Repelled and yet intrigued by her mature neighbor, a high school senior gets caught in his world of madness and murder in the blood-curdling novel Red Romance: A Contemporary Thriller by Timberly Price. Layla Fabian's parents move her from the sunny beaches of Florida to a small New Mexico town days before she starts her senior year. While unpacking, Layla notices Jason, the man next door, cleaning out his truck. When she speaks to him, his response to her is hostile and surly. Thinking Jason could be dangerous, Layla decides to avoid him. Despite her first impression, Layla develops a perverse fascination with Jason. Even when she believes he is a serial killer and is thoroughly repulsed by his nature, the pull Layla feels to Jason stubbornly persists. Is Layla strong enough to resist his influence? Or will she be drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse?
The origin of a psychopathic killer is chillingly unveiled in the riveting psychological thriller Red Romance by Timberly Price. Skillfully written, the author has created a shocking and brilliant narrative. Seen from Layla's viewpoint, the story begins in a standard quiet suburban setting with typical characters dealing with ordinary, everyday situations and dilemmas. Then, in a shocking and unexpected curve, the plot takes the unsuspecting reader on a breathtaking and grisly ride of horror. Dramatic scenes filled with cold-blooded murder, blood, and gore, the story is quite disturbing and paranoia-inducing. This hair-raising novel will satisfy everyone who enjoys thrillers with a psychopathic twist. The book is more suitable for mature readers due to the graphic violence and explicit language contained within the story.
