Eric pulled a dagger from inside his shirt and sat down on the platform with his feet hanging off the edge. Holding the point to his neck, he said, “Since you seem to be so sure I’m the cause of all your pain, I will give you one chance to seek the revenge you lust for.” He smiled at the man. “I give you my word, I will not move.

Smashwords book reviews by Jeff Gunzel

  • Woken on Aug. 16, 2012

    I usually don't read psychological thriller type books. But this one was recommended to me so I thought I would give it a shot. All I have to say is...WOW! What a ride! This gem will have you guessing and guessing at every turn. My intent was to read about half, then finish the next day. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one shot! I never right reviews either but this story is special and just can't be passed up.

    This is a fantastic read. The book is well paced and the characters are believable. Can't wait to dive into the second.
