Master of Lies (Tor Horror)
Master of Lies (Tor Horror)
by Graham Masterton
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Be warned, 27 Feb 2013
When this book came out i jumped at the chance for my wife to get it for me as a present. i am a great fan of Masterton but am once again dissapointed. The Book is a great read but where i am disapointed is the fact that once again another book has been published under a different name. This story was first published as Black Angel so many years ago. For some reason we as the reader seems to be get old books in new covers at the moment, which is now becoming anoying, and these authors or publishers need to be very careful because us as the buyers of books will eventually not want to buy their novels just incase it is something we have read before under a different publisher and a different name.
Hope this review helps...

4.0 out of 5 stars re-incarnate, 27 Feb 2013
Great book. builds up and up, just like you would expect from a Masterton book. Its violent and very sick for some readers to stomach, but a real good read. Now for the downer. White Bones unfortunately is not a new novel from the master of horror Graham Masterton. The novel in question was called A Terrible Beauty so anyone who has already got this novel like myself should bewarned, but if you haven't already got A.T.B then this is a must book for your collection, although i am not impressed with the picture on the cover, but that is my own view on how covers of novels should look like. If i did not know of Masterton and his writing, this cover would not encourage me to part with my money. What happened to real artists who would read the story then design the covers accordingly, as to how they visioned it.
I do hope this review helps you to decide......

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My last blender decided to give up the ghost when i was doing the bread crumbs for christmas day stuffing for the turkey. After christmas i started looking around for something to replace other one and i came across the Duronic chopper. The price it was being sold at put me off at first, because i thought it may be cheep and nasty like the last one was. But i decided to go for it anyway and have used it a few times so far and have been quite impressed with it. Only time will tell whether it would be able to match up to the excellent reviews it had from others. i have blended digestives biscuits to make a base for a cheese cake, and it was fantastic but like i said only time will tell...

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a massive fan of Masterton, i picked this novel up to read and after a slow start, i finally found it hard to put down.
If there was one gripe it would be that i am not very keen on the picture cover or the title of this book. To me it sounds and looks like a love story, but thankfully it is anything but. This just me nick-picking though.
As you turn each page it will become apparent that it is slowly building into a climax, where you end up into the hidden realms of masterton's mind where the walls are drentched in blood and gore.
For me it was an excellent read.
There is one warning to everyone looking to buy this novel or even the ones who allready own it. There is a new novel coming out March 2013 called WHITE BONES. This is A TERRIBLE BEAUTY incarnate. Why they do this can be very anoying because, by changing the titles and putting a new sleeve on the book u can sometimes buy something you actually dont need.
