Yellow by Aron Beauregard

Yellow by Aron Beauregard

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THEY TOOK EVERYTHING?

Oliver Fitch has a troubling issue; he lives in a state of constant terror. After purchasing a convenience store in a once civil society, the streets around him have rapidly devolved into utter lawlessness. They’re now festering with sinister gutter scum that only live to harass and intimidate him. His pathetic profits are gouged under the threat of violence and there isn’t a damn thing he can do about it.

Because in a city with no rules, where the sun never shines, the authorities are no help. In fact, they’re an equal part of the problem. The relentless fear of confrontation is so obvious that even Oliver’s wife Lydia has grown to resent his spineless existence. The absence of bravado opens the door to a horrific home invasion that leaves the miserable pair savagely maimed. From there, things only get worse until the criminal leeches have taken everything. Until there’s nothing left inside but hate and the gnawing hunger for revenge. Until a switch finally flips and Oliver realizes that they all have to die.

The Mort Stone Review

Yellow: Gone are the days when you could throw out this ‘offensive’ word at somebody…

Yip, it went the same route as Yosemite Sam’s “lily-livered, bow-legged varmints” and calling Eric Cartman a “fat f*ck.”

Do you remember a time when you could have called a politician an abydocomist, Miley Cyrus a bedswerver, a Kardashian cumberworld, someone from the South a drate-poke, a teenager a loiter-sack, a lawyer a klazomaniac, Keith Richard a fustylug or Oliver Fitch, the main character in this book, a wandought?

That’s right, Oliver is a very scared, spineless coward, whose wife has lost all her respect for him. They own a failing convenience store in lawless town, where the police are as corrupt as the criminals.

It was only a matter of time, really. After a horrific home invasion leaves him with nothing but permanent scars, the anger takes over. The only thing worth living for was revenge.

And he takes it with a brutality unlike anything the bad guys have ever seen.

Cue Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero” and let the fun start right now!

You don’t need to be a rich man with a Chiroptera fetish, an Australian Anti-Semite with a limp, a dead musician who gets resurrected by a bird or an Irishman with an American accent and a particular set of skills to go ape-shit crazy on the bad guys.

While vigilante justice is frowned upon by most in ‘civilized society’, we are also fascinated by the concept—proven by many a successful movies all over the world. This book is a homage to the Death Wish franchise.

BEWARE! This book is hardcore, brutal and extreme—if you are not into extreme horror, this one will shock you.

The Elizabeth L. Review

A fantastically brutal read.

Oliver Fitch lives in a constant state of terror as the neighborhood around the convenience store he owns and lives above devolves into another ghetto. The threat of violence is constant, and the authorities meant to serve and protect are part of the problem. Even his wife thinks him a spineless coward.

After a home invasion that leaves him scarred for life, Oliver is forced to stand by and watch as everything he cares about gets stripped away from him. But they also take away his fear. When Oliver realizes he has nothing left to lose, he becomes a force to be reckoned with in this epic tale of vengeance.

This book was so much more than I expected when I first started reading it. I mean, who doesn’t love a good revenge story? But this book is so much more than that, and the ending really blew me away. Aron Beauregard is a superb storyteller, and I can’t recommend this book enough for splatter fans. I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.

MORT STONE

Mort Stone lives in untamed Africa, where he rides his lion to work every morning to slave away as a scientist who learned how to fake competency.

Reading is his passion…well, the one he can admit to, anyway. As an aggressive pacifist, he chooses to fight vicariously through stories which can bring him no physical harm.

While he is almost confidant that his IQ is in the top 50%, his wife regularly reminds him of all the stupid things he does. He will neither admit nor deny the accusations of sarcasm, but he can act like he cares. Most of the time.

As an avid reader of horror and thrillers, and somewhat of a movie buff in those genres, he still blames his insomnia on Global Warming. Because he can.

He would also like to apologize in advance for any swear words which might slip through…he will blame that on the insomnia.
