Content Review

Stitches is a fast-paced and intense horror thriller from Steven Stacy and Kevin J Kennedy.  I read this novella in one sitting. Once you start it, you can’t just stop. It is compelling, sexy, gruesome, and disturbing.

Back in my modeling days—don’t ask—I had a fear of stalkers, and it was a stalker that ultimately made me walk away from modeling. This story hit home for me. And I know what you might be thinking: two men writing about three female models, it has to be stereotyped at best. Surprisingly, no, it is not. The characters are well presented and three dimensional, and the story flows really well.

Don’t let the simplified synopsis fool you. This story has substance. I can only imagine writing a synopsis blurb without spoilers is difficult for this story.

I enjoyed this story. If you like horror thrillers, I think you would too.
