I've always been interested in stories of Black Shuck, Old Shock, Padfoot, Barghest, whatever, the phantom demon dog of lonely places. So when I saw this story I had to have a read; I'm pleased I did. It's a very good story, mostly well-written, with solid well-built characters. The story seems to be taking a while to get to the point, but this is largely character building; when the finale does come however, it's completely original and unexpected and quite brilliant. OLD SHOCK is a 4 and a half star story, but I can't give it that, so I'm making it five.
I also had a look at the authors blogspot page, which is really good, giving East Anglia a mysterious atmosphere and showcasing some really beautiful photographs.
