To Murder Matt
by Viveca Benoir (Goodreads Author)
Jf Vallee‘s review
Viveca Benoir is a great storyteller. This book has hard, controversial, difficult story lines woven into an intelligent dark saga, full of earthy Machiavellian plots – all from Matt. Each one a WTF moment. It’s a book that grabs you buy the balls and doesn’t let you go until the last page. Gripping, interesting, and with infuriating characters sometimes. You won’t be able to walk away from this without being changed in some way. It’s like being run over by a bulldozer. You know you have read it. You won’t forget it either. It’s not a book that sits amongst all the other books. It stands alone, daring you to read it. If you get all the way through this book then you should get a survivors badge. “I read To Murder Matt!’
Matt is not a nice guy. He uses everyone that is in his way. Men, women, doesn’t matter who. If he thinks he can use you he will. Women are just sex objects there for his pleasure. He enjoys toying with them, using them. It’s all about him. Possessive and jealous about Veronique to the point of obsession. She’s his property. He owns her, every bit of her. He owns every woman he meets, until he discards them. Throws them away without a second glance, like used condoms.
Morals? He hasn’t even heard of them. He will have sex wherever he can get it, with whomever he is closest to. One scene springs to mind. Hospital bed, nurse, sick wife. A class(less) act. Unforgettable. He’s an alley cat. A player. You might say a typical misogynistic guy. A con man. Always thinking about what’s in it for him. He shows no feelings, has no remorse. A socio /psychopath of the extreme.
Matt is basically a devil going through the lives of those around him. He deserves to be a target.
Well written. Not for the light readers or those looking for a soppy happy night time read. You will feel as violated as his victims. This is a roller coaster of twisted darkness of humungous proportions. Enough said.
