C. M. Okonkwo got me there, just when i thought i could figure out the mystery behind the closed door myself, every chapter had a story to tell. So full of suspense and enthralling. Following the up-shot. Green light.

Absolutely loved and enjoyed Closed Door. It's captivating and one of those "I can't stop until I finish" books. Great plot; lots of surprises. Can't wait to read the sequel.
C.M. Okonkwo never disappoints.

Review by: Andy B on May 24, 2014 :
Closed Door is a short story that I read basically in one sitting. It's fast paced, intriguing and an ingenious mystery with a revealing and surprising end. It leaves you curious to know what will happen next, with a good cliffhanger.

The family portrayed seems at most times to be dysfunctional, maybe it was the author's intention, in order to insert more intrigue and mystery into the story. The mother's apparent insensitivity to the situation and almost childlike behavior maybe clues into the development of a more psychological side for a follow up. I'm curious to find out what happens in the next installation. Overall, great imagination and plot.

Great! Great! Great! Just the way i like it. Well constructed suspense, reminds me of the likes of Dean Koontz, too intriguing to be a short story. A must read. Big thumbs up to the author.

Closed door... I think this book should be a novel. Its hilarious too.. I wondered what sort of parents wouldn't trust their children so, but after that insight, I do not fault them.
Suspense was made for this author. C. M. Okonkwo handles this well! Now I'd be weary before opening a closed door!
