Book Description

12 Sep 2013
Chris Deacon: a man who survived the horror of a bomb attack only to learn he has been robbed of the ability to speak. A man plagued by strange phantoms; a man who hears Voices in his head. A man who journeys hundreds of miles to a remote house in the middle of the Northumbrian forest to rid himself of these nightmares but instead finds himself confronting a long forgotten experiment of the Cold War, its vile progeny waiting to take their rightful place ruling the world... The Voices And Chris Deacon is the only man who can stop them. You can't escape what is in your head.

More About the Author

David Robinson is a Yorkshireman living on the outskirts of Manchester, northwest England, with his wife and a crazy Jack Russell Terrier named Joe (because he looks like a Joe).

David writes in several genres under different pseudonyms, but his mainstay is crime and mystery. In January 2012 Crooked Cat Publishing picked up the first of his popular Sanford 3rd Age Club Mysteries, The Filey Connection. Since then a further ten STAC Mysteries have been published by Crooked Cat (and the 12th is due soon) and more titles are planned for 2014 and 2015.

He also produces darker, edgier thrillers, such as The Handshaker, The Deep Secret and Voices; titles which are aimed exclusively at an adult audience and which question our perceptions of reality.

In a more light-hearted mood again, he uses the sledgehammer humour of his alter-ego Flatcap, to reflect on the absurdities of the world at large. Three Flatcap volumes are currently available for download.

As at June 2014, he is working on the 12th STAC Mystery, working title, Murder in the Family, and The Haunting of Melmerby Manor, has just been released. The first of a new series, The Spookies Mysteries, Melmerby Manor combines ghost-hunting with a whodunit. While not particularly frightening, there are scenes which may set the reader's hair on end.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent suspense story for strong nerves! 27 Jun 2012
By Richard
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought Voices by David Shaw to read on the train on my iPad. I use the iPad because I can flip between books as my interest wanes. However since I started reading Voices between Southampton and London I haven't at another book and on one occasion on the return journey I bearly forgot to get off the train I was so gripped!
Without giving any of the story away the plot revolves around a lecturer at a college that for some reason become the target of a terrorist bomb that kills and mains many people, students, lecturers and outsiders. Chris, the lecturer survives but after recovering from a coma he finds that he can't talk. Not only that he sees and can hear very real looking ghosts. The ghosts and the Voices of the title try to force Chris and others to do things, including suicide.
Chris is strong enough to resist to a large extent and traces the source to the North of England where the culmination of the book arrives most satisfyingly.
I'm a fan of James Herbert and David Shaw;s Voices is every bit as good as Herbert in its character depth, the suspense and the descriptive power of horrifyingly real events. This is real horror at its best, not because it's full of blood and gore (there's plenty) but because you really believe it could be happening.
A must read! But remember to get off your train!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Supernatural 14 July 2012
By dkm1981
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not one for the supernatural. I find all things ghostly a tad far-fetched and unbelievable. For this reason I've never read a supernatural type book because I just didn't think I could enjoy one. Oh how wrong I was! I received Voices by David Shaw from the publisher and was a more than a little sceptical about it but thought I'd give it a go anyone (I'm not one to turn down a free book!).

The story begins with a bomb explosion in a school canteen which kills or maims everyone in the vicinity. Chris Deacon, an IT teacher is one of the few survivors, but things totally change for him after he wakes from his coma; he is no longer able to speak or hear and he sees frightening apparitions that seem to want him to do something.

I really enjoyed the book, it was full of twists and turns and I genuinely was gripped from beginning to end. I really wasn't sure if I would enjoy the supernatural aspect of it, but I found that it wasn't too far-fetched in the grand scheme of things and that Shaw actually uses this to make the story make sense.

The characters are very well written and the main protagonist is likeable and believable, despite his tendency to see and hear things that most others can't. I think this is David Shaw's key success in the story because if he hadn't made the main character believable, the whole story would have just been rubbish. As it is, I actually found myself understanding the situation and believing it to be the truth - very bizarre!

The apparitions were brilliantly written too - they were scary enough that I was looking under my bed before I got into it, but not so much that I couldn't sleep. It's more of a psychological thriller than a scary story and this is probably what I enjoyed most about it

Overall a great story that I would absolutely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voices 20 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
'Voices' is a cracking supernatural tale that keeps the reader gripped from the opening pages and refuses to let up as author David Shaw drags you deeper and deeper into a mystery that stretches all the way back to the cold war.

When college lecturer Chris Deacon survives the refectory bomb blast, he awakes from a coma to find he no longer holds the ability to hear or speak. He is also plagued by strange apparitions that may or may not be a side affect of his injuries. At first, they just appear when he least expects it, but soon they begin to talk. They also bring along another phantom, Jenny Morton who, strangely enough, is another survivor of the refectory bombings.

And as the story unfolds and his dreams begin to become reality, Chris is shown that the Voices will stop at nothing to get him to co-operate with them. But it is only when he is drawn to a remote house in the middle of the Northumbrian forest, that he finally learns the true horror of the Voices.

David Shaw has delivered a wonderfully intriguing tale, strong in imagery and filled with believable characters you can really root for. It moves along at a good pace to deliver a powerful ending that will not only leave you feeling incredibly satisfied, it will also leave you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling read 7 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
'Voices' is highly recommended. It begins with a fantastic set-piece: a college canteen in blown-up in a seeming act of terrorism and we see the mayhem and reactions from one particular viewpoint. The novel then follows the after-effects and the intriguing mystery which gradually unfolds. The sightings and titular voices are well-handled without ever becoming corny or cliched. 'Voices' keeps you guessing and has a terrific pay-off. David Robinson isn't afraid to use slipstream techniques or flashbacks to uncover exposition bit by bit - and this works very well. The narrative voice is real and compelling too. Having read a few books by this author, I can say how much I enjoy his neat turn of phrase; his disciplined prose and lively characters. This was a joy to read.
