1.the state of being well known for some bad quality or deed.
"a day that will live in infamy"
•an evil or wicked act.
It is defined as something so wicked, so horrific, that it can never be forgotten.
To be infamous is to live forever.
It is to leave a legacy so tragic that it changes the very definition of the person who committed the act.
Read fictional takes on infamous people so malicious we will not soon be able to erase them from history.
Was it intentional? So we would never forget?
Why did they do it?
What made them snap?
Would they do it again in an effort to preserve or even erase their sinful legacy? Every story in this anthology was fantastic! Edge of my seat reading for every one of them. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys reading about infamous killers, or just enjoys a book that grabs hold and doesn't let go.
Chainsaw Sisters By Jacob Floyd Genre: Psychological Thriller When Sis wakes up in her father’s backyard, staring at a rickety old shed, she can’t remember how she got there or even who she is. But she remembers Amy, the sister that disappeared long ago, the same sister that she now hears calling to her from the shed.
When Sis enters the shed she discovers that Amy is only there in spirit, and she is speaking to her through a new body, and that body just happens to be a chainsaw.
Amy reveals to Sis that she was murdered by a local crime ring and she needs Sis to seek revenge for her. Sis agrees to the task and as Amy guides her to the home of each man responsible, Sis uses Amy’s new body to hack them to pieces.
But the situation isn’t as straightforward as it seems at first. As Sis comes face to face with each man, she finds herself in the middle of unfamiliar flashbacks that put her at the scene of a heinous crime of which she has no recollection. In time, she begins to believe that these are not her memories and Amy isn’t telling her everything she needs to know.
What lies ahead beyond the coming bloodbath is something darker and more disturbing than Sis could have imagined. Who is Amy? Who is Sis? And what connection do they both have to the men she’s about to murder?
And why is her sister now a telepathic chainsaw? I wasn't really sure what to expect going in since it mentioned a telepathic chainsaw but this book was utterly amazing. My interest was definitely piqued throughout the entire book. Floyd delivered a fantastic ending that was absolutely thrilling! I also have to say that I dig this book cover!
