Pigs was a good four star read.
I was pulled right into this thrilling read.

Isaac is released from prison and is looking forward to rebuilding his relationship with his family. When things take a scary twist Isaac and his family are attacked, his wife and son are murdered.

Isaac is determined to get revenge and sets out to find the murderer. He entails the help of some people from his past. Isaac also finds himself being hunted by a very twisted and sick man.

There is so much more to this great read I don’t want to give anything else away.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. We get murder, violence, revenge, danger and so much more. There were some things that were hard for me to read regarding some of the violence. I was pulled right in by Daniels writing, all of the characters were great. This is my first read from Daniel and I look forward to reading more.

The description of Pigs, by Daniel James instantly drew me in and I knew it was a must read. I was not disappointed! The prologue was frightening and I feared the book would be too much. It is super disturbing, but the story had me hooked. It is a chilling story of revenge. The characters are very complex and we can see their emotions through their actions. It is a fine line between being good or evil, and its not always clear where the line is drawn. There is suspense and mystery throughout this crime thriller, and I loved it.
Isaac Reid has just been released from prison, where he has been for 10 years. He worries about acclimating to life in the real world with his wife and son, who only has seen him through a plexiglass window. However his focus shifts, when his family is murdered within hours of his release. He is now torn between keeping his promise to stay on the straight an narrow, and his urge for revenge. Despite trying to put his past behind him, he is thrown right back in. All the key players in the job that went bad, are soon back together and not to reminiscence.

Fresh out of prison, he heads home to his wife and son in the hopes of making a good life with them, one on the right side of the law this time. That night his wife and son are both brutally slain when Isaac’s past comes back to haunt him. The series of events that follows with keep you pouring through the pages of this psychological trip through the underbelly of the Chicago crime scene.

This author has created a truly believable, albeit absolutely terrifying, world of crime, vengeance, and horror. The psychological walk through the mind of a man who was once a highly successful doctor until one fateful night that changed everything is so well written, you might think they are actually your own thoughts! They should make a movie out of this book because you can see every moment of it as you read. The cover of this novel drew me in and the story kept a hold on me. If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, horror, crime novels, or just well written books, grab this one and start reading! This author definitely did not disappoint!

When I first considered giving this book a read, I thought, this sounds a little gory and violent. So, I drug my feet. But I can truthfully say, I am so glad I gave this story a read. Pigs by Daniel James is a fast-paced little novel about regret and vengeance. The stages that Isaac goes through from the time he is released from prison until the end of his nightmare brings both deep sadness and hopeful joy. Just when you think you have it all figured out it takes a sharp turn that’s both surprising but understandable. There is violence but its not graphic, and it sets the stage for all that comes after. This is just a good little novel and I think you will really like it. I know I did.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pigs by Daniel James is an action packed crime novel, with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers on their feet. It follows Isaac, newly released from prison and determined to stay away from the life that got him locked up – a life that isn’t going to let him go so easily.

The book opens with a fairly graphic torture scene which sets the tone for the rest of the book. If you find that uncomfortable, you won’t enjoy the book. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of graphic violence but it added to the tension which got me hooked.

This is the kind of book where you can never really relax. Like Isaac, you’re always looking over your shoulder, never feeling safe. Although much of the story comes from Isaacs perspective, occasionally chapters show us what other characters are up to giving us a broader perspective and time to let Isaac stew.

Pretty much everyone in this story is a criminal, but James achieves a variety of motivations and personal morals which make it easy for readers to pick a side. I particularly liked Grace, who prefers to talk people into doing her bidding to avoid having to use her gun.

For me, this is a five star book. A real page turner, with plenty of interest and action to flesh it out. Once I got going, I struggled to put it down!

This book completely sucked me in and I couldn’t put it down. The characters are so well written and the storyline had me hooked. This story will have you heart racing and have you trying to turn the pages as fast as possible to see what happens. I’m really glad I stepped outside my comfort zone and found this author.
