My past is gruesome and unforgettable no matter how hard I try to let go.
Writing is my escape. My only therapy.
When I met my wife, had children, and my career sky-rocketed, I thought I’d never revisit those dark days again.
So, the moment Blue Hill, Maine beckons for me, I go willingly in an effort to write the next big story.
But when a ghost from my past shows up, all of my carefully rebuilt walls come crumbling down hard and fast. My only way of defense is ripped from my grasp as this distraction bounces into my life.
Will I be able to sift through what’s fiction to find reality?
I’m a serial killer. A victim of narcissism and the need to satisfy my own urges. I have a thirst to snuff out the lives of those that remind me of her—the woman that ruined me—and I take great pleasure in quenching that thirst.
I have no rules. No parameters. I do as I please.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Henry McElroy, is my god. His sick, twisted mind constructs the world to which I rule. I would be nothing without him—my dark creator.
What happens when Henry McElroy’s story begins to take a realistic form the moment he sets foot in the sleepy, seaside town in Maine? As soon as he begins sharing excerpts of his book with his fans on social media, including an obsessive one he meets in Blue Hill, bodies begin to stack up in similar fashion to that of which he writes about. Will the blame be placed on the town’s newest and most twisted visitor? Or will Henry be able to prove his innocence and clear his name before it’s too late?
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Raw…gritty…moving. This book had me from the very first pages. The characters are realistic and the hero shows so many layers you have no idea what to expect one page to the next.
Henry is broken and as you get deeper and deeper into the story you see just how broken he really is. Let me tell you. It surprised the hell out of me! But wouldn’t you after witnessing your father murder your family?
Henry loved Helen, his terminally ill sister. They witnessed their parents struggles with money and heard the constant fighting. On one fateful night his dad snaps. Killing everyone he has ever loved and almost ending Henry’s life in the process.
Now some years later he still bares the scars of that night. His only constant is his family and his loving wife, Leesa. She knows him, she gets him. Almost to the point of insanity but you just have to read the story to find out what I’m talking about.
Being a best selling author he travels to Blue Hill in hopes the setting will help him finish his latest book. He quickly realizes that his main character in his book, Eli, would have a field day in Blue Hill. The towns people are the perfect setting for a serial killer.
The womanizing Mayor, the whore daughter of the sheriff…but when people start coming up dead all eyes are on him.
I’m not going to lie there was some crazy twisty stuff in this story. The type that makes your skin crawl. Trust me it’s worth it. There is SOOOO much I didn’t disclose because I didn’t want to ruin the story but YOU MUST read it. It’s truly a work of fictional art..
Favorite Scene: The hotel room with his wife.
She fishes me out every time. Her love and strength hold me up when I no longer have the mental capacity to do it myself.
