Review: ‘Sinema 2: Sympathy for the Devil’ by Rod Glenn.

Sinema 2


In ‘Sinema: The Northumberland Massacre’, Han Whitman went on a rampage around a village called Haydon. Not content with slaughtering 395 innocents, Han is back to carry out “Stage 2” of his twisted plan. However, someone’s on his tail and there’s more than one person with an interest in his whereabouts. Han’s conscience also seems less than willing to accept his transgressions, he’s haunted by a voice he doesn’t recognise.

“Phase 2” sees movie-addict Whitman turn vigilante, turning on the foulest members of society. Rod Glenn writes Hannibal Whitman’s story with such aplomb, his descriptions are scarily vivid and the situations he puts his character in are completely believable.

Han Whitman is the kind of character that, logically, you should despise but there is something so human about him that it’s impossible not to root for him.

This is an ambitious novel with plenty of twists, turns and red herrings. Glenn doesn’t shy away from the gory details of Whitman’s exploits and this only adds to the gritty feel of the novel. There are certain parts of this book that are so stomach-churning that it makes for difficult reading although Han’s cruel exploits always seem realistic.

This may not be a story for the faint-hearted but if you can get over the blood and guts, it is a great read.
