#63: Tabatha by Neil Gibson (Early Review)

Luke works as a mailman in Los Angeles and moonlights as a thief - the empty houses on his postal route are rich, easy pickings for him and his friends. Everything goes as planned until one house turns out to not quite be so empty. The situation spirals out of control, leaving the happy-go-lucky thieves battling for their lives. And all because of Tabatha.

REVIEW:
Not for kids.
It was twisted and disturbing, but I loved that. I was initially drawn into the description of this postal worker being a thief. I thought that in itself was something I hadn't read before, but wondered what was with the title, Tabatha. My question was answered pretty quickly, though that it when this heist story turns very, very dark and gritty.
Think the Saw movies.
Yep, that is what first came to my mind. Very cool. It had more mixed in to make it cooler than Saw, but you have to read it to find out what that is. My lips are sealed.
Horror fans, don't miss out on this one.

5/5

  2. Hmm, not sure about the disturbing part, but a mailman that moonlights as a thief kind of makes sense!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
