Review

"Man of Wax grabs you by the throat in the first chapter and never lets go. A suspense-filled thrill ride with plenty of shocks along the way. Read it!"

Imagine a Reality Show and a Simon Says game from hell. The goal is to survive, but the odds are not in your favor and your loved ones will die, too. Well written, fast paced and unfortunately believable. With this book Robert Swartwood is rapidly becoming one of my "go to" authors for a good read. He also keeps getting me in trouble at work. I will be reading during my lunch or break and he keeps me so enthralled I don't want to stop. So, you might want to set aside a weekend when you can just sit down and read this. Need to keep my job so that I can buy the next book (due April 2012).

After reading and greatly enjoying The Dishonored Dead, Swartwood's zombie novel, I decided to buy this novel. It is not a horror novel, but instead a very suspenseful and well written thriller. The basic plot, a person threatened to perform certain actions by an unknown foe, is not new but Swartwood infuses some originality into the story and I was riveted to the end, waiting to see how it all resolved. The ending is satisfying in a number of ways, but the story is not fully finished as this is a planned trilogy. Swartwood's writing continues to impress and I have already started reading another of his books.

I've read most of his books by now, and they all have a special quality to them. This one started off feeling a little like "Serial Killer's Wife," with a main character being controlled by an ominous voice on the other end of the phone. But then it veered into something I've never read before, and was punctuated with some serious action throughout. The ending's unresolved until the second book, I guess. Something to look forward to.

Disclosure: I bought this book and am not a friend of the author.

Absolutely loved this book! Could not put it down. Finished it in a day & a half! The author keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time and I had to just keep turning the page to find out what was going to come next. The characters were great and I had an image of each one in my head. The end was good but I definetly cannot wait for the second book to come out in April so I can continue with this story!!!

I've been on a bend lately, trying to go with lesser known writers, seeking out the pearls, if you will. And frankly, I'm paying for college at the same time, so the more inexpensive the novel is, that's a going point as well. Robert Swartwood's "Man of Wax" is a very interesting take on what a man would do when he is pushed to his limits. Our hero (loosely speaking) has found himself abducted from his loving home and family, transported across the country, and finds himself in a terrifying predicament. The story jumpstarts from there, and continues fairly strongly from there. The writer does an excellent job of placing you behind the eyes of a man who has everything to lose, and must play a game with the devil to keep his family safe. The storyline is a twisted cross of the SAW series, and the short (book) series Run for Your Life. All in all, the writing is sound, the story a terribly compelling tale, and the characters (majority) believable. There was nothing that was overly gory, although the deaths are detailed. Those that complained that it was too gruesome or graphic... well, please note that yes, you are shockingly enough, browsing in the horror section of Amazon. Deal or cut. Overall, an exceptional start to what looks to be an excellent trilogy.

This is the first book I've read by this author and it wont be the last. He keeps you hooked from the very beginning. I read reviews by other people saying they couldn't finish it because it was disturbing, well then don't read a thriller/horror novel. Its not meant to be a love story! I will definitely put this author in my favorites list right next to Blake Crouch, J.A. Konrath Bentley Little and Stephen King! Kudos to this author...bring on part 2.

I could not put this book down until I was done! It grabbed me right from the beginning and wouldn't let me go. The twists and turns were not what I expected. I cannot wait to get to the second book in this series.
