Fractured Suture by Kerry ONeal follows the story of a lifelong serial killer. At the tender age of nine, Thomas Allen Matthew instigated a fire that led to the brutal deaths of his neighbors. Since he was young, he was plagued by headaches that would only go away when he replenished his thirst for blood and killed someone. Thomas ended up murdering his own mother at fifteen, which led to his father's incarceration. After a lifetime of murders, Thomas bought a house in Atlanta, Georgia, where he met a mysterious elderly lady, Abigail Obadia. Forming an unlikely bond, Thomas relates his life story to Abigail, who has her own tragic past. Even with his bloodthirsty nature, Thomas is somewhat hesitant about killing Abigail. However, unbeknownst to Thomas, he is in for a big surprise.
If nailbiting psychological thrillers are your jam, Fractured Suture is just the book you're looking for. Well-paced and tightly plotted, the book breezes past without a single hitch, keeping you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Kerry ONeal gives you an inside look at the mind of a serial killer, providing a fascinating glimpse at his psychosis that showcases his inability to comprehend actual human emotions or form genuine relationships with others. Like many serial killers in history, Thomas is a riveting personality to observe. ONeal masterfully portrays Thomas' utter lack of guilt or remorse as he justifies his actions by conversing with his split inner persona. Overall, a gem of a book for fans of psychological thrillers.
