As one reviewer stated, Jeff asks some hard hitting questions in regards to what happens to the lives of those that are forced to live through a massacre such as a school shooting which takes place in the novel. Not only the students but how does it affect the town as a whole and everyone that lives in it?
Not to divulge too much I will say that Reunion is a wonderful page turner and never feels cliche or formulaic. I hate to use the words "slow burn" because that sometimes throws people off and makes them think that the story is boring right up until the end, but that is not the case here. From the opening chapters you can tell that this story is well thought out and is leading to somewhere. There is a twist in it (that I would love to reveal but won't dare to) that truly hit me out of left field that really changed everything (in a good way, of course, hence the 5 star rating) about what I had read previously and what my expectations were going forward.
I would recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of thrillers that are mixed in with a little bit of horror (not the gruesome kind). I am eagerly looking forward to Jeff Bennington's next book and feel that he is an author that is definitely on the rise.
