Even after reading the blurb to this book I did not expect the chilling ride this story would take me on.
The story flicks between three people, Obadiah Stark himself, Joe a reporter who has become quite obsessed with Obadiah and Dr John Franklin who assessed Obadiah and his part in the book is through his reports.
Hellbound mainly being about a serial murderer there is some quite chilling and gruesome parts in this book yet it did not turn me off, it dragged me even further into the hell that Obadiah has found himself in.
This story really is worth reading, it is a brilliant book that you lose yourself to and has you feeling a mixture of emotions that I really was not expecting to feel. Joe is very much everything you would expect from a good reporter, he is very inquisitive and goes very much with his gut feelings. Obadiah is a character
that I really should hate yet by the end I had very mixed emotions. I have no idea whether I was supposed to or not but by the end there was definitely some empathy towards to him.
This is the first book I have read by this author and after reading Hellbound it certainly will not be the last.
I really enjoyed Hellbound. It was so completely unique and had my brain in a bit of a tizz. I alternated between thinking either Obadiah is in the afterlife or something really freaky is going on. As Obadiah relives the same day over and over again (which to some would be punishment enough) you can feel him gradually becoming more human and less killer as he forms an attachment to his family. As Joe's investigation gets closer to uncovering the truth, Obadiah's real punishment is ready to be doled out.
This is a book that you definitely can't stop thinking about or talking about long after you've finished it. There are so many moral and ethical questions to dissect and discuss. Hellbound has given me a cracking moral question to mull over and discuss over a few beers: is one death adequate punishment for taking 27 innocent lives? I think not.
Hellbound is intelligent and unique; I will definitely be adding the prequel, In Extremis, to my kindle without delay!

Evil has a new face in author David McCaffrey's sensational novel, "Hellbound." This book is a thrilling tale that explores both the complex mind
of a serial killer and the effects he has on the world.
The story follows Obadiah Stark, aka "The Tally Man", a ruthless serial killer who is facing execution at ADX Absolom, a desolate prison similar
to Alcatraz. With the witnesses present and an eager journalist who's followed The Tally Man's long career as a killer, Stark is put to death,
but journalist Joe O Connell finds some odd things that make the execution come into question. Soon he begins to uncover secrets while looking
into the mind of the killer that will bring the execution into a whole new light. Meanwhile, Stark awakens to find himself in a whole new world.
Expecting oblivion after his death, he learns he's back in his childhood hometown, with a wife and child and a whole new life he has no memory
of. After rejecting this life and going on a viscous killing spree, (ending with a police shootout that claimed his life), Stark reawakens to
find the day has reset, and this new life has restarted for Stark again. After the day repeats over and over again, Stark is forced to examine
himself and face the grim reality of the dormant emotions that reside within him.
This is a unique thriller that takes readers on a exciting journey to discover the true meaning of justice, morality, and evil. Part horror
story, part conspiracy thriller, the alternating POV's between Joe and Obadiah offer a great view on both sides of the story, from both the
eyes of the journalist fighting to learn the truth to the eyes of a demented killer getting in touch with his humanity. The author has created
a fun world that easily conjured up a cinematic feeling, like this was something I could watch on television today. With a twist ending that
leaves readers wanting to delve deeper into the world of this story, Hellbound is a fantastic read that everyone should read today. Be sure to
pick up your copy of David McCaffrey's "Hellbound" today!
