Publisher's Summary

The streets of Redwood, California, are being stalked by a brutal serial killer known as The Scattershot Slayer - a tall, lanky man who kidnaps and tortures his victims before creating grotesque pieces of public art with their mutilated bodies. Viola Santoro, a freelance journalist, is tracking Scattershot for her independent investigation in hopes of writing an exposé. After she unwittingly captures the serial killer's attention, she receives the scoop of a lifetime. Scattershot kidnaps Viola, straps her to an iron chair in his dungeon, and forces her to watch his acts of torture - over and over. He doesn't harm her, though. Instead, he gives her what she wants: his motives, his dreams, his life story.

Jon Athan, the provocative author of The Good, the Bad, and the Sadistic, invites you into the broken mind of a disturbed serial killer.

WARNING: This book contains scenes of graphic violence. This book is not intended for those easily offended or appalled.

Review for Scattershot by Jon Athan, Narrated by Rebekah Nemethy

This book contains scenes of graphic violence. This book is not intended for those easily offended or appalled. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

For those familiar with Jon Athan’s work, the shock value and stellar writing you have come to expect is there in a big way. In typical Jon Athan fashion, we are introduced to a character who torments our very souls just by thinking of him. The Scattershot Slayer is a deadly, serious, killer with emotions scattered just as much as the buckshot from the shotgun used to kill his first victims.

As the book transgresses, we find out so much information on this sadistic killer. Athan weaves a tale so brutally frightening and shock inducing, it opens up our minds to the depravity of the human existence.

While I imagine reading the novel had its own moments of wonder, the use of Rebekah Nemethy as the narrator for this audiobook was a genius move. Rebekah is a star in this performance, keeping me at the edge of my seat during every brutal scene that was presented. Her cadence and delivery were spot on for the entire production and she chose the perfect voice to bring us the Scattershot Slayer! You could feel the “unrightness” that was dripping from his character while being presented so wonderfully by Nemethy.

The audio was clean and professional and overall a truly enjoyable albeit slightly frightening experience. I will definitely seek out more titles narrated by Rebekah Nemethy. For those who love shock Horror, Jon Athan continues to dominate the genre with his prolific writing skills. If you liked this title, check out “Lovesick” or “Dr. Sadist”!
