Publisher's Summary

Luther Biggs had almost hated his father; he was not only cruel to Luther, he was cruel to animals too. He used to tell Luther stories about when he was a lot younger and had a few beers in him he would catch stray cats and tie their tails together and hang them over a clothesline and watch them claw each other to death. Or he and his old drinking buddy, Lukas Bradley Sr. would hold a cat down and shove a firecracker up its ass and light the fuse and watch the poor creature run away into the woods howling and then all of a sudden BOOM! The firecracker would explode and then just dead silence. And now Luke Bradley Jr. had taken over his late father's practice of terrorizing the local kids and animals. Luke Bradley. Most people thought he was just stupid, but he wasn't stupid. He was crazy. That was the fascination of hanging out with him, even if you could get hurt in his company. He did wild things that no one else dared even think about. He was just someone for whom the rules, all of the rules, simply did not apply. But tonight, Luther was going to make sure the rules did apply, by kidnapping Luke Bradley Jr. and making him atone for his sins by treating him just like he'd treated Luther in school - and the way he had treated the animals.

Torture and cruelty abound

The description of the book had me thinking of some avenging force for justice. What I found was a demented and tortured main character and his allies and enemies. A history of Satan worship, blood sacrifice, murder and deviant sexual behaviors including necrophilia. It has its moments but I felt it was lacking. I couldn't connect to the characters and have any empathy for them or their journey through the story. I applaud anyone who writes and gets published however this story was not one for me. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review

Son like Father

This book is a very dark and horrific psychological thriller. It explains the demented bullied youth of Luther as well as some satanic rituals. Worth the short listen. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Thank you.
