Killer Cain

Bryan Foreman’s debut novel, Killer Cain, is a fast-paced thriller that chronicles the deadly adventures of ATF agent John Cain. Cain, a seasoned agent, carries the emotional scars resulting from the dark and disturbing life as an ATF officer. He is a man riddled with the guilt and haunting memories of love and loss. Living a life focused entirely on his job, Cain becomes obsessed with a gun-dealing psychotic by the name of Bobby Ray Hooker.

Hooker, a racist and religious fanatic, escapes from prison and becomes dangerously fixated on Cain, the man he blames for his own loss. Cain and Hooker embark on a mad journey of payback where everything and everyone Cain cherishes becomes threatened. Cain and Hooker become embroiled in a twisted and sinister chase that takes both men from the seedy and crime ridden streets of LA, to the dark and deadly forests of Alabama, and finally to Cain’s brother and family in Oklahoma City.

Killer Cain is a captivating thriller filled with many surprising deadly twists and turns. The author takes readers into the vividly described violent world of guns and racist hate mongering fanatics. Although the dialogue may seem harsh to some, it gives a sense of realism to the twisted and deadly hate filled racists such as the KKK.

Within the violence and bloodshed, important themes of love, loss, and family become entwined with self-pity, guilt, and vengeance. Cain’s brother and family reveal Cain’s longing and painful guilt for the peaceful life that he gave up for a life of capturing criminals, and delving into the darkness they represent. My only question of a realistic approach to one issue is Cain’s brother and how quick he forgives indiscretions.

At the heart of Killer Cain, is a story of revenge and redemption. From start to finish, the thriller is a definite page-turner. I highly recommend the book to readers who enjoy engaging and action packed stories with unexpected twists and turns.
