Possibly my favourite debut horror novel.
What makes a good Horror Novel? Darkness? Suspense? Melancholy writing? An original tale?
No one really knows we just know what we enjoy and what we do not. I loved this novel, surprised often by the fact it is a debut novel (it wore the gloss of a seasoned writer) it bears the pace of a thriller, the basis is clever and reasonably original, it has bite and several twists in the tale. Some will notice that many things are not mentioned which would be important under the circumstances that our characters found themselves, but these things would simply slow the pace of the story. I would rather figure them out for myself. I will be looking forward to the next novel by A.M. Shine in anticipation.
