This Will Break Every Bone in Your Heart by Keith Anthony Baird

With a twist so sharp I think I hurt my neck, This Will Break Every Bone in Your Heart was one hell of an unpredictable tale!

I can’t say too much about this story without spoilers, so… this is a psychological/mystery/thriller that starts with the beginning of Zachary’s life. He’s brought into an “institution” at a very early age and is matched with a family when he was around 5-6 years old. From there on out, Zachary’s life is so full of sadness and tragedy, it’s hard to even believe.

The reader is given clues here and there about what is really going on. However, this reader missed some of them which made one section absolutely jaw dropping, but that still wasn’t even the end yet!

That’s it, that’s all I’m saying! (Well, I would also love to read more about this world and the institution. But now, that’s really it.)

Highly recommended!

I purchased this short tale with my hard earned $1.21.

Placed in an institute at an early age, a boy is conditioned to think and behave in ways determined by a shadow organisation. Along with many thousands of others globally, he is released into society and monitored in the care of his artificial family. Traits such as empathy and compassion are meaningless devices, and his life unfolds within a world which makes little sense at all.

Can he ever overcome this programming? Will he establish a full and rewarding life for himself, or will it all come crashing down in an explosion of violence?

Whatever the outcome, one thing is certain, 'they' will be watching.
