Format: Paperback
I read this book in one sitting, because I didn't have a choice: it gripped me from the beginning and wouldn't let me go.

Greg Chapman tackles the subject of demons, hauntings and evil with vividness and with an increasing sense of unease.

Torment follows the story of Jessica Newman, a woman who lost her mother when she was a child during an exorcism. Jessica travels back to her family home to uncover the truth behind her mother's death and her father's sinister secrets.

Torment is full of dark, creepy moments... it has a way of crawling under your skin and unsettling you. There were certainly a few moments where I found myself feeling uneasy.

Based on this book, I'd definitely be interested in reading more from Greg Chapman. He has done a wonderful job with Torment and I recommend it.

I "met" Greg Chapman on Facebook a while back. At first I just thought he did artwork. I then found out about his writing.

I immediately ordered Torment without knowing a thing about it. I purposely avoided reading reviews or even the synopsis.

First, the one negative - it was too short. Greg could have easily made this into a full length novel. But that doesn't mean he short changed the story.

Other than that, it was phenomenal ! A ghost story mixed with a haunted house led to me reading it in one sitting.

There were times during the story that I was wondering, "Is this happening? Or is Jessica losing her mind? Is the torment of being in her dad's house playing mind games with her or is something more sinister at play?"

I highly recommend reading this and will seek out Greg's other works ASAP.

I didn't know much about this one going in, but I'm glad I took a chance on Greg Chapman's Novella. What I thought might turn out to be a story about an exorcism, turned out to be a very entertaining ghost story. When Jessica Newman travels to Scotland, with her family, to deal with her dead Father's ancestral home, she will need to confront much more than the demons from her childhood to save her entire family. This chilling tale's only flaw is in it's brevity.

Torment is a novella by new author Greg Chapman. If you like Stephen King, you will enjoy this book. It is a good afternoon's read as we see how her father's murder of her mother has affected Jessica Newman. Set in Boston and Scotland, the author handles the change in location skilfully. The final basement scene kept me enthralled and wondering how the author would bring it to conclusion .A couple of errors over the heroine's age and Scotland annoyed me to begin with but I quickly became involved in the story and forgot about them. I give it 4 stars.

This book is brilliant!! The author captured the essence of murder through a child's eyes to the grief, anger, hurt and resentment manifested when carried through as an adult unresolved. The inter-play between the argument of mental illness or demonic posession is superbly done, leaving the reader in a state of subjective ambiguity and suspense throughout the book. The description of mental illness, hidden carefully in conversations and descriptions of actions is very well researched and portrayed in its purest form, not stereotypical form, which really enriches the book and makes you grip onto each word to try to discover if your suspicions are correct.

I love how the central characters are very real and as a woman, I can really identify with the main character as a child and as an adult.

The horror/suspense aspects of the book, were pretty scary to say the least. One particular part is pretty gruesome and I just didn't see it coming - it certainly is a heartstopping sickening OMG moment!!

The ending of the book is really well done and it has room for more to be written and if that happened I would be first in the queue to buy it.
