ABOUT THE BOOK
This is a story about a city. As with all others, it’s a place of violence. There are murderers, and they live among us.
This is also a tale about a couple — sometimes friends, occasionally lovers, but always partners. Dan and Olivia are fighting modern battles; the ones parents have over a lack of money, time or peace.
An escalating serial killer terrifies the streets and homes. The body count rises as their relationship crumbles. Society reveals its dark side, and no one is safe. Dan and Olivia experience this first-hand as danger closes in.
Will Abel’s reign of terror ever end?
Who will live, and who will die?
Abel's Revenge by Ross Greenwood is a compelling story with relatable characters and as far removed from what I thought it would be as possible.
Told from different characters points of view, we are immediately thrown into the plot as the killer, who calls this dark predator that lives inside of him 'Abel', describes to us what happens when Abel rises up and takes control of him. When Abel is in charge, terror will unfold.
Then the story shifts to Dan and Olivia, a perfectly ordinary couple who have lost their spark and themselves in the routine of work, kids, and running the house. Dan is miserable and hates every part of his life while Olivia desperately wants the man that she loves to grow up and realise how lucky he is to have her and the kids. As their relationship continues to go downhill, they let us see the community that they live in, a community that is now living in fear as Abel begins his attacks. But who will be next???
First of all, I have to point out how eye-catching this cover is - definitely a cover that made me stop and look at it a few times. With this story, I expected a police procedural novel with the odd twist but ABEL'S REVENGE by Ross Greenwood turned this on its head and brings the reader onto the ground level, just an ordinary person living in a community that is terrified at what is happening. There are many possibilities as to who Abel could be - their sleazy next-door neighbour, or the creepy postman and over friendly milkman are just a few that immediately pop into my mind - but you always have that whisper of doubt as to who it really is. I enjoyed the fact that an ordinary couple and their struggles play a big part in this story as it makes the overall plot more relatable and believable.
ABEL'S REVENGE by Ross Greenwood is steadily paced with plenty of grit and surprises to keep you hooked from start to finish and I highly recommend it.
I was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until I was 20, attending The King's School in the city. I then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.
