As they travel, the bounty hunter reveals each encounter with Eric to his prisoner. Over time, this led to his bond with Eric growing, particularly when the two commiserated after the bounty hunter's friend best friend stole his girl. The more we hear, the more apparent it becomes that there's something sinister about these seemingly random encounters.
The story is noirish but also the ending is somewhat reminiscent of an episode of the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV Show. What's actually going on is not a huge surprise, but how the solution's arrived at and the bounty hunter's reactions are both interesting and thought provoking. The language is gritty and subject matter is mature, but the author doesn't become too graphic. The dialogue is solid and believable which is good because the dialogue is central to the story. Overall, it's a solid and well-written revenge mystery which manages to have a surprise or two for its reader.
Some novellas are difficult to get into because there's not much time or the reader to engage. That wasn't the case with Confessions of the Cuckold. I read it in one sitting and it never lost my interest.
I like the way the narrator, whose name was never given, told most of the story to another character (a pedophile of all things) until the end.
Part of the ending was exactly what I expected but part of it was a complete surprise. That's the way I like it!
I definitely recommend Confessions of the Cuckold, especially if you're looking for something short but good.
