WARNING: The Schwarzschild Radius
is not for the faint of heart!
Rachel, an 18-year-old Columbia University student, descends into the netherworld of runaways and predators to find her sister, Olivia, who has suddenly disappeared. After getting a job in a strip joint where Olivia worked, then doing private shows in the homes of rich clients, Rachel discovers that Olivia has been abducted by a killer who auctions the deaths of young girls in an eBay of agony. As she closes in on the killer who has taken Olivia, Rachel becomes his next target.
Dark and riveting, the harrowing opening chapter from The Schwarzschild Radius sets the tone for this uncompromising and gripping thriller by author Gustavo Florentin. It’s not for the faint hearted, it’s tense and morally disturbing as voyeurism reaches new extremes, with each page requiring your full concentration to fully absorb the prevailing sense of malevolence that pervades within. Undeniably brutal and graphic at times he spares no emotion; his writing is sparse, the intricacies of his plot are spun together like a fine tapestry and yet there’s a thematic undertone of social commentary which is hard to deny. In the main he achieves this through some great characterisation. The characters are human - confused, scared, tender, virtuous, vicious and complex. In short, they feel overwhelmingly authentic and this alongside astute conceptualisation brings a genuinely chilling aspect to his work, making for an engrossing read that will linger long beyond the last page turned.
Original and powerful, The Schwarzschild Radius is not easily forgotten and definitely deserves pride of place on your reading shelf. It is recommended without reservation!
