Meet Crystal and Harry – lovers who work in the entertainment business: after murdering three critics for poor reviews, they decide to skip town and head for the coastline.

What a Horrific, Yet, Entertaining Read!

David Owain Hughes is a new to me author and most definitely has my attention, this won't be my last read either.

I knew this was an Extreme Horror story, but, I did not expect to be as entertained by unexpected twists and such gruesome turns! This book kept me at the edge of my seat from page one. The author definitely has the knack for strategically placing plot pivots at just the right time. Bravo!!

The characters, Harry and Crystal are well developed, likable, unlikable, and believable. The banter back and forth had me rolling at times, then it would upset my apple cart, so to speak. I never knew what Mr. Hughes was gonna picturesquely portray, so it definitely kept me intrigued.

If you like Extreme Horror this is a story for you!
