I enjoyed reading this book. Although the topic is not fresh, there were interesting twists to keep the reader turning the page.

Loved it. I found this book first and then read all the others by this author.

This book was free, had 335 pages and was 90% correct on editing. There was some cursing, bullying, child abuse, child sexual abuse, wife abuse, torture, cursing on a moderate scale, gay bashing and sterotyping, sodomy, rape and very detailed violence and murder. I can understand the anger and why the suicide was commited. The first murder, might have been propable. A lot of the problems experienced by the two brothers could have been avoided if they had taken their evidence and problems to the police. As it stands, no one was helped in anyway by their actions, no one was protected or able to get any kind of couseling or medical help, and their own lives were ruined. As for the abused wife, if she had pressed charges, her husband would have been in jail and the problems she caused would have been lessened and her husband would have been unable to find her or her friends. Abused wives should prosecute and then hide. There are safe places to go for protection. The detective made me angry, his, "I don't really care attitude," at the end made me angry. This book was unbelievable on so many levels, but the violence could have happened. Not chick lit. It reminds of the Sandusky coaching scandal in Indiana. But that scandal did not contain the violence, murder or bad choices made by victims as dipicted in this novel. Perhaps this was rooster lit more than chick lit, or written for less analytical minds. For adults due to content and gore. AD

Really great book. Although the beginning is very graphic, it goes on to explain why. Very hard to put down.

I really liked this book. The author really did well in creating each of these boys, and it was this part that I really liked. The story had a great pace, and I liked how the two storylines finally came together. Great read.

Very disturbing topics throughout the book but good character and plot development. Poor police work and poor choices by many characters. Still kept my interest and I would read more from this author.

The writing is good, the story fast paced, the main characters likable, and the intertwining plot lines engaging, making it hard to put down. Yet, I found the story extremely disturbing and unsettling. There is sexual abuse, extreme spousal abuse, a very gruesome murder, long sadistic torture, suicide, and lots of fighting. Many of the good characters make bad choices, which lead to bad consequences, yet their decisions, while unfortunate, are completely understandable. The police investigation is not nearly as believable, and is the weakest part of the story. I'd probably give this a 4-star rating if the horrors weren't so extreme and so graphically described. JB

This was a very good read. Many twists and plots that came together well. You get to know the characters and how they feel and why they did what they did. The chapters easily slid from one polnt to another. My only problem was some unanswered questions. What happened to Tommy and Jason? Did they serve a long sentince or released after a few years to become sucessfull young men? What happened to Doogie and did he get what he deserved? Also what about Sarah and Dean? They seemed attracted to each other so did a romance happen? Maybe the author wants the reader to fill in those questions but I would have liked to know. Overall a good read and I will read more by this author.

This book kept me engaged all the way through. First the suicide, and then the murder of the parents, which was quite horrid and graphic, happens fairly quickly in the book. This kept me quite interested from the start and wanting more. Sarah flees from her abusive husband, and I could easily sympathize with her actions. And she was right to fear him, as we see his dark side emerge as the book progresses. He becomes darn right scary. The real story is the journey the boys take to solve their problem (I won't give that away) and what obstacles cross their path along the way. I liked this story very much, but when it was over, a part of me wanted more, as if the story was not quite finished. Maybe it isn't, and maybe that's just life. A good read overall.
