review for my little revenge tale, SPEED DEMON, by guest reviewer, Cole. In part, he said:
"I really loved this story. Like all of Rick Reed’s works there always seems to be a haunting hum in the background of the storytelling. And that is exactly what this was — storytelling. With the rolling gait of the words and the story’s moral of the downfall of jealousy, this story came across like those in the oral tradition. It is a cautionary tale about what one man will do to secure the affections of the man he thinks he loves..."
Jealousy can be such an ugly emotion, but can it drive one to kill?
Jake is in love with Cayce, an older, best-selling author who thinks of him only as a friend. Cayce is enthralled—as is everyone else—with Garland, a gorgeous waif of a boy, famous for his eccentric clothes and an unparalleled desire to be at the center of attention. Constantly.
Jake’s discovery of something as mundane as a few over-the-counter sleeping pills pulls "Speed Demon" into a story of thwarted love, of a twisted triangle, and just maybe, a tale of crime and revenge from beyond the grave..
