Others have recounted the plot. I simply urge others to take the chance ... read the book with an open mind and be prepared to cheer silently as "frontier justice" is played out. The ending begs the question, will there be more about Kate? I look forward to reading more by this author.
I can imagine Liam Neeson starring in a movie of this book - that's the kind of storyline. Some suspension of disbelief is required, but its the good kind and doesn't detract at all from the tale. The writing is fluid, without annoying errors and superfluous plot lines, swinging along at a sustained pace until the final showdown. Cruel as the finale is, i think most people would feel it was a fitting end to this story.
I definitely recommend this read. It's escapist and very far from the real world, but it satisfies in a dark and disquieting way.
Most authors will shy away from murdering a child outright...if they do have to do it, they avoid details. Not Mr. Borton. I'm not saying to murder a child is good, or fun to read, as a mother it was one of the hardest things I've read. It's beyond heartbreaking. It's soul crushing to read details like that. And that's what takes this book, and Mr. Borton to the next level. His writing has changed considerably from his first book, there is more confidence in the words of this story. He had me on the edge of my seat, and sometimes YELLING at HIM because he has this annoying habit of having a character come up with a plan, and then have character discuss said plan, however, those discussions are NOT TYPED IN THE DAMN BOOK. you have to wait and see.
There are some editing and grammar issues in the book, but nothing that really detracts from the story.
A couple of the characters in the book, I think, needed to have more depth to them, and the romance was thrown in there hodge podge, because Mr. Borton has fallen into the trap most authors fall into anymore. NOT ALL BOOKS NEED ROMANCE. this one would have done much better without the awkward romance in the middle, it's unnecessary, and not well thought out. The interactions that lead to the romance, especially the second scene in the pool...that's just not how it happens. Completely unbelievable.
and the ending. ... I loved the ending, don't get me wrong. But for an author who is soooo good at giving those horrible, wonderful, bloody, gory details all throughout the book...he left me hanging in the end. I wanted DETAILS, and I got a skimmed over 'after 10hours this is what is the end result' kinda thing. there's no details that happen during that time frame, if that makes sense (don't want to give any spoilers away)...other than that, incredible.
I strongly suggest watching E.E. Borton, he's going to be on the rise, and fast. I can't wait to read more of his work!
I rarely write reviews because I get mostly the free books offered on Kindle, and out of 100 books, I find maybe 4 or 5 that are really good. This is one of those! I will definitely keep an eye out for other books by this author.

Borton did not spare the brutality of the scenes, describing the worst torture anyone can imagine ever. The brutal rape and torture of a young woman and her son is so shocking it cannot even be imagined. What kind of animal could do this to another human being? Her husband and friends finds them and there is only one thing that can be done. Without knowing that his wife is recovering against all odds, Paul commits suicide and Grey their friend vows to find who was responsible. Along with a few others, revenge is well planned and very sweet.
What did I like best?
I loved that this is a fast paced, exciting story, one which both filled me with horror and morbid desire to read how revenge would be described. There is a kind of air-punching satisfaction of knowing that someone suffers the same horrors as they inflicted. Should you be worried about me? Nah, I think that many who read this book will be just as eager to have torture metered out and described in such a visual manner. Why? Well you will just have to read it and find out won’t you!
This is a book that is well written and excellently put together, not once did I get lost in the plot or the characters. Talking of characters, I loved the strength of the vulnerable Kate, the victim. I loved how Borton gives her real character that both scares and amazes those around her. It made me think about whether in the same situation would I be able to be strong enough or sick enough to exact revenge as she did? Indeed it begs the question whether it is right or wrong - okay of course it was wrong but would I tell on her - no way, my mouth stays shut.
Those men around Kate and who love her for surviving, are wonderfully strong characters, no messing about - get the job done types. Who risk their lives for her.
Anything that would have been the icing on the cake for me?
Oh yes, without giving away the plot I would have like descriptions of one mans fear and emotions……. You’ll know exactly what I mean when you read it. (Alright that is probably a bit too creepy of me.)
I now need a follow up, because hey Mr Borton you can’t just end it there for me!!
But our Kate is a real “gutsy” lady and not only does she survive but with her trusty friends and, newly inherited immense wealth, sets up home in sunny Florida. From there she spends the rest of the book plotting to seek out and find the individual who destroyed her life and family.
This is an ok read, fast and fun which unfortunately begins to get a little “wordy” and lose direction in the middle third. The violence when it happens is quite graphic and bloody and the reader soon realizes he is heading for a gore feast at the invitation of Kate in her beautiful Florida home. Will Kate survive? Will the murderer be caught? Will the reader manage to get to the end without boredom setting in?...and most importantly will the sun keep shining in Florida? And what’s on telly tonight?
If you have a few hours to pass and require a little mindless entertainment then Suffer may just be the book for you. As the title suggests I began to feel the effects of suffering the longer I read and was very pleased when Kate reached the end of her mission........
strong characters with grit and determination. I do hope that this is the first in a series of books with the same strong
characters portraying the rights of victims and fighting for them.
