An interesting and engaging read for those looking to read a dramatic story with edge.
‘Supersized Blues’ by Roger St. John is a twisting and turning relationship story full of drama secrets and revenge. They say “Hell hath new fury like a woman scorned”, but I’d say Angel City Magazine contributing editor Hal Golan hell-bent on revenge is a serious contender. We watch his relationship with research analyst Mari Carlson develop, with the complications and miscommunications that entails, when everything starts to go wrong. I’d say this is almost a trilogy in a single book. We see the relationship of Mari and Hal develop then fall apart, with Hal being sent on a much darker journey, before the pair are reunited again with more revelations. And that’s just these two characters! There’s plenty of time given to the supporting cast of the book, with Deuce and Hal’s mother Vivian going through their own personal life dramas. I don’t want to say too much more about the plot to avoid spoilers, but I found it a complex drama of epic proportions with a tinge of thrill through the middle. All of the characters, though not entirely likable, are interesting and quirky in their own way and developed enough to make this an interesting and engaging read for those looking to read a dramatic story with edge.
