WE ALL DIE IN THE END by Elizabeth Merry
RATING: ★ ★ ★ ★

If Joyce, Faulkner, and Kafka were to collaborate…

The result would be Elizabeth Merry’s We All Die in the End.

Merry’s is some of the best writing I’ve read in a while. Like Faulkner, she creates a fictional world unto its own, Faulkner’s set as a struggling Mississippi town, Merry’s as a struggling seaside town in Ireland, both populated with struggling characters with thick dialects common to their region.

RAINY SEASON – A Review by Gina Rae Mitchell

Kurt Brindley has written an excellent book in the noir romance genre. This author continues to astound me with his grasp of descriptive words. In Rainy Season, he portrays his scenes so well you will swear you can hear the rain, smell the smoke drifting from the Tokyo jazz club, and breathe in the melancholy saturating the air… – Gina Rae Mitchell

RAINY SEASON – A Review by Elizabeth Merry

I found the writing lyrical and rhythmic; words repeated making the prose like music. Indeed, I thought at one time, if I had a tune I could sing this book… – Elizabeth Merry

Review excerpt:

This book is called “Rainy Season” and rain permeates the whole novel, as if the whole story was contained inside the rain – and I loved this. Here’s a picture of Rich, leaning over his balcony as usual:

“He leaned against the rail and smoked and watched the shadowed, glistening city as it slept within the downpour.”

I found the writing lyrical and rhythmic; words repeated making the prose like music. Indeed, I thought at one time, if I had a tune I could sing this book:

“Candlelight shimmered off her black sequin dress like the promise of a million stars.”

BOOK REVIEW:

Title: The Good Kill

Author: Kurt Brindley

Date published: 2019

Published/printed by: Prosoche

Star rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

{I was graciously sent this novel by the author himself in exchange for an honest review}

What is a ‘good kill’? What is so poignant to this story is making sure that you DO NOT (I repeat: DO NOT) make a clear distinction between wrong and right. Ever since I can remember I have always believed in the shades of grey that exist within, as well as outside the realm of good and evil, and in order to understand our hero, or ‘anti-hero’ we must accept that these particular characters exist. In Kurt Brindley’s novel our protagonist and our ‘anti-hero’ is Killian Lebon, a former Navy Seal whose experiences in Iraq have left him both severally injured physically and psychologically traumatized. Medically retired from the Navy Killian must now attempt to exist…

Hello Friends.

I was given the opportunity to read “The Good Kill” written by author, Kurt Brindley. I don’t usually do book reviews on this blog, but due to Mr. Brindley generously giving me a copy to review on Amazon, I wanted to share my thoughts with any followers here on WordPress as well.

The book tells a fascinating tale, which follows the story of Killian Lebon, an ex- Navy Seal who dives head first into the dark and dirty underworld of kingpins, killers, drugs and sex trafficking.

This is a gritty read depicting a realistic and disturbing world. I would say this is not for those faint of heart, but then again…it would serve as an eye opener for the masses to realize the tragic truth of these terrible things occurring all over the world. More vigilance and awareness of the sex trafficking trade and drug cartel is needed.
