Trevor by S. Hilbre Thomson

 


About the Book:

Unable to escape the tragedies of his past, Matt Stone heads North, leaving behind the memory of his dead wife and son. His journey takes a turn when he comes across young Trevor Reed, his late son's doppelg√§nger. Blinded by the resemblance, and already unable to cope with what he’s already lost, Matt becomes obsessed with Trevor and begins stalking him.

Concerned about her son’s continued reports of ‘the Badman’ watching him, Trevor's parents enlist the help of the local authorities to keep him safe. Despite the involvement of local and national law enforcement and eventually, an enthusiastic reporter, Trevor disappears. The ensuing investigation results in a chase starting in the suburbs of Boston to an island on a New Hampshire lake.

Will their efforts to find Matt and Trevor be enough? Or will they be too late?

Our Review: In this powerful story of tragedy and loss, debut author, S. Hilbre Thomson, demonstrates the effects of viscous crime on one man and the perfect storm created by a system-wide failure to adequately address the issues of the varied aftereffects suffered by survivors. Thomson has done an exceptional job of creating a sympathetic antagonist, leaving the reader to ask how and why something so horrendous could happen to one person who then simply falls through the cracks.

Based on a scale of 1-5, Trevor deserves a 4.
