#BookReview - Fatal Greed by John W. Mefford @JWMefford #ReviewShare #Suspense

Fatal Greed (Greed Series #1)Fatal Greed by John W. Mefford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When an author takes a single book and then converts this into an experience not just a book, this is when the generic rating system is just not enough. We first received Fatal Greed followed by Lethal Greed. It was only after this that we realised the author had a whole campaign set up around his new releases, #SummerofGreed.

Of course, one of the perks of this campaign are numerous giveaways but I for one was truly fascinated by the time, effort and thought the author had taken into launching the series. Where most authors publish one book and then focus all their resources on that one book, here was an author who was doing it differently and thinking on a far larger scale. Impressive.

Now, on to Fatal Greed. The undercurrents of lust, excessive desire and greed in general reminded me of Seven (Brad Pitt & Kevin Spacey). It's sickening to imagine these things and yet you know it happens. I did find some of the sex imagery a bit disturbing so those easily disturbed by such scenes may want to read the sample chapter first.

John W. Mefford can certainly write and pull you into the story in ways you won't expect. If you have an open mind and crave for a plot that is imaginative and exciting, Fatal Greed must be on your reading list.

Would I recommend this read? Abso-bloody-lutely and I have only said that for one other book.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5

Offensive content?: Based on language, settings and overall content, I would recommend this book for adult readers.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
