I think it's hard to review books without spoiling the story. But, I'm learning. To me, a great story pulls you in, tuggs at your emotions, makes you lose yourself in the Authors mind. That's what Flesh & Blood did to me. I felt Jessie's emotions with him, the grief of having to 'lose' his beloved dog, the pride in making his pa proud, confusion & terror he felt when he first saw his friend's dad, then his friend. Even the little crush he had on the neighbor girl.
I feel my review is lacking, compared to these others, and I find myself agreeing with all these - but, I'm not the writer here, Jerry is, and he did a brilliant job.
Not cluttered with a ton of back-story or unnecessary characters, Flesh & Blood was a fast read, but he made every word count. A bargain price, too!
I'd like to see a sequel - see where Jessie ends up in life & how he got there.
Volume One introduces us to Bobby.
He learned to kill at a young age, it was one of the only ways he could be close with his father. The story takes you through the highlights of his murderous career, to the exact moment he decided that this wasn’t the way he wanted to live his life anymore.
This is the first in a series that I cannot wait for more of!
There are so many possibilities, the only limit being the authors imagination. Personally, I’m hoping for the series to cover at least five different serial killers, culminating in a final novel length story – incorporating each killer highlighted in the series.
