it was amazing

Apostle Rising is akin to King’s Children of the Corn. Only with noir. Whiskey. Knives. Politicians. And a hell of gore. It is a maze through a psychopath’s mind, only you get to solve the puzzle with Detectives Castle and Stone as they try to hold their own personal lives together while the killer(s?) tease and taunt through horrific killings and rituals. My favorite character in the book is poetic, mentally disturbed and has an obsession with King Henry VIII and the first wife whose head he chopped. The ending is a fast paced rollercoaster ride. It sews together all the clues Godwin builds up through the book and will have you banging your fist on the table saying why didn’t I guess who was behind it all! I dare you to give the labyrinth of Apostle Rising a shot. I’m a fan of Godwin’s and I want more.
