Dan Blakely was on the literally verge of success. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel he never thought in his wildest dreams that anything could change so drastically in the blink of an eye or in his case in a decision he felt could hold no repercussions for him. Yet all of that would change in the matter of 7 simple hours.

When he got up that morning little could dampen his spirits until he got a phone call from his boss asking to speak with him right away when he gets in first thing. He didn't think he had anything to be concerned about. So when he arrives at the office, he learns that one his students, Erin Schriver, who he confronted about cheating on her literature essay paper, now is accusing him of sexual harassment and physical abuse. She is also the daughter of a well-known Senator and since the board knows that this will become a media circus, they have no alternative, but to fire Dan.

What this does to Dan's emotional side of things is to consider all the possibilities that this situation could bring not only to himself but to his wife and two young sons as well. So Dan see's no other possibility than to end his life. This is where the story really gets interesting and what makes Rearview in my opinion a great short suspense thriller reminiscent of a Twilight Zone of Night Gallery episode.

In this part of the 7 Hours Series, Mike Dellosso does what he does best and that is bring the reader into his story and gets them to invest in this on an emotional level. Anyone could imagine what it would be like to be in this nightmare and then he twists it like no one can. A man in black appears just as Dan is on the verge of death and provides him with proposition. He can go back in time to any 7 hours in his past, move forward 7 hours in his future or do nothing and die now. Any of the options will end in his death but it is up to him to chose how to live his final hours.

Mike Dellosso is a master at weaving these types of story lines from his previous novels I've had the privilege to be able to read and I can highly recommend this one. There is a unique twist in this one and one that rings a personal message to Mike as well as anyone who reads this one. I received this eBook for my Kindle as a personal purchase and have to say I can't say enough great things about this and can't wait to finish the entire series! What choice would you make if you found yourself in that situation? I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars. It makes for a perfect easy read that feels like an entire novels worth in this short story and for those of you that love a great twist suspense thriller, then this is perfect for you! ( )
