Cruelty: Episode Three (Cruelty #3) - Edward Lorn

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


Episode Three takes us back a bit to give us an idea of who John Landover is and how he’s connected. I’m glad because that loose end was bugging me a bit.


The investigation proceeds with Trooper Holden and SI Markum leading the charge.


Trooper Morgan is still in surgery and his wife, Nell is introduced.


Innis is still in Hell. I can’t revisit that, so I’m not gonna.


Will is in danger from more than Cruelty, but he doesn’t know it yet. He heads out to see what is up with Kirk and why he’s in the hospital.


Ending this episode with Cruelty’s POV was diabolical. All I can do is shudder and shudder some more.


Layer upon layer this picture is growing like a giant painting being laid out on a once white canvas, the creepy spine-tingling-lose-bladder-control kind of picture that can’t be unseen. I’m not sure I want to see the next layer, yet I know I won’t be able to resist continuing. I will want to know what happens even if it means running the risk of nightmares. Bring it!
