Whore

23365392 “Whore” by Matt Shaw
Synopsis: WARNING: THIS IS AN EXTREME HORROR NOVEL. There is gore. There is bad language. There are scenes of a sexual nature. But hidden underneath it all is also a chilling story. Please do not purchase this book if you are easily shocked, disgusted or offended. This book is not for you.
Part of the Black Cover Range.
Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world. Sessions range in price from the cost of a pint – for a quick fumble in an alleyway with some jacked up junkie – to an arm and a leg for an ‘elite’ escort. But some men pay more for their appointment. Some men pay with their lives.
From Matt Shaw, the author of Sick B*stards and PORN comes WHORE – the tale of a working girl who likes to teach all ‘cheating’ men a lesson they’ll never forget.

*Warning – triggering for rape, child abuse, prostitution, violence

4 out of 5 stars

This is one of the books in the Black Cover series. Black covers because, and I’m assuming here, that there is no cover that would do justice to the violence contained in this short book. I think a book with the title “Whore” is a little self-explanatory but this book has a very dark back story and a very dark present day which was an added bonus.

It’s not for the faint of heart. If you can read triggering topics, go for it. If not, then please don’t as it’s quite descriptive with those triggers.

What I liked: The story is excellent although short. You are drawn in to the main character’s world immediately, and kept there as she flashes back to her twisted childhood and adolescence and present day dealings with her “johns”. She’s quite pragmatic and not ashamed of what she does for a living, preferring to call herself a prostitute as she feels that’s the best description of what she does.

The one thing she cannot abide is a man who is cheating … which is most of her clients. She has her own way of dealing with them that ensures they will never cheat again.

I also like the fact that the entire story takes place within our character’s home. It really sets the tone for how in control and how vulnerable she really is.

What I didn’t like: I have nothing to put here.

This is a jarring book, and one you must read if you like to be shocked. The ending is delightfully twisted and unexpected and I expect I will be looking for a lot more of Matt Shaw’s books!
