This review is from: Epitaph (Hardcover)
The last couple of Shaun Hutson's books have been poor, so much so that I said that I wouldn't buy another. However I fell for it and gave the guy another chance, desperately hoping that he would be back on track. Wrong, this one reaches new lows, it is truly dire.
Don't expect anything to happen until the last few pages. That's right, NOTHING happens until the very end, an ending that was entirely predictable from half-way through.
Yet again we have short chapters, large font size and plenty of page space to pad out what should have been a short story on his website into a novel.
Do yourself a favour, borrow it from a library.

His contract requires a book a year - it doesn't have to be an original & engrossing work of literature!

You'd hope that it was like his earlier work though.

This was the first Hutson book i nearly threw away before finishing. It dragged on and on and as you say nothing happened until three chapters from the end. I am about to read Dying Words which can only be better! Out of the 17 Hutson books i've read this was by far the worst, i hope he gets back to the standard of Compulsion for his next book Twins of Evil.
