Smashwords book reviews by Greg Chapman
- Let Darkness Take Hold
on July 14, 2011
Cameron Trost's Let the Darkness Take Hold is a well-told revenge tale about a desperate man looking for closure - the truth of a past tragedy.
Michael, a landscape gardner gets the opportunity of a lifetime when the new owner of old Sinclair house asks him to redevelop the garden. Michael has always suspected the Sinclair house harboured a secret about his son's death and he jumps at the chance to dig around.
Without giving too much away the tale follows the typical forumla of the revenge tale, but Trost adopts a number of horror tropes to deliver a pleasing climax when Michael gets to exact his revenge in style at a costume party.
Hopefully we'll see some more writing from Trost soon.
