Apostle Rising: A Presence Of Evil
In Apostle Rising, Richard Godwin shows an amazing ability to present an evil so real it will sneak into the reader’s reality as well as the fictional reality of Apostle Rising’s cast of characters. I’ve been reading a long time and have only rarely experienced the kind of disquiet this book produces in the reader’s mind. Don’t expect a man in a monster mask jumping from the shadows and yelling BOO! It’s not that kind of book (though one scene had that exact effect on me and I don’t scare easy). A masterful exposition of what happens inside the mind of a psychopathic killer and the minds of the police officers who have to wade through the horrific damage it wreaks on their own souls. A unique novel I shall remember for years.
