When We Join Jesus in Hell is an intense, dark and powerful read that will leave a big impression and wrench your emotions all over the place. A novella that will awaken feelings you never thought could exist.
Fist is an ex-boxer who at the height of his career, packed it all in to be the man his family needed him to be and avoided the injuries that were sure to come. He settles into an ordinary if not boring life but that all changes in absolutely stunning fashion when he comes home one night to his family, a little bit the worse for wear and finds an intruder in his house. Life can change in an instant, hell visits few but for those it touches, things can never remain the same. To say more would give the game away, enough to say that a quote from the bible is not something you’d usually see in the review for a piece of horror fiction but this is fitting, I think.
‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied’.
Highly recommended this is a heart-breaking tale of love lost and vengeance, and you travel every excruciating minute of Fist’s journey as he seeks retribution. A devastating and remarkable piece of fiction with the first paperback edition released in January 2015.
