    1. Human misery and suffering can come in many forms. Regardless, I've never seen it delivered in a book with such brutal realism, with such heartbreaking force. This book took me longer than usual to finish, not because it was bad, but because after only a few chapters I'd have to put it down to go play with my damn cats or watch something stupid on TV.Yeah, the book is filled with THAT much despair. Don't get me wrong I'm considering that a good thing. It's because it wasn't brought to us ham-fis [...]

    2. Full review (with slight spoilers) can be found at -I have said (since I discovered this author) that no one can bring out emotions and real issues in stories like Rick R. Reed can. Penance proves that. I've read more books than I could ever count. I have been a huge fan of horror and thrillers for as long as I've been old enough to hold a book in my hand. Of all those books, not one has affected me the way this book did. This is the most real story I have ever read and it brought out emotions i [...]

I once had to testify in the murder trial of a man who shared some traits with Morris, a trial that took place not far north of Chicago at the time the Dahmer case broke.***SPOILER***I so wished for a happier fate for Jimmy, though. For some reason, I warmed to this char [...]

    4. Stephen King endorsed the entire Dell Abyss Horror line. Here is his blurb: "Thank you for introducing me to the remarkable line of novels currently being issued under Dell's Abyss imprint. I have given a great many blurbs over the last twelve years or so, but this one marks two firsts: first unsolicited blurb (I called you) and the first time I have blurbed a whole line of books. In terms of quality, production, and plain old story-telling reliability (that's the bottom line, isn't it), Dell's [...]

    5. One reviewer says this is not for the faint of heart,at is a so true! This is poignant! wonderfully paced and masterfully suspenseful.
