‘Abel’s Revenge’ was published as an eBook on the 25th March 2018 and is also available in paperback. Having read and reviewed Ross Greenwood’s last book I was thrilled to be invited to take part in this blog tour. I would like to thank both Caroline Vincent who organised this tour and Ross Greenwood for my review copy of his book.
This story is set in a city, London to be precise. Like any other place, there’s violence. There are murderers who live amongst us.
This is also a tale about a couple who are sometimes friends, occasionally lovers, but always partners no matter what happens. Dan and Olivia are fighting everyday battles; the ones parents have over a lack of money, time or peace.
Meanwhile an escalating serial killer is terrifying the streets and homes. As the body count rises their relationship crumbles. Society reveals its dark side and it seems no one is safe. Will Abel’s reign of terror ever end or will it get worse?
I loved the sound of ‘Abel’s Revenge’ and was really looking forward to reading it. This is the second of Ross Greenwood’s books that I have read. I really do like his style of writing. The short chapters made the story all the more exciting and left me dying to know what was going to happen next.
The chapters are narrated mainly by the main characters; Abel, Dan and Olivia. There are two different storylines. There’s the serial killer who commits some absolutely horrendous crimes and then there’s Dan and Olivia who are going through a rough time.
I liked the dark humour in this story. There was also quite a bit of toilet humour which might not be to everyone’s taste. Dan and Olivia are an everyday flawed normal couple who are having a few ups and downs. There’s never enough money or time to do everything. Having children also means they don’t get much peace. Dan has a nervous breakdown and is signed off work for months and from then on his relationship with Olivia seems to get worse. In the meantime, Abel is roaming the streets, terrorising and torturing people. He’s out for revenge and he’ll do what he can to rid the city of vermin. Who needs dealers and pimps anyway.
That ending! I never in a million years expected to read what I did. It left me really quite shocked.
‘Abel’s Revenge’ is gripping and exciting and will leave you wanting more.
Thanks for a fabulous read, Ross. You are fast becoming one of my favourite authors and I await your next book eagerly.
I give this book 5 out of 5.
