5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to all expectations!, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TORTURED: A Novel of Psychological Horror (Kindle Edition)
Since discovering Matt Shaw i have been eagerly awaiting his latest offering and was not disappointed.

A family move to restart their lives after some marital problems. From the beginning we learn of the conflict between the players, through his first person story telling style, you feel like you are the character at that moment, especially disturbing when a serial killer to top all serial killers steps into the frame. I always try to see the other side of serial killers in books, to try and empathise (sounds weird but i do), but this killer beat me, he is pure nasty!

I cant say a lot as dont want to give any of the plot away, but suffice to say if you are a fan of Matt then keep your eyes peeled for some interesting nods to other works, if this is your first Matt Shaw book, read the authors notes afterwards and get buying the books he lists!
If you are expecting wall to wall gore, dont panic, this is gory and descriptive, but done effortlessly, making you wince but not overpowering the plot and other characters (some of which are creepy in their own right).

Excellent book, hopefully not this killers only outing please :).
