‘This is an extremely sadistic story that should only be read by the seasoned extreme-horror reader.’
Synopsis: Jake lost his wife and unborn daughter on a West Texas highway when three police officers abused their authority. The pigs thought they had got off scot-free until Jake took justice into his own hands.
First thing first – I’ve waited way too long to pick up Wade’s work. Truth? I’m the farthest thing from a book snob – we know this, but… I think that (maybe) I did judge the books by their covers at first ::cringe:: I know! It’s inexcusable! I realized I’d misjudged Wade when I read his short in Matt Shaw’s The Devil’s Guests. So, I picked up Insane Bastards right when it came out, (the synopsis sucked me right in!), and knew I had been missing out. (Dark & twisted humor gets me every time!) I went ahead and grabbed the complete “A Glimpse into Hell” series instead of picking them up one by one, and I’m glad I did because I couldn’t stop!
PIGS is an extremely satisfying story!
If you’re ever been in a situation involving the cops, you know it’s hard to remain calm, and if you’re being bullied by that superiority complex in a blue suit – your blood just boils in your helpless body. You might think you know what Jake was going through when he was pulled over while rushing his pregnant wife to the ER, but you have no idea! That shit is infuriating! I was getting pissed when I was reading, and The Dark Defender told me to be quiet – twice.
Wade’s writing goes next level sick & twisted, but… all of his torture is very original, and there are damn good stories under all the carnage! Every time I had to stop reading because life came calling I was so frustrated! Learn from my mistake, and don’t hesitate to grab anything of his. They’re all available with KU, too.
