We’ve all got skeletons hiding in our closets, but Iraq war veteran turned high school geography teacher Eric Nelson’s are just a little more literal than most.
Unhinged is a thrilling, dialogue driven novel written predominately in second person narrative form. This allows the reader to intimately join the protagonist as he navigates his gradually crumbling life. From his unfulfilling career to the violent co-dependent relationship he forges with medication stealing pharmacist Jaycee Mcdermit, it takes all the strength Eric has to hold the pieces together. And as he begins to lose control of everything around him, he forms a double life and finds purpose in perverse acts of vigilantism, in which he spends his free time luring would be online predators into real life meetings by impersonating minors. It’s then that he executes his own version of justice with terrifying efficiency and ruthlessness. As the novel progresses, and Eric’s many neurosis begin to mix with his spiraling substance abuse; these meetings become less about some twisted sense of valor and more about a way to release stress and maintain some form of control over something. When the voices clawing at the back of Eric’s skull – the ones he battles on a daily basis – finally force him to snap, everyone in his life feels it.
A couple of quotes taken straight out of Unhinged:

“You need to prepare yourself because finally after so many years, you have a purpose again. You wipe the tears from your eyes and feel alive for the first time in as long as you care to remember.”
“The following morning and for the next few days, you meticulously watch the news and listen to local radio while your students have “study time” secretly tuning in for some mention of your recent exploits and just like the guilt you feel for what you did;
