Abel’s Revenge - Ross Greenwood

This is a story about a city. As with all others, it’s a place of violence. There are murderers, and they live among us.
This is also a tale about a couple — sometimes friends, occasionally lovers, but always partners. Dan and Olivia are fighting modern battles; the ones parents have over a lack of money, time or peace.
An escalating serial killer terrifies the streets and homes. The body count rises as their relationship crumbles. Society reveals its dark side, and no one is safe. Dan and Olivia experience this first-hand as danger closes in.
Will Abel's reign of terror ever end?
Who will live and who will die?

My review

Although I’ve got other books by this author this is my first read by him but it certainly won’t be the last as this was a great read. 

The story starts off with an insight into Abel’s warped mind. After leaving school he moves away for a clean start where no one knows him. We also read the story of Dan and Olivia, a couple with two children. These two stories run parallel with each other. 

There’s a serial killer terrorising the city. Who’s the killer??

I found this to be a really well written story with a clever plot. It kept me on my toes as I kept trying to guess who the killer is. 
Great twists had me mentally high fiving the author. 
I can’t wait to see what this author writes next.

Ross Greenwood Author Bio
Ross Greenwood was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until he was 20, attending The King's School in the city. He then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world.
Ross found himself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually, so he says “when things had gone wrong.” It was on one of these occasions that he met his partner about 100 metres from his back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. And, according to Ross, he is “still a little stunned by the pace of it now.”
Lazy Blood book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then four years as a prison officer got in the way. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave the author the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep he completed it in the early morning hours.
Ross Greenwood’s second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by Bloodhound Books, and in September 2017, Fifty Years of Fear was published. All his books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour.
Ross Greenwood hopes you enjoy reading them.
