Review by: David Kilner on June 18, 2014 :
Dread is a pacey mystery about a group of fairly basic characters who are more interconnected than any of them realise in the beginning. The characters are all self-obsessed with little understanding of other people’s needs and feelings, and that sets up a series of interesting interactions. Cormack offers much insight into how dysfunctional childhood histories interact with adult desires to create dangerous realities. The plotting is well developed, with just the right amount of back-story at the appropriate places in the book to drive the story forward. Cormack creates some good tension towards the end, with the reader wondering if the heroine will be rescued in time before the killer can get to her. The small town setting is well drawn. I found the ending satisfying and convincing, with despair supplanted by hope, for some of the characters anyway. Overall, an enjoyable read.

A truly insidious story with creepy characters that seem to feed off your own fears and paranoia.

This novel is one of the best i have had the honour to read.
It is fiction but hard to believe it is?
My husband had to fend for himself because i just couldn't
put it down.
Bring on a new one at the same caliber, i know you will.
and i will be a life long fan.
A must read.
