Yes, I was drawn in by a lurid cover How can you resist that cover It looks like a horror story It actually is in a way, it s entirely too horrific, gore guts and visceral for a traditional mystery thriller Oddly enough the first few chapters absolutely didn t do it for me, it took a while to pick up, but once it did, it cannonballed And I actually ended up liking it quite a lot, it wasn t literature, not was it particularly unpredictable and yes, certain aspects required suspended disbelief par [...]

This story is some fucked up shit loved it when I read it years years ago I think I m overdue for a 2nd reading
I read this book twice when I was a kid I think it has a good story and some very interesting and memorable characters The book is very adult oriented It has a lot of graphic violence and sexual things The character Grow ler Growl er lol is pretty intense When I read this book, it pretty much felt like I was watching a movie.It s a mystery type story, but I felt like I was less concerned with how it was going to turn out, than what other crazy gratuitous shit is going to happen It s very dark, w [...]
Reasonably engaging suspense thriller Annie Milton and her husband buy an old building to renovate near where she grew up Annie travels there as a surprise to see her husband who has been there for several weeks and instead of the pious man EHR married finds someone in the process of going insane as well as Satan in the flesh come to torture her In this house previously a young woman seven years before had been decapitated and her cousin was jailed for the murder Annie enlists the help of an old [...]
I gave up on this one either I misread some stuff in Lie to Me or the editing is really bad in this one There seems to be some continuity problems with the main character s back story I couldn t get past it, in spite of the interesting story.
The backstory of Annie and Teddy took up too much of this story and didn t flow smoothly We then lost 14 years of both of their lives and vaulted to the present Interesting tale, however, but graphically violent so not for the faint of heart.
Violenta bit unbelievablebut couldn t put it down.
Well, I read it without wanting to throw it across a room, so that s good Don t read too much into the disjointed back story, just take the ride.
Very suspenseful Defiantly keeps you on the edge of your seat while reading.
