Audible Editor Reviews

Horror and suspense author Douglas Clegg can boast a wide audience for his sinister works of fiction, partly due to his early embrace of e-publishing models. Purity, for instance, was downloaded more than 100,000 times in its first year of publication. And for good reason. This novella narrated by a sociopath is indeed grave and gripping, Clegg's signature.

Johnathan McClain performs this tale of privilege, love, and love's inevitable dark side with an ominous tone that drops the temperature of an already chilling audiobook. Purity is as much about psychological transformation as it is about external events on Outerbridge Island, and McClain is deft at capturing these nuances.

Publisher's Summary

From the critically-acclaimed, award-winning author, Douglas Clegg, comes a twisting, dark psychological thriller of dangerous obsession. Owen Crites has watched Jenna Montgomery become a beautiful young woman as they've practically grown up together through the summer. Owen is the gardener's son, and one day he will become groundskeeper of the Montgomery summer estate on Outerbridge Island, off the New England coast.

Now, both of them teenagers, Owen begins to understand that Jenna is meant for a different life in adulthood than what he is destined for - and he knows that he must somehow keep her on the island until she no longer wants to leave. But there's a shadowed evil nestled in Owen's heart.

Enter Jimmy McTeague, the young tennis star from Manhattan, and heir to a sporting goods fortune, has also come to spend the summer with the Montgomery's - and soon, a triangle of love, hate, and the darkest of human impulses emerges.
