There are more than 550,000 homeless people in the US in 2018. With limited to no access to basic necessities and services, the ability to remain in touch with family, or to defend themselves — it’s far too often that the homeless are the target of violence. But what happens when those most vulnerable amongst us begin disappearing?
Author Hulden Morse takes readers on a dystopian trip as homeless people begin vanishing from the streets of Chicago in his horrifying debut, Soul Suites [October 28, 2018]. No one gives the disappearances a second thought, until a powerful CEO, Charles Pearson, pretending to be homeless in order to gather information for his company, is found to be one of the missing individuals. A local search ensues, which leads to the discovery of extensive wrongdoings within Pearson’s company. The investigation into numerous disappearances, and the CEO’s incarceration in a strange, dangerous facility, converge in the most unexpected way as the world discovers the truth behind Soul Suites.
Soul Suites depicts unspeakable acts against humans, varying from physical and mental torture, to fertility and developmental issues with characters. Every bit of gore and brutality has a purpose and a place in the story, nothing is written for shock value, though it certainly has the ability to shock.
