Threads is a work of fiction in the suspense and murder mystery subgenres, and it serves as the fourth installation of the Scott Brody Thriller series. The work is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Bryan Cassiday. In the latest iteration of this thrilling mystery series, we find ourselves with protagonist Scott as he becomes suspect number one in an explosive new murder case. Scott must team up with the feisty and hot-headed Tess Hardwick to clear his name, but it won't be easy to pinpoint the real killer when the victim is the viciously unpleasant Max Reed, who was hated by virtually all who knew him. What results is a race against time to find justice with darkness and deceit waiting around every corner.
I adore dark, thrilling mysteries that offer much more grit and dread than the alternative cozy genre, and the Scott Brody thriller series has never failed to deliver on that score. One of the features I enjoyed most in this novel was the complex ensemble cast that author Bryan Cassiday has crafted, each with their own sinister motivations and subplots that Scott must unpick. I enjoyed the pacing of the plot, which allows for plenty of exposition and time to get to know the intricacies of the case and the conspiracy, after which the momentum really picks up as the pressure on Scott closes in. This makes for a truly thrilling and suspenseful adventure that really tests our protagonist to his limits. I would certainly recommend Threads for fans of the existing series as well as newcomers seeking an incredible murder mystery that you will struggle to put down.
