    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review.Trusting, faithful followers. Believers and redeemers. Soul stealers. Lemmings. One is evolving, one is regaining his sight. A man with a God complex and a disarming smile. Do not let him into your heart. A tantalizing mixture of police procedural and horror. The blend makes for a tasty read if you don't mind a healthy helping of gore. I thought it was swell.

    Review copyNot exactly what I was expecting from Jason Parent, but WOW, what a great read.“'Are you looking for some company?' she asked, knowing they wouldn’t be talking to her for any other reason. 'Actually, we were looking for you.' The man’s smile and his voice’s velvet tone oozed with charm."Eliza, one of the victims of a serial killer like none other. Assigned to the case are Detective Bruce Marklin, a man no one liked, and his partner, Detective Jocelyn Beaudette.“They sawed th [...]

    A LIFE REMOVED, by Jason Parent, is an intense genre combination horror novel. It encompasses a crime/police procedural thriller with dark, sinister action, gore, and an added abundance of psychological horror. The end result is a novel that you feel you've "lived" through, so well defined are the characters and events that unfold. I'd wager that there is a character in this book that almost everyone could relate--in some part--to.Aaron Pimental is a policeman with the "usual" duty of waiting to [...]

  • March Shoggoth Madness The Haunted Reading Room

    Review of A LIFE REMOVEDby Jason ParentI found this mystery/thriller novel riveting. Jason Parent has quite a talent for writing complexity, and truly I did not see the twists this novel would take. Everything fit together quite well, though, and the tapestry is tautly woven and ultimately horrifying. It's easy to dismiss such a story as fiction, but the discerning reader is left pondering, “But what if--?”This is not a good-guys vs. bad guys simplicity. This plot is complicated, as are the [...]

    It is no secret - I am a huge fanboy for Jason Parent, and for good reason. The man is a talented writer, and as long as he is scribbling word, I will read them. Not to be cliche, but I would read his letter to Santa with wide-eyes wonder.With the gushing out of the way, I also have to disclose Jason is a good friend as well. I've had the pleasure of hanging out with him a couple times, and he is a great guy. The fact that I know him bears no impact on my review of this book.I really enjoyed A L [...]

    This was an odd story. To say that I wanted to maybe go out and kill a noisy neighbor and munch on their heart might be a little overblown.but then I had a snickers. I didn't get the energy boost from it that I might have received from a bloody, still beating heart, but hey, the neighbors are still alive! I loved everything about this story. The murderers and their motives were truly screwey. I like that. The police however were bumblers. Think keystone cops, without the billyclubs. While I fini [...]

    "To summarise: Jason Parent is a master storyteller. From the first word, you will be lost in the story. Just remember this: it’s make believe. Or is it?"See here for the full review:A Life Removed

  • Bandit

    I've read and listened to the author's books before and have come to expect a sort of lowbrow entertainment, but I'm thrilled to see that he's actually improving as an author. With this one, somewhat unimaginatively named thriller, Parent enters a new territory. It's more ambitious, the dialogue is stronger and more importantly the characters are finally acquiring some dimensionality. This might have been just another middle of the road cops chasing a serial killer story, but Parent elevated the [...]

    Detectives Bruce Marklin and Jocelyn Beaudette have put plenty of criminals behind bars. But now there is a killer out there somewhere who kills without motive, and doesn't care who he/she kills. Officer Aaron Pimental was the first officer at the first murder. He is going through some personal issues. There is a paranormal through the story, which isn't a high side for my liking. There is some descriptions of murder. Can the police figure out the killer is? You will need to read the book to fin [...]

  • Malina Skrobosinski

    Faith is for the lemmings.Let me start by saying that this is the first novel I've read by Jason Parent. I can't say that I loved it, though it wasn't a terrible read, it just wasn't for me. Let's start with the premise of the story shall we it's told from several points of view, the main being Aaron Pimental, a small time police officer who's life seems to be rather mundane, he's been with his girlfriend, Arianna, for 6 years and things couldn't be more "routine" for them if they were married.

  • Martha Brindley

    This is my first read by Jason parent. The description was just a bit too vivid for me but nonetheless, a well written book. A mixture of horror and police procedural set in small town America. Good characterisation and plenty twists to keep you engrossed. A good plot with plenty suspense means I would recommend this book. Many thanks to Net Galley for my copy.

