Next of Kin by Elton Skelter
Superb from beginning to end!
Elton Sassafras Skelter! I’m not supposed to love people who hurt me yet every damn time I read one of your books, you do. You hurt my soul and I can’t stop reading you. NEXT OF KIN is the latest in making me weep. Jacob has a secret. A secret that has been going on for a very long time. Nathan knows about his secret and is willing to risk his life to stop Jacob. But… what happens when everything you have planned goes up in flames and all that’s left is the unknown? Elton pulls in the reader immediately with his Chandler Morrison/Bret Easton Ellis prose. And if you know me, I don’t compare anyone to Morrison. He’s elite but if someone WAS to be compared in prose and nihilistic characters, it’s Skelter. He nails it in this novel between different POV shifts and the reader’s inability to see the ending. Not a shocking star rating: A HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND 5/5.
