Delving into the Darkness tv series
For the first time in his life a police Lt. from New York police faces "world of Absolute Evil"
If you are one of these people who think that the world is a pretty bleak place, be warned before reading "World of Absolute Evil"….not only will your worst fears be confirmed but this story will push horror
further than in any of your nightmares. Set in :Westchester County, New York State, this menacing story revolves around a cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism,Intriguing and hatred. And, to make matters worse, the unwitting victims of this adult egotism are innocent children whose only wrongdoing is that they are there.
Lieutenant Michael Holmes,a detective specializing in unsolved crimes,is investigating the case of missing child... seven year-old Isaac Menis!after a while the police found his corpse…he was murdered!!!
The investigation is complex and increasing pressure is put on the detectives to find suspects. The first candidate is identified : Joshua Solomon-the mysterious leader of a religious cult whose relationship with children raises cause for concern. However, Lt. Holmes’ deputy, Wally, is not convinced that Solomon is guilty, at least not of the Isaac case.
As the investigation unravels we learn of the utter disfunctionality of Isaac’s family - his divorced mother and father and their respective new partners. But of all these rather unpleasant figures, it is his father Abraham who surpasses them all in the bitter and twisted stakes. It would be hard to imagine a character as full of resentment, anger and misogyny as this bit-part actor and model.
Another character in this hate-fuelled bunch who could have reason to want Isaac’s disappearance to remain permanent is the partner of Isaac’s mother, Gideon, a gynecologist, who sees the child as an interfering obstacle to his efforts to control and manipulates Isaac's mother?
Although we are told that this is a ‘World of Absolute Evil’, paradoxically there are some clues that allow us to understand (but not necessarily like) even the most distasteful characters in this book: Abraham was severely abused by his mother as a child, and Joshua, despite his abnormal behavior, seems to be a genuinely caring although person. Nevertheless, an ominous air pervades this book, re-enforced by sinister misinterpretations of the Old Testament and Nietzsche. No one is beyond suspicion.
Eventually a trial is held and Solomon finds himself in the dock. The trial is complex, but despite his best efforts, Solomon’s attorney’s defense is demolished at each turning. It is only at the end of the trial that the terrifying truth is exposed.
The story is told in a series of fast moving scenes that heighten the tension and carry the reader along to reach a cliff-hanging conclusion. World of Absolute Evil is a novel that is gripping in its vivid portrayal of a society peopled by repulsive, self-seeking and, ultimately, psychotic characters. It is a book to be recommended to all fans of suspense thrillers.
