Product Description

Product Description

Detective Aaron Sanders' abilities and fortitude are put to the test when he investigates a brutal double-homicide where a boy's parents are found mutilated inside their home. The boy is the only witness to the crime and his clothes are stained with his parents' blood. His clothes are also tainted with the blood of other victims from a separate and even more horrific crime scene at a nearby cemetery. All of the victims appear to have been killed in the same manner and the boy knows the true identity of the evil responsible for the multiple deaths, but he is unwilling to talk. No one would believe him. A threat on the boy's life and a disturbing nightmare causes Detective Sanders to question his beliefs and his own sanity. This investigation ultimately leads Sanders in a fight to save himself and the life of an orphaned boy from an unimaginable evil that is spawned from the curse of the devil's nightmare.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 1 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Reads like it was written by a 12 year old. Way too much information. This is not a direct quote but an example. The detective is leaving the scene and decides to make a phone call this is the kind of way he writes.
X had mentioned Y so I decided to call Y's brother who lived with Z in a one bed apartment in W town. The town used to be part of blah, blah, blah.
I reached into the pocket of my (insert brand name here) jacket and released my phone, an Iphone 5s. remembering to switch it on I dialled the number for y. There was no answer and the call went to voicemail. I remembered to leave a message and then switched of the phone using the button on the side.
I returned the Iphone 5s to my (insert brand name) jacket pocket, reminding myself how good the (brand name) jacket looks with my (brand name) trousers, Everything reads like an instruction manual - there are few books that are ever so bad that I would give up on but I have to say 'no more' to this one. One of THE worst pieces of writing my eyeballs have ever seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great multi-genre adventure. 13 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have to admit that I wasn't expecting a lot from this book, what with it being the author's first horror novel, I assumed that it would be full of clichés but I'm really glad I went ahead as it is much more than that.

There are clichés of course as it is almost impossible to write anything in a particular genre without resorting to at least some clichés, but oddly most of the obvious ones are not from the horror aspect, but the initial chapters that come across very much like a standard cop-chasing-serial-killer and in particular with the descriptions of the hero as a loner, maverick, wisecracking cop, but this is soon forgotten as he goes through the many twists and turns of the plot, that make him both nice and horrible, depending who he's talking to. Or in other words, just like a real person.

Other characters are mostly nicely rounded out, for the most part although there are a couple of exception and one that goes through something of a personality transplant at different times in the book, that could have done with a bit of cleaning up.

That and a few other minor errors mentioned by other reviewers aside, the plot is really rather good even if it does appear to borrow from several source such as 11970's horror movies, and a certain "I see dead people" film but that doesn't matter as this mix all pretty much works, and works really well.

In fact - and this isn't something I would say about a lot of books - I would even dare to suggest that there could be a sequel to be had, with the same characters (well those that made it to the end of the book, obviously).

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable romp 1 Oct 2013
By K Kent
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
FOUND this book quite an easy read. It travels along at a good pace and keeps the reader hooked. I FOUND the ending a bit disappointing, it seemed very hurried and unsatisfactory. But if you want a quick read, this book is ideal and entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars GRIPPING THRILLER HORROR. 3 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
THIS IS A MY FIRST READ BY THIS AUTHOR AND I LOVED IT. THE STYLE OF HIS WTITING WAS GREAT AND I LOVED THE WAY HE COMBINED THE THRILLER WITH HORROR SO WELL. THE ENDING WAS A BIT NEAT BUT THAT DIDN'T TAKE AWAY MY ENJOYMENT OF THE BOOK. IF YOU LIKE YOUR THRILLERS GRITTY WITH A BIT OF HORROR THROWN INTO THE MIX DOWNLOAD YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. A WELL DESERVED 5 STAR.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Potpourri of Twists and Thrills 18 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not a great reader of horror, but I thought I'd give this one a try and I'm glad I did.

Pruneda starts the story with a heart-stopping bang, before pulling us back to earth for a patient build-up of the back story. A cop on the edge, child abuse and Satanic rituals all combine for a potpourri of twists and thrills. The writing is both visual and visceral with enough violence to satisfy the most ardent fan of gore-fest.

Read it with the lights on.

Good original story-line and very well written. I definitely would recommend this, although there are too many coincidences and cliches in the conclusion of the plot.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not at all good.
Dreadfully childlike and amateurish style of writing which does not help with the visualisation of the albeit basic plot. The book scans like a really cheesy American cop show. Read more
