"Killing one person to save a billion isn't a very difficult decision."  ~ 8%

The whole concept of killing one destructive person to save the future of the world is bogus. Same as free will—an accident of human senses. Which makes the institution of the Praesidium very suspect. Their goal is to save humanity from catastrophes by pinpointing the one person that will cause the domino effect. Then order the person to be killed.

In this novel, that one person is Nate's wife, Jenny. He is approached by a mysterious man with an unthinkable command: kill your wife because she is the most destructive person on the earth. Why Nate? He is a stay-at-home dad, a self-proclaimed nobody. The day is like every other until he is kidnapped by a secret society led by a man who claims to know the future. He foresees a billion people will die unless Nate stops Jenny—thus killing his own wife.

Whew, this is deep! It is a matter of morals, manipulation, beliefs and loyalty. It truly makes you think WWID? Would I kill the person I love to save strangers? Would I believe a man who claims to know what the future brings? Hmmm...

The beginning of Unthinkable was a bit iffy. But I quickly thought, why did I ever question a novel written by Brad Parks? He hasn't failed me yet. While I am not a fan of science fiction/paranormal genre, Parks tends to teeter the line. This new release was no different. It pushed the limit of realism in a very unpredictable way. A thriller at its best! Bookhearts, trust me on this: READ IT!

Happy Pub Day, Brad Parks! Unthinkable is now available.
