5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, sinister and very cleverly written 3 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I received an Advance Review Copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I had already read Maria Savva's Coincidences, a family drama, which I loved and gave 5 stars, so I was keen to read Haunted. I was a bit worried it would be a horror, as I am quite squeamish, but I need not have worried. The subject matter is very dark, and the author manages to make the reader feel sympathy for the protagonist, Nigel, when I wouldn't have thought this was possible, given the nature of his crime. The novel shows how Nigel is persecuted by his memories and how they never leave him for a moment. He becomes obsessed and the events of one evening have a destructive impact his entire life for decades. No matter how he tries to justify to himself what he has done, he can't. He feels certain everyone knows and becomes paranoid. The author kept us guessing right up until the end,and I didn't get it right! Is he losing his mind? Has the trauma from decades ago ruined his mind altogether? What in his life is real. The novel also charts the relationships between Nigel and his family and the destructive influence it has on him and them. The arrival of a young temp who comes to work in his firm in a department he didn't know existed, unbalances Nigel and the fine line between reality and his imagination running wild is very difficult to discern.
Not a novel I would normally have read, but Maria Savva has a gift for crossing genres and addressing difficult topics. She seemed to really get inside Nigel's traumatic psyche. With plenty of twists and turns to keep you engaged all the way to the end, I would highly recommend this for anyone really!
I will be picking up more of her back catalogue soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most unusual! 22 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This wasn't what I was expecting at all from a book called Haunted - the ghosts and spectres are all in the mind of the main character, Nigel.

I thought Ms Savva wrote Nigel's increasing paranoia very well - you can't help feeling sympathy for him and I loved the way he, at times, seemed quite normal - which brought it home how 'normal' your average murderer can seem! I thought the way he couldn't control his temper was portrayed extremely well, too.

Unusual, interesting subject - unusual, interesting book! Nice one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sinister tale 4 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know what I was expecting with this book, but it certainly was a pleasant surprise. It had me gripped from page one.

I felt desperately sorry for Nigel who had a terrible childhood and ultimately, after catastrophic events, creates a dreadful life for himself in adulthood.

It's a very moving story indeed with the terrible events of one night having repercussions for a lot of people.

It is a great book and I couldn't put it down until I found out what was actually going on as it becomes very creepy towards the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinister, dark, and very well written. 19 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book sometime ago and due to my very long TBR list I had only recently picked it up! And it was certainly worth the wait. This is a very dark tale of murder and one that reaches deep into the mind of the protagonist Nigel. Suffering from paranoia and guilt he tries to justify his actions from one terrible night many years before. He hits the self-destruct button and starts the long journey over time battling with his conscience and sanity. This book was so well written and really got inside the mind of Nigel and you actually feel sorry for him at times. This is a dark, sinister read and one you will be drawn into from the very first page. I will certainly be reading more books by this talented author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read 26 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! This isn't the usual type of haunted story, and wasn't what I was expecting at all. Brilliantly written, with a very unexpected angle. This is not my usual genre of reading, but I'm glad to have this book, it is so refreshing! The character of Nigel is fantastic - he could easily be real, in a true to life situation. From Nigel's childhood and teenage years, to his adulthood, the plot never slackens off and always drives forward. I would have liked it without the 'clipart' at the end of the chapters though. Maria has created a wonderful book, and I can firmly say I will be reading more of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, couldn't put this book down! 1 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There aren't many books that have me so gripped that I have to finish it in 2 days but this is one of those books. After reading Coincidences I was wanting to read another book from the same author and this didn't disappoint. If you are looking for a book with a different kind of story-line and something to get you thinking about consequences to a murder, then this is the book to go for. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended. 30 Dec 2012
By Spice
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was gripped by this book more and more, especially with the introduction of Kelly, which added a new dimension to the story. I enjoyed second guessing the plot, but the ending still surprised me. This is a skilfully written psychological drama;the author builds tension and explores the nature of paranoia, incorporating twists and turns in a plot that keeps the reader guessing. I will be reading more by Miss Savva. Highly recommended.
