I have read FE Feeley when he first entered the writing scene. His writing was always good…… I have to say after reading Closer……Wow has he matured!
Closer is not for the feint of heart. It is a gripping story of the past coming to end the world. Mr. Feeley has used a fantastic way of introducing the large cast of characters to us, one chapter at a time. Then he places them, intertwining them into our story so their position is not confusing or unclear to the reader.
As always Mr. Feeley, the lover of horror and paranormal sets this back drop on the east coast, Vermont, Maplewood a small town. Hayden Moore moves to Maplewood to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city to heal. It is almost a year that Hayden lost his husband to a Mafia hit to get back at Hayden.
What Hayden needs is to renovate the old house he has purchased, hiring Tommy Law to help him with jobs that are over his pay grade. Tommy is ex- Military. The first business is to get the two guest bedrooms ready for his best friend and old boss who are coming to visit and help paint!!!!
As we slowly meet the cast, Mr. Feeley introduces us to the background of the town, its history, and the local lore. I have always likened Mr. Feeley’s writing to Stephen King. It is sharp, not confusing, and gets us where he wants us to be.
Hayden and Tommy are the heart of this story, but the cast is large, each is pivotal to the story and the horror that lays beneath Lake Veronica. Mr. Feeley you have again truly impressed me. I loved it and I cannot wait for more.
