I only discovered Simon Clark a year or so ago and I have enjoyed all the books that I read. The Judas Tree will not disappoint. Well written, interesting and recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully haunting, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Judas Tree (Paperback)
Out of the few Simon Clark books I've read so far, this has to be up there as one of my favourites. The characters and setting of Voros are skilfully and vividly drawn, and there is some wonderfully creepy imagery -- the statues in the villa immediately spring to mind. This is a beautifully written ghost story, poetic and beguilingly strange, which subtly builds to a satisfactory and chilling climax. In "Judas Tree" Simon Clark succeeds in blending the contemporary with the traditional, creating a horror story with impressive resonance and depth. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 100-word book review, 20 Mar 2007

This review is from: Judas Tree (Paperback)
This novel is proof that good horror need not feature buckets of gore or spattering body parts. Judas Tree is all about unease and disquiet, the sense we have sometimes in bad dreams that something is very wrong, although we do not know why. I give top marks to Simon Clark for his excellent location (a rocky, inaccessible Greek island speckled with villas and riddled with secrets), edgy, realistic characters and some subtly nightmarish imagery, which still lingers in my imagination. Judas Tree reads very like a ghost story of the old school, and is all the better for that.
