Publisher's Summary

After a tragic accident devastates his family, 16-year-old Rick St. James starts his junior year of high school without any friends in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah. When he meets Kevin Vincent, he's too distracted by the promise of new friends to see that Kevin has secrets of his own.

Having created an environment where he's feared and admired by his classmates, Kevin finds pleasure in using his good looks and violence to control and manipulate those around him. Secretly he cruises the gay club scene, turning tricks to earn money so he can party and get high.

As Rick's dad becomes increasingly violent and abusive at home, the two form a surprising and volatile trust. In this battle of wills, their precarious friendship will either keep their lives from blowing up around them or possibly light the fuse that will cause the explosion.

Disclaimer: This audiobook contains extremely strong language, graphic violence, and sexual situations. It is not suitable for young audiences.

    Story
    "Powerful and Heart wrenching..."

    What a powerful story and a powerful message! Not wanting to share too much and spoil the essence of this story, I'll just say that the author's ability to describe the emotional quagmire that exists in certain environments brought back some painful memories and fed into my desire for obtaining a happily ever after. Though the ending was not how I had hoped, it fit with the message of this story. The writing techniques of PT Denys and the expert narration provided by Bryant Sullivan made 11 plus hours fly by. A definite recommend...

    "Wow... This Book Took My Breath Away"

    This was a depressing book. Good but depressing. It just reminds you that their really is some crazy people out there in this world. I have to listen to a happy story after this one, to help balance my world view.

    Story
    "Heartbreaking and Devastating"
    Where does Violence Begets... rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Emotionally, I've never been so moved by an Audiobook before. Mr. Denys crafts a thoughtful and intense story filled with heartbreak, abuse, and the horrors of when that abuse comes from within the home.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kevin, the lost soul.


    What about Bryant Sullivan’s performance did you like?

    Bryant Sullivan's performance was incredible!


    If you could rename Violence Begets..., what would you call it?

    "Hard to Listen" or "Prepare for Annihilation"


    Any additional comments?

    Many times, I wanted to bust into this book and deal with the two fathers. It wouldn't have been pretty in the least.