    There's a serial killer on the loose in Fall River, Massachusetts; someone who's seriously sick. He kills indiscriminately and cuts out his victims' hearts. Police officer Aaron Pimental finds himself thrust into the limelight when he's first on scene at another grisly murder, then later discovers friend Craig has also fallen prey to the killer. Detectives Marklin and Beaudette begin to wonder if there's more to Pimental than meets the eye A Life Removed is an excellent police procedural crime n [...]

  • Courtney

    This fast-paced, psychological thriller/murder mystery is not for the faint of heart or the weak stomach (play on words ;) ). The narration was well done by Parent as he painted an intricate and multi-layered plot that engrosses the reader from page 1 through the epilogue. The shifts in perspectives add suspense in addition to knowledge we have and the other major characters do not, laying out insecurities and inner struggles. Content-wise, I felt like I was reading an episode for The Blacklist [...]

  • Elke

    'A Life Removed' is a thriller which runs the gamut from psychological to horror. When several bodies are found missing their hearts, detectives Marklin and Beaudette have a hard time investigating the case. The book has no fix POV, as parts of the story describe the police investigation, while others follow Aaron Pimental, who happened to be the first officer at the first crime scene. As a third angle, we have the viewpoint of the culprit, so we also know the who, how and where of each next mur [...]

    A Life Removed by Jason Parent, 284 pages, Red Adept Publishing LLC, May 23rd 2017, Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Police Procedurals. Warning: Contains Spoilers.Review by Leigh Holland.    I was drawn to this story as it takes place in Fall River, Massachusetts, location of the infamous Lizzie Borden murders. I was hoping there might be some connection to between the killings in this story and the ones before, but there weren’t. The story takes place there coincidentally.  There are three main p [...]

    There's so much I want to say about this novel, I'm not even sure where to begin. There were so many layers and nuances to it that I could not put it down once I started. There's a killer on the loose, carving out hearts and leaving the bodies on display. Aaron's a good cop. He really is. But once he gets involved in the gruesome murders, his life is literally downhill from there. First things first, as a crime novel, I was really satisfied with how things were set up. Things started off vague, [...]

    A serial killer terrorising Fall River, a city in Massachusetts and it is up to Detectives Bruce Marklin and Jocelyn Beaudette to capture him and stop these violent killings. Officer Aaron Pimental was the first to respond to one of the crime scenes and from the start did not make a good impression on the detectives, but the further this case goes on, the more he found himself involved.The partnership between the detectives was strong and they were good at bouncing ideas of each other. Due to Br [...]

  • Karen

    Wow, what a story! This story was full of feels and horror for me. I enjoyed the book, but found myself making faces at times. It is a well written crime thriller. The characters are very well formed and they pull you into the story completely. A small town in Massachusetts is being terrorized by a killer who is brutal and very organized. The police are stumped and have no leads as to who the killer is. A well seasoned detective and a young detective are partnered to investigate and they work v [...]

  • Lindsay

    I have received this books as an ARC from netGalley with intentions of writing an honest and truthful review. I have never read a book from Jason Parent, but have heard some really good things about his writing, so when I saw this one on NetGalley I wanted to give it a shot. Wow is all I can say I will be reading more books from him in the future. He is a well written author and awesome story teller. His book had my attention from the minute I started the book to the minute I finished the book. [...]

  • Monica

    Well this was interesting book. I don't know why but I was actually rooting for the killer in this book. I think it's because I would like to see more of him in another book. Once I actually started reading the book and didn't put it off I really got into the book and enjoyed it. You feel bad for Aaron but he is nutters. I like detective Jocelyn Beaudette the best out of all the characters besides the killer. This book gets you thinking on how some people will just follow anything someone says i [...]

  • Carrie

    Good book, first book I have read by Jason Parent and I really liked it I should read some of his others. The detectives seem to balance each other out however Bruce is most unlikeable, its hard to catch a killer with no clues and suppostly no connection with any of the victims or is there? On the verge of twisted "religious" psychopaths. I was given this book and voluntarily chose to review all of the opinions expressed are my own.
