Hidden Chamber of Death is a compelling tale of intrigue, murder, deception and suspense that leads retired Navy SEAL/part-time private investigator Craige Ingram in search of the connection between seemingly random murders and a banking conspiracy.
Working with the local homicide investigator, who just happens to be a former Navy buddy, Craige Ingram's attempts to protect a lonely widow and solve the case before another person dies are only thwarted by a psychotic killer whose motivation is based on pure depraved pleasure. In this first book of the MOCCASIN HOLLOW MYSTERY SERIES, the instincts and skills Ingram and his buddy acquired as Navy SEALS are tested to their limits.

Do you ever read a book and then sit back and have zero clue what you actually think about it?
No? I’m alone? Well, that’s troubling.
I found Hidden Chamber of Death to be quite frustrating and confusing and suspenseful and tense and I couldn’t stop turning the page!
I really, really struggled through the beginning. I felt it was drawn out and quite confusing. Almost too much information.
Then I got sucked in. But then I got confused again. Then I got sucked in again.
I will say, the… violence in this book is quite gory. I shut my eyes and turned my head a few times, but that doesn’t help when you are reading a book.
All in all, I’m not sure how I feel. If I am 100% honest, I feel like I need to go back and read it again and see if that helps clear up my initial confusion.
I am not counting this book out just yet until I reread it. Right now, I can’t say I love it, but I certainly do not hate it. I’m a neutral party, drawn in by the suspense!
