Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams - OPTIONAL

Adams, Carolyn Lee  Ruthless, 248 pgs.  Simon Pulse, 2015.  $10.99  Content: Language: R (59 swears; 2 “F”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: R.  

Ruth wakes up buried under dirt and is moving down the road in a truck bed.  She has a concussion and is having a hard time remembering what happened to her, but when the truck stops, she realizes that she has been kidnapped by a man she calls Wolfman.  As Ruth tries to outsmart Wolfman before she gets killed, she flashes back to parts of her life before she was taken.  

I read this in one night, it was impossible to put down.  That said it’s creepy and intense with lots of content that is disturbing.  Wolfman is a serial killer and a pervert, which is hard to read about.  The violence is rated R because of its intensity and realness as well as the amount of violence, but it is not necessarily super graphic.  

HS – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
