Unthinkable   By: (1909-1965)

Book cover

Unthinkable by Roger Phillips Graham is a thought-provoking and gripping novel that explores the depths of human psyche and the fragile boundaries of morality. In this highly intense psychological thriller, Graham weaves together a complex web of characters and events that keeps readers engrossed from the very first page.

The story centers around protagonist Amy Miles, a young forensic psychologist who is thrust into a twisted game of cat and mouse with a sadistic serial killer. As Amy delves deep into the darkest corners of the human mind, she is forced to confront her own demons while trying to decipher the cryptic messages left by the murderer. The author’s attention to detail and extensive research on forensic psychology shines through, creating an authentic and realistic portrayal of the field.

Graham’s writing style is crisp and concise, keeping the narrative moving at a brisk pace. The author cleverly maintains a sense of suspense throughout the novel, with unexpected plot twists and turns that constantly keep readers guessing. Each chapter ends on a tantalizing note, leaving the reader eager to unravel the next layer of the mystery. Moreover, the author’s ability to delve into the psyche of his characters and explore the darker aspects of human nature adds depth and complexity to the story.

One aspect that sets Unthinkable apart from other crime thrillers is the depth and complexity of its characters. Amy Miles is depicted as a flawed yet relatable protagonist, whose vulnerabilities and strengths are skillfully brought to life. As she battles her own inner demons, the reader becomes emotionally invested in her journey. The secondary characters are equally well-developed, each with their own unique motivations and hidden secrets.

Furthermore, Graham’s exploration of ethical dilemmas adds an intriguing layer to the story. The author poses thought-provoking questions about the limits of human morality, forcing the reader to reflect on their own beliefs and values. This introspective aspect of Unthinkable elevates it beyond a mere page-turner, engaging the reader on a deeper intellectual level.

However, the novel does have a few minor flaws. Some of the dialogue can feel a bit stilted and unnatural, detracting from an otherwise immersive reading experience. Additionally, there are a few instances where the plot becomes predictable, but Graham manages to maintain a sense of tension and suspense regardless.

In conclusion, Unthinkable is a thrilling and psychologically stimulating novel that will keep readers hooked until the very end. Graham’s masterful storytelling and intriguing exploration of the human psyche make this book a worthy addition to the psychological thriller genre. Fans of gripping crime novels will find themselves completely absorbed in the labyrinthine world of Unthinkable, eagerly turning the pages to uncover the truth behind the unthinkable.

In the story THE DESPOILERS in the October 1947 Amazing Stories I raised the question, "Is there anything absolutely beyond human comprehension?" In that story I gave humanity a thousand years to give birth to one man who could comprehend the incomprehensible.

The incomprehensible is harder to portray in a story than is merely the unknown. If we denote anything incomprehensible by the symbol X, we can describe what X is to a certain extent by knowing what it is not. We can, gradually, gain a certain insight into what it is by comparing it to what IS comprehensible.

In the last analysis the universe of normalcy is incomprehensible. We have made progress in comprehending it because we have isolated it into small bundles of events that can be dealt with by the human intellect.

We have arrived at certain basic pictures of the behavior of the incomprehensible. We have found a certain stability existing in the picture we have built up. We have searched the heavens and found that stars are made up of the same elements as the Earth with a few exceptions... Continue reading book >>
