Soul Hostage by Jeffrey Littorno Review ~Kami

Soul Hostage


Two men, Joey and Thomas are robbing a store for $266. An old man watches and giggles at the antics of the thieves. The old man, Louis is very strange, Joey is crazy and Thomas just follows along with Joey, even though he doesn't seem to be all that bad. Louis starts telling the pair a story. The story building is really good, the pacing is good, the characters are interesting. You aren't sure in the beginning what is going on or what is going to happen. The suspense and feelings of uncertainty are very palpable making this an interesting read that hooks you from the beginning and holds your attention. This story reads like a Stephen King story. It also reminded me of the movie The Usual Suspects where you don't know what is really going on until the end. 4 stars
