Monday Murder: Brother's Keeper
In The Shade by Jacob Stanley would make a great horror/sci-fi movie. I thought it was just going to be a murder-suspense story, but as the details were revealed, Stanley shocked me with the twisted relationship between the two brothers. Even after all the secrets are out in the open, I still couldn't have guessed the ending.
Harold took "brother's keeper" way too far...Ben should have remembered "ignorance is bliss."
If you have time for a cup of coffee, you have time for this excellent mix of genres.
