This is one review in which I feel that talking about the story itself would be a disservice to those who should read the book.
All you need to know is that It is a very interesting take on rape.
I liked what Kristopher Rufty did with the issue of rape in our society and how it can be viewed from a different perspective. He is also quickly becoming an author I really enjoy reading.
I was not as thrilled with this story as I was Prank Night. Although his writing is reminiscent of Richard Laymon, this particular novel lacked fluidity and "tightness". I also felt that there was a lack of motive credibility for some of the characters and the ending was quite abrupt. It felt like so much more could have been done with this story.
That being said, the story itself, albeit short, was certainly a page-turner. Where the story lacked depth, it made up in sheer thrill and plot interest.
I am very much looking forward to reading some more work by Kristopher Rufty.
I recommend this book to fans of controversial topics, shocking violence, and anyone who has read all of Laymon's books and is looking for another similar option.
