Shaun Hutson knows how to keep the reader glued to the pages, and this book certainly has that to it's credit, but if you are a big fan of Shaun's this book is not as good as the others I've read. To the books credit, there is less blood and guts in this than any other Shaun Hutson book I've read to date, proving that you don't need constant graphic descriptions on broken bones etc. to keep the reader interested in the story (unless ofcourse that's what you want). On the down side - the ending ??? With Shaun's imagination, I'm sure he could have come up with a better ending than the one here... It's a fairly good read, but don't expect the usual Hutson thriller.
