When an ex-con moves back to his hometown, his enemies come calling—but the justice planned by a vigilante group is nothing compared to the enemy that never leaves his side.
I’m not normally a reader of this genre but I was deeply interested in this book. It is a very invigorating read. The chapters are skillfully written to keep the reader from putting it down. It’s slightly haunting narrative gave the story a particularly hair-raising supernatural effect. The mystery and the plot points I will leave for the next reader to enjoy. As I said reading this genre is not normally my forte but I extremely enjoyed this book and it engaged my interest.
This book does not have a hopeful theme. The first page starts off dark and continues that thread throughout. Michael, the main character is not a good guy or town hero. He has a dark past and there is an evil always present with him. I did find the learning about his past intriguing. The town, which seemed to consider him the boogey man, was very complex themselves. None of them stood out as heroes and they had their own sins to contend with.
There is some descriptive violence and the story overall was chilling. Not for those who scare easily. I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
