Smashwords book reviews by Steve Wands

  • Blood Brothers on Sep. 21, 2011

    Blood Brothers is hands-down Latch's best work to date. I really love how he handles horror, but his grasp on what makes a good thriller is evident in Blood Brothers. It cuts back and forth from past to present continually forcing you to turn the page. The characters are very complex and given that you're reading the characters as they are and as they were you can't help but wonder how they came to be. A kid you pity turns into a prick that you can't help but like and his boyhood best friend is cold and menacing blast from the past that threatens to ruin his life and family. All the while the reader is trying to put the pieces together as Latch twists the story to it's climax leaving no stone unturned. Keith Latch is quite simply becoming a force to be reckoned with and Blood Brothers is a testament to that.
