Incognolio by Michael Sussman

EBOOK

A psychological thriller…

unlike any novel you’ve ever read!

The book itself is crazy; crazy cool. . . And there is humor. Lots of funny stuff delivered with the offhand manner of a master comic’s best throw-away lines. . . But it is the author’s genuine creative skills that make his through-the-looking-glass words so entangled and enticing, and makes of his wonderful experiment such a grand success. –Joel R. Dennstedt, Readers’ Favorite

Guided only by the whims and dictates of his subconscious mind, Muldoon must finally face his demons and write his way to freedom or succumb to madness.

Reviewed By Sefina Hawke for Readers’ Favorite:

Incognolio by Michael Sussman is a literary fiction novel that would appeal most to a diverse audience of mature young adults and adults who enjoy psychological thrillers with elements of mystery, magic, and science fiction, and who do not mind explicit language, sexual situations, and graphic violence. Muldoon is the narrator of the novel and has an acute injury to his brain according to his neurosurgeon, Dr. Noggin, who cautions against writing Incognolio because the brain injury has made it difficult for him to organize and plan effectively, which would lead to a disorderly plot. Yet, Muldoon does not desire an orderly plot; instead he prefers to share his dealings with the cult, the epidemic, and the mind controlling headband in his own words without regard to conventional organization.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Michael 003

Abandoned by a cackle of laughing hyenas, Michael Sussman endured the drudgery and hardships of a Moldavian orphanage until fleeing with a traveling circus at the age of twelve. A promising career as a trapeze artist was cut short by a concussion that rendered him lame and mute. Sussman wandered the world, getting by on such odd jobs as pet-food tester, cheese sculptor, human scarecrow, and professional mourner while teaching himself the art of fiction. He now lives in Tahiti with Gauguin, an African Grey parrot.

Book Review: Behind Her Eyes

“This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links”.

Title: Behind Her Eyes

Author: Sarah Pinborough

Genre: Thriller

Rating: 3 stars

I chose this book from a book subscription service. Thrillers are one of my favorite genres and the premise of the story is what grabbed my attention.

Behind Her Eyes does have the suspense element going for it; however it takes a while for it to come to fruition. The beginning of the book tends to move by slow with the introductions to the characters, but towards the middle that’s when the story begins to pick up. One of my main grips with the story is the introduction between David and Louise is never shown. That’s one of the main factors mentioned in the blurb, yet the bar scene with them is never shown, instead we just get a recap of it from Louise.

Moving onto the characters, Adele is the one who brings the mystery to the story. She’s the one who keeps the story moving. Throughout the book, you’re questioning whether she’s a victim or if she’s a master manipulator. As for David, much like Adele, he also has that mysterious factor about him. As details of his relationship with Adele are told, you’re left wondering what his motive is. Now, Louise is considered sort of the main character, the one stuck in the middle of Adele and David’s marriage. At the start, I liked Louise’s character, I felt for her in her struggle as a single mom. Yet, about halfway through I began to loathe her character due to her questionable actions.

The ending of the book gives you a plot twist that will shock you. While it may seem corny to some, it did have a creepy factor to it.

Behind Her Eyes does deliver with the suspense you expect of a thriller, yet the overall plot of the story could use some tuning.

Summer in South Carolina—a time of ripe peaches, crackling bonfires, trips to the lake, and the rural legend of a creature known as the Lizard Man. This year, a very real monster is lurking about. The victims all have one thing in common—they share their names with plants. Soon it becomes apparent that seventeen-year-olds Dusty Miller and Nandina Bush may be next on the killer’s list.

“That was when I realized that the red I saw in the driveway wasn’t blood. It was a scattering of rose petals. Deep down, I knew, right at that very moment, that what all of us had been afraid of for the past several months had already happened. The serial killer had finally made his way to Crow County.” – Dusty Miller

Perennials is a mysterious thriller that will grip you from the start. As a string of murders take place, all involving people named after plants, Dusty Miller must run afoul of the killer while trying to solve the mystery.
