it was amazing
Read in April, 2009

I decided to read Afraid based on the fact it was written by Jack Kilborn, AKA J.A. Konrath. I’m a big fan of his Jaqueline "Jack" Daniels series, so I figured it was a safe bet that Afraid wouldn’t suck. However, I was apprehensive. I just never enjoy any book or movie about covert ops, government/military cover-ups, rogue soldiers/scientists, or the like. Yawn-o-rama. OK...full disclosure is over.

Afraid was incredible! Gripping, fast-paced, absolutely frightening, and beyond gory (um, whoa!). I got sucked in on the first page and didn’t come up for air until the end. I rarely use this phrase, but I this is a well crafted piece of work!

As long as you can handle the gore, I recommend reading Afraid. Just don’t do it while your loved ones are out of sight...or, heaven forbid, at a Town Hall meeting ;)
