Publisher's Summary

Bobby Trask is a 12-year-old kid in a bad place. His father is an abusive drunk with muddled religious views, and his mother, as hard as she tries to defend her son, only ever ends up delaying the inevitable. Things take a turn for the worse one Friday when Bobby brings home a black eye from school.
The following day his father brings him out into the woods on a mission to do "God's Work" and bring him into adulthood. A dark coming-of-age story about the sins of a father and a boy's chance to absolve himself from them.

Gruesome and Dark


Hello, the Publisher's Summary for this book is pretty detailed for a story that runs just over one hour. I don't feel that I can add too much without spoiling. This is a pretty dark and gruesome tale. I felt such compassion for Bobby Trask and the position he was in. I was rooting for him from the beginning.

This is NOT a lighthearted, fun tale. However, I 'enjoyed' (I'm not sure what the right word would be) listening to the unfolding of the story.

This book contains violence, for those of you who do not care for that.

Christian Galacar writes a very compelling and interesting work. John York does an exceptional job as narrator.

I don't want to comment further, so here is the description according to the Publisher's Summary:

Abusive darkness and it's victims

This story may be short, but it is packed full of well written scenes and scenarios that get your blood boiling and make you want to jump into it and help its protagonist. If you like well written short stories, then this one is worth your time.

I was given this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review.
