Book Description

1 Jan 2009
Child psychologist Nicola Grainger and her husband Howard have chosen to remain childless, but when Nicola's sister and her husband are killed in a car accident in Egypt, Nicola feels duty bound to offer their young twin sons a home. After their arrival, it quickly becomes clear that their upbringing in Egypt, their father's country, has left them spoiled and difficult to handle. They also have the disconcerting ability to finish each other's sentences and constantly answer to each other's names. At times Nicola feels that they're not two children at all, but in fact represent different aspects of one child. As a child psychologist, Nicola knows that the boys need time to adjust to their new life, but she has failed to understand their ability to read the minds of people around them, playing on their most terrifying subconscious fears with horrific results. In addition to these problems, Nicola finds that she is having to cope with the boys' attachment to the handsome Sergei, a friend of their father's in Egypt, who visits them regularly to provide a much needed link between their past life and their new one. Only Sergei truly understands these children, and only Sergei knows the truth about their past and what the future holds for them. As he draws Nicola into his magnetic web she is literally unable to get him out of her mind. To the astonishment of everyone, including herself, she abandons Howard and travels to Egypt with Sergei and her nephews. Once there, she is plunged into a world of dark eroticism and looming evil - the hidden, gaping gateway to hell.

Product Description

From the Author

Gateway to Hell was a very interesting book to write. In most of my horror novels, the setting is in a small town or village in England, and the main characters are the kind of people that everyone who lives in England knows and can relate to. In the case of Gateway to Hell, I had to do a great deal of research into the early Egyptian gods and their stories, and I became fascinated by what I read. I discovered enough material for several novels, and only wish that I'd been able to use more of this at a later date. As part of the story is set in modern Egypt, that too made the book different from its predecessors.

I also did considerable research into how identical twins behave, and the problems that can sometimes arise due to the fact that they are so close that they seem at times to be one person. This closeness makes relationships with adults and other children almost superfluous. What, I wondered, would happen if this closeness were taken a step further? The result can be found in the book, where the games of 'which one of us is which?' that many identical twins like to play at times take on a far more sinister meaning. Or do they? Are the twins normal twins, playing on their aunt's natural insecurities, or is there a dark supernatural force behind their behaviour? If so, is there anything that can be done to save the world from the darkness that may be controlling them?

I hope that people who buy the book enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I'm delighted that it will now be available for the first time in paperback, and to a whole new readership.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding! 24 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
I am a true fan of this author now and this is not the usual genre of books for me but I wanted to read more of Ms. Bingley's books so I took the plunge. I read this is less than a week as I could NOT put it down! Sometimes I was a little afraid to see what came next and yet I had to know! Truly spellbinding - every page keeps your interest. Am off to order another book from this author and can't wait to dive in and see where it takes me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gate Way to Hell 15 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Gate Way to Hell
I loved this book it was one that gripped you from the very beginnig and kept you on the edge of your seat until the end. What i liked also about this book that it lacked all the unnecessary padding that one finds with so many books. I hate it when there is so much padding that by the time you have waded throught it all you have to go back to remind yourself of the story. Well done Margaret for giving us a thoroughly good read from beginning to end. A wonderful story full of intrigue and mistery very much along the lines of the master of occult Dennis Wheatley. I would recommend this book to the public. Good Luck

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 27 Aug 2012
By Christine Delaney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Picked up this book last week and could not put it down. It starts off with a bang and has a jaw-dropping ending.
Nicola gracefully agrees to take care of her sister Rose's twins when Rose dies in a care accident. Being married and not planning on having kids, this is a great sacrifice for herself and her husband. Twins arrive.......what is going on with them?
Next the handsome Russian Sergei arrives and stirs things up. Mix of mystery, little bit or eroticism and a story that keeps getting better and better. This definitely would make a great movie!
