The Usurper King by Zeb Haradon

51nfZRINqmLWhat if Ted Bundy was never caught? What if he stopped killing people and set his mind on his budding political career. If you’re unfamiliar with Ted Bundy’s interest in politics, I suggest you do a little research on this monster of a man. He was an interesting character and could have done some amazing things in real life if he had not had a taste for killing young ladies.

In Zeb Haradon’s book ‘The Usurper King‘ we’re taken into an alternate universe where Bundy wasn’t caught and wasn’t fried in the electric chair.

In the book, Bundy runs for the 2016 presidency. My opinion (and this is my blog, so I’m allowed) is that he’d be better than the one we have now.

Anyway, there are some freakish things in the book, like predicting the future with animal entrail reading (I do lots of divination, but I’ll pass on this one). As gruesome as it is, a guy with a biological virus starts seeing things in the animal entrails that tell him about Bundy’s past… his murderous history. The guy, Jim, works with another person to stop Bundy from becoming anymore powerful.

I found this story extremely intriguing, especially since Bundy is my favorite serial killer (say what you will about that statement… it’s healthy to study the things that make bad people bad and to find interesting things about them which make you see them as a little more than the monster they were).

If you like stories about alternate universes which borderline ours in who’s there, but not in what is happening, you’ll dig this book. Thing “Fringe” meets “Aquarius.”
