Book Description:

Helena Hollister was a New York City gold digger who latched onto her father-in-law’s fortune by seducing a Hobbs Creek 24 yr old who suffered from motor slowness. Helena got away with murder and the money, while two backwoods lawmen failed to unravel the mystery of who killed Elmer Kane. The case went unsolved from 1958 until early in the cyberspace age, when Helena Hollister surfaced in Right Bank, Paris as Anna Ward.

I have been reading Kyle Keyes’ Quantum Roots books and I have to say, he’s a pretty good storyteller. Now this one is not a Q.R. novel but it also features his signature character Jeremy Wade. The reason why I have compared this to THE Sidney Sheldon of decades ago is because their stories mirror in terms of mystery, murder, and a beautiful but deadly female character who is connected to a bunch of male friends and enemies. It is the story of a couple by the names of Rodney and Helena Hollister who are rich (Rodney that is) and also a distinctive Black police detective who goes on to solve the biggest and hardest case of their hometown. But unfortunately, it just so happens that the husband gets landed in jail while Helena, surprisingly, goes free. But not for long, because Emmett Walker (the Black dude) soon puts the pieces of the puzzle together and comes to the conclusion (and the truth) that Helena and her partner in crime, Abel Johnson, did have something to do with the death of a seemingly disabled guy called Elmer Kane with whom Helena had been caught by Rodney being naked with at a bar. I found this novel to be very brilliantly done. There is humor and that keeps the reader (like me) interested in it even more. There are no boring moments, every event flows so well. I did not like Helena Hollister one bit and I wanted to see her behind bars simply because she was cunning and a temptress. She has a dangerous mind and it got her, her fortune and her dream. The sad thing about this book though is that her innocent husband did not fare well and that he was jailed for a crime he had nothing to do with. Another thing about this book that was interesting was the genius mind of Emmett Walker. He was the one who prevailed in his detective work, who connected the pieces of the puzzling crime with the help of his Caucasian police partners. The novel’s formula is however similar to all other mystery stories in which the spouse of the wrongfully convicted is the real criminal. As a closure, Kyle Keyes is a must-read author and you should read this book to find out for yourself what I was talking about above. If you aren’t familiar with Sidney Sheldon, then you are missing out. I recommend this pretty novel (the front cover is so romance novel-like) to those who are craving a book with all the spicy elements of small-town murder and a murderous witch who escapes prosecution for a long time. The book is an easy read so anyone from a teenager in high school to the aged reader can devour it in two days or even one. One last thing I should tell you about this book is that it’s got zero sexual content so you should be good to go. Later!

Kyle Keyes (Author)

Kyle Keyes /Rapid Reads presents MATCHING CONFIGURATIONS / Quantum Roots III, based on a belief that any quark assembly that spins through worm holes, must format with a matching configuration, triggered from this side of a time wall. Quantum Roots is based on evidence that quarks have anti-quarks, which serve as roots for fermion energy bits, and that flavors under spin produce quarks. When Olan Chapman’s life cycle ends, his quarks rejoin these anti-quarks on the “other side,” where they await Chapman’s next adventure. In this third Quantum Roots novel, the idea of Matching Configurations, replaces “string” and “pocket” theories as a method to segregate said quarks. This is done by a trigger that throws up a wormhole design on Einstein/Rosen’s two dimensional time wall that would format with Chapman’s personal energy bits. Should this “quantum space”-to-“space/time” theory pan out, it could explain certain paranormal activities, as well as standard evolutionary patterns already in progress. “Rapid Reads” is a Kyle Keyes feature that keeps readers in step with today’s high gear society.
