Review ~ First Boy by Dennis Sharpe

Dennis Sharpe
First Boy
Short horror story

Forrest County Sherriff’s Deputy Matthew Burroughs is having a bad day. First there was the cold winter weather, then a car accident on an icy bridge, and finally a routine stop to investigate a claim of neglected children. At an abandoned farm house in the middle of nowhere he finds a little girl and boy, and ends up dealing with far more than he ever expected.

For only 25 pages, it’s surprising how much the author has been able to fit into this story.  It’s a quick read but that didn’t take anything away from the story and it felt like it was much longer.  I never saw the end coming, even with the story one of the children was telling Matthew, and loved the twist.  I’m sure if I read it again I would notice much more, and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.
