Wow, where do I start! This is not only an intriguing story, but it also follows a line of suspense and horror as well—two of my favorite genre’s when it comes to a good book.
Try to imagine growing up in a special brand of hell. What I mean is put yourself in the shoes of a person who is born with a father who abuses you in the most horrific ways. The torture you endured during that time of your life will never truly go away no matter how far you bury it. Now, imagine after leaving that dreadful horror behind the second you turned eighteen, having your sister call, years later, to tell you your parents have been murdered, and you must come back to the nightmare you left so long ago—would you go?
Well, James Harris does. Though it’s the last place he had ever believed, he’d return to he goes back to be present at his parents funeral. Not for her parents of course but for his estranged sister he’d left behind. However, his homecoming brings with it a wickedness—one not even encumbered by his father. His bad feelings about returning to his hometown of Nash are about to be revealed. Then when his daughter Ruth shows up, his worst nightmares become reality. James is about to lay witness to an evil he couldn’t have anticipated.
Dylan Morgan has outdone himself with this novel. His writing left my heart racing, blood pumping, and fear creeping its way through my veins. I have to say, this is one of the best story’s I have read by this talented author. It is most definitely a must read for any horror, suspense fan.
I know we should never judge a book by its cover but let me say this I LOVE this cover! It just screams pick me up!
I was not expecting this book to go the route that it did, and for that it was awesome.
James Harris left his home town when he was 18 and he vowed never to be back. He had a rough childhood and we don't really learn about that until his daughter Ruth discovers an old diary of his that he has hidden.
It seems that Nash is not quiet place it seems to be! When people start dying James learns that something more dark is going on in the family home than he ever realized. As the story unfolds we slowly get to see what James went through when he was child and it was not pretty!
The relationship that James has with his daughter Ruth is very amazing. James will do anything he can for Ruth and will try to protect her with everything he can.
The book is very descriptive and the story line flowed! I can say the way the ending came about I liked that. I think it was the perfect way to end the book that brought so much heartache to those all around!
If the author writes good stories like this one I will be looking into more of his work!
First of all I have to say what a terrific cover this book has!
James Harris is a divorced, part time dad, living on a run down London estate. He has a warm, close relationship with his wayward, punky daughter, Ruth - which goes a long way to make up for the horror of his childhood and the breakdown of his marriage. But something's happening in the isolated village of Nash, where he grew up, and a phone call from his sister moves him to return....
Dylan Morgan is so adept at writing the underlying sinister atmosphere of the one horse town or small, 'Straw Dogs' type village - he did the American version in his excellent 'Flesh', which I read earlier this year. Travelling through Nash, I felt the silence, the claustrophobia, the despair, from the depressing mood of the sparsely populated pub, to the darkness of his former family home; there almost seems to be a sepia tone over the whole book.
This book is subtly rather than in-your-face creepy, at least at first, and the story unfolds at a steady pace, the supernatural element and details about James's dreadful childhood being released gradually, building up to an explosive end; this is a writer who totally 'gets' suspense. The characters are so well drawn, even the minor ones, particularly Ruth's creepy stepfather. I loved Ruth, she's a great kid, tough and ballsy but with a sometimes most mature outlook, and James is very likable, too.
Definitely recommended for all lovers of supernatural horror.
