I've been in the 'mood' for horror lately, and after reading some excellent James Herbert, I noticed this on my shelf and thought I'd carry on the theme. This book seemed like a good bet, as the blurb on the back made it sound as if it was just my cup of tea...the trouble was, the characters and events described in the blurb just never seemed to happen!

To be fair, a lot did happen in the first section...there's kids exploring an abandoned church, a press photographer caught up in a savage gun ba

I am reviewing the novel Renegades by Shaun Hutson which is an excellent horror novel that I bought from a car boot sale. As with all Hutson novels this is quite gruesome but is brilliantly written. I did read before that apparently Shaun read a novel that was poorly written and thought I can do a better novel than that and became an author. Also rather interestingly he refuses to work weekends. The plot is an arms dealer for the IRA in Northern Ireland has travelled to France in search of ...more

Didn't think i'd like this as i thought it was going to be a departure in style for Hutson (as this story is about terrorism). I was very wrong.
Doyle is a great character. A foul mouthed lovable killer. In his line of work, he tells 90% of his colleagues to fuck off. I liked miserable Channing and unattractive Catherine and the creepy French church. The descriptions of the evil glass window create dread that lingers throughout the book. And david & Laura callahan are interesting people. In o

-Producto de los gustos, de algunos, en aquel tiempo.-

Género. Narrativa Fantástica.

Lo que nos cuenta. El hallazgo de una vidriera inquietante relacionada con Gilles de Rais, las esperanzas sobrenaturales de un traficante de armas y su pareja, las actitudes del antiterrorismo británico contra las facciones más salvajes del IRA y otros asuntos, se terminan entremezclando o sí o sí, porque lo decidió el autor.

I've probably read this book about five times, I could finish the last page and turn straight back to page one.

What I love and respect about Hutson is the way he's not bothered about a happy ending. Just as in life people die in horrible ways and the other characters just have to get on with things as best as they can.

Pure old school gritty genre literature. A horror tinted action stories that mixes blood soaked shootouts, cara chases and a constantly moving plot to touches of black humor, sex and gore. In summation a blast and well written too

No me gusto. Tal vez paso que me lo recomendaron tanto que esperaba que fuera un libro que no me dejara dormir o que por lo menos me quitara un sustillo, sin embargo no fue así. Me parece bastante aburrido, y el final es muy muy muy ..... No me gusto nada.

A great book with an original storyline, although some of the imagery and content is a little on the grim side. Even if you don't enjoy the read the story will stay with you for a very long time!

Another from Shaun Hutson, in a similar vein to the last I read. I must assume that this is Hutson's genre and others will be similar, a good read which I really enjoyed.
