The wrier is described on the cover as one 'who may very well be the successor to Stephen King'. I have read only one of
the latter's books but it is immeasurably superior to this pot-boiler. The plot is just about feasible and some of the effects
are reasonably well done but the overall impression is one of an author trying to shock for the sake of shocking. This is
not the genre I usually read and the author has certainly not encouraged me to try any more of his books.
