I was given a copy of the book in return for an honest review

Three friends since grade school, one of whom is a psychotic killer determined to make the other two pay for the perceived wrongs he suffered at their hands.

John, David and Emily have been close friends for years. Both John and David are in love with Emily although David’s idea of love is a strange one to say the least.

John is a police detective investigating a horrific double murder. The further he digs the more he believes David is responsible and he and Emily are dragged into David’s weird and dangerous mind games. David is a very sick and scary character, totally evil with no remorse for his actions.

John and Emily’s nightmare is only just beginning.

Thoughts

This is a chillingly disturbing tale of how a particular upbringing can shape a life. How a childhood living in fear and pain can affect the psyche in terrible ways. It’s also about friendship and loyalty. How much can a person take from someone they thought of as a close friend before the bonds of that friendship are broken irrevocably.

If I have one niggle it’s that two of the main protagonists’ stories are told in the first person. I found it a little disconcerting  jumping from one to the other but that’s just my personal view. Apart from that it’s a well crafted story full of tension and suspense. 

Blind Evil may be purchased at Amazon UK and Amazon US
