Title: Every Part of the Animal

This is basically a well-crafted thriller novella from an indie writer friend of mine who recently impressed with me another thriller called The Method. Here, we basically follow the goings on in a small town when a social media influencer comes to town and has a run in with a crazy, overprotective mum who reminds me of Margaret White.
I don’t have the best luck with thrillers and quite often I find them to be disappointing. This one just worked for me, and I think a lot of that was down to the length. Ralston didn’t try to drag it out, and he actually packed a hell of a lot of characterisation and worldbuilding into the pages that he did have. It’s hard-hitting, for sure.
