Tony Drury Novella The Man Who Hated
I’m really enjoying the Tony Drury Novella Nostalgia series as you might have seen when I reviewed some of his other books late last year.
The Man Who Hates
Milton Grant (he hates being called Milt) has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Divorced, estranged from his daughter, his only child, he feels he has nothing to live for and nothing to lose!
He begins a self imposed mission to correct what he believes are some of the faults of his fellow human beings.
In his way the fumbling old lady at the supermarket checkout, inconsiderate drivers who don’t appreciate there are other drivers on the road, selfish mobile phone uses who go around in their own little world oblivious to other members of the public around them. He meets Ray, a self satisfied chief executive. who brags at how little he pays in taxes.
Milton starts to teach these thoughtless members of the public a lesson! His methods become more and more extreme as the book progresses. He is spiralling out of control.
Married police officers Lucy and David Smith are putting the pieces together and are close to exposing Milton.
All the pieces come together in an explosive finale.
Will good triumph over evil?
The Man Who Hated is inspired by the 1993 film Falling Down. I haven’t seen the film that stars Michael Douglas but I’ll certainly be looking out for it. This is the fourth book in the Novella Nostalgia series, which links cinema classics with modern stories.
You can purchase Tony Drury Novella Nostalgia book from Amazon and if you have Kindle Unlimited at the moment they are all free.
We all hate unthinking acts by our fellow humans, but how many of us would take the law into our own hands, would you?
