Kill Your Brother by Jack Heath was an impressively complex story despite it being on the shorter side of novel lengths. It is just as predictable as its title yet surprisingly unpredictable. I was impressed with the author’s ability to take a single incident and turn it into a complex psychological thriller with many facets of surprise.
Elise is looking for her brother Callum. She seems to be the last person willing to think that Callum has done anything wrong. But Elise has a reputation which leads to problems of her own. She doesn’t have a support system and is financially tapped so looking for Callum has got be creative and done alone.
Elise does find Callum but the only way to save herself means sacrificing her brother. She has a lot to think about and needs to determine if her brother is worth it all.
I gave this story 5 out of 5 stars for its complexity and plot development. I was surprised by the twists and turns and even more blown away with the author’s ability to take one question and incorporate a variety of convoluted characters keeping the reader guessing and surprised to the end.
