to the climax on page 234! The book is well crafted and moves a good pace. The characters are developed in such a way as to have the reader pulling for them to succeed or fail, depending on their role in the story. The premise of the book is that a man who can “peep” into anyone’s thoughts of any with whom he had an encounter. He had been using his skills to make a lot of money from corporate raiders. When an unexpected consequence takes place, Andrew, the peeper, has to deal with his conscience and goes to great lengths to make restitution, even jeopardizing himself and his future. The kind of conflicts that Andrew faces are not unique to him, we all have to wrestle with decisions and responsibilities that come with opportunities that present themselves. We have to decide what kind of citizens we will be. His dilemma helps us crystallize our own standards. If you love a good page turner, I suggest you obtain a copy of Peeper, by Paul Chandler, published by iUniverse, inc. I can’t read your mind; by I don’t believe you will be sorry.

I like a good book and a suspense book is a good thing to read. My only problem is when I get too engrossed in a book, I forget everything else and I sometimes do not eat until I finish the book which can take several hours. cheers!!!
