How a 'Dark Thriller' should be!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bad Games - A Dark Psychological Thriller (Bad Games Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
To me, this was a brilliant purchase and it was well worth it. I have read many dark thrillers as I love the kind of fiction that can bridge a thriller to horror. And this does the job impeccably.
The plot was brilliant and the characters are plausible. It is a novel that really does explore the dark psyches of two of the most vilest characters you could ever have the profound misfortune to meet. The sheer uneasiness that the two psychotic brothers can generate will have you riveted to this novel. For me, it felt I was going into Jack Ketchum territory - which is not a problem since I'm a fan of his work - but this really takes you into a very dark place indeed.
What is really scary about this novel is that such events have actually occurred. And what the family in this story gets subjected to is truly the stuff of nightmares.
This is a brilliant novel by a really good writer and I bought the sequel immediately. Forget the odd poor review of this novel, they simply bought the wrong book. For me, this has the potential to be made into a pretty effective film - and I hope it does.
Bravo, a great work!
