Sour Candy – Kealan Patrick Burke ★★★★

Blurb; At first glance, Phil Pendleton and his son Adam are just an ordinary father and son, no different from any other. They take walks in the park together, visit county fairs, museums, and zoos, and eat together overlooking the lake. Some might say the father is a little too accommodating given the lack of discipline when the child loses his temper in public. Some might say he spoils his son by allowing him to set his own bedtimes and eat candy whenever he wants. Some might say that such leniency is starting to take its toll on the father, given how his health has declined.

What no one knows is that Phil is a prisoner, and that up until a few weeks ago and a chance encounter at a grocery store, he had never seen the child before in his life.

My Review; This is another short horror of a read at 75 pages. My second book by this author. As I read Blanky before this one I went in knowing his level of horror and I much preferred this one to blanky. This one really messed with my mind! I was like woah. Okay. What just happened? How? Why? Honestly messed with my mind. I devoured this in just over an hour. I was gripped! Tense. Fast paced. Mind boggling. Suspense. Edge of your seat read. Twisted. You just didn’t know what would happen next. A brilliant read! A well deserved four stars. This is my favourite by him so far.
