Product Description

Review

I challenge anyone to put down his latest book once they have read the opening chapter (SUNDAY INDEPENDENT)

Taut writing, crisp plot and scoring very respectably in the spine chilling department prove that he has not lost his macabre touch. (NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE)

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

Format: Paperback
Hutson writes in a clear, simple style that is easy to read and he has peopled his book with a full cast of characters. Unfortunately this book has no other good points.
The naturalistic elements in the book were clumsily handled. I know of no school that would deal with child protection in quite the way described and the Inspector's sudden conversion to belief in the occult was inexplicable. The occult elements themselves were not married well with the rest of the book and I found it quite impossible to suspend disbelief.
However, the most disappointing part of the book was its ending which was very sudden. I didn't realise when I reached the end that this was the end of the story and I kept turning pages looking for the rest of it. I had no sense of completion of the main plot and there were a number of questions left unanswered about the subplots. It was as if Hutson had run out of time or inspiration and simply stopped.
There are so many good books to read that I really can't recommend this one. If you must read it, my advice it to try to get it from a charity shop and then take it back afterwards so they can sell it again. Then at least it will be doing somebody some good.

I am a Shaun Hutson fan and have read many of his books. Stolen Angels had me turning the pages as quick as I could and I loved every minute of it. But as I got to the last 25 pages I kept thinking where is the ending ?? The end happened in couple of pages which was a little disappointing; as the rest of the book was to the well proclaimed Shaun Hutson style. Sorry Shaun .

I do not understand how Shaun Hutson makes a living as an author.

I imagine that the types of people that read Shaun Hutson books are teenagers that have only just learned to read properly and know no better, or Prisoners, who again have only just learned to read and only understand basic child like writing and what I would describe as "Chav Horror"
Even the artwork on his book covers is cheap and talentless.
This book in particular never made it past a rewrite. Shaun must have just knocked the idea together and sent it off for print. Whoever signs these books off after editing them instead of chucking them in the bin Is worse than the author himself.
If you want real writing, choose someone else. anyone else.
Adam Nevill, Scott Sigler,just off the top of my head. these authors have talent and imagination. they will also lead you to other authors batter than Hutson.
This guy never moved on from the 80's tortore gore porn of James Herbert. He imitates James Herbert in the worst way.
He is a James Herbert for Chavs.
Avoid.

Format: Paperback
What can have driven three professional, ordinary men - a surveyor, and accountant, and an architect - to the desperate act of suicide? Such is the question facing Chief Inspector James Talbot and journalist Catherine Reed, seeking to find a link to the deaths and a series of desecrations in a local cemetary. Every grave belonged to a child. As Reed investigates these outrages, her brother discovers that a number of children at the school where he teaches appear to be exhibiting signs of abuse. It would appear that what everyone feared is becoming a reality - a full scale child abuse ring seems to be in operation. But the spectre of child abuse is merely the tip of a terrifying iceberg. As the race to discover the truth becomes increasingly urgent, Reed and Talbot find that something much darker could be responsible, which threatens not just life, but sanity itself.

As ever, Shaun keeps the pages turning in time-honoured fashion, but the ending seems to fall short of being satisfying as if something else, and I know not what, should have been the ending instead of this one. Odd? You're left kind of hovering as if you're not too sure...so maybe neither was he?

Shaun Hutson knows how to keep the reader glued to the pages, and this book certainly has that to it's credit, but if you are a big fan of Shaun's this book is not as good as the others I've read.
To the books credit, there is less blood and guts in this than any other Shaun Hutson book I've read to date, proving that you don't need constant graphic descriptions on broken bones etc. to keep the reader interested in the story (unless ofcourse that's what you want).
On the down side - the ending ??? With Shaun's imagination, I'm sure he could have come up with a better ending than the one here...
It's a fairly good read, but don't expect the usual Hutson thriller.
