Latest Review: The Face of Fear by R. J. Torbert

Tim

Tim spoke publicly about his involvement in the investigation before his death. However, if it wasn't for Paul's plan, Tim would never have been involved in any investigation. Thus, do you think Paul felt some degree of guilt in regards to Tim's death?

We didn't see a lot of Paul's guilt after Tim died, but he probably did feel some. Due to the fact that Tim had also been interested in dating Rachelle, and that Paul was a bit of a coward when it came to her, perhaps one could stretch it to assume that Paul was conflicted about how he felt regarding Tim's death. On the one hand, a friend and valued community member was gone, and on the other, so was Paul's most forefront romantic competitor.

I'm with you on this one. I feel like his determination to find the killer only came as part of doing his job.

I'm actually quite glad that we didn't see too much guilt over Tim's death. Paul was a bit of a wet anyway, and then to laden him with guilt would have made him seem too pathetic.

I have not read the full book yet, but I can guess from the reviews that he was a bit confused about his feelings on the death of Tim.

Yes, I believe that Paul or anyone else would feel guilty to some degree. Tim was one of the people that Paul reached out to because he was among those that Paul trusted. I mean if I were in Paul's shoes I would feel bad for bringing him in on anything that he was not at all already apart of which in turn ended up costing him his life.

It's Paul's faul that Tim got into the situation, but absolutely not his fault he talked and got into a fatal situation as a result. We are solely responsible for our words and actions.
