Review - Only the Stains Remain by Ross Jeffrey

Only the Stains Remain Ross Jeffery Horror Publication date: July 20, 2021 Publisher: Cemetery Gates Media

Only The Stains Remain is the haunting story of Jude and Kyle, two brothers whose lives are destroyed when, following the death of their mother, their three abusive uncles Dwight, Lucius, and Lenny move into the family home. But whilst Jude suffers to a degree, Kyle is the one who takes the brunt of their attention, submitting himself to preserve his younger brother’s innocence.

As a grown man, Jude’s mind turns to vengeance for what they have endured. He has waited a long time, but now he is strong enough, and cold-hearted enough, to do the deed. Enacting one harrowing revenge after another, Jude’s dark quest to punish the wrongs of the past will show that after all is said and done, only the stains of the past will remain.


From beginning to end, this is a book that will grab you. It is centered around a sensitive subject, but Jeffery does it well. I can’t say enough about this book. So powerful and moving. Certain scenes in the book will haunt you long after you have finished reading it. I can already see this one being placed in my top reads for this year.
