THE FEAR FACTOR
This is a story about an urban legend, the hosts of a supernatural TV show, and the tragedy that befalls them. It will hold you in suspense the whole time as you try to figure out the mystery…although you’ll only know the answer at the end.
The fascinating thing about this story is that it’s told completely through blog posts and newspaper articles, meaning we get all the information indirectly, which intensifies the mystery we’re trying to solve the whole time.
How do these people die? Why do they die the same time every year? Who is Jackie Taylor?
This whole thing is both creepy and fascinating. If you’re looking for a short, interesting mystery with a supernatural twist to sink your teeth into, I cannot recommend this book enough. It goes very fast and doesn’t let you go the whole time.
ps Bonus points for the LGBT element, even though the focus is not on it.
