Présentation de l'éditeur

From The Acclaimed Author of SAVAGE HIGHWAY and APOSTLE RISING comes his latest thrilling noir mystery



"Godwin writes intelligent noir from a unique psychological perspective, delving deep into the nobler motives and emotions of his engaging characters while examining the darkest corners of the human heart. The faceless villain in this chiller is as real as a razor cut. THE PURE AND THE HATED is a story of love, generosity, betrayal, courage, evil, and hope. All set against a beautifully-rendered backdrop of Vermont. Before you sit down on a cool dark night to enjoy this one, make sure the doors and windows are locked.Phil Bowie, author of the John Hardin suspense series

A man takes a stranger into his house only to unleash a savage lesson from the past.
Shepherd Butler and his wife Mary are grieving the death of their son Felton to a hunting accident in Vermont. When Shepherd finds a stranger freezing in the forest he offers him a home. The man, Maxwell Heed has suffered personal tragedy when his fiancée was murdered. He becomes part of the family and Shepherd’s nieces, Marigold and Joyce, and his sister Holly, instantly take to Maxwell, who is a sincere and religious man, seeking to understand the nature of forgiveness. The father of Shepherd’s nieces, Dwight Fisher, ran off years ago and Shepherd takes an active part in their lives. Maxwell feels like another family member. He tells Shepherd and Mary of the man who killed his fiancée.
Temple Jones is a dangerous psychopath who preys on women. He has escaped justice. Maxwell fears he has followed him to Vermont. Shepherd tries to allay Maxwell’s fears. Maxwell disappears leaving a note saying he has seen Temple Jones. Then Temple Jones turns up.
Using the natural beauty of Vermont as a backdrop to the action, the novel explores forgiveness and our understanding of one another. It explores family relations and the mind of a psychopath. A psychological crime novel about the past, the nature of justice, family secrets, the nature of forgiveness, revenge, identity, hunting and predation.

"A master of the noir genre ... Godwin is like finding a brilliant gem stone in a vast wasteland of sand and rock. A writer to watch for the decades to come."--Vincent Zandri, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of The Remains and Orchard Grove

"An exceptional writer with an extraordinarily fine mind. ... His novels are always good with crackling dialogue. Read him."Luke Rhinehart, bestselling author of The Dice Man

Also make sure you read Godwin's SAVAGE HIGHWAY for the best in mystery noir.

"The road novel from hell, a scarifying, terrifying tour of a nether world that Godwin convinces us is right beneath our feet, a surrealist inferno that makes Dante's version look like a Rotary breakfast. By no means for the fainthearted, SAVAGE HIGHWAY has one lesson for any readers who plan a visit to the American Southwest: take the train."--Castle Freeman Jr., author of THE DEVIL IN THE VALLEY,/b>

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for the light-hearted 27 mai 2016
Par Thomas Panholzer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Richard Godwin’s The Pure and the Hated bounces the reader off two walls: violence and sensuality. The plot’s twist might be taken, if read deeply, as an American metaphor. At first this reviewer found the love scenes without purpose, but as the story quickly travels, the scenes juxtaposition themselves against the overall brutal sexual violence occurring over and over in the story. But the whole plot twists back upon itself, almost as a Greek tragedy playing itself out in crystal clear (and naïve?) Vermont. The stories chapters are very short, thus allowing the reader to catch a breath before deciding to move on to the next chapter or to first get that quick drink to buttress the nerves, for the ride is fast and definitely furious. Godwin writes well. This book starts off extremely well written. It remains well-written but this reviewer found the ending chapters to have been a bit rushed. Overall, the book has left this reviewer wanting to read it again to search for hidden meanings and reflections.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping, Suspenseful.....This book has all that plus more! 10 mai 2016

There is nothing better than getting your hands on a book that draws you in right at the start and doesn't let go! This book is all that and more. I did not want to put it down, once I started reading.
This book had me asking myself who, then why. I did figure out the plot, but when it was revealed, the author gave me twists and turns that I was not expecting! I love a mystery/suspense book that keeps you guessing and this book did just that!

I also got an advance copy so I can give honest review. I'm not much of a writer and I tend to write very little. That said, this book has it all! The story brought me in from the very beginning. I could not put it down. I had the first big hurdle figured out, BUT the more I read, the more twisted it got. All the twists and turns had my jaw hanging from its hinges. This book is very graphic and realistic. Creepy comes to mind. Glad it was fiction as at times I had to look away from the pages! Thanks to the author for a harrowing experience!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of twists and turns 13 mai 2016

This is not the usual type of book that I read so I did not know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was drawn into it and I had a hard time putting it down. It is an amazing story full of turns and twists. I really enjoyed this very exciting book. I am quickly becoming a big fan of author Richard Godwin. I highly recommend this book.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Really too much violence! 26 août 2016
Par susann - Publié sur Amazon.com

What a sick, twisted plot. Sorry, but I didn't enjoy it or find any redeming literary value. It was just a lot of gratuitous violence of a verbal and sexual nature. Didn't frighten me or even seem real or in any way truthful. The only things I liked were the nature images of Vermont. Can't recommend this as a thriller or anything else. The author does have a good grasp of the English language, something I appreciate these days, but the story just seemed awkwardly contrived.
