You can smell the brimstone and visualise the fiends and fury of Hades as you race through the narrative all too easily. I barely put the book down after I was drawn in after a quick run through the first few chapters just to see what it was like!
I found myself liking and loathing Royce, who like all good villains has just the right level of wit and panache. I also loved how the story was never straightforward, with twists and unexpected turns cropping up regularly. As for scares, it's definitely a read with the light on story. Give it a go!
In “The Devil’s Lieutenant” Suzi Albracht weaves a tale of evil horror that made my skin crawl. With characters that jump off the page I was drawn into the story, following Jake Holyfield as he battles the malevolent forces that seek to destroy those he loves. In a story where good looks bad and bad looks good and shockers lay in almost every chapter, I couldn’t put the book down.
Starting with a horrifying and very gruesome killing Jake sets out investigating similar crimes. Meeting a strange and ethereal young girl at that first crime scene he is given a tool that will come in handy down the line. With dead bodies that have been dissolved into “globs” of fat and blood the story unwinds in growing tension. Interwoven in the story is the relationship between Jake and Bobby Holyfield and their childhood friend Max Wilson. Along with the mysterious Mikael Ruskoff, Jake battles the minions of the Devil himself. Filling out the story are the personal relationships of the characters; important relationships that carry the story forward neatly. Always terrifying and often heart-breaking, The Devil’s Lieutenant is a must read for horror fans.There are minor editing issues which in no way affect the story or my enjoyment in reading it.
Since this is book one of a collection I can hope my favorite characters will continue their war against evil in future editions.
I won’t spoil the plot for you, but let’s just say that it is about a homicide detective, Jake Holyfield, who is investigating a series of rather nasty murders. The victims are horribly mutilated. In fact they are dissolved leaving behind bits of fat, gristle and blood. Clueless as to who committed these murders, he is given a tip off by a mysterious nark that the killer is non other than an agent for the Devil himself out to collect the debts owed to him. Jake’s beliefs and morals are turned upside down as he discovers more sinister details about the gruesome murders.
The characters on the whole were very believable and engaging. Perhaps Jake’s wife, who is pregnant, wasn’t as well drawn out as the main characters. The only downside for me was that it was a bit too long-winded at times and the author fell into the trap of telling not showing on occasions. However, it is a minor point and did not spoil my enjoyment of the book. So much happens in this novel with many twists and turns that I defy anyone not to be caught up in this fast-paced thriller.
Soul selling, good versus evil, murder, mystery, and a bit of romance, makes this a thrilling and highly entertaining read.
Recommended for anyone who enjoys a good bit of gruesome horror that is well told.
