Cruelty by Edward Lorn
On a lonely stretch of deserted Texas highway, Will Longmire breaks down. But he's not alone.
In the dead of night, Innis Blake hits someone - or something - with her car. The figure should not be getting up. But it is.
An unstoppable force is after Will and Innis. And before the night is over, both strangers will know the face of Cruelty.
Forgiveness is only a few miles down the road, but safety is nowhere in sight.
Every monster has its origins.
I have made a promise to myself that I will find the time to read some of my book purchases. So in addition to reviewing books that are soon to be published I am finally getting down to those that have waited unread on my kindle.
I have wanted to read this for quite some time, and before starting it I did not even know from the description or other reviews that it had anything at all to do with the "Dastardly Bastard" (another of my favorite Edward Lorn books) so that was a most welcome surprise.
It begins with a meth head hooker and a blind man which the author points out sounds a bit like a dirty joke, and then all hell breaks loose.
Cruelty, Regret, Forgiveness, Penance, none were what I expected, and I can't begin to describe them to you. There weren't many characters I could sympathize with but Merlo the dog stole my heart.
