Book Review of Suspense Anthology The Apostate by J. B. Hogan

Each week, read a #bookReview on by best selling author, speaker & Top #BookReviewer Ronda Del Boccio. This week it’s a collection of suspenseful stories called The Apostate by J. B. Hogan.

Welcome back to another Write On Purpose book review. Each week, I review a well-written book, highlighting what makes it good from the reader’s perspective and what writing skills and techniques make it an irresistible read. Thus, each review serves both writers and readers.

This week, it's a collection of suspenseful tales called The Apostate and Other Stories of the Contemporary Southwest by J. B. Hogan

The Apostate by J.B. Hogan

Bobby Earl, a desperate boy with psychopathic urges,

sticks a gun to the head of mild-mannered college professor and fugitive Michael and kidnaps him. The police and FBI are on the lookout, but Michael’s hidden past makes attention from the FBI the last thing he wants. His past hadn’t been a problem until now but his predicament has drawn the attention of the one man in the state who would know him for who he really was. A successful rescue might mean death or imprisonment for Michael, but staying in a killer’s clutches is certain doom unless Mary Beth – a sweet but damaged woman-child – can calm Bobby Earl. And time is running out.
