A Broken Reality written by Rob Kaufman has made to my list of my new favourite books with genre, Mystery & Thrillers.
‘A Broken Reality‘ – a book named perfectly.
“Ten-year-old, Danny Madsen, has been missing for four days when Jesse Carlton begins his own search for his godson on a frigid, snowy night. Driving along a deserted rural road, Jesse hits a stretch of black ice at the same time Danny appears from the thicket. Unable to control the car, Jesse slams into the boy and watches helplessly as Danny’s body flies back into the dark brush.
When Jesse regains consciousness, he has no recollection of how he and his car wound up in a ditch. However, there’s a witness: Charles Hastings, the sociopathic kidnapper who chased Danny through the brush and into the path of Jesse’s car.
Hastings takes this chance to set up Jesse so he’ll take the fall for both Danny’s disappearance and death. And so the mind games begin—an onslaught of psychological manipulation that devastates Jesse, his wife, Danny’s parents and the cops’ investigation. Inexplicably, the torment continues even after Hastings is killed, leaving everyone involved on what seems to be a never-ending rollercoaster of emotions and heartbreak.”
You get to know the characters and you also get to know how sick Charles Hastings is!
I usually get annoyed by the unnecessary comic relief characters. ‘A Broken Reality’ did a good job by not annoying me.
This story isn’t predictable or too revealing. You can’t guess what is going to happen next. (At least I couldn’t.) And when the torment continues even after Hastings is killed will make you believe that.
It was amazing and worth reading. Not forgetting to mention it maintained my interest till the end.
It is a book full of emotions, heartbreak, and tragic moments.
Love suspense, mystery and thriller?
‘A Broken Reality‘ is the book just for you.
Till Then Happy Reading!
