Latest Must Read: Goldfinches by Ryan Sayles


From Amazon: “Family man Carl, with his wife and daughter, are on their way check on his young son who had been hospitalized for an ear infection complicated by the boy’s Type 1 Diabetes. Stopped at a light they are confronted by a gunman who pulls Carl from the vehicle, stealing the vehicle and his family with it.

Desperate, Carl, will do anything to save his family, even commit a carjacking himself. Carl finds himself chasing after his family, being chased by the police, and confront the reason for this random act of violence.

When all seems lost, Carl finds a reason to believe, and finds himself amidst a conflict of good and evil.”

Where to start with this great read. Ryan’s hard, gritty writing style is perfectly coupled with vivid description and subject matter that simultaneously tugs at the heart and makes you squirm with discomfort. I have been waiting eagerly for this book to come out after seeing a teaser of the cover a few months back and I am not disappointed.

I have to shout out to Ron Earl Phillips and One Eye Press for producing such a beautiful book. If you haven’t indulged in the One Eye Press singles, you are missing out. Here are links to purchase below.
