Deep and Horrific

Synopsis

In 1911, Atlanta’s African American community was terrorized by a serial killer that preyed on young bi-racial women, cutting their throats and mutilating their corpses. The killer was never found. In the 1980s, more than twenty African American boys were murdered throughout Atlanta. In 2011, another string of sadistic murders have begun, and this time it’s more brutal than ever.

Carmen Mendoza, an investigative reporter working for Atlanta’s oldest newspaper. has uncovered a link between the three murder cases suggesting an unending series of murders going back more than a century. If she can solve the murders, she may find the key to ending the violent curse gripping Atlanta’s Black community. If not, she might just become the next victim.

From Wrath James White and J.F. Gonzalez comes a novel of hatred, prejudice, extreme violence and bone-chilling terror.

Content Review

I almost didn’t read this book because the description made it sound like more of a thriller than a horror novel.
It’s not.
It is a horror story. It is extreme horror. It is extreme horror with a bit of a thriller aspect.

The Killings has good characterization and is a well written story.  It has an excellent pace and a very well-developed plot. It also has a depth you rarely find in the genre that brutalizes the psyche.
Don’t be put off by the description saying it deals with hate and racism.
This is 360 degrees of hate and racism, and the evil that hate creates.

Read it.
Then look in the mirror.
I Dare You.
