You're killing me! Do you recommend this?

Since you are a horror expert, Char, I have to be honest. I don´t know exactly. The build up is incredibly slow and about halfway through I knew where the story was heading, but the end was deeply disturbing nonetheless. It seems like Taylor chooses the most horrific ending for his stories that he possibly can imagine (this time without any gore whatsoever).
I liked Sweetheart, Sweetheart better, I can tell you that, though :)

Hmmmm. I'm so torn on this one! I do like the slow burn, as long as it's atmospheric, so I think I will give it a shot-but not for Halloween Bingo. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.

It is definitely atmospheric and I loved the Dartmoor setting. If you are going to read it, I certainly hope that you will enjoy it :)

Thanks! I've enjoyed everything else I've read from him so chances are good I'll like this too. :)

Hmmmmm... No gore, eh?

The only slightly gory scene is in the beginning, when the MC thinks back on a suicide he has been a witness to. There is a description of the mutilated body, but you could easily skip that small passage. Other than that, no gore.

And, yet, the ending disturbed you? You're a much tougher reader than me.

Well, gore doesn´t get to me, subtle horror or psychological horror on the other hand have to ability to freak me out, depending on the subject matter. So as it seems, I´m not so tough ;).
