We all wear masks, and Afton Morrison is no exception.
A small-town librarian with a dark side, Afton, twenty-six, has suppressed violent impulses her entire adult life. Impulses that demand she commit murder.
Blending her urges with reason, Afton stalks a known sexual predator, intending to kill him. But her plan, inspired by true crime and hatched with meticulous care, is interrupted by a mysterious figure from her past. A dangerous man that lurks in the shadows, watching, threatening to turn the huntress into the hunted.
Go Home, Afton is the first of four parts in a new serial thriller by author Brent Jones. Packed with grit and action, The Afton Morrison Series delves into a world of moral ambiguity, delivering audiences an unlikely heroine in the form of a disturbed vigilante murderess.

I am one of the last stops on the blog tour for this book and I want to thank the author and R&R Book Tours for providing me with a copy to review.
This novella is the first book in a four part series and it’s a great start to a series. It’s fast paced and there’s surprisingly a lot going on in such a short amount of pages.
Afton is the main character and she is a children’s librarian who just so happens to be a psychopath. While she is kind of deranged at a certain point you can’t help but start to feel sorry for her. Brent Jones did a great job at building a character that you know you should hate but you can’t help but root for. She is a very complex character and I can’t wait to see how she grows in the following books.
I love how this book actually makes you think about how this could actually be a possibility in the real world. You never really know the people around you and this novella kind of makes you open your eyes to that.
This book is dark and suspenseful and has some twists thrown in that I didn’t see coming. It ends on a cliffhanger which I don’t like but luckily I don’t have to wait long to read the next book.
