Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I say ‘typical Slade’ I by no means intend that to be derogatory, I mean it in the sense of ‘classic Slade’ and the only reason I don’t use that phrase is because ‘classic’ would imply Death’s Door is in the same league as Headhunter, which it isn’t, hence the 4 not 5 stars. That said it is still a cracking read; all of the usual characters are here, getting into the usual scrapes.
My wife bought this book for my birthday and it was a perfect can’t-put-it-down holiday read. ‘Typical’ Slade means it’s full of extreme violence, extreme sexual perversion and extreme mental abnormality on the part of the bad guys, anyone who’s read Slade before will know that Jay Clarke understands the workings of the criminally insane mind as well (if not better than) any other writer in the horror genre.
Much of the book revolves around an ancient Egyptian mummy and as usual the author writes in-depth about their history. This gives the reader a good background without being too heavy on the history unlike some other Slade novels which can at times have a reference book feel. One thing that can be said about Slade is he certainly does his research, not always a bind as much of this book also revolves around the porn industry! Whether I’m slower to catch on than most I’m not sure, but I didn’t guess who the villain was going to be until very near the end, so it had that Slade ‘who-dunnit’ feel about it.
Death's Door is a book that can be read on it’s own without reading the previous books, though for character knowledge (and as a Slade fan) I would recommend reading the full set in chronological order, starting with the best, much under-rated and still fairly little known Headhunter.
