Reviewer: Anna Klein (Maine, USA)
David Johnson is a big name on Wall Street. Jonah Roberts is a farmer in Maine. Both men are being stalked by a psychopath they met once in college and haven't thought about since. The story that follows can only be described as amazing.
Downtick has no dull moments and is full of interesting police procedure, an insider's view of Wall Street, and a very accurate portrayal of rural Maine. Regan Ashbaugh keeps upping the stakes until by the end of Downtick the reader would like to jump into the pages and catch this psychopath himself. The whole book is full of twists and turns and the last Part is suspense at its best.

Regan Ashbaugh is not a literary writer and Downtick contains some cliches. However, his characters are not stereotyped, his vilian is terrifying, and his suspense is perfect.

I have read this thriller twice. Highly recommended.
