The Review: Never before have clowns been so disturbing. David Haynes returns to the modern setting to showcase his imaginative horror writing and Boo! does not disappoint. From the arresting first line to the surprisingly satisfying conclusion, this reader could not stop turning the pages.
Gruesome it may be, but as in all good work of this genre, the real horrors come from much deeper inside the human mind and the outcome is all the more powerful because it is not simply black or white.
The odd implausibility and occasional lack of polish aside, this is a gripping, entertaining and scary tale.
The Verdict: Splendid modern horror
