5 Star IHIBRP Book Review: “Longing” by R.M. Gauthier

This Short Story Will Have You “Longing” For Much, Much More!

Fans of R.M. Gauthier’s “Control” will appreciate this short but fascinating back story about Landon Miller’s Chief of Security, Leroy. This flashback into Leroy’s past is an examination uncovers his main motive for becoming Miller’s protective head bouncer, investigator, monitor, and all-around dependable man. Gauthier takes us through a likely series of events that at first seem predictable, but a few surprise twists and turns keep the reader guessing as Leroy searches for his missing sister on the seedier side of town. Eventually, his search comes to an end, and even here Gauthier’s brilliance for keeping us in the dark right to the very end shines through. We suddenly find Leroy in the employ of the enigmatic Mr. Miller, playing host to Lexi Ross—the woman who seems to elicit more than a passing interest in Leroy’s Boss. Gauthier is a master of the cliffhanger, and in that regard, “Longing” effectively cuts off here, where “Control” begins. If anything, this novella is much too brief, and one thing’s for certain—Gauthier’s short story will have you “Longing” for much, much more!
