Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Gun Shy is wonderfully written, as dark as it gets, and absolutely mind blowing. Every time I thought I knew where this story was going, I really didn't because a new layer of depravity would be added to a cast of characters already filled with it. The only drawback was the attack on one person (no spoilers here) and while we know who did it, it seems to just go away without being addressed. But, even that hole didn't diminish just how good this story is. The deeper Germain goes into the hearts of these characters and what they're capable of, the more riveted I became. This is not a story for the faint hearted and there is no sunshine and roses waiting at the end of this journey. Gun Shy is about a domino effect of one cruelty leading to another and bringing out the darkest parts of the people those cruelties are visited upon. While many things between the covers of this gripping tale may cause triggers in some, this is easily one the best psychological thrillers that I've read in quite some time and one that will stay with me for some time to come.
Wow! Not very descriptive, however, this book left me feeling that way. A psychological thriller of the finest kind. The story runs a ten-year view into the lives of Cassie and Leo. Cassie and Leo are teen lovers. He is the big brother and caretaker of his siblings and addicted mother. He's also the football hero. Until a grizzly find changes him. Nine years later, he gets an early release from prison. Cassie has been doing her own caretaking while he is gone. Is there any chance they will find each other again? The author slowly leads us through the horror of the lives of this couple. There are missing girls, injured family members, those taken advantage of when they are unable to take care of themselves. Small town politics are a part of this evil story. When you turn the last page it will not be the end of the story. Your mind will wonder about -- "The Rest of the Story." Oh, it will be the end of the book, but your mind will wonder. The author shows an unbelievable talent. Did I like the book? I'm not sure you can say that about such a story. I enjoyed the talent, worried a little about a mind that goes there, and would read anything this author writes. Reviewed for Words Turn Me on
