“Down into the Darkness” is David Carter’s tenth book and something of a departure from his usual English murder mysteries (“The Murder Diaries – Seven Times Over” and “The Sound of Sirens”).

It’s also a lot shorter than most of his books, running to around 140 pages. One early reviewer described it as “intelligent humorous horror” – quite some combination!

This is a novella length book and a quick read, both entertaining and gruesome ... a delightful blend. I think I’ve just come across a new favourite author of mine, and right after finishing this, I’ve downloaded one of his other books, The Life and Loves of Gringo Greene. The narrative is written in omniscient narrator, but reads as 1st person in the earlier part of the book, only zooming further out to encompass other characters later on. And the writer executed this shift excellently. This, f ...more

The story started slow for me, but I am glad I continued to the incredible end. I understand why the author introduced the other tenants of the building complex, but I would have liked to seen more interesting writing. I am not going to give away the creature that makes this a true horror story. It literally made me shudder! The epilogue adds even more credibility to this fascinating yet horrifying story.

Having read several of David Carter’s books, I think it would be impossible to be disappointed by his tales. He guarantees a sound, thoroughly researched, well thought out story written with precision, constantly driving the reader forward, anxious to discover just where the story is going.
This novella is no exception, it contains all of the above which for me is the hallmark of excellence being able to retain a reader regardless of whether the subject matter is less than appealing, which certai

The most terrifying horror stories are the ones that can actually happen. They make you wonder and fear that it will happen to you. Stories with supernatural elements are great, but these are the ones that truly get to you. And that's what happened with me and Down into the Darkness, which I got from a Goodreads giveaway.
This is the story of Tony Jenks and he tells it in a very friendly and informal way. It feels like a friend telling you what he did last weekend, as it feels very real. He tells

Fun to read. A wee bit bizarre; a tad macabre.

I have been writing for longer than I care to remember, both fiction and non fiction, and started out by writing business articles and columns.

The reason I write is because I enjoy it. It is as simple as that. If other people happen to enjoy the results then that is a huge buzz, and a great encouragement to write some more!!

At the moment I am concentrating on my Chester based detective, Inspector
