Nothing spells fall for me more than suspense thrillers and Love Gone Mad by Mark Rubinstein delivers a fast-paced, chilling twist on a tried and true trope. From the author’s voice to the characters themselves I could not put this down. Three-word review: thriller, compelling, and fascinating.
Adrian Douglas is a divorced middle-aged man surgeon who meets Megan Haggarty, an RN at the hospital, and they begin a relationship. A strange man approaches Adrian at a local bar he has become a regular in. He is stunned when this man whom he doesn’t know threatens him. After he is ejected from the bar, he shoots out the bar window, leaving Adrian a little jumpy. The tale that unfolds is riveting with interesting characters as the author slowly reveals this suspenseful tale.
Adrian is confident in his role as a surgeon, is happy with his move to the new hospital and moving forward. I found him to be an exciting and strong character with some unique views of the world. Megan is a character you immediately feel sorry for; her story is a touching one, and who doesn’t love a woman who works with babies? She has secrets, and those secrets propel the story, keeping you engaged. Their relationship started with insta-love but began to flesh out despite moments of awkwardness. Together they work, and you find yourself caught up in them and the suspense. Conrad is very fleshed out, and we get inside his head. Between his genius IQ and his ruthless disregard for others, you will find yourself in flux between intense curiosity and the desire to run!
Love Gone Mad offered an intense, descriptive, bone-chilling thriller that kept me on edge. Rubinstein fleshed out the characters giving us a unique perspective that I appreciated it. We experience the whole ride from the stalking, police involvement to the trials, and it was one heck of a ride. Despite this being a trope we know from books to films, the author added twists that kept me literally on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed the author’s writing style from his descriptive voice to his view on the inner workings of a twisted mind. Perfect for a dark, windy night Love Gone Mad will have you thinking about it long after you finish the book.
Fans of suspense thrillers, crime fiction and the edge of your seat thrillers will enjoy Love Gone Mad. This was my first read by Mark Rubinstein, but I assure you it will not be my last.
