Book Description

What if you knew the truth, but no one believed you?

What if you hardly believed it yourself?

This is the predicament that biologist Tyler Vaughan finds himself in when people start vanishing from the little town of Crooked Creek, Oregon. In the course of his research, Tyler has inadvertently captured on one of his thermal-imaging remote cameras a photograph of a creature known as Slender Man -- a faceless humanoid with long, thin arms and legs, whose presence is always associated with abductions, especially of children.

The problem is, who will believe him? The Crooked Creek Chief of Police Dale Blodgett (short for "Wensleydale" -- his parents were fans of "Wallace & Gromit") certainly has no reason to, especially when the missing people return, apparently unscathed, and claiming to have no memory of what happened during their absence. Chief of Police Blodgett figures that if they're home, safe and sound, there's no reason to investigate further.

Tyler has one person in his corner, however -- flower child and organic herbal tea maker Rainey Carrington, who realizes that the abducted children may not have returned as safe and sound as they seem to be. Plus, she's got a serious crush on Tyler. Together, can they put together the pieces of what's happening in Crooked Creek, and stop it... before one of them disappears, too?

5.0 out of 5 stars No Lemons Here January 21, 2012
By Mercury
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't know what Scarry's problem is, other than obviously not having read the book and horrible spelling, but Signal to Noise is a fun read! The characters are well-drawn and often hilarious (particularly the sheriff's tarot-card reading, hippie mother!) and the mix of serious mystery and suspense with tongue-in-cheek humor is exactly the kind of book I enjoy. Bonnet is one of the authors you find here who are self-published, and so the books are really affordable, and I think worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book creeped me out... and I loved it! April 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Gordon Bonnet spins a paranormal tale that will have you looking over your shoulder and turning on the lights before you walk into a room. This was a wonderfully written book with excellent dialog that I found quite effortless to read. I can't say enough about the visuals and how they played on my most fundamental and primal fears. My only criticism would be a reveal that I felt happened a little too soon, but one weak part of one chapter didn't ruin it. Not by a long shot. I would have given it 4.5 stars had Amazon let me but Gordon gets the round up to a 5 because he kept the pace quick and and wrote a thoroughly enjoyable book. I'll be adding the rest of his work to the TBR pile shortly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! June 7, 2013

I really enjoyed this book. Totally creepy and just what I was looking for. The ending had a twist I wasn't expecting, and wasn't necessarily what I wanted, but I still wasn't disappointed in the book. There isn't a lot of fiction out there on Slenderman, and this one is the top of the list if you ask me!

Nice clean prose, good pacing, sympathetic characters. Lots of promise. Looks like a set-up for a series. If it is, I'm on board for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacularly Eerie February 8, 2013

This book perfectly draws you in as you can't help but want to solve the mystery that is Slender Man. Not your traditional sci-fi horror, but it will definitely have you looking over your shoulder the next time you're in the dark.

Excellent character development and emotion quickly gets your mind engrained in the story. Signal to Noise displays a great balance between lighthearted humor and thought evoking, dark themes.

Definitely a solid, quick read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff here January 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was expecting this to be a horror story, not science fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling of the first two thirds. Every character sounded dramatically different, the descriptions were solid and made me just visualize the place, and the creep factor was through the roof!

[MASSIVE SPOILERS BELOW]

Consciously or not, but the book was mostly suspenseful. I'm saying mostly, because right around when Tyler had to go looking for his missing tea girl, the action slowed to a grind and all the characters you would expect to be proactive suddenly fizzled out. Sigh. It just makes me so frustrated when I know there are people in grave danger, and the characters in charge of saving them sit at a bar drinking beer or nap in their living room. Really? That's less believable to me than seeing them storm the lodge with sticks. The farting dog was meaningless and kind of gross to read about. His issue was discussed so often and in such detail that I was half-expecting the dog to defeat whoever was the bad guy with his sudden toxic farts, but that didn't happen. I mean, why write about it at all? Not my kind of humor. The Slender Man.... gosh, I have no idea what I was expecting, but not an alien. Certainly not a deus ex machina problem-resolving, wordy alien no one is particularly freaked out with. The epilogue was frankly just awful, so I skipped it.

But overall I really enjoyed this, couldn't put it down most of the time.
