Underneath - Michael Cargill

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.


From Goodreads:

Look at the person sitting just across from you. It doesn't matter whether they’re a loved one, a friend, or a complete stranger.


Now look at their face. Are they happy? Are they sad? Or are they angry? Can you even tell?


How well do you actually know the people closest to you?


Have you ever seen the real person that lies just underneath what you see...?


This is a pretty strange story. Hugh, the main dude, is totally unlikeable. I mean, he’s really an asshole. Yikes. There is absolutely nothing to like about him. I’m serious. He is interesting though. Weird, I know.


Robert and Clare are two police officers who are unintentionally following Hugh around. They’re answering disturbance calls about Hugh, but they don’t know who he is or even that these calls are all about the same guy.


The parallel stories are what’s interesting about this tale. As much as I hate Hugh, I kept reading to see if Clare and Robert ever catch up to him. And I have to say the ending is…wow!
