Joe O’Hara was a normal family guy. Working the night shift as a security guard, all he wanted to do was to provide for his family. That was until he was involved on a fatal accident with a biker, then all he wanted to was to feed his addiction.
As you are reading this story, you are following Joe as he struggles to come to terms with the accident. Unable to sleep and the images playing through his mind, most people would go and see a counsellor and talk through his issues , Joe has an usual way

This is one of the most brutal and disturbing things I have ever read and I kept trying to run away from it. Several times I found myself scared to find out what was going to happen next. McCluskey’s combination of unpredictability and ominous foreshadowing creates a consuming tension and building dread.

CRACK is listed as psychological horror, which it most certainly is, however, the brutality and graphic content pushes the envelope into the realm of extreme horror as well. Additionally, the edg

What can I say about this book. Firstly I should say I'm extremely desenitised, and this book, it's something else. It's gory, but not just gory for the sake of it, it progresses the story well, so that's my warning out of the way.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!! so I'm not doing spoilers, that drive me insane, but I will say this, the author has the rare gift to be able to write well and also spin a good yarn, ( trust me they are two different skills ) The characters are so three dimensional and you feel l

I read most of this in one sitting. The author is a gifted storyteller, painting the character of a normal guy-gone-horribly-wrong so effectively that at no point did I disbelieve. It all starts so credibly, with a hellish freak accident where the main character's car kills a motorcyclist who had lost control of his vehicle. There was nothing Joe could do, but in what he did, his life changes forever - unfortunately so do the lives of his future victims. An original and relatively new voice in h ...more

This was an amazing read. It had a bit of everything I like in a book.
A bit of extreme with gore mixed with a dose of reality.
The book follows the main character Joe and his life after being in a brutal car accident.
Doctors and medications was not enough to help him cope.
He seeks out ways of his own to ease his troubled mind, and it soon becomes a addiction that spirals quickly out of control. The more he gives into it the more he needs to get any peace.
This book was a roller coaster and I felt

Great read and another you will find hard to put down. Fantastically written and such a out there concept. The way that one accident can change a mans life so much and such a different way to show addiction, not your normal drink or drugs. DE McCluskey is defiantly an up and coming writer to keep an eye out for. He will go far.

Not usually my preferred book genre, but must say I genuinely really enjoyed this. Unexpected ending...couldn't decide if I was rooting for the main character to recover or couldn't stand him and wanted him to get his taste of karma.

Currently reading the next book by this author and thoroughly enjoying it 😁

This is a brilliant dark and twisted story. It gripped from the start and is very well written with relatable, engaging characters and an original, imaginative plot. Its the first McCluskey book I've read but won't be the last. Very addictive as the name suggests!

A great (and shocking!) plot that surprises all the way to the end.
