In a world of plenty and instant gratification lies a window to the underworld we made. Mankind has created a market for flesh, the skin trade in every sense of the word. Instant gratification also means that we can buy sex, and if we don’t want to buy it we can resort to rape, and if we want to escape our pain we can buy drugs. You might live in suburban splendour, but you know there are areas which are dangerous, areas you’d rather your children didn’t go. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to grow up in that danger zone? What’s it like when your dad murders your mom and then becomes your pimp so you can earn him money for his addiction? This is THAT story.

There is a detached air about this novel, as if you are seeing it through a softened lens. What you’ll read may appall you, it may horrify you, and if you have lived a sheltered existence it will break your heart. The authors have done a brilliant job at peeling back the veneer of civilisation to expose the festering darkness living in tandem with yours, the world of crime, where you are either a predator or a victim. There is no middle ground.

Svetlana lives a half life, one where pain and humiliation are her daily bread. The agony and despair she goes through will make you flinch, and then when Dark and Dangerous steps into her life you will rejoice. At last the dark horseman rises, the Goodbye Man, the angel of death. Svetlana is stunted emotionally, trauma will do that to you. She’s a woman-child who knows all about the seedy underbelly of society and how to be ready for penetration, it’s how she earns her ‘daddy’ his money, but she is emotionally naive, she is child-like because she was never allowed to mature, she is locked in her cycle, her neurons are wired that way now.

Two abused prostitutes, an organ harvester, a necrophiliac and a junkie pimp… Sounds like the start of a bad joke. It’s really the main characters of the most messed up book I’ve ever read. Ever.

Svetlana was born to a pimp and hooker. She’s never known a life outside of being abused and used by her junkie father. He sells her for his own addiction. She wishes to die. She wishes to be loved. Her mind is just as, if not more, broken than her body. She doesn’t see herself as anything other than a vessel for abuse and rape. She believes that is what she was born for.

There is a point where Svetlana’s entire world changes. A point where Ceasar and Mateo come into play. They change some things about her existence for the better, others … not so much. Because Ceasar and Mateo are not sane and good individuals either. They live in the shadow’s of the world’s underbelly. They do unspeakable things to people who they hope won’t be missed. They save poor souls, they give life, but they do it with horrific acts.

Ceasar and Mateo both come to love Svetlana. And she them. But these people don’t know how to love. They know screwed up feelings that they don’t understand and they confuse for love.

There is not a single good person in this book. Svetlana comes the closest, but it would take this girl years and years of therapy to truly get there. The Goodbye Man is a tale of the cruelest people, living in the darkest shadows and yet somehow surviving and grasping for the chance at love and acceptance.

The Goodbye Man is written in a way that makes it very easy to get inside of the head of these characters. Which is equally thrilling and disturbing. My only real complaint is that it was, at times, too repetitive. The point was made and then made again and it lead me to skim at a couple of points. Beyond that, this is a fairly well written, completely disturbing, dark ass read that will probably stick with me for a while.

I love dark books and this one started out with a bang. I was actually impressed that two authors took a chance and wrote about some of the horrific things that people will do to others in order to gain financial profit. By the time I got halfway through the book I felt there was a lot of repetition.

Lettie; "Others are created for love. Me, I was made for hate. Until I understand what it all means, I can only survive. Surviving is all I have been doing since I was born." I read this and similar statements by Lettie so many times throughout the book that it was starting to irritate me.

Caesar; "Loving her is so wrong, not just for me, but for Mateo too." I can't figure out why Caesar kept going back for more until I got to the worst part which made think, Enough!!!! this man is sick..(view spoiler) This is where I draw the line.

Mateo; "This isn’t supposed to happen to me. I don’t get attached to beating hearts." This guy is the sickest of the sick.

Events were moving very slow during the second part of the book and I considered not finishing it however my curiosity got the better of me. I was very disappointed the book ended with a cliff hanger. Will I read the next book? I highly doubt it!!

☆☆READ THE DISCLAIMER☆☆

I'm not kidding. Read the disclaimer, twice.

Dirty. Raw. Gritty. Emotional. This story will make you question everything you were taught when it comes to right or wrong.

I must be a sick individual for loving something so horrendously disgusting. Your boundaries are going to be pushed, thrown to the side. Do not be ashamed if you have to walk away and come back.
There are not many things that turn my stomach and keep me intrigued at the same time, this book did. Just when I thought the story would go one way, Ashleigh and Mary turned it in the other direction.
Svetlana, Caesar and Mateo will suck you into a world that that is scary, heartbreaking and deep.
Don't be afraid of the dark, Caesar is coming for you...
