What a neat story. Definitely had a Frailty vibe but less dark and creepy. If you like that movie then you will most likely enjoy this book, and vice versa. This story is Tarantinoed a bit, starts towards the end and then goes back, so it is full throttle from the start. With a story like this you know that there is really only one way that it should end and it is just the circumstances around it that are different. I think the saying, you either die a hero or live long enough to become the villain, is appropriate here. Either way the story is full of suspense from the start all the way through to the epilogue. My only complaint, which isn't a big one, is that the story does feel a little familiar with many other books, movies, and tv shows having a similar plot. I would have liked to have seen this story do something completely new with it and take it to a whole different level.
Rick Gregory did a great job narrating this story. He provides different voices for the characters and does a great job with it. I don't think this book would have had the same feel without him as the narrator.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

When Charlie was driving home one icy night, he lost control and crashed. 2 months later he wakes to find that not only did he lose 2 months, but he seems to have acquired a new....skill. When he touches someone he can see and feel the evil inside of them. If they have sinned, or are planning on sinning, he is forced to stop them. His first taste of it is from his nurse, when he touched her, he saw her killing patients. He feels like God is telling him to stop the evil before it's too late.
This book was so good! My heart broke for Charlie. He is a nice boy but when he has his accident, he is turned into a killer. But it doesn't feel like it's his fault. He thinks it's God that is telling him what to do and he feels like he has no choice but to stop the evil before they take an innocent life. The book may be short, but it was a powerful story and held my attention till the end.
This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last. It's a relatively short book, but it was so well written that it didn't feel short, and the fact that the author made me feel so many emotions while reading it just proved to me that I need to read more by him.
I've listened to a lot of books narrated by Rick Gregory and he always does a great job. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance here and he brought the atmosphere to life. I only had one complaint here and that's that he messed up on one or two of the male characters during the story. One man started out with an accent during a scene and by the end of it had lost it. Now it was subtle and didn't really take away from the overall narration, but I did notice it!
I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts
