The Review: David Haynes’ latest horror has echoes of The Shining. Snow, a hotel, twins and a man potentially going mad. But the story is a world apart from King’s work and Haynes proves once again that he is a master of the genre.
It’s difficult to think of another author who creates such a queasily nightmarish atmosphere and this book showcases this quality splendidly. It’s richly plotted, the lead a retired copper with a history that makes him flawed, vulnerable, unpredictable and most of all three-dimensional. Compelling through to its unexpected conclusion and final thought-provoking sentences, this is one scary page-turner!
The Verdict: Haynes is the new King.
