Review

An expert in the art of keeping the reader turning the pages...the energy is overwhelming. (TIME OUT)

Powerful and graphic...unlike any others on the shelves. (STARBURST) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heathen - A Review 17 July 2009
By sb
Format:Paperback
The book starts quite slowly ,with piecemeal plot development and is about a writer who dies in suspicious circumstances and features his widowed wife as the main character. The widow, Donna, finds her husband's office being ransacked on the day of his funeral. What transpires is that he was writing a book about a secret organisation - The Hellfire Club, and that he had stolen a book from them which they are desperate to have returned.

Donna finds out more about the organisation, the missing book and her husbands intentions before his untimely death. What results is a cat and mouse game where she must stay one step ahead of the pursuers in the hunt for the book and includes showdowns in a wax musuem, her country home and a private club in London. Who finds it first? - that would be telling!

The storyline is gripping in the sense that she has to remain one step ahead of the pursuers (who seem to have infiltrated various agencies that confound her time on the run). For the ultimate 'grip' factor though, it's not quite as intense as an average Dean Koontz book, or other author of that genre for example. Also, I thought the ending could have been better - I didnt see it coming, but it could have been better all the same.

Four out of five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars My First Shaun Hutson 19 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
This was the first Shawn Hutson novel I have read, it was lent to me as a holiday read and I finished it within 3 days.

The book follows Donna Ward, a widow after her husband Chris dies in a car accident. As the book continues Donna realises she didn't know her husband as well as she thought she did and there are lots of questions that she wants to find the answers to. It is a compelling book and leaves you constantly want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.

I really enjoyed this book although in places it was very gory. I am told that this is one of Hutson's more milder books so whether I would like to read a gorier one, I am at the moment undecided. The plot was predictable in places and I had guessed what was going to happen quite early on in the novel. Nevertheless it was a very interesting and compelling read and I would recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real thriller.... 3 Feb 2008
By J. Balamurugan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm a big fan of Shaun Hutson and this is one of his best books. Kept me going till the last page in two days. Books sure can be more effective than watching a horror movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heathen by Shaun Hutson 25 Sep 2000
By "shakermaker" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Heathen is a perfect example of what a Shaun Hutson book is about, although the storyline leaves much to be desired, as usual, he is a master of description, and can describe a "feel" or an "atmosphere" better than any author I have read and can convert his words into such a clear mental picture that you feel compelled to keep reading page after page. You will see what I mean as the heroine, Donna, attempts to solve the mystery of the husbands demise. Hutson's books are uncompromising and will go to all lengths to surprise you.
This book is well worth reading and I am certain that all readers of the horror genre will enjoy it.
