Absolution by Edmund Hulton is a crime novel about the life of a psychopath and the experiences that led to him becoming a serial killer. Ted Roth is unable to deal with everyday disappointments constructively and avenges himself by inflicting pain and torture and ensuring his victims’ humiliation in their last hours on earth. He shows no remorse for the brutal murders and feels justified because of the perceived hurt his victims caused him. With each murder, he becomes more creative, methodical, and meticulous. Absolution will capture your attention as you are drawn into the mind of an unconscionable and narcissistic human being performing these inhumane acts. Despite the horrors he has committed in the dark, he establishes himself as a regular guy, a friend, a son, a boyfriend, and a colleague, blending in or standing out, whatever the situation requires.
Absolution by Edmund Hulton is a thrilling, intense, and gruesome novel not for the faint-hearted. However, readers who can watch the narrative unfold will find it entertaining and will be impressed by Hulton’s storytelling prowess. Hulton developed a compelling and relatable main character, which could not have been easy considering that Ted Roth is a ruthless murderer. This book is the first of a kind for me in which a murderer explains his killing process in detail, including the planning, the actual murder, and the clean-up. Hulton tells it all and has created an intriguing and brilliant novel. The narrative and the characters, especially Roth, attract and maintain one’s attention throughout, and the plot is riveting.
