Smitherd's tale takes you on a wild ride, keeps your heart pumping, your breathing rapid as you go through the pain and torture that Chris must endure to save those girls. The story is told as a journal that Chris writes after the events have ended. As such, there is a lot of backstory told mixed with present moments.
These characters - Chris, the Man in White and Klaus - are well-detailed, full and rich. You cheer for Chris' success, learn to cringingly admire Klaus, and desperately hate all that the Man in White stands for. Smitherd also has an excellent grasp of setting, creating detailed locations to work his plot around. And that plot, from beginning to end, has twists that will frustrate and empower you as a reader. It is the final twist at the end of the book though that will leave unanswerable questions in your mind - If this had been you, given the choices that Chris had been given, what would you have done? What would you do next? How do you want your story to end?
As with all of Smitherd's books, you are always left curious. His work is edgy, outside the box and definitely worth reading. I highly recommend Kill Someone for thrill-seekers who like that psychological edge.
This story gives a roundabout answer to the question "Why does a person stay with an abusive partner?"
Chris could have quit at any time. The man in white, not Chris, would be 100% responsible for the harm to the sisters.
My favorite part of the story is when Chris is working at the call centre and his boss comes to talk with him. We are inside the boss's head as he tries to deal with Chris. The author seemed to be channeling the style of Stephen King for a few pages, and it worked.
The story bogged down a few times. Some of the tangents weren't necessary and didn't add any color to the story for me.
The ending took me by surprise. It was a clever way to wind up the tale.
I liked Chris from the start, which is very important to me. If I dislike the main character I will rarely waste my time reading. I loved the memory with his father, where he got caught going out instead of just going to his friend's house. His father was, in that brief moment, quite lovable. It didn't hit me until after i finished the book, though, that that scene was significantly more meaningful than it seemed at the time.
Definitely going to look for more of Smitherd's work.
What do you do?????
Chris Summer makes the mistake of answering his door when the man in white comes knocking. Come along on his journey as he tries to do what is right. Could you do what he does??
Suspenseful, heart pounding, twists and turns .... Spookishly delicious.
Luke Smitherd at his finest.
