Deadline by John Wayne Comunale

Cody is a talented voiceover artist who narrates books as a career. As a performer honing a craft, his acting and impressions landed his skills with a talent service. Not necessarily happy with his present employment along with a relationship breakup and a bruised ego, Cody’s life seems to be at an all-time low. Then a mysterious job offer arrives that seems to good to be true. After signing on the dotted line and beginning his new project of audio recording, the workloads increase and the deadlines become more difficult to meet. Infractions of these punctual demands become more and more severe, to the point of unthinkable extreme punishments.

John Wayne Comunale has exceeded his own talent with the release of Deadline. He allows the reader to partake in a rather special kind of contract with hidden clauses and terms that seem to be out of the realm of horrific possibility. John Wayne provides an unlimited amount of cringe worthy moments always leading to a constant anticipation of the next chapter. The word “demise” comes to mind as empathy for the main character and his surreal surroundings become very real.

Tense dialogue and a context of dread create plenty of dark junctures that seem to have an eerie nonfiction vibe. Following in the footsteps of Stephen King’s Quitters Inc, the narrative of Deadline is a grueling journey leading up to a highly anticipated ending that would leave David Fincher speechless. I usually take notes as I’m reading a book for my review…ya know it’s good when you forget to jot down your thoughts. This is John Wayne Comunale at his best and comes with the highest of recommendations.
Reading and understanding the “fine print” is essential when entering a contract, beware the breach and its penalties. Listen to the clicking of the Metronome, the sound is a representation of your countdown to carnage. So grab your eyeliner, give it a good smear and get your John Wayne on. A five star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Horror Bookworm Recommendation.
