Two Graves by D. A. Graystone
D. A. Graystone
Two Graves forces us to think the unthinkable, to face the nightmare, and we get to choose whose side we’re on. Not for the feint hearted.
He was bullied all his life. But now he has killed. Now he is getting even and everyone is a target.
But with Lieutenant Gregg Mann’s task force looking for him, he should have remembered the Chinese proverb, “Before you set out on a journey
of revenge, dig Two Graves.”
Review by H. L. Van Zyl:
From the very first word, I was intrigued. I caught myself not blinking for fear of missing something. Two Graves is excellently written and keeps one on one’s toes.
Throughout the novel the characters are developed in such a way that the reader can identify with each character, including the killer. The author includes enough detail to paint a vivid picture, but does not bombard his reader and the crime scenes are excellently described, as if the reader is there.
This novel contains an intricate plot, with interwined characters, seemingly innocent coincidences and twists and turns where one least expects it, and it is exactly this that makes it such a good read.
Two Graves is a fast-paced thriller, touching on many taboos in society, the cruelty of people and the effects thereof. It forces us to think the unthinkable, to face the nightmare, and we get to choose whose side we’re on. Not for the feint hearted.
Review by Zoe Saadia:
The memories of being bullied would not always fade away. Some people may nourish their rage and frustration until they snap. Such was the case with Preston Peterson and his warpath of revenge is chilling and breathtaking.
Reading this well-written novel, I felt like watching a good movie/thriller, horrified but unable to stop. I just HAD to find out what will happen and the tension kept mounting. I’m not into detective novels, but this one gripped me so firmly, I knew I was hooked from the very beginning. The well developed characters, their diversity and depth, the delightfully flowing language, the rich descriptions; all of those did the trick, keeping me on my toes up to the very end of this story.
They say `When you set out on revenge, dig two graves.’ Well, I’m afraid in this particular book two would be definitely not enough.
A highly recommended read!
