Book Review - The Furnace by Timothy S. Johnston


The Furnace
by Timothy S. Johnston
Published 2013
390 Pages

Set in AD 2401, homicide investigator Kyle Tanner has a well known reputation for finding criminals and bringing them to justice. Kyle tracked down the infamous Torcher, and as the fanfare and media attention still hasn't faded, Kyle is summoned to 'Solex One' to solve a mysterious murder of a crewman on this station orbiting the sun. 

As Kyle discovers the corpse has had its hands and head removed, he has more questions than answers. How can a self-contained facility so close to the sun have a murderer on board and leave no trace? And there may be more than just murder going on. A possible infection is spreading, and characters who are proving to be less than forthcoming keep Kyle guessing. With a few minor flaws on his record, how will Kyle find a killer among this crew of well credentialed researchers?

This futuristic story holds a great mystery, with a love story intertwined. The suspense is high, and it keeps you guessing! Any issues were minor, and did not take away from the mystery and suspense of the story. I recommend this book to any reader who loves an edge-of-your-seat page turner!
