I have been wanting to read Rhys Ford for quite awhile and so I downloaded this book the other day. I am so happy that I did, I couldn’t put the darn thing down. Last night I had to quit because I was so darn tired, but the first thing this morning I picked it right up and finished it.
I am going to start at the end and then go back to the beginning. If you want to read this book as a stand alone stop reading at the end of Chapter 21 where you come across the excerpt of the poem -The Consuming of Me. The book will leave you satisfied and you could tuck it away and have memories of what a great story you just had the privilege of reading. Now then if you want an EXCEPTIONAL Cliffhanger for what the next book may be about go ahead and finish out the last few pages, it quite literally floored me, but not in a bad way, I cannot wait to read the next book.
Miki St. John has had a rough life, in the Foster care system. Physically and Sexually abused and just when his life is going good a car accident that kills all of his band mates (his family). Miki’s life sucked he became a recluse in his factory apartment. He meets one of his neighbors a cop Kane Morgan a ruddy handsome man, here we go again things are looking up. Alas, now what is Miki going to do when a dead body is found in his car, body parts show up on his doorstep and they are thrown through his front window. Can Miki face more demons and can he do it with Kane? Is Kane his saviour or could he possibly be the other half of Miki that has been missing?
Rhys Ford gives us a great mystery that was thoroughly enjoyable to read. The dark parts of the story were not overbearing so as the reader I never felt really sad, I was more excited to find out what happened when I turned the next page. Now don’t forget what I said about the ending of this book. Just so you know I read it all the way through and cannot wait to read book 2.
