Chris Nielson has lost his job in the rock and roll band he has played with for years and his long time girlfriend has thrown him out physically after he kept her out of his life emotionally. Needing to regroup and reenergize, he accepts a job as a house sitter for his father's friend on a tiny island off the Maryland Coast connected to the mainland by an unnamed, almost hidden bridge.

The owner of the house, Ted Harper, is a very successful, wealthy and powerful businessman who decides to show Chris that he isn't living up to his potential. When he discovers what his employee is doing, Chris takes his revenge in a very diabolical manner. His satisfaction is very short lived because he crossed the wrong person, a man who knows how to take care of his enemies.

John Maxwell's debut novel is the ultimate in suspense, a work that could have been created by Anthony Shaffer (SLEUTH) or Ira Levin (DEATHTRAP) because it is so darkly foreboding and atmospheric. POINT FURY stars two characters, neither of them very likable, making it remarkable that readers become involved in the torturous mind games that the predator designs for his prey. This is a very well designed novel that once started can't be put down until the audience finds out how things turn out.

Chris Nielson, an unemployed rock musician, is hired by Ted Harper, an old friend of his father, to watch his house in Point Fury on the Maryland coast during the cold winter months. Apparently, there have been past robberies in this community and Ted wants the house to be lived in. Chris feels the solitude may give him a chance to develop his musical skills so accepts the job with some trepidation. As the long winter settles in, Chris notices a mysterious woman has moved into the house next door. Discovering who she is and why she is there proves to be highly dangerous to Chris. Dangerous enough to possibly cost him his life at the hands of a madman.

When you have a book whose hero is almost as bad as its villain, you know you're in deep doodoo. In Maxwell's debut "Point Fury" we meet one Chris Nielson, a self-absorbed, self-pitying, fly by night who seeks the reader's sympathy because he's had such a terrible breakdown when his band breaks up and he loses his girlfriend. So he does what any self-respecting hero would do----cops out by agreeing to "housesit" for an eccentric friend of his father's. He plans to "get hia act together and spend time writing his own music." Well, he spends most of his first days in the house just sitting around and moaning his fate. Then he meets Caroline, and he's smitten, but of course, this young lady is not what she seems (gasp!). Then we find out that the man who hired Chris is (gasp) not what he seems. Then the cruel henchman for the boss (gasp) shoots and kills Chris' beloved dog. From here on out, things just get weirder and more confusing, culminating in some type of mafioso bloodbath at the end, that leaves Chris determined to lead a better life. And even though it seems Ted Harper's motives for imprisoning Chris are to punish his father for talking him out of being an actor (huh?), we never understand why he does this to Chris and not the father! An interesting premise, with some style evidenced by Maxwell, but Chris is so unlikeable, you can't really get involved in the book.
NOT RECOMMENDED.

John Maxwell's writing debut is a pretty good book. It held my attention throughout with nonstop suspense.
Chris Nielson is a college graduate in his twenties whose life seems to have little direction. He was a member of a hard rock band, but a fight ended that relationship. A rich friend of his father's offers him a job house-sitting his beach house. The house is located in a pretty deserted are of Maryland. There is little to do. Chris figured he was in for a mostly boring winter hanging around doing pretty much nothing. But little did he know what he was really in for. The owner of the house is insane, and Chris will have to deal with an awful lot.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was suspenseful and kept me guessing a lot. I will definitely be reading the next book John Maxwell writes.

I really, really enjoyed this book. Once I got into it, it was a totally compelling page-turner which I couldn't put it down (e.g.it was a drag to have to put it down - I found myself hoping for a stuck subway on the way to work, a long wait for the elevator, etc.)
The atmosphere the book created actually stayed with me for 3-4 days after I'd finished it - the same way the atmosphere of Gorky Park stayed with me. It was very real and haunting.
One of the reviews mentions that the movie rights have been sold.
Good - I can't wait to see the movie! And I'm looking forward to more books from this new author!

Right from the opening page, Maxwell proves he's in contention with Gorman, Koontz, and Morrell as one of the great thriller writers.POINT FURY takes thrillseekers to a darker dimension, past the edge of their seats, and into a higher intensity... madness never felt this good before. A stunning debut! Gary S. Potter Author/Poet

After reading Stephen King's positive review, I decided to check this book out, and...wow! What a debut! Maxwell has created a memorably creepy villain, and a likeable (if somewhat confused) hero. I stayed up all night and read this book in one sitting - it's that good. If you're a fan of twisty, dark, psychological thrillers, then "Point Fury" is for you.
I bought this book yesterday and read almost the entire book in one night, I finished it today.
I couldn't put the book down, it had me interested right from the first few pages all the way until the last page.
I hope to read more from this author.
