Beckon by Tom Pawlik

Some things weren’t meant to be discovered. Three people are each drawn to the small town of Beckon, Wyoming. A young anthropologist researches a Native American legend and makes a terrifying discovery. An ex-cop investigating her cousin’s disappearance finds herself in grave peril. And an aging businessman is lured by the promise of a miracle. One by one they discover the town’s ghastly secret. The only question is . . . will any of them make it out alive?

Jack Kendrick father disappeared twelve years ago, and yet he searches.  Elina Gutierrez, a police officer, is also searching.  A cousin went to Beckon for a job prospect and disappeared.  Then there is George Wilcox.  He goes to Beckon for a different reason - he was told the cure for his wife's alzheimer's could be found there.

Three different people, three strangers, all in the small town of Beckon where the suspense and chills don't stop.  Those that come to Beckon don't leave, at least not alive.  As the three of them get pulled deeper and deeper into the the town's secrets, they learn of a great evil. But who of them will survive to tell the tale?

Beckon is a taut, suspense driven novel that will have you up late burning the midnight oil, gripped in the story.  With excellent writing, creating a world you can envision, complex and likable characters and a darkness that will give you chills, Beckon is a must read for any suspense fan!!

*I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.



  1. this sounds like my kind of suspence story. I'd love to read it, even if it took all night.

  2. I read it for the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy blog tour and I really liked it.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
