The story centres around a murderous clown, which is quite a common horror theme. Here the author's strength at bringing something new to the story shines. The horror here is in the mind as well as the terrible acts that are committed and there is a twisted logic to the delusion which grounds the whole story.
As well as the killer clown you have the author who wrote the book that inspired the clown's actions and story and how he is dragged ever further into the unfolding events. This is balance by the detective trying to solve and stop the murders. All of the characters are well realised and provide a perfect balance to each other. Its here, that the author shines with excellent writing and providing enough detail for you to fully appreciate what is happening without forcing the reader to wade through unnecessary text.
The pacing is brisk and draws you through with barely a pause and makes it feel like a shorter read than it is. The ending is a little unusual and acts as a counterpoint to the more frantic build up. There is an element of sadness here that underpins the madness and for me really pushed the quality of story.
To sum up - we have another winner from David Haynes, and a superb horror read. I'd recommend this to all fans of the genre.
Night, a washed-up author vainly trying to recreate his earlier fame. A children's entertainer has copied the Sparkles face as his own but someone is bent on a bizarre form of revenge. Detective Jane Brady is determined to find the killer when a colleague of hers is similarly targeted.
This is a new venture for a man known primarily for his horror stories, with an emphasis on Victorian tales of the macabre. His current novel is bang up to date and is influenced by the author's experience working as a police officer. We are able to watch the pieces falling into place for Jane Brady, and witness Ben Night's fear as his own creation apparently takes on a life of its own and goes on a murderous spree. David Haynes has a great future as a writer of psychological thrillers and crime novels if this book is any indication.
Maldon wants to smile again. His smile was taken away when he was a child when he saw his parents get murdered by a clown. The voices in his head say he needs to take other people's smiles away from them.
This is a creepy story (as usual from this author) with a mystery as to how the various characters' lives cross. There are hideous murders, but told with a hint, rather than the gory detail, which for me makes it more hideous. It's often not what's said, just hinted towards that makes this story all the more tense.
My favourite character is Stan the retired greyhound. He wants to be brave for Ben, his owner, but doesn't know how to.
Yet another fantastic story from this author who has switched his horror from Victorian macabre to modern fears.
