Small Town Evil
Publisher: Ken Berglund (February 4, 2013)
Length: 71 pages
A father and daughter are hunted by a girl they thought they had run over in their car while returning home from a weekend vacation. When the father realizes that his daughter’s condition is getting worse, and that the girl he hit may or may not even exist, he returns to the small town where he had the accident, hoping to find answers.
I just bought my Kindle Fire HD on yesterday and of course I had to check everything out, so I looked at some books in the bookstore. Small Town Evil turned out to be a pleasant find. The ebook is written by an independent author who has also written several other books including more fiction and nonfiction. As you read in the synopsis, the book is about a father and daughter who hit a little girl as they were returning home from vacation and the father sets out to find out more about the victim. This book is filled with suspense and it keeps you asking questions. I won’t consider it horror because I find it hard for horror to be a hard genre for any author (unless you’re Stefan King). It has the typical country setting, but it also has surprising twists. I do not recommend young readers to read this book because it has a lot of profanity and sexuality. …it even deals with another serious subject that I do not want to say in this post. It is definitely geared towards adults.
Small Town Evil does not stand alone. There is a second book in the series called Small Town Evil 2. Unfortunately, if you want to know what happens next, you have no choice but to buy the second book because the first book ends with the father asking a question to his daughter and you won’t know the answer if you don’t get the second book. Amazingly, the first book is only 99 cents and the second one is 99 cents as well in the Amazon bookstore. I think these books are a steal. The chapters are short, which is good for someone like me who has a short attention span. I did not find any grammar errors and misspellings in this book that I would normally find in books from independent authors, so I will recommend this book to anyone! I will be buying the second book and I will post a review of that one, too.
