CUT TO THE BONE By Shane Gericke

Interesting, full-blown characters and an intriguing multi-layered plot are reasons to read this novel.

Readers hear the voice of a villain called The Executioner as his victims are savagely sliced and diced by this steel-eyed killing machine with his own agenda. Two detectives, Martin Benedetti and Emily Thompson, are wound into the killer's revenge scenario. A third important "character" in the novel is the death penalty.

The novel begins and ends with scenes in the electric chair. The roller coaster ride in between will keep readers in suspense until the very last page about who lives and who dies. I found the book fascinating, disquieting, uncomfortable, but always entertaining. I really like the characters of Marty and Emily. What do you think?
