Here’s the set-up:
Now, after living twenty-three years with the twisted backwoodsman who pulled him from the wreckage, Dave is carrying out a plan to replace each of his lost loved ones with members of nearby, unsuspecting families. He has prepared, he’s stalked, and now his chance has come to get his family safely out of the mountains once and for all.
Whether they like it or not.
DISMEMBER is the worst twenty-four hours for two young boys, Zach and Trevor. It also lightly chronicles the worst twenty-three years of Davy’s life. It’s a mystery/thriller that takes us into the mind of an abused and battered soul who, in turn, reaches out and batters others with the hope that it will ‘make things right again’ for himself and his family.
The story is solid and beautifully written, and you will definitely enjoy the author’s descriptive prowess, but this is a story that you read for the sake of the journey, not the ending, since there really isn’t much of one. But more on that in a minute.
The strength of this book is the powerful expression of the parent/child bond, and it does that extraordinarily well. For a gore fest, I found myself enjoying the tender moments of DISMEMBER above anything else. The divorced parents of six-year-old Trevor Pullman try as hard as they can to make sure that both are a part of his life, and their actions show that love in almost every scene.
