The Review: David Haynes leaves behind Victorian horror for a modern setting. Jim Stokes leaves behind a broken marriage and a bloody trauma and restarts his life in a secluded house.
The book starts slowly with just the right amount of intrigue before Haynes ramps up the action. The sheer genius of this tale is that gruesome horror, PTSD-influenced hallucinations and the supernatural collide so you never know quite what’s real. It’s all deeply unsettling, sometimes horrifying and leaves you with an aching sadness for the lives lost.
Make no mistake, this author can give Stephen King a run for his money.
The Verdict: Read then hide Beneath the Covers.
