No one writes like Ed Gorman, and this is one of his best. A masterwork of nail biting suspense and skin crawling creepiness.

Highest possible recommendation.

Another excellent thriller from the master. If you haven't read Gorman what are you waiting for??

CAGE OF NIGHT should be at the top of any horror / suspense readers list. It is a book that defies categorization, which is probably why it has not had the success it should. It has been released in two versions--a paperback edition published by White Wolf more than a few years ago and very recently in a limited edition hardcover from PS Publishing.

It is truly a classic of the macabre--part mystery, part suspense, and entirely chilling and haunting.

Another book I read recently that had an unsuspected ending, yet in looking back I realize there were only a couple of ways it COULD end! Don't think I've read any Ed Gorman. This was good enough to make me try some more of his stuff.

This was indeed thrilling! Ed Gorman takes the reader on a delightful ride of suspense and psychological adventure - and will keep you guessing up until the end.

I really enjoyed this one. I like how part of the narrative is told through an interview between an attorney and her client on death row, but we don't know who the client is. The main story is told through flashback. As it unfolds, the reader has to decide what is real and what isn't. No simple answers are provided. Even at the end, when I had formed my conclusions, I remembered part of the story that made me rethink everything. A very cool read.

Nick Morrow returns home from an army stint to become mesmerized by the beautiful Cindy Brasher and Nick wasnt the inly one obsessed. This is a tale of suspense, obsession and murder. Great writing I couldn't put it down.

The author sent me an autographed copy through the mail at a reasonable price. A new copy at better prices than most of the used book sites.
It's a nice quick read, good story, something you can always count on Mr. Gorman delivering.
