"The Camera Guy" is intense, creepy and an enjoyable read. This book kept me up one too many nights with its excellent writing and disturbing plot. The story easy to follow, with just the right amount of forensic information to make it intelligent, but not too much to make it boring. The religious undertones, the ultimate battle between good vs evil, God vs devil is something that will always interest me... and creep me out. Bill's character of the fallen hero, looking for redemption without realizing it, is the perfect match against the demon on the prowl for souls.
If you like paranormal, ghost stories, or just a good story, "The Camera Guy" is the book for you; I highly recommend it!
What I didn't expect were the unusual twists and turns that the author, Richard Goodship, raced me through as the story was laid out, got knotted up, and then unraveled itself to expose the darkness that embedded itself in the corners of every page - a demon that destroyed the existence of everyone and everything it touched.
Every scene, every character, every feeling was genuine and entirely viable. I felt myself slipping into the skin of the characters and experiencing each beat of their hesitation and fear.
Bill Walters, "The Camera Guy," is totally real and totally vulnerable. He isn't some hero made out to save the day. He is just an ordinary man, with an extraordinary gift, who sets out to save his own part of the world, and to perhaps set his own demons free.
I fell in step with the reasons why Bill Walters turned his back on his religion, and followed in awe as the author had me questioning the validity of the religious beliefs so many have held true. For me, it blasted open a whole new way of thinking.
The Camera Guy had more than enough suspense and gruesome detail to keep me reading into the early morning hours - and the experience was well worth the lack of sleep!
Bravo to Richard Goodship! I can't wait to get my hands on his other work!
His colleagues at the station are jealous of his perfect solving record, and then the author introduces the new Inspector and relationships go from bad to worse.
This is not a fantasy book but a believable thriller with a touch of the supernatural. The reader can readily relate to the author’s characters, they are down to earth with strengths and weaknesses. The attention to detail shows the authors background in police investigation and is of extra interest to the reader. Looking for more from this writer. Enjoyed the book immensely.
First: This book is self published, and I don't usually read self published novels, unless it was written by an author that has already been published. Nothing against people who self pub their books, it's just not my cup of tea.
Second: It's not romance. I don't typically read outside of my genre, and if I do it's for good reason. Maybe I know the author and we're friends, or maybe it has some romance in it so I am willing to give it a go. Hey, what can I say? I like what I like, and reading takes me far away from my busy life, so if I'm going to escape, I want to do it in a place I like.
I recently became acquainted with this author via twitter, and he helped me out with a couple of things I needed info on. He also happens to be a retired detective which was, or is... yeah, still is, an interest of mine. So, he mentioned his book and I figured I'd give it a go.
This story is: suspense, paranormal, occult horror, mystery, fantasy, etc... There are so many genre's you could place it. In my opinion it's dark urban fantasy.
The story is also written in omniscient point of view. I've never read anything written in omniscient POV before. I found that quite interesting. If you don't know what that is, google it. It's pretty neat stuff.
The story is about a homicide detective - crime scene investigator. He photographs the scene of the crime, evidence, body... etc. He also sees ghosts. Not just any ghosts either, he sees the ghost of the very corpse he is investigating.
Bill the main character, like all good MCs, is a pretty broken guy.Read more ›
