The Fall of Billy Hitchings – Kirkus MacGowan


The Fall of Billy Hitchings by Kirkus MacGowan

Publisher: Kirkus MacGowan

A unique thriller! Five Stars!

This book was one of the most interesting and creative ventures I have read in a long time. Mr. MacGowan has written a story that is not only a page-turner, but incorporated with many underlying messages that everyone can relate to.

The hero, Billy Hitchings, is the quintessential young adult that is struggling to find his place in this world. Unsure of what his future holds and really what he really wants his direction to be, he is a symbolic character of that difficult transition from childhood to adulthood. His true character and depth of moral fortitude is tested in a way that is truly a literary masterpiece.

Relationships are tested, loyalties and odd alliances formed and the ending! You will never see it coming.

This is a difficult book to review since saying too much would reveal plots and segments that you must read on your own. I will say that the characters are superbly written, their intertwined relationships riveting and the actual source of Billy’s “fall” is nothing short of
creative genius.

The book is written in a style that will keep you glued to the pages as the suspense and action lead up to an epic ending that leaves you
feeling breathless and stunned. I found myself thinking “is this it? No!”

If you enjoy a highly suspenseful read that incorporates action, adventure, a touch of the paranormal and characters you won’t soon forget, then I highly recommend this book!
