Dr. Aaron Stein – fertility specialist, husband, father, sadistic, power-hungry, controlling sociopath. He’s handsome & charming. He’s a skilled hunter of venerable women. They come from all walks of life. Once caught in his web of deceit he destroys their self-worth and leaves. Those that spurn his advances have their professional lives ruined by him. Events out of his control threaten to expose his double life. Will his ever protecting cousin, Constance, be able to save him this time?
D’Alto’s first novel, He Counts Their Tears, seeks to tell the story of Aaron, his wife, and his victims. It has great potential and could be helpful in spotting monsters such as Aaron. It is an emotionally charged read. While some have said that they loved to hate him, I was totally repulsed.
Unfortunately, the writing is very repetitive, even within the same paragraph at times. I also felt that some of the individual stories could have been better organized along the timeline. The story leaves a number of questions unanswered setting up a sequel. 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
