Book Description

"Everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes," said Andy Warhol. And fame is something certain people will go to any lengths to achieve: whether to be revered or reviled, the lure of notoriety is strong for those lacking it.When five-year-old Becky goes missing in a crowded shopping centre, her mother's worst nightmare has come true. But Hailey Gibson's nightmares are just beginning. After Becky is safely returned by Adam Walker, Hailey finds her initial gratitude turning to something else. With her marriage close to ruins, she is tempted to begin an affair with this likeable newcomer. Besides, Hailey wants revenge against her husband and his mistress. And Walker seems willing -- only too happy to please. But maybe he has his own agenda? As she wisely ends their budding relationship, Hailey begins to wonder if Walker could be behind the acts of vandalism committed against her home and family. Or is someone else seeking revenge, who she has not yet encountered? When petty harassment turns to open violence, Hailey finds herself caught in a spiralling vortex of suffering and death . until the shattering truth forces her to make the the most horrendous decision of her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hutson at his very best (again !) 4 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
After getting the book a few days early via Amazon.co.uk, I have to say I was not disappointed with it.
It seems like years rather than months have elapsed since Hutson's last book, Purity. This one was worth the wait !! The trouble with his books is that you have to read them so quickly, after all, if you put it down you begin to get withdrawal symptoms !
Right from the start the author starts to build characters and events that can only lead to the usual Hutson-esque ending. That said, past titles and this latest release are never dull, and although they follow a winning formula that has become Shaun Hutson's trademark, they provide a thoroughly good read for the thriller/semi-horror novel fan.
From the point where Adam Walker returns Hailey Gibson's daughter safely, you start to get a feeling of uncertainty about the dark side to his character, and you know it's only a matter of time before he shows his true colours.
The ending - explosive and totally unexpected.
Verdict - an excellent title from the master at work. Well done Shaun - can't wait to get the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent delivery 24 Aug. 2005
Format:Paperback
I have read a number of Mr Hutsons' novels, generally those of the horror genre and found this more geared towards the thriller side of the scale. Initially felt tame next to some of his more graphic offerings but then suddenly all hell breaks loose. An unstoppable read, athough predictable in places immensely enjoyable and full of the magic of his other novels where you just can't stop until finished. Missing the 5/5 as i felt everything happened two thirds of the way through and although a big fan of graphic descriptions and blood and gore found the less graphic than normal, harrowing ending quite disturbing. Highly recommended title, remaining a big fan, not a bad title to date. Verdict: Put on your reading list if you have not already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaun, you've done it again! 26 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I must be slipping I didn't realise Shaun had another book out so soon, but thanks to Amazon I didn't have to wait too long to get my hands on it. Thank you Amazon. Warhols Prophecy as you can probably tell by the title is about people wanting their 15 minutes of fame and boy does this book give it to them. What starts out as a chance meeting for Hailey Gibson when Adam Walker rescues her child soon turns into the meeting from hell. If you like your books to contain suspense, sex, violence and a sting in the tail, this ones for you. Buy it now! The only down side with this book is that like all Shaun Hutson's other books you can't put it down and end up reading it in 2 nights!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast-moving 2 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I got through this fast-moving page-turner inside one day.
It lacked the dry humour which I enjoy as well as some probing social insights.
However, it is a book which keeps you glued "to the seat".
The plot is reasonably sound, albeit that the story is predictable in parts and highly improbable.
It is not until reasonably late that the identity of the "bad guy/girl" is revealed so it is with ease that you hang in there. I may have ended the book slightly differently, but then again I'm not an author, nor one who has had a heap of success (any?)with writing to date!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping 7 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Since Hutsons departure from horror to pure thriller his writing has gone from strength to strength. Worhol's Prophecy tells the story of one mans desire to have his name live on forever whatever the cost. Although not packed with all the usual gore and thrills we have come to associate with Hutson, this is a definate page turner building up to truly awesome finale. Readers of true crime will see the patterns emerging and although at times it is a little cliched it kept me reading way past my bedtime for a good few nights. A chilling view into how thin the line has become between fame and infamy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaun does it again !!!!! 17 Oct. 2010
Format:Paperback
Started reading this after it had sat on my bookshelf for months. So disappointed with myself that i haven't read it before. From the first few pages i was gripped, totally addicted. Book travelled everywhere with me. Was a little disappointed at the ending, considering the build up of the whole book. So worth reading though, especially if your new to shaun hutson.

5.0 out of 5 stars A major teaser to the explosive end 29 Aug. 2004
Format:Hardcover
Hutson takes you into an apparently bland set of middle England lives and drips in a series of darkening elements that deepen the sinister feel of his world. The explosive climax caps the story well and the dedication to Bill Hicks at the beginning gives even further insight into the bitterness the author seems to hold for the world! Great read...
