Product Description

Review

"Masterton turns in another top-notch performance with this unusual ghost story. This is an excellent horror story, with an added dimension, an extra layer of suspense."
Booklist Starred Review of Community

Couldn't resist, if the blurb says 'small town', looks to have an air of mystery with sinister overtones and a hint of the paranormal then it hits my wish list.

Although a little predictable in places it is a well crafted story that did manage to blast a couple of my theories in places, the book had a nice eeriness about it more so than creepy. Found the sex scenes pretty pointless they just seemed to be thrown in to emphasise a point that had clearly already been made.

Enjoyable quick read.

This was a different type of story than Graham's normal work. But highly readable and Masterton has a way of getting to suspend your disbelief and build a good structured storyline. Not a gory horror as much as a haunting mystery. Well plotted and enjoyable.

This is an excellent and enjoyable thriller with unsettling horror tones and insubtantial notes of unease. Masterton writes in a sparse style like Hutson but despite the lack of detailed description compared to Koontz, the story develops in a way that grips the reader like a vice.
The strange hospital-dominated community in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains is like the theme of many unsettling films but far fewer novels. The denouement is surely original and this book shows that Masterton is back on form after some disappointing tales in recent years and has meant many readers wondering if quantity has taken precedence over quality.
The hero of the tale is recovering from a terrible car crash but Masterton skilfully manages to produce a satisfactory explanation which is unlike anything that could have been guessed - certainly not in the exact form that the mystery is revealed. The main criticism is the blurb on the front jacket that is more incorrect than misleading - three of the few facts it mentions as occurring in the story simply do not happen! Mr Masterton - please hire a new blurb writer as your current one has plainly not read the book with his/her comments about disappearing people, vanishing girlfriends and strangers being ignored by locals. There are enough weird and icy fingers-on-the-hands(and other extremities!) moments to not need to create any imaginary ones.

Written during GM's tedious, 'churn out any old rubbish' phase, Community starts with promise and descends into a tedious slog. This book is another example of one dimensional characters who fail to elicit any empathy from the readers. And once again GM doesn't know how to end an novel so instead just chucks the first idea he has onto paper.

What happened to the GM novels that thrilled, scared and engrossed - Mirror, Black Angel, Revenge of the Manitou, to name but a few? Instead this rubbish is very, very poor.

Having been a GM fan most of my life, I have to say I was disappointed with this. Tedious build-up, predictable climax, ridiculous premise, shallow characters. To top it off, GM wheels out the slightly obscure phrase 'flush-centered' on almost every page. I hate that kind of repetition. Sadly, there's not much 'flush-centered' about this dismal effort.

Well, what can i say? Being a fan of Graham since day one, i was excited when this dropped on my mat. Although very different for Masterton, it is an excellent tale with loveable characters that will keep you gripped throughout. I don't want to give the story away as you can read the synopsis yourself and i don't want to ruin it. Just take my word for it - it's worth every penny.

Not up to usual standard, however, it passed a rainy afternoon. Certainly not a page turner it just didn't hold the usual excitement of his previous books, maybe he is just running out of steam. Some of the best books I've ever read came from G M but not this one I'm afraid.
