F.B.O.M. by E.M. Bosso

Synopsis from Goodreads:

There is no pain like the loss of a child. When that pain can be directed at one group, in the hands of a dark and brilliant zealot, there are no prisoners no survivors; only a wake of destruction and damnation. 

This is the story of one such man, the woman who loves him, the detective who hates him, and the country girl who understands him far too well. Who will come out on top as they interact in the dark and dangerous world of wealthy sons, mob bosses and corrupt politicians? 
My review:

FBOM is your perfect charity organisation, helping victims of sexual abuse back on their feet with all sorts of brilliant support.  Created by a father, who lost his own daughter to consequences of rape, the organisation helps hundreds of victims in their fight to get their lives back on track. 

However there is a darker side to FBOM.  A side of judgement, retribution, persecution and punishment which, at first, I thought was a marvellous idea. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if victims always got the justice they deserved and their perpetrator was punished in an eye for eye fashion?

However, as cliched as it sounds, the road to evil in a slippery slope.  As the judge or the person giving out punishment – what do you become? Are you any better than them? Where does the just punishment stop and anger driven revenge start. It seems to be a fine line for Michael, the Charity's founder, breaking the punishment laws of the very organisation he build to protect people from violence.

This is a dark, disturbing novel that everyone should read - men and women. It's very well written in a past/present style that I found easy to follow. This novel makes you think and question your own morals and priorities, hence the five stars I have given it.

Thank you to the E.M. Bosso and TBC for access to this book in return for this honest opinion.

My rating: 5/5
