Beyond Here Lies Nothing is the end of the Concrete Grove trilogy and it could not have had a better ending. I loved the previous two books but this one is, hands down, my favourite. The cover art is the best of the series and from the cover onwards, it only gets better and the threads spun throughout the previous books are brought together and woven into a dark, ensnaring web. It is in Beyond Here Lies Nothing that I would say a true sense of numinous awe comes through as the truth behind The Concrete Grove and its denizens, natural and otherwise, is finally explained. There were certain sections that reminded me of Ramsey Campbell's The Darkest Part of the Woods as the story reaches for the cosmic and the weird as much as the grotesque. Make no mistake, Gary McMahon does not pull his punches when it comes to the more visceral scenes here but these underscore the more disturbing aspects of the story rather than becoming excessive or exploitative. The warped state of one returning character has to be seen, or rather read, to be believed. Also, as ever, the author is not satisfied with neat and tidy endings. Here there is still ambiguity and mystery. Questions lead to more questions rather than answers. Much like in life. Dread piles upon dread, leaving you waiting for the next book in the series - then you realise that this is it, that beyond here lies nothing - and that's the way it should be. The Concrete Grove is a trilogy that leaves you reflecting, feeling and thinking in a way that only the best literature can do. I don't just recommend this book. I recommend all three. Go on, treat yourself.

It is going to be hard for me to review and recommend this third instalment of what has become known as The Concrete Grove “urban horror” trilogy, especially as I generously awarded the previous two books (The Concrete Grove and Silent Voices) 5 stars, but I just did not enjoy this conclusion.

Perhaps I could not take any more of the squalor and urban decay that Gary McMahon describes so vividly “The Concrete Grove was a joyless estate. Apart from the poverty and the criminality that bred here, there was another layer of darkness that could be sensed rather than seen.” Maybe it was the result of reading this book over a bleak and depressing English xmas weekend but if truth be known the simple fact was I found the latter half of the story and the horror described disjointed, confusing, boring and was pleased when my read was complete!

If we remove the horror and look at the human element then the real essence of what the author is trying to express can be seen. The Grove is a place of no hope a place where the inhabitants expect little and receive less. Each day is a challenge of survival in a concrete jungle where the past times of alcohol and physical violence are an everyday occurrence and the hope to find or retain a job is non-existent.

Mark Price is returning to The Grove to research a book and attend a funeral. DI Craig Royle is haunted by his failure to solve the disappearance of “The Gone Away Girls” and the violent death of Simon Ridley, his wife Vanessa has departed due to his depression and alcohol consumption.

Here concludes the Concrete Grove Trilogy.

Someone is leaving macabre scarecrows in the grove estate, each one has attached to it a photograph of the `Gone Away Girls,' seemingly dead. Something is approaching, a door is opening.

Our protagonist is Marc Price a sometime journalist who is currently researching the Northumbrian Poltergeist for his first book. He made a good friend in local man Harry Rose who has been feeding him details of grove history, helping him with his poltergeist research.We also have Abby Hansen whose young daughter is one of four little girls who disappeared mysteriously from the grove estate years before, `The Gone Away Girls' as coined by the media. Abby is a promiscuous and emotional wreck trying to deal with her tragic loss. The child's father is Erik Best who made an appearance in book 2 of the trilogy as the organiser of bare knuckle illegal fights. In book three he is a stalker, a hard man, a raw and present menace, he is desperate to reunite with Abbey. He has his part to play in the coming proceedings, his own supernatural date with destiny. Finally there is the local detective DS Royle who has been obsessed for years with finding out the truth behind the disappearance of those four little girls and has his own broken home life to heal.

To sum up the story in short without spoilers;

As the book starts we learn Harry Rose is dead having succumbed to old age, later Marc learns that Harry has been keeping secrets. The sort of secrets that mean Marc Price is going to have to make a decision to answer a question that will ultimately alter the course of his life, and this question ultimately gives anyone who has followed the trilogy from the beginning a deeper understanding of books #1 and #2.
