This not the best book I've ever read, but neither is it the worst. It's the first Shaun Hutson book I have read and I was gripped from the start, however I did have several problems with the book. There were several inconsistencies in the plot, such as sudden opinion changes by characters and plot lines which were set up and then just dropped with no completion (e.g. Talbot's mother). I also felt that the representations of child protect and of the occult were inaccurate and in the case of the occult stereotyped and in no way researched accurately. The ending was very disappointing, as the book just stopped; I actually thought there must be a sequel (that's how I ended up here I was looking for the next book in the story!) Maybe Hutson's intention is to write a sequel to the book, or maybe he had just had enough of writing this story; which ever the case it was a very disappointing ending. Overall I wouldn't recommend this book, unless you have ran out of things to read and are looking for something that's in my opinion quite superficial.
