KILLING HIS FEAR by John B Wren

KILLING HIS FEAR                                                               5  STARS
by John B, Wren

OVERVIEW (FROM AMAZON)
The films of the forties and early fifties depended on lighting and sounds to convey terror. They didn't have the advantage of color and computer graphics nor did they delve into the same level of gore and violence that we see today. Such was the world of Brandon, a young impressionable boy who watches a Frankenstein movie on television one night and begins a trek through life in an ever deepening spiral of FEAR of the grey men and shadowy characters of these early films. Losing his father to a hit and run driver and his mother to her own mental hell, Brandon leaves home in suburban Detroit, seeking sanity in Florida. He arrives in Washington, DC and decides to earn a little money as a dishwasher before continuing his journey. He stays and eventually begins to see hope in his dark tunnel and a few life changing events begin to lift his spirits. Killing His Fear takes place almost entirely in the District of Columbia. This is Wren's second book about a serial killer. It is a work of fiction, but the events are well within the oblivion.

REVIEW:
"Killing His Fear" is about a  protagonist who has an obsessive fear of night. He has found a way to keep it under control.  The cure was by accident but has some unbelievable results. Brandon seems soothed with his reaction to dangerous situations and the mastery of his opponents. His combatants are not so lucky. A  bigger problem is Brandon sees only a positive outcome. He doesn't think that he may have to deal with them again n. He feels nothing towards their feelings.  I felt the book was quite a page turner but it was rather a little disturbing.  The early films depended on lighting and sound to show the effects they were looking for. Brandon as a young boy was very impressionable.  One night of watching Frankenstein on TV ans his life is changed. Fear began to spiral out of control. Brandon;s father was killed by  a  hit and run driver ans his mother, well she had her own personal hell.Brandon heads Florida. He becomes a dishwasher in Washington D.C. to earn a little money for his trip.He ends up staying and things begin to look up for Brandon.  This is the second book the author, John B. Wren has written about a serial killer. You get the feeling that this could very well be happening, not fiction , but reality. Will Brandon get control  of his fear or will it become worse? I would recommend this book to everyone.  It holds your attention and at times you feel  like you are actually there. Fear can be quite controlling. It can consume you.

I would give give this book 5 Stars.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book  KILLING HIS FEAR by the author, John B. Wren for this unbiased review.

About the Author:
Raised in western New York State, John B. Wren has been functioning as a consulting engineer for over 40 years, providing design services for building utility systems in commercial and industrial facilities, educational institutions, hospitals and data centers across the United States and around the world. Educated in New York and Ohio, Wren has been an avid reader of high tech thrillers, mysteries and in the non-fiction realm, physics and astrophysics. His first published novel, To Probe A Beating Heart, has been available since the summer of 2011 and his second work, Killing His Fear, is now available through Amazon. "My next project, titled 'Darryl's Reunion' is in progress and expected to be released in the spring of 2013." Wren's writing interests are not restricted to tales of murder and mystery, but touch on the conditions of the world around us as will be evidenced in another work anticipated to reach completion late in 2014. "I think about many things that stir a number of us all and putting my thoughts and opinions in writing may well establish a bond between some and build a wall between others, but my objective would be neither. Rather to put the tougher issues of today on a common table where discussion may occur. The answers are not always one extreme or the other but rather a position somewhere in between where opposites may coexist."
