This review is from: Epitaph (Paperback)
I have to say, I must disagree with those reviews that thought little of Epitaph. I enjoyed the book if only for Hutson's candid study in the human psyche. Just what would you do if you woke up to find yourself incarcerated in a coffin with your air supply dwindling by the hour.
That's exactly what happens to Paul Crane who is suspected by Frank and Gina Hackett, of murdering their daughter. Crane is drugged, kidnapped and buried alive. When he awakes in total darkness, it is not long before he realises to his horror that he is in a coffin.
Hutson deals well I think, with one of our most chilling nightmares; that of being buried alive. Crane's terrifying predicament is both claustrophobic and at times hopeless, that is, until he hears a distorted electronic voice coming from within in the coffin.
I must agree the twist at the end is pretty much predictable but it didn't spoil the book for me.
