Scorn Kills


Scorn Kills is a disturbing and poignant look at unfaithfulness.
William Branch brags that he has been dubbed as The King of True Crime. A successful writer, he authored 15 wildly popular books, one of which was made into a hit movie.
Now Bill’s nothing special to look at. He’s plain and weak looking. But he’s got one thing other men want — money and lots of it. You see Bill makes good money writing but that’s nothing compared to his wife’s bank account. She’s loaded. He married into money and he’s not ashamed to spend it. His wife doesn’t mind as long as he’s faithful.
But Bill has an Achilles Heel. He fantasizes about the women he meets. All is fine until he meets a femme fatale who loves money just as much as he does. One sultry glance is all it takes for Bill to blindly enter into an affair that rapidly gets out of hand. He’s powerless to stop himself even though he knows his wife’s bound to find out.
He tries to juggle his lover and his wife but what he doesn’t realize is that there’s a secret involving one of the two women in his life that’s about to explode. When it does, it will twist their lives in ways none of them ever expected.

“Scorn Kills” by Suzi Albracht grabbed my attention with the first sentence and held it throughout this book. A somewhat tongue in cheek examination of man’s weakness when it comes to women and money (not necessarily in that order) Albracht created a character I wanted to smack in the head. From the beginning Bill Branch is obviously an opportunist. I liked him and almost felt sorry for him when he first became entangled in the web of lies he spun. But as the story unfolded I began to lose patience with good old Bill. Without giving away too much I will say I had very little sympathy for him at the end. He is never satisfied with what he has and always seems to be looking for something better. His well to do wife has secrets of her own that make the story even more compelling. The ending was a surprise I didn’t see coming. If this story has a moral it might be “when you sell your soul to the devil, expect to get burned”.

What I liked most about this book is the main character’s snappy attitude, outrageous motivation and wacky inner dialog. There were less than a half dozen well-drawn characters, and each character’s motivation, problems and actions were easy to follow which made SCORN KILLS a quick, enjoyable read. I don’t want to drop any spoilers, but can’t resist saying that the main character is a really lovable jerk (and ‘jerk’ is being polite)! I know this doesn’t make sense but it’s true. The main character is simply up to no good, but he’s telling you the story while he’s doing it and his inner thoughts and foibles are often hilarious. He rationalizes his outrageous actions in such a way that I started to like him. Or . . . maybe I didn’t really like him but I really enjoyed going along for the ride while he got himself into deeper and deeper trouble. Shakespeare wrote, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” but I don’t think Shakespeare meant it as a joke!

About the author

I love to write horror thrillers with intense personal relationships between characters. I started reading earlier in life than most of my friends and spent many hours hidden in closets and under beds, sneaking in just another ten minutes of whatever book I was reading. As soon as I was old enough, my mother would send me to library to pick up books for her. This delighted me because it opened up a whole new world of books not available in school.

I read everything I could get my hands on but was drawn to sci-fi, horror and thrillers. As I matured, I would say my main influences became Stephen King, Dean Koontz and William Faulkner. My writing definitely reflects those influences.

I can honestly says my twitter bio describes me to a T – Write, scare myself, turn all the lights on, write some more. Take a break, play pool, kick butt/get butt kicked, go write more horror, double lock door.
