Something for the Halloween weekend, Sir?
(A play on the old barber’s cliché, which, perhaps, only certain gentlemen will get.) It’s Halloween next weekend, and last week I mentioned ‘The Judas Inheritance’ as a possible read for the spooky weekend to come. Well, today, I just wanted to shine a light on another novel of mine from a few years ago, ‘Lonely House.’ This one doesn’t have a Symi connection. It’s a creepy, twist-and-turn horror story set somewhere in England. It’s your classic ‘cabin in the woods’ setting. Two young drifters come across a lonely house and break in looking for food. It ends up as a case of ‘eat or be eaten’ you might say, but what I definitely would say is, ‘Don’t open that freezer!’
I received some excellent feedback for this novel when it first came out.
Having served up (oops) the excellent The Judas Inheritance which has been made into a film set on the wonderful Greek island of Symi, he now invites the reader to the Birthday Party from Hell.
Full of mystery and suspense, the storyline will keep you guessing right up till the end.
Very gripping and scary in parts and very well written.
And my favourite, talking about the two main characters: Drover and Pete are Steinbeckish in their relationship. Steinbeck is one of my favourite authors.
Anyway, as we head towards the spooky weekend, how about curling up by the fire with a creepy horror story that has more twists than Chubby Checker singing about the twist? You’ll never want to open your freezer again.
