Harold Pierce is released from a mental hospital where he has spent all of his adult life. His new job as a hospital porter involves him in the burning of aborted foetuses - an act which brings back nightmare memories of the death by fire of his baby brother Gordon. The trauma is such that the deranged but gentle Harold begins to neglect his duties.
Paul Harvey is a convicted murderer and his escape from prison places the Exham police force under a great deal of pressure. Their vigorous manhunt yields no results but when they begin to investigate a brutal series of murders no one has any doubt that it is Harvey who is decapitating the hapless victims.
Nothing notably outstanding sticks out from the book, but I must say that I did enjoy it. It's one of those novels that you really don't want to put down as your dragged from page to page, until you're at the gorey climax. The important thing with this novel, as with most if not all Hutson novels, is not to expect a masterpiece. Mr. Hutson writes gorey, enjoyable, easy to read, splatter horror with no complex or detailed plots. And he's a master at what he does!
some content even made me feel quite faint in parts, and i had to put it down for 5 mins!!!!
i would recommend this book to anyone who likes scary. supernatural, weird unexpected story lines with a good twist in the tale.
this is one book iwill read again......already read it twice in three years!!
The book starts with Harold Pierce accidentally starting a fire in his home and accidentally killing his mother and baby brother in what is probably the most brutally graphic burning scene ever written.
Years later he is released from a mental home where he is given a job at a local hospital burning aborted foetuses. Harold feels sorry for them and burries them in a field outside the hospital. There is soon a freak lightening storm which brings the foetus' back to life...
What more can you ask? Click the button...
Foetuses coming to life after bring aborted- not scary just stupid really! The twist at the end appears more as if by accident than well thought out.
Poor editing in the kindle version.
I wouldn't bother with it really.........
