The Geek was a very fun story. Geek is obviously a highly skilled killer, but he also has a fun side that I feel many readers will be able to connect to. He wears a Captain America T-shirt when taking the life of the bad guys: a sort of calling card to let them know who sent him. He also is a big comic book buff who hates wearing suits, two things that young readers will be able to identify with. The novel moved quickly and only had a few minor editing problems. I look forward to more from this author.
Through a series of highly addicting twists and turns we find out Gary has imbued the wrath of a couple named Greta and Heinrich who can’t seem to forgive a .22 to the head leaving them only wounded and presumed dead.
This oversight unleashes a sadistic revenge plot on Gary and everyone in his world that he now realizes he holds near and dear. In a disarming revelation we see no one is safe not even the innocent or the pacifists due to circumstances set into motion by his own hand.
One of the many great things about “ The Geek” are the complex characters. Greta and Heinrich, like most diabolical bad guys, are convinced they are really out saving the world. Therefore the self righteous, psychotic cross dresser and his gorgeous murderous girlfriend feel they are given license to wage war using a wide variety of unique, evil and tortuous methods on anyone standing in their way.
As far as the lead character the author creates an riveting character arc portraying Gary as the proverbial lone wolf hero realizing late in the game that he really does want the life that he has only ever run from.
Every chapter reads like a scene in a movie written with such a distinct visual style I felt swept away from beginning to end. No one or nothing is quite what it seems. Right up until the last cliff hanging moment.
