Look at the person sitting just across from you. It doesn’t matter whether they’re a loved one, a friend, or a complete stranger.
Now look at their face. Are they happy? Are they sad? Or are they angry? Can you even tell?
How well do you actually know the people closest to you?
Have you ever seen the real person that lies just underneath what you see…?
Underneath by Michael Cargill
We never know what lies beneath the surface of those around us, be they stranger, friend or even family and that is so very true in Michael Cargill’s UNDERNEATH.
Hugh has problems, big ones, unresolved issues and he sees life through skewed lenses that, on the surface, no one could see. It is the man he hides that will have police seeking him out. Can he fool the detectives with his façade of normalcy?
Very dark, very edgy and sometimes a little slow, being inside Hugh’s head was an uncomfortable experience as a seemingly small event would trigger his inner monsters, truly stating the obvious, you can’t judge a man by his outward demeanor.
I just wasn’t sold completely on this tale that at times, seemed to go on a bit too much. I can say, if you are looking for something that will make you want to wash hands when you are done, because your skin is crawling, this could be it!
