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.
My review...WOW! I was hooked by the first sentences, "The Devil never does his own dirty work. He relies on the cruelty of others who come in the dark of night, carrying death in their pocket." I was captured! A trio of friends, Jake Holyfield is a cop who is working on a serial murder case, his brother Bobby is in love with Marie who treats him like dirt, and Max who is currently unemployed and dealing with the fact his mom is very ill, are a means to an end for the Devil. Each has something they really want. Max takes a deal he shouldn't and Jake figures out there is no way he will be bringing the murder in for justice to be served. Come see how Jake is forced to believe in the devil as an entity wreaking havok on the world. See which of his friends betrays him.
This is a face-paced story with lots of twists and turns. Can't wait to see what happens to everyone! Will Jake be able to get justice himself? Will the world be safe? I have the next two books lined up to find out!
I could almost feel the dark in Albrachts scenes. Her bits of light in the story make the dark all the more horrifying.
Of course when dealing with the devil or his lieutenant, the evil is going to be pervasive as mystery piles on top of mystery. Some scenes are horrifyingly graphic, but that is why we read horror.
Congratulations to Suzi Albracht for crafting another compelling horror mystery.
