Mike Dellosso is known for his riveting suspense, usually with some supernatural element. Tyndale House is now releasing his eighth suspense novel, Centralia, and it is off to a great start. Tyndale wrote Mike: “Centralia has been chosen by our largest distributor (Ingram), as the feature title in their Mystery and Suspense Newsletter! To my knowledge they don’t typically select titles from Tyndale, as this would cover both the General Market and Christian genre. Hopefully this will increase pre-orders from retailers and help with Library placement!”
A quick look at Centralia’s front cover reveals what in the trade is called “a commercial cover,” meaning it emphasizes the name of the author. It’s a common practice by secular market publishers promoting a well-known author.
With strong endorsements, Centralia is being touted as his best suspense thriller yet. In it Paul Ryan wakes up on a typical morning only to find his house empty, his wife and daughter nowhere to be found. His world is shattered after a phone call to a friend confirms the impossible, his wife and daughter died in a car accident he does not remember.
Haunted by faint memories and flashes of details, Peter becomes convinced that something isn’t right and begins to question reality. When he discovers a note in his daughter’s handwriting, strange memories surface that cause him to second-guess nearly everything he once believed. Suddenly armed men show up at Peter’s home, turning the mysterious puzzle of his past into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
Best-selling author Jeanette Windle writes: “Every time I real a Mike Dellosso thriller, I find a new favorite—until another hits bookstores that tops the last. Definitely the best yet, Centralia is not just a non-stop thrill ride with Dellosso’s signature spine-chilling suspense edged with the supernatural. It is a deeply moving story of one man’s desperate search for all that has been ripped from him—family, identity, honor—and ultimately his greatest loss and heart longing—a restored relationship with his heavenly Father all logical evidence would indicate has abandoned him. Centralia is a story I will not soon forget.”
