925 by AEmilius-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date February 6, 2015
Delve deep into the minds of a CIA agent avenging the death of his MI6 partner, the serial killer that did it, and the serial killer’s son, who’s out to make a killing of his own to set his father up for failure. Highly suspenseful and thrilling, 9•2•5 resonates as an at times psychotic tale of revenge. Gregory Belittled breaks from his nine-to-five life by making a fortune coming up with an anti-skimming mechanism for the Bank of Las Vegas and uses it to buy everything he needs to take his father down.
REVIEW: 925 is a murder mystery storyline written by AEmilius focusing on a serial killer (the door to door killer) in Las Vegas, Nevada. When a number of people are found in their homes with a bullet between the eyes, the Las Vegas police are culled by the CIA when the bullet ballistics hit too close to home. Getting no where fast, law enforcement call in the FBI hoping that they will have better luck getting the CIA to release important information and documentation.
Meanwhile 9 to 5 (925) banker and inventor Gregory Belittled sets into motion a plan to hunt for the serial killer on his own, not realizing that his father and the serial killer are one, and the same. Following years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Gregory is prepared to do everything it takes to end his father’s reign of terror in the hopes of locating his mother who has been missing for over twenty five years and stopping the door-to-door killer.
Told from several third person points of view, the storyline premise follows present day events with flashbacks and memories from the past. We follow Gregory from the age of four as he endures physical abuse and torment at the hands of his father –an ex CIA and special ops agent-to present where Gregory will assume the role of judge, jury and executioner-everything he learned from his father. The content and text contains some course language and graphic images of violence and murder but then again, it is a murder mystery storyline focusing on a serial killer so some the graphic content is to be expected.
The are a number of secondary and supporting characters who control a portion of the storyline: from law enforcement, the media, co workers and friends, we get a look into the investigation and take down of man who is sociopathic and insane.
I had some concerns with grammar, sentence structure, and past/present/future tense but saying that the storyline has been translated into English (from Dutch?) and the issues are most likely a result of improper conversion. As to the believability of the plot, again, there are some questionable situations of plausibility and conception but 925 is a story of fiction-a fantasy for the mind.
925 is an interesting read; a suspense filled story of intrigue, murder and revenge.
