    Story
    "Graphic violence with lyrical prose"

    It's frankly quite stunning to read descriptions of such graphic violence in a novella of lyrical prose. The descriptions of Vermont are beautiful while the suspense is intense.

    Scott Cummings delivers an outstanding performance. He gives distinctive and very appropriate voices to the characters. His narration is spot on.

    Although it's short (under 3 hours) this is an extraordinarily compelling psychological thriller.

    NOTE: I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for this unbiased review.

    "Dark, twisted story"

    A dark, twisted story of the how a violent, cruel, disturbed mind can corrupt and destroy those it touches. Brutal and sexually violent, the story twists back and forth on itself as you go from an act of kindness by an emotionally scared and grieving couple, to perturbing scenes of rape and murder, in this twisted tale of jealousy, secrets and savagery. The narrator does a good job of pulling you into the noir theme of the story; imparting the flatness of depression, the insanity of a distorted mind and the desperation of victims. The somewhat poetic nature of the writing gives the story a bit of an unrealistic feel and mitigates the horror of the tale to some extent but it still remains a disturbing, creepy piece of noir fiction. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation to review.
