Dysfunctional empires were made to fall.
I am Caesar. Broken and conflicted. I am a man who gives false goodness to those who crave it. I provide solace to the ones who beg to be saved, giving them the goodbyes they want. But, my quiet little world is about to be shattered by the whispers from heaven and hell.
I am Mateo. Unlovable and unworthy. I am the boy everyone runs from. I keep love close to me in little jars of perfection, reminding me of a thousand goodbyes I never had to say, because I left them before they could leave me.
I am Svetlana. Dirty and used. Birthed into brutality while still trying to comprehend my version of normal. I am an injured lamb, eaten by filthy wolves day after day. Just as salvation seems like it’s within reach, a goodbye from this awful world is all that I wish for.
One thought on “The Goodbye Man (Red Market #1) by A. Giannoccaro & Mary E. Palmerin”
A friend recommended this to me a while back. I got it as we tend to like the same when it comes to dark reads. It’s been sitting on my reader for quite a while now. Never really had the urge to read it until I noticed it on my reader yesterday.
My over all thoughts on this. Holy fucking shit!
Read the warning at the bottom of the books description and heed it well.
It’s twisted, depraved, violent. If you can think of it it’s in here. Hell even if you can’t think of it, It’s on every single page.
The POV annoyed me a bit as it enabled me to pretty much work out what was going to happen. But i persevered as I wanted to know more.
When I found out something about Ceaser and Svetlana I actually shouted out “I new it!” at 3 am this morning hahahaha.
Mateo is well…… One depraved and extremely disturbing individual. Then it just gets worse.
I have read some pretty dark reads over the years but this one I had to keep putting down and give my brain a rest.
I think what makes it more disturbing is that deep down you know what you’re reading really does happen to people in our world.
Awesome writing from the authors. They took on a lot of taboo subjects and did an excellent job in telling us the story.
I will be reading book 2 The goodbye Girl later today. I just need to give my brain some breathing room.
