THE KILLING OF FAITH – NEW REVIEW FROM REEDSY! Get your copy on Amazon!
A fast-paced thriller with an ending you won’t expect. It will leave you wanting more.
SYNOPSIS The Killing of Faith by William Holms starts with our narrator, Faith, introducing the book in a simple fashion. However, as the story progresses the plot hits the ground running. You think you know where the book will end up, but trust me, you won’t.
Faith is a mother who is down on her luck and done with love. She is a woman many readers can relate to; an unhappy marriage, three children, and filled with frustration and heartbreak. Despite all of this, she eventually finds love again and Faith is swept off of her feet by a new man.
We’ve all read a tale that begins similar to this, but the distinctive trait for Faith’s chronicle is the dark turn it takes. A word of caution, this book is not a light read but it is a fantastically, dark journey into twists and turns you will not expect. The author creates a vivid world filled with sex, shadows, and the insidious recesses of the human psyche.
“When I started writing my story, I had no idea it would be this hard. I thought being a single mother was hard but really it was a joy. Now I can only dream of those days. After Paul and I broke up, I thought I had hit rock bottom but I had no idea what rock bottom really looks like. Even at the lowest points in my life, I never once considered suicide. Now, sitting in this hellhole, all I think about is killing myself.”
Faiths depression can be difficult to read at times, and I do suggest anyone suffering from depression take heed. The Killing of Faith doesn’t pull any punches. If you are looking for a twisted thriller similar to Gillian Flynn or Stieg Larsson then look no further. Holms creates a fascinating psychological thriller that you will not be able to put down.
