review: Murdoch's eyes by Jeff Bennington

Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life. - Thomas Merton



Murdoch's Eyes
what is it about green-eyed men that makes them so attractive and irresistible? Gina is about to find out in a very scary way.
author Jeff Bennington's supernatural thriller is an excursion into pure madness and unrelenting suspense. i was grabbed from the first few sentences to the last chilling one. the descriptive writing is strong and the pacing is as fast as the scenes that unfold.
there are only three characters but each one is well fleshed out. Gina's emotions are palpable and radiate off the pages. her terrifying experience is another example that bad things can and do happen to good people. the pull and power of Murdoch's eyes glow with terror and evil. he may be handsome but there is something wrong about him. Bruce, on the other hand,  is innocence and goodness wrapped up in a hideous package.
the book's length may be short but i love how everything came together. Gina's story serves as a warning that looks can be deceiving at times and Murdoch and Bruce's playthings are better left untouched.
