Author James Mitchum Oates Presents a Dark and Thrilling Novel That Will Scintillate and Put Readers on the Edge of Their Seats

By: WebWire

A child grows up questioning the affection and emotional support his parents and siblings have for him and eventually sees the loving household as an illusion—with a far more sinister truth, in James Mitchum Oates' dark and enigmatic novel “The Silent Deception.”

Joshua McClure recalls his mother calling him a less attractive and more problematic infant than his older brother and twin brother. Her harsh treatment follows Josh throughout his childhood, from the blame she unfairly shoves onto him for the mistake and antics of his brother to denying him the opportunity for academic advancement. The opposing parental views cause the father of Josh to leave their home. When the mother gets a new boyfriend, things get much worse. Suspicion, doubt, and terror replace the love Josh has for his family. And after leaving and trying to create a future for himself and his girlfriend, Josh is soon drawn back home under pretenses, ultimately uncovering a deception that leads to a shocking outcome.

What mystery will Josh unravel as the truth finally unfolds? Will the truth free him, or will it imprison him in terror?

James' quick read and the fast-paced novel will put the readers on the edge of their seats as he unravels the sinister truth behind the sufferings inflicted upon him by his own family. The book is well received and has received a five-star review with a comment saying:

“I highly recommend this book. The author gave a great detailed description of the events that took place and the ending! Well, you'll have to just read it for yourself.”
