Editorial Reviews


"The Shady Corner" by Matthew Williams is hands down one of the creepiest and darkly riveting books I've read in along time!
I was completely drawn in from the opening pages, and thought it seemed really original, even though the whole 'crazy psycho killer guy' angle has been done to death, Williams' buts a cool angle on it where we the readers feel like we never really know what's up with him, not until the end which was an interesting twist.
There is a raw grittiness there that was quite appealing for hard core horror fans.
(4.5 stars) Essie Harmon--Goodreads

I've read a lot of horror in my days, and while you can feel some influences here of some of the masters, Williams's story feels original in its own way with the creation of the evil monster of David.
This is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. The writing is very, very descriptive and we really feel like we are there watching this twisted and disturbing story unfold.
(4.5 stars) Cam Jones--Indie Book Reviewers

I feel like the horror genre has become incredibly cliché, so it's nice to find a book that seems to break some of the rules and think outside the box more.
Overall an intriguing, original, haunting, spine tingling-story and the ending is interesting and definitely makes it a worthwhile read.
(3.5 stars) Jason Thackery--Goodreads
I read horror on occasion to switch it up, but more often than not I'm left feeling kind of 'ho-hum' about them... like the author TRIES to be 'scary' but it's not. Okay... that was NOT the case with this book, "The Shady Corner". YIKES!!!
David is one of those characters that will be impossible to forget anytime soon.
(4 stars) Laura Clarke--Barnes & Noble

I enjoyed the lore that Williams uses, his blend of horror, mystery, and psychological evil and seemingly 'ordinary' people.
Great dark horrifying read that will satisfy fans of the genre.
(4 stars) Darla Ortiz--Goodreads

Everything you could possibly want from a gripping horror novel is found here: solid world building, three dimensional characters (some of whom you love, others whom you hate or are terrified of),high stakes, life and death situations, treachery, evil, and a great supporting cast.
I found that I was hooked in from the very first page and remained there until I reached the end which is saying something!
A frighteningly believable and 'entertaining' tale that even well-read fans of dark horror and suspense are sure to enjoy and be freaked out by.
(4 stars) Eliza Brown--Goodreads

I liked Mr. Williams's edgy and dark writing style very much, and found myself completely lost in this bizarre world and characters, from the ordinary and innocent, to the pure evil.
I was surprised by the amount of emotion and investment Williams managed to pull from the reader in a story as dark as this one, and pack such a punch where we are often left with our jaws hanging open.
Some scenes are VERY hard to take, yet you find yourself unable to quit. Sign of a gifted writer there.
(5 stars) Steph Coleman--Indie Book Reviewers
