Shelves: horror
This is the very assured debut novel from Gary (who, maybe I ought to point out, I know and have worked with), a ghost/monster story that grips the reader and never really lets go. The first half, certainly, is one of the best things I’ve read this year, the characters are strong and assured and the sense of location and atmosphere is exceptional. There are a couple of downsides, of course, but they’re generally just me (I’ve never been gripped by cosmic-horror before) and Gary’s skill and comma ...more

Three years ago Guy Renford found a knife-wielding burglar in his baby daughter’s bedroom. He forced him down the stairs, then out of the house, and smashed his skull to pieces on the road outside (it’s never quite clear why he feels so guilty about this!).

Guy is a man who has been in jail for three years because of a murder he committed defending his child during a break-in, Rosie is a young woman who has lived through a series of horrific, abusive relationships and both of them are being drawn back to the deluged town of Stonegrave where an all-consuming cosmic horror has been unleashed in the name of revenge. There are phantasms abroad in the rain and no-one is sure what they are but they are beginning to develop a taste for slaughter.
