Product Description

Review

"Graham Masterton is the living inheritor to the realm of Edgar Allan Poe" (San Francisco Chronicle)

"Masterton is a crowd-pleaser, filling his pages with sparky, appealing dialogue and visceral grue" (Time Out)

"Graham Masterton is possibly horror's most consistent provider of chills" (Master of Chills)

"Though Masterton is capable of conjuring a spooky atmosphere and evoking chills from understated terrors, more often than not he goes for the gut, building to splattery climaxes of physical terror" (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description

'One of the few true masters of the horror genre' James Herbert, author of Others.

Format: Paperback
I used to read an awful lot of books when I was much younger, (two to three per week!), but over the last decade I guess that had fallen to no more than one per year if I was lucky, so when I picked up this book in a charity shop I wasn't expecting to read it in much less than a year. Right from the first chapter, though, I was gripped. Gruesome though the descriptions of the flesh strippings are, for me those just added to my enjoyment of the book! It totally captured my imagination to the extent I was putting off doing jobs that needed doing just to see what happened next. I read the book in one month, which as you've read is 12 times faster than my usual consumption! What I would love now is for someone to make a film of the book. I'm sure it would be a smash. It really is right up there with 'A Picture of Dorian Gray'. Do yourself a favour and get a copy today! Thanks Mr. Masterton for a super read...

Format: Paperback
This book has got to rate in the top five of mastertons horror novels. It is loosely based around a strange painting and a villanous family's maniacal strive for eternal youth and the lengths they go to to achieve it. Its gripping, frightening and at one stage so graphically gruesome it almost turned my stomach. A must have for masterton fans and a great starting point for those new to his work. Excellent

graham masterton is an immense talent. all his books are written with such depth and imagination - you just cannot put them down! i can safely say this is one of my favourites, and i have lost count of how many times i have read it; but i never tire of the story (a fabulous and original twist on wilde's dorian gray). as you are reading, you can imagine the characters/events in your mind as though you were watching a movie. this is a skill he manages with all his works. the horror is graphic, and not for the faint hearted; but it is delivered as a valid part of the story with sophistication, and is not in the least bit shlocky. a must for anyone who enjoys thought provoking horror. i've been hooked since reading the manitou in 1975, and have been collecting his novels ever since. he carries out an immense amount of research for his stories, and it shows in the quality of his writing. coupled with the fact that his imagination is simply incredible. any horror fan who has not checked out graham masterton is really missing out. this man, in my opinion, far outclasses stephen king, and deserves far more recognition.

I decided to try this novel from Masterton after reading 'The House That Jack Built' (several times) a few years ago - and I'm so glad I did.
The author gives a great feel to the overall surroundings and characters within the story, allowing the reader to include their own imagination to what is already a great storyline. Where many authors fill pages with useless, repetitive or pointless information, Masterton has the gift of giving just the right amount of information needed which greatly adds to the page-turning speed at which the reader will go through this book.
Any concerns I had that this author may have been a 'one-off' after reading The aforementioned 'House That Jack Built', have been completely wiped clean. A great book, very well written, very hard to put down, and written by probably now one of my favourite authors.
Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
I have read most of the books by Graham Masterton and this is the one that sticks most in my memory. Masterton captures the reader from the first few pages and holds them there until the final climax. When reading this book I was able to visualise what was happening. I won't go into details but if you are a Masterton fan then this is a must.
