Review: Rubble and the Wreckage by Rodd Clark

Gabriel Church knows you can’t take a life without first understanding just how feeble life is, how tentative and weak it stands alone. If you desire murder, you hold a life in your hand. Whether you release it to grant life or grip tighter to end it, it is at your command and discretion. Gabriel is a serial killer with a story he wants told.

Christian Maxwell studied abnormal psychology in college but chose instead to focus on a career in writing. His background comes in handy when he thinks of writing about a serial killer. He can’t think of anyone more qualified to write the story of Gabriel Lee Church, and do so in the murderer’s own words. It’s been done before, but never with a killer who has yet to be captured or convicted.

There was never anything more than a gentleman’s understanding between the two men that Christian would record Gabriel’s life story. The killer did not ask for his complicity in any crimes, nor did he ever ask for his silence. Christian’s interest in the man, though, is fast becoming something more than academic. When the writer and his subject become unexpected friends and then lovers, the question remains: What is Gabriel’s endgame . . . and why does he want his story told?

This book was so very interesting, and different from the things I normally read. I was intrigued by the book when it came through my inbox and knew I had to give it a chance. I’m so very glad I did. Gabriel Church is a serial killer that no one has realized exists. His murders are so vastly different, each case is on it’s own as opposed to being pieced together by some law enforcement somewhere. However Christian figured it out because he’s studied psychology and cold case files. I was fascinated how Christian was able to set aside Gabe’s killings only to be smacked in the face with it from some comment. He kept going around that circle of forgetting, falling for the man, then being reminded. I felt bad for the guy because you can’t help who you fall in love with, even if he’s a serial killer. Of course Gabe can’t stay and I was heartbroken at the end. I want for the two guys to have a happy ending, however I know it’s not possible for them. I can’t wait to see how the next book in the series goes!
