ARC Review: Rubble and the Wreckage by Rodd Clark

ARC Review: Rubble and the Wreckage by Rodd Clark


Gabriel Church knows you can’t take a life without first understanding just how feeble life is, how tentative and weak it stands alone. If you desire murder, you hold a life in your hand. Whether you release it to grant life or grip tighter to end it, it is at your command and discretion. Gabriel is a serial killer with a story he wants told.

Christian Maxwell studied abnormal psychology in college but chose instead to focus on a career in writing. His background comes in handy when he thinks of writing about a serial killer. He can’t think of anyone more qualified to write the story of Gabriel Lee Church, and do so in the murderer’s own words. It’s been done before, but never with a killer who has yet to be captured or convicted.

There was never anything more than a gentleman’s understanding between the two men that Christian would record Gabriel’s life story. The killer did not ask for his complicity in any crimes, nor did he ever ask for his silence. Christian’s interest in the man, though, is fast becoming something more than academic. When the writer and his subject become unexpected friends and then lovers, the question remains: What is Gabriel’s endgame . . . and why does he want his story told?

Tracy' Review:

5 Scary Stars

*Copy provided by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Author Christian Maxwell's life will never be the same after his world collides with serial killer, Gabriel "Gabe" Lee Church. 

Writer and Killer meet by chance and strike a deal. An exclusive tell all interview, that Chris will turn into a book. They start off with the interview at a local coffee shop in Downtown Seattle, and though neither man has ever been with a man before they eventually fall into bed. 

This was such an interesting book. For years I have watched documentaries and T.V. Shows about serial killers. I think they are fascinating, but I couldn't imagine coming face to face with one. Chris is either very brave or very stupid, it's honestly a little of both probably. Reading this book was like watching one of those T.V. Programs. 

Rodd is an amazing narrator and manages to weave a thrilling and intriguing tale of sex, lust, love, mystery and danger. Even though this book takes place over a short period of time, it was a long book and by the end I felt I Knew these characters. I rooted for them. I felt the love Chris and Gabe had for one another. I rooted for them to get their HEA. This says its book 1, so I'm really hoping Chris and Gabe's story hasn't ended yet! Can't wait for more! 

I have never read anything like this. If you love serial killers, pick this up and you won't be disappointed. 

*Just a note if you've never read or thought about reading a gay romance, please don't let that turn you off. There are no explicit sex scenes between the MC's*
