Book Journey: Rubble and the Wreckage

EtherealJinxed|Book Review | Rubble and the Wreckage by Rodd Clark

Genre: Erotic Romance Thriller
Book Name: Rubble and the Wreckage
Author: Rodd Clark
Pages: 254
Publication Year: 2015
Publisher: Driven Press

After reading the excerpt of the book, I knew it was going to be a different genre than those that I had been reading recently – the murders, the non-guilt arising out of it, each short story bringing even the listener (writer) closer to the killer.

This book is yet another romantic thriller with close to half a century murders. Written in a smooth character building/ evolving for the two protagonists, Church and Christian, Robb Clark has been successful in entwining emotions of both together in an insane way. However, half-way through the book, it at times got to the extent of eeeuu puke. May be I would not have been too harsh had it just been a boy-girl drama!

That said, is it really so easy to ignite a spark in us that is always on the loose to bring up the bad side and crash all the previous moments? The book brings similar such flaws of human being at the front.

Not my type of book, and definitely not worth 200 pages of read. Can only be read by those dreamy ones or the ones still looking for something to satisfy their appetite after Christian Gray, but with non girl-boy eroticism. Remember, I warned!

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
Gabriel Church knows you can’t take a life without first understanding just how feeble life is, how tentative and weak it stands alone. If you desire murder, you hold a life in your hand. Whether you release it to grant life or grip tighter to end it, it is at your command and discretion. Gabriel is a serial killer with a story he wants told.

Christian Maxwell studied abnormal psychology in college but chose instead to focus on a career in writing. His background comes in handy when he thinks of writing about a serial killer. He can’t think of anyone more qualified to write the story of Gabriel Lee Church, and do so in the murderer’s own words. It’s been done before, but never with a killer who has yet to be captured or convicted.

There was never anything more than a gentleman’s understanding between the two men that Christian would record Gabriel’s life story. The killer did not ask for his complicity in any crimes, nor did he ever ask for his silence. Christian’s interest in the man, though, is fast becoming something more than academic. When the writer and his subject become unexpected friends and then lovers, the question remains: What is Gabriel’s endgame . . . and why does he want his story told?

About the author:
Rodd lives in Dallas, TX at the moment but hails from the sticks of Oklahoma. Interested in the M/M Mystery, Romance and Thriller genres but has a varied interest in many good books. His books have a darkly distinctive voice and deep characterizations..

Rating: 6/10
