Finished this book in a day, just couldn't put it down.I don't want to spoil the story so I won't go into to much detail.An ex-priest and a debunker of the supernatural are asked to help a sick child called sam.Suffice to say they don't expect what happens next and if they had they would have ran and never looked back.There is a twist at the end that will suprise all but ardent wright fans(they will know what I mean)but the rest of it really kept me guessing.You will not regret buying this book, one to watch

On reading Iain Rob Wright's latest novel I was struck by the way in which his writing has evolved. As much as I have enjoyed all his previous novels, there has always been a similar feel through all of them and with this one, I feel that he has tried something new with his writing and attempted to go down a different route. As well as giving us readers something totally different, it shows his versatility as a writer.

The setting for Sam is reminiscent of something out of an early James Herbert book although the narrative is pure Iain Rob Wright. We have, in contrast to the stuffy stately mansion, an odd colourful pairing in Angela and Tim; a gay former priest and a paranormal debunker respectively. These main characters are brought to life as we are given vivid insights into what has brought them to this point.

The tension throughout this book just never lets up. Even when we aren't witnessing the increasingly strange and erratic behaviour of Sam, there seems to be danger lurking around every corner. We are constantly questioning the motives of the other occupants of the house, even Sam's mother seems to have an agenda.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was rapt for two nights. The ending of this novel leaves the reader wondering what happens next and I hope that this was done intentionally...sequel perhaps?

This book by accomplished author Iain Rob Wright is a thrilling ride of twists and turns, full of great characters.
I bought this book having no idea what it was about, but knowing that I'd most likely got another all-nighter from this author.
The story is about that age old subject of possession, and there are plenty of (acknowledged) cliches along the way. However, there is a twist right at the end which I washed expecting!
Iain's style of writing captures you and pulls you right into this story. I felt like I was in the house along with Angela, Tim, Frank and Sam.
The characters are written really well - you can picture them in your mind, and watch their endearing traits along with the horror played out before you.
I'll admit that I'm a massive fan of Iain's work, but this book really stood out for me, the way that Sam is written and the way the story evolved gave me proper goosebumps and really scared me at times!
Such a unique and well written novel among the tons of similar offerings around at the moment. Bloody fantastic writing.

This book was so brilliant I had to read it again within a day of finishing it the first time. It's 'The Omen' meets 'The Exorcist', and as the first book I have read for this author, it was definitely one that has me buying more and continuing to do so.

The premise is of an alcoholic former priest who has lost her faith, and a paranormal investigator/debunker shall we say, who have to join forces to save a poor 'innocent' child from what looks like a case of possession. But Sam and the 'being' inside of him has other ideas. Follow along as the death toll mounts and and even the faithful aren't safe.

'Sam' is just one of those book where the author grabs you from the first word and pulls you into a story so believable and so terrifying at the same time. I couldn't put it down, and all I can do is praise Iain for his brilliant writing and letting me become a part (even for just a short time) a part of this deliciously creepy tale. I won't spoil the story for those who haven't read it (and obviously you might not have done if you're reading these reviews), but sufficed to say I was thrilled to learn of another book where we meet a very familiar character :)

I was very disappointed with this book and became completely fed up with the number of similes which appeared on almost every page. For me it was not a page turner and, in fact, took much longer to read because I was so easily distracted. Horror and suspense it definitely is not!!!

a fun book that gives an interesting spin to the exorcism phenomenon. Although some of the characters idiosyncrasies balance on the ledge of schlock, they pull through to give the reader an exciting roller coaster ride.with enough twists and turns to keep you engaged.
The atmosphere is well developed and the old dark house routine lends a nod to the fantastic with weather changes and mood setting a very solid setting.

The only complaint I have would be with the forced catchphrases that one character utters which comes across a bit unnatural. This is a small complaint which does not spoil the readers enjoyment of this good yarn.

Overall, a very interesting horror novel with extra bonus of some interesting short stories that are well worth a read. Worth every penny spent.
