Book Spotlight: Ambiguity by Allen Renfro

A friend gave me a copy of Ambiguity, and once I started reading, I was hooked. I went through it in one sitting. The story opens with a bang—literally. Gunfire, explosions, swat team… It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. 

At first, I didn’t realize this was a sequel to another book - Bridge Water, but it didn’t matter, I had no problem following the story. Yes, there is a romance, but there is so much more to this MM love story. The relationship between Will and Derrick is only a part of this intriguing thriller that centers on a killing spree. 

The characters drew me in, and I felt like they were real people. The plot is dark and realistic, and it kept me guessing with its many twists. Two thumbs up from me. I’m now looking forward to reading Bridge Water.

Ambiguity by Allen Renfro


The phone rings.

Will is glad he didn't go straight to bed after his shift. The call is probably Derek. After a night of bar hopping he’s probably too drunk to drive and needs a ride home.

At such a late hour Reverend Wallace wonders which elderly member of his congregation has died.

Nearly asleep Laura knows she shouldn't answer the phone in the middle of the night, but it could be her husband who is out of town.

They are wrong.

In the wake of a senseless and horrific crime a city is torn apart and a nation is in shock. As investigators delve into the lives of the suspect and the victims they unravel an even darker mystery. A grieving community will struggle to deal with the consequences of the secrets that are revealed. Secrets that will leave no life untouched.
