Title: Beware the Devil’s Hug

Author: Marvin D. Wilson

Publisher: allthingsthatmatterpress

Copyright: TBD


Format: TBD

Genre: TBD

“The Old Man wagged his hand in the air. “That is of no significance. I am here to ask to take this man’s place. Please—kill me instead.”” Thus we start our journey through the world of Marvin Wilson in a book in which even names are elusive. But, each word hits harder than a punch from George Foreman. What does it all mean? As you weave your way down the path before you, there are glimpses of truth, but then you ask yourself, which is truth and which is a lie? What does it all mean?

This is not a book to be taken lightly. One can just read it, but it will lose all its power. Read this in depth and you will reveal yourself to you. Are you really who you say you are? This book is really a mirror into one’s own soul and the trip might prove painful. However, rest assured; by the last sentence you will see yourself and those around you in a much different light. That old man you keep seeing on the bench, is he the one? Maybe that old lady pushing that cart? What action is due on your part when you see them? Do you ignore them, or are they asking for help that only you, the enlightened reader can provide?

Find out for yourself just how powerful a book with no names really is. Marvin is a very good writer as you will discover. While you’re at it, pick up “Owen Fiddler” and “I Romanced the Stone”.


  1. I read (and loved) OWEN FIDDLER, and I am definitely going to have to get Marvin’s other two books. This one sounds quirky and intriguing!

  2. Thanks for sharing the great review, Ron! It sounds very mysterious, and since Marvin wrote it and is such an excellent writer, I certainly want to read it!

  4. Hmmm…what’s not to love about Marvin’s stories, I ask myself? His style just kills me. It’s so…so…so…facetious. He inspires my own writing. Good going Marvin.

    Ron, your site is in such good taste. Very professional, clear and neat. I love it.

  5. Hi Ron,
    I’ve already decided to buy this book when it’s published. But the way you’ve reviewed it, makes me more impatient to read it.

    I’ve read Marvin’s first 2 books and I love them both. I’m sure I’ll feel the same with this one.

    Ron, the title of your blog intrigues me. What exactly does it mean?
