Marble Eyes Review


Raymond Evers father died of a heart attack when Raymond was eleven years old. After a year of struggling to earn an income and care for her son, his mother decided to turn young Raymondís care over to his paternal grandfather. John Evers was a large man, and a violent one. During his time there, Raymond learned much about the gruesome enjoyment of killing and torture. As soon as he could, Raymond took control of his own life.

Andrew Jackson, aka Bear, was an FBI agent in the Phoenix, Arizona field office. He and his fellow officers were placed on a routine administrative leave following a confrontation with bank robbers. Because the review could take several weeks, Bear decided to take a vacation. He headed to the Fort Mojave Indian Reservation to visit his mother and several old friends of his.

In the meantime, now that Raymond was free of his grandfather he headed out on a road trip that took him from his Illinois home to the western regions of the United States. Bearís decision to visit family and friends, and Raymondís decision to get free of his grandfather and head west, put two polar opposite men on a collision course that could only be seen as destiny.

Marble Eyes was written by Hildred L. Kennett, who spent thirty years in law enforcement and later as an elementary teacher. Along the way he decided to write a novel. Marble Eyes took me by surprise. When I first started reading the story, I thought it was just another suspense mystery. The further I read, the more intrigued I became.

Mr. Kennett has written a compelling thriller that takes a hard look at the development of a killer from childhood. Although the topic is heavy, the story is laced with an intriguing plot throughout the book. The real enjoyments in reading this book, however, are to see how the two men can start out several states away from one another and end up in a battle for survival.

From the beginning I could not put this book down. I ended up reading Marble Eyes in one day. If you enjoy a good psychological thriller, reading about a life that caused a young boy to become a killer, and how he grew from an abused child to a thrill-seeking murderer, this is the book for you.

A special thank you goes to the author for providing a copy of Marble Eyes for our review. If you are interested in obtaining your own copy, it is available at Amazon.com.
