  • Gripping thriller

    Reviewed by Joanie Chevalier for Readers' Favorite Ancestor by Lee Matthew Goldberg is a suspenseful psychological thriller that will have readers flipping the pages as fast as they can to find out what happens next. Wyatt wakes up in the present day feeling out of sorts and finally realizes he had been frozen for one hundred and twenty-two years. The world as he knew it was different in many ways. But the thing he was most perplexed about was the man he saw who looked just like him. Has he seen this man before? Is he somehow part of the puzzle of his life? Wyatt tells it best: “Who am I anyway? I’m a mixture of some of the past, some of this new present. It ain’t a fully realized person. Bits and pieces, you know?” When Wyatt puts two and two together, he doesn’t exactly come up with four, the obvious solution. Because what happens next jumbles up his life and turns it upside down. The twist at the end of Ancestor is unexpected and will give you shivers. What I liked most about Ancestor by Lee Matthew Goldberg is the conversations between the characters. I felt as if I were in the same room, eavesdropping. Goldberg is also good at playing with our emotions. At times I felt sorry for Wyatt, and at other times, revulsion, disappointment, shaken, and especially towards the end of the book, trepidation as I finally realized that a somewhat sinister plan was taking place. I won’t reveal the plan because I want readers to discover it on their own, but I am confident they will be as engrossed as I was in the reveal. Ancestor by Lee Matthew Goldberg is a story for readers who love a gripping psychological thriller, and they will be thinking about it long after they finish.

  • Scary the amount of one man's power

    The Ancestor by Lee Matthew Goldberg Wyatt Barlow, an 1890s man wakes up from a frozen state, not knowing who he is at first or what is going on. As he thaws, he hears shots fired nearby and slowly makes his way in that direction. He is shocked when he finds one of the two men looks just like him. He doesn't want to lose the connection to this twin person, so he hides in their truck and rides with them. Travis Barlow sees a man in town, that looks like his doppelganger. It's uncanny. If Travis were to grow his beard long, they would be twins. They run into one another in the local bar and introduce themselves. Wyatt gives a different last name, he wants to figure out what's going on, before he reveals his true identity. Wyatt finds himself falling in love with Travis' wife Callie and son Eli. They remind him of the wife and son he left back in 1898. He is 160 years old, so he knows he will never see them again. He finds himself wanting Travis' family for himself, at any cost. Wyatt makes some friends in the local village, as he gathers intel so he can initiate his plans. The book was fast paced, held my attention. Lots of twists and turns. Perfect for those looking for a thriller. Many thanks for the complimentary copy from Net Galley and All Due Respect with no obligation to post a review.
