Editorial Reviews


"Riveting. Matthew V. Brockmeyer's debut is country noir at its finest. Stephen King fans may have finally found a new favorite author in this haunting novel."
--Best Thrillers
"This is the kind of book that will make you start looking for excuses to cancel all your plans so you can stay home and keep reading. Atmospheric, suspenseful, well-written. But be forewarned: You may not feel entirely whole when you come out the other side."
--The North Coast Journal
"Thoroughly suspenseful and haunting. Brockmeyer's unsettling tale has an effectively slow buildup to an intense boiling point. There's a perpetual edginess . . . grim, unsparing."
--Kirkus Reviews
"You don't often come across a debut novel that is so unique in the horror field, one that speaks of scarred humanity so elegantly. For that reason alone, Kind Nepenthe deserves five stars."
--Marvin Vernon, The Novel Pursuit
"This story has twists and turns that will be a true pulling factor for thriller readers everywhere. With a building suspense, this novel gets darker and darker as the pages turn. 4 out of 4 stars."
--Online Book Club
"An edgy, unsettling tale. The growing sense of dread is palpable, and the paranoia it generates will linger even after you've finished the book. A haunting novel that makes me look forward to Brockmeyer's future work with anticipation."
--Ray Garton, Grand Master of Horror, author of Live Girls and The Folks
"Matthew V. Brockmeyer's debut novel looks at life through an alternative lifestyle lens and has accomplished an ultramodern horror thriller that has something for everyone. Fantastic read and one that is highly recommended. This is a definite five out of five read."
--Media Bitch
--Horror News
"Had me turning the lights on because reading in the dark was too darned much for me. 5 out 5 stars."
--The Nonstop Reader
"A fantastically well-constructed story."
--Stuart Conover, Hell Notes
"Addiction and unreliable narrators run through this novel like poison, seeping into your skin, altering your perception, leaving you damaged and unsettled by the ghosts of past transgression. A powerful, haunting, visceral story."
--Richard Thomas, award-winning author of Breaker
"Brockmeyer's tale of greed and lust is punctuated with enchantment. Gripping, smart and masterfully tense, Kind Nepenthe is a horror story for language junkies."
--Suzy Vitello, award-winning author of The Moment Before and The Empress Chronicles
"A beautifully crafted tale of haunting horror. Five Stars."

About the Author
