Pray Really Tight

Many people have secrets. When your husband leaves after you lie down to sleep, what do you think he gets up to?

DIVINE DEATH by R.P. Healy is just as violent and graphic as his other stories, but the editing has finally improved. I keep returning to Healy's work like a rubbernecker to an accident. I just can't believe what I'm seeing. I return because I can see the lost potential underneath the gore.

I think Healy could write a solid crime-thriller if the author would stop focusing so much on shocking the reader with torture porn. The ending of this story is as gut-wrenching as when the killer cuts open his victim. The big reveal is the most frightening aspect of the entire story.

I really don't think I can keep reading Healy...the author's writing style is too much like A Serbian Film.

As always,
