Books Blood, Sweat and Fears Gripping!A dizzying look into the mind of a man who is slowly losing his sanity and the opposing viewpoint of his victim. I loved how this story was written from two different point of views. I found it fascinating to find myself deep within the troubled mind of the "bad guy", when many authors add no depth at all to their characters at all, making them strictly "bad".What I love about Stanberry's writing is she always manages to capture the struggles that exist within all of us. Everyone wants to do right but sometimes the emotions of anger, green or lust get the best of us. We can only blame ourselves for our successes or failures.I don't want to give too much of the story away but I will say, this is the best drama I have read in several years. If you think you can handle the wide spectrum of emotions this book will take you through, I definitely think this is a great weekend read!.
