Andrew Gross is best known for his 5 best selling novels co-written with James Patterson, but he also is gaining a reputation internationally with his ability to weave a highly developed thriller on his own.
His novel The Dark Tide was nominated for Best Thriller of the Year by the International Thriller Writers.
The difference in his new mystery/thriller, Eyes Wide Open, is that he combines the true tragedy of the death of his bipolar nephew at the bottom of the 600 foot high Morrow Bay Rock (see alexwemissyou.com) with a suspenseful story of family secrets and a murdering cult leader.
This story line elicits memories (for those of you old enough in the 1960s) of the Sharon Tate and LaBianca murders by Charles Manson and his cult family, for which many of them are imprisoned to this day.
This author is one to watch and this book with its grisly murders is not for the weak of heart or stomach.
