Too bad I did not read this one before Suzi's second book as I had to put my brain in reverse in order to put it all together. A valid and essential predecessor for the Devil's Lieutenant indeed. When you really think about it, it is not so far fetched as you might think to be accountable and pay your dues for past indiscretions. As Bill and Karina can well attest to getting ready to become crispy critters in a coffin heading for their largest and last barbecue. This book will have you looking over your shoulder wondering when Mr. Ivanovitch will come looking for you with a contract in his translucent claw. Only two things I can advise on. Don't sign the contract and read Suzi Albracht's books !!

Though I devoured this one, it sticks to my memory as if I had studied it for a test. Truly memorable, and gripping. Suzi bends a few of the "accepted" rules with this one, but she does it in such a way that you laugh after you finish, and wonder why those rules are there in the first place.

The characters are well developed, even a bit over developed at times. This makes the twists and turns hidden in the plot even more unexpected. I can remember at least 3 occasions where I thought the story was about to wrap up, yet all it was doing was giving me a chance to gulp down a lungful of air before taking off again at full speed.

It is a short read, I believe somewhere in the novella category, which means there is a ton of information packed into the work. Yet, the length works for the story, not against it. Set in modern day (or close there to), the described scenes are rich and vibrant. The plot will have you laughing, groaning, and ready to slap the main characters silly - all these emotions within paragraphs of each other.

I can't wait to see what a full length novel will be like from this author, and will be purchasing "The Devil's Lieutenant" ASAP.

“Scorn Kills” by Suzi Albracht grabbed my attention with the first sentence and held it throughout this book. A somewhat tongue in cheek examination of man’s weakness when it comes to women and money (not necessarily in that order) Albracht created a character I wanted to smack in the head. From the beginning Bill Branch is obviously an opportunist. I liked him and almost felt sorry for him when he first became entangled in the web of lies he spun. But as the story unfolded I began to lose patience with good old Bill. Without giving away too much I will say I had very little sympathy for him at the end. He is never satisfied with what he has and always seems to be looking for something better. His well to do wife has secrets of her own that make the story even more compelling. The ending was a surprise I didn’t see coming. If this story has a moral it might be “when you sell your soul to the devil, expect to get burned”.

How can I not like a story that begins with a guy waking up in a coffin…underneath someone else’s body? I mean, this guy has some major concerns, right? And that’s how I got hooked on Albracht’s story about William Branch – a husband, father and writer of true crime novels – who decides to cheat on his wife with a beautiful grade school teacher. The problem is, he can’t keep his hands off her, which is in violation of a blood-contract he once signed with his father-in-law. Yeah, big oops. Albracht does a great job in bringing this story along, step-by-creepy step, to a great ending. I really enjoyed it. Now I have to read her follow-up, The Devil’s Lieutenant.

What I liked most about this book is the main character's snappy attitude, outrageous motivation and wacky inner dialog. There were less than a half dozen well-drawn characters, and each character's motivation, problems and actions were easy to follow which made SCORN KILLS a quick, enjoyable read. I don't want to drop any spoilers, but can't resist saying that the main character is a really lovable jerk (and 'jerk' is being polite)! I know this doesn't make sense but it's true. The main character is simply up to no good, but he's telling you the story while he's doing it and his inner thoughts and foibles are often hilarious. He rationalizes his outrageous actions in such a way that I started to like him. Or . . . maybe I didn't really like him but I really enjoyed going along for the ride while he got himself into deeper and deeper trouble. Shakespeare wrote, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" but I don't think Shakespeare meant it as a joke!

WOW! This book is a fast paced thriller/horror that kept me turning pages...just HAD to see what would happen next. Ms. Albracht nailed the first person narrative. "Scorn Kills" is a tale of the pit falls of betrayal...how it affects every person involved...how karma comes back to clear the records as the story takes you to the shocking end! I really don't want to get near putting out a "spoiler" so I can't say much more about the details of this story line. What I can say is... It's exciting, very well written, so true to real life. You'll experience a range of emotion as you get involved with each character. And you'll never look at people, or life, in the quite the same way again. Now I'm moving on to get "Devil's Lieutenant" .
