KEEP THIS TO YOURSELF, by Tom Ryan, Albert Witman & Co.


It’s been a year since the Catalog Killer terrorized the sleepy seaside town of Camera Cove, killing four people before disappearing without a trace. Like everyone else in town, eighteen-year-old Mac Bell is trying to put that horrible summer behind him—easier said than done since Mac’s best friend Connor was the murderer’s final victim. But when he finds a cryptic message from Connor, he’s drawn back into the search for the killer—who might not have been a random drifter after all. Now nobody—friends, neighbors, or even the sexy stranger with his own connection to the case—is beyond suspicion. Sensing that someone is following his every move, Mac struggles to come to terms with his true feelings towards Connor while scrambling to uncover the truth.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is an LGBT thriller for young adults.

Tom Ryan has a hypnotic style to his writing that I fell for.  He can weave you into the story with a gentle, yet precise and purposeful voice that keeps you immersed in the details while propelling you quickly to the conclusive end. His characters are relatable and flawed, while complicated and complete. You want to believe in them, see them succeed and make it to their goals.

This is my first Ryan Book, but I look forward to seeing what he’ll write next.
