“Forty year old Preston Peterson, pudgy, myopic and socially inept, knows the terror of being bullied. From his earliest childhood memory, he has faced ridicule, name calling, harassment and beatings. Fear ruled his life, possessed him, controlled his every encounter with others.
Now, he has killed.
Now, rage rules his life.
Digging out his despised High School year book, Preston uses computer aged photographs to find and kill look-alikes of his persecutors.
The time has come for those who bullied him to pay the ultimate price for their torture.
Preston is getting even and everyone is a target.
But with a panicked city and Lieutenant Gregg Mann’s task force looking for him, Preston should have remembered the Chinese proverb, “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig TWO GRAVES.”” via Goodreads
Bullying takes on a new persona in this book. I was hooked from page one of this thriller. Preston Peterson’s character is wonderfully choreographed into a demented psychopath hell bent on seeking revenge from past mistreatment by his classmates.
The numerous plot lines had me questioning what they had to do with the story, but by the end of the book it all made sense. They all melded together beautifully. There’s just enough horror portrayed to paint a pretty gruesome picture without going into too great of detail. The characters were well thought out. Needless to say, I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout this novel. I will go as far to say that the end is not at all what I was expecting.
Graystone will most definitely go on my list of ‘must read’ authors for this genre.
