Brawl Review: Inside the Devil's Nest by John Durgin

Welcome back to another Weird Wednesday. But, for the next few months, it’s going to be a different kind of weird.

Since I’ve made a personal goal to read all 32 books that made it into this year’s Books of Horror Indie Brawl, instead of posting haunted locations articles, I am going to be posting my reviews of each book until I have finished them all!

Today's review is for: Inside the Devil's Nest by John Durgin

"Real estate agent Anthony Graham has his family on the run after witnessing a murder at the hands of the powerful Costello crime family. 

They’re forced to hide at one of Anthony’s properties: a deserted campground with a sinister past.

No one is safe from the men that hunt them or the terrors that await them inside The Devil’s Nest.”

This was my second book by John Durgin, and I loved it!

The characters are so well developed and even though they are mostly unlikable, they are realistic and interesting. Anthony wants to be a good husband but he has anger issues that get in his way anytime he is upset or stressed out. He and his wife have a rocky relationship, and it seems like anything could be the final straw.

And all of a sudden, Anthony finds himself running from the mob, and his family is in danger. He has to convince his wife and two kids to come with him, to leave their home and run away with him in the middle of the night. He tries not to alarm them by keeping the truth mostly hidden, but he has to tell them something that will convince them to go with him.

One of the recuring themes in this story is keeping secrets, and it seems almost everybody has one.

When Anthony and his family arrive in the Devil's Nest, things are not as they seem. And they are in for a roller coaster of a ride.

The caregiver and his son also have their secrets, and when all is revealed at the end. Well, no spoilers here... you'll have to read it and find out!

I love the way John reveals just enough to keep you guessing right up until the very end. I highly recommend this book.

Where to find this book: Amazon
