I agree with another reviewer that the less we know about the “bad guys” the better. Especially in a situation where he/it is constantly terrorizing the “good guys/gals.” It may make some readers lose a certain amount of fear or suspense since they already know who’s coming.
On the other hand, Edward writes his characters with such Edwardism (that’s realism E. Lorn style) that their emotions seem palpable. Edward excels at this. I’m cool with this trade.
The story started off with Will, a deaf guy, going to see a prostitute. Things don’t go as planned and his getaway sets the stage for the chaos that ensues as he’s pursued by an enemy that should not exist.
This is a serial, but Mr. Lorn has put them out pretty darn fast.
I will definitely be reading the next one! A recommended read for fans of action, gore and dare I say B movies.

About Edward Lorn

Edward Lorn is an American horror author presently residing in the southeast United States. He enjoys storytelling, reading, and writing biographies in the third person.

Once upon a time, during a session of show and tell, a seven-year-old Edward Lorn shared with his class that his baby brother had died over the weekend. His classmates, the teacher included, wept while he recounted the painful tragedy of having lost a sibling. Edward went home that day and found an irate mother waiting for him. Edward’s teacher had called to express her condolences. This was unfortunate, as Edward had never had a baby brother.

With advice given to her by a frustrated teacher, Edward’s mother made him start writing all of his lies down. The rest, as they say, is history.

Edward Lorn and his wife are raising two children, along with a handful of outside cats and a beagle named Dot. He remains a liar to this day. The only difference is, now he’s a useful one.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.
