I received a copy of A Killer Harvest from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI really liked the premise of A Killer Harvest and was excited to dive into it A blind teenager Joshua receives a double corneal transplant following the death of his policeman father but and it s a big but something goes wrong and he receives one cornea from his father and the other from the man who murdered him Soon after Joshua begins to see things he doesn t understand almost as if these things he sees are memories but someone else s memories The book opens with Joshua s adoptive father DI Mitchell Logan and his partner DI Ben Kirk at a construction site asking uestions about a missing and presumed dead woman Things uickly escalate to a dangerous situation and Mitchell is killed by their suspect Simon Bower who in turn is killed by Ben As this all plays out it s clear that the two policemen may not have been acting above board What exactly they were up to before Mitchell is killed is unclear and there are a lot uestions than answersMitchell wanted Joshua to have his eyes in case of his death and the teenager is uickly taken to the hospital to undergo the procedure No one knows there has been a mix up with the eyes The procedure is successful and Joshua can see for the first time You feel for Joshua not just because he has lost his father but also because his friends almost immediately distance themselves from him They are blind and the teens had all been attending a special school which Joshua can no longer attend He has gained his sight but has lost so muchWhen Simon Bower s partner decides to exact revenge for his friend s death things start to get complicated At this time I feel the story starts to get a bit out of control The violence increases as the believability factor decreases The idea of cellular memory is interesting and while I was initially intrigued the I read the I felt it was a bit over the top here There is suspension of belief and then there is you re kidding me right The implausibility of the story was too much for me in the end I like the basic idea in A Killer Harvest and the writing is solid and the story moves uickly There are uite a few characters and unfortunately not all are well developed Joshua is a good character that evokes sympathy in the reader He rarely catches a break and even with his newly gained sight things are difficult for him and you can t help but root for the teenager Aside from the far fetched elements there is an underlying mystery which is good and there is a twist that I didn t see coming A lot of readers love A Killer Harvest and I think those who are better able to suspend their belief will enjoy it than I did

Review A Killer HarvestA Killer Harvest

A Killer Harvest Read ¶ 0 Read Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Paul Cleave Review A Killer Harvest Estigating the homicide of a young woman The suspect Simon Bowers is killed by Logan's partner Ben whose intentions are murkier than expected After this tragedy Joshua is handed an opportunity he can't refuse a new pair of eyes But a mishap during the surgery leads to Joshua unknowingly getting one eye from his father and the other from Simon As Joshua navigates a world of sight he gets glimpses of what his eyes might have witnessed in their previous l. This book is intense in every way There are moments that feel like the grand finale but the book just keeps going It deals with a lot of really fascinating topics cellular memory uestions of morality the bonds of friendship and a teenager experiencing vision for the very first time in his entire life It s very twisted and definitely threw me for a couple of loops I was almost having a hard time keeping up This is my first Paul Cleave read and I m impressed He s an author I plan to add to my must read list The chapters are short and relatively concise The stress I felt for the characters was realOne niggle some of the dialogue I rarely hear anyone use the word nor but at least two of the characters did one being a teenager Some of the speech just sounded unnatural to me especially coming for someone so young Very small issue in an incredibly well done book so it doesn t really affect my opinion Joshua firmly believes that he s cursed In his defense he has experienced a lot in his short life He was born blind and his biological parents both died very young in separate incidents when he was a baby He s been cared for since by his aunt and uncle who ve become his mother and father so I ll refer to them as such as he does They all seem to have a healthy and loving relationship until his dad is killed in the line of duty His partner Ben then kills his murderer a man named Simon that was known to themHis dad has one last gift for Josh his eyes He had informed his partner that he wanted them given to his son A local doctor has performed the groundbreaking operation several times Left no time to grieve for his father or even begin to accept his death Josh is rushed into the operating theater Thanks to an inept intern there s a mix up Josh does get one eye from his father but the other came from the man that killed him Simon He can now see but he starts to experience strange dreams and memories glimpses into a past he didn t experience His troubles are far from overMeanwhile the best friend of the slain murderer is out for revenge He s determined to get retribution for his loss and it s not long before Josh and his loved ones are in his sights Sights get it I ll stopAn extremely well put together story Suspend any disbelief you may experience and enjoy the crazy ride I was given an ARC of this book from Net Galley and Atria Books thank you My review is honest and unbiased
