5.0 out of 5 stars ABSORBING FROM BEGINNING TO END December 14, 2012
By Lizzy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nigel Price grew up with a temper. A bad one. And one night, while driving along the cliff of a dangerous road, his road rage toward another driver escalates into the unthinkable -- murder.

What happens to a man who tries to escape the anger issues of his youth and now has committed murder, by chance? How does he reconcile that within himself? Nigel, though he goes on living, withdraws from life and from his marriage. As the years go on, his haunting takes on new forms. He is left wondering what is real and what is not.

I read this book in three sittings, but had time permitted, I could have read it in one. Maria Savva did a brilliant job building suspense, painting a portrait of a haunted man, and evenly pacing the novel so that it remained a constant thriller throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed this chilling tale. Very well plotted; a great choice if you're looking for a book that will completely absorb you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh Perspective on Murder September 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It’s very easy for fans of murder mysteries, thrillers, and police procedurals to become hardened to the realities of a murder. The largest section of my local library is dedicated to this genre. Murder is an everyday experience for television watchers and movie goers. Most of the murderers are portrayed as very dark and evil. The stories are usually told from the point of view of the persons trying to bring them to justice.

“Haunted” gives us a fresh and unique perspective on murder. It connects our senses to the horrors of what it is like for a relatively normal person to live with the consequences of committing a murder. There is no detective in hot pursuit. There is no suspicious spouse, neighbor, or co-worker. All of the pressure and punishment comes from the protagonist’s conscience.

Author Maria Savva does an excellent job of revealing all of the repercussions of the murder to both the murderer and his family & friends, as well as the victim and the significant others in her life. The novel shows us how the murderer grew into a man who could allow his anger to control his actions, and how doing so radically changed the arc of his life. The author gives us a much needed counterbalance to the callousness brought on by overexposure to murder.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spectacular Character Study March 5, 2013
Format:Paperback
Nigel Price was haunted by his temper his entire life. But he never truly went over the edge until one fateful, tragic night when he could no longer free himself from the clutches of a sometimes uncontrollable rage.

I wanted to hate Nigel. And for a time, I did. He had committed the ultimate unforgivable and egregious act upon another human being. But as the virtual pages turned over in my Kindle, Maria Savva slowly, effectively, develops and exposes new facets of our protagonist's personality. I began to empathize with Nigel; Ms Savva expertly fashions a tale that gives you insight into a mind that is at once murderous but deeply human.

There is much to love about this book. Ms Savva does a superb job of pulling the reader into a new and vivid reality. I am in the US physically but while reading this story, I was right there in the UK observing Nigel's mental struggles and pondering just where it all went wrong for this sad and troubled man. The imagery is first-rate, as is the outstanding character development. I highly recommend this book. -- Robert Helle (Due to some technical issues, I had to use my wife Carol's account to post this review.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Controlled by his Murderous Past January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Author Maria Savva's enviable skill at drawing her readers in from the onset and keeping the suspense alive on every page is unmistakably apparent with her latest book `Haunted'.

This nail-biting story revolves around her central character, Nigel Price. As a youngster Nigel suffered anger issues, which became worse as the years passed. Fast-forward to an evening in his thirties when he is overpowered by a fit of road rage on a narrow cliff-top road. Nigel Price commits the unthinkable, murder. Riddled with guilt his life is no longer his own. As readers we are taken inside Nigel's mind living as a tormented soul uncertain of reality.

I highly recommend `Haunted' to readers who enjoy edge-of-your-seat thrillers with a paranormal twist.

In a moment of road rage his life is forever changed on a dark stormy night on a little traveled road Nigel did something that will haunt him forever. A must read if you love psychological suspense stories. I look forward to reading more books by Maria Savva

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunted haunted me... March 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I normally don't read this genre of book, so for that reason, I wasn't comfortable giving it 5 stars. (I don't know how it really compares to other in the same classification.)

However, I'm glad I stepped out of my normal comfort zone to read Ms. Savva's novel. The characters were well-developed and believable, and I could actually visualize the things Nigel saw and experienced. I generally have a hard time visualizing things, so I consider Ms. Savva's ability to produce images in my mind to be astounding. It's been a few months since I read the book, and I still can see certain scenes as they played out.

I will definitely read more of Ms. Savva's novels in the future.
