Smashwords book reviews by Geoffrey David West

  • Niedermayer & Hart on Nov. 15, 2012

    Chilling, and you can’t put it down. Niedermayer and Hart is a good, lively horror story, that’s a great page-turner with endearing protagonists. What’s most engaging is the build-up of horror, from small hints to out-and-out terror: the feelings of anticipation that are not disappointed. The idea of parallel reincarnated lives works well, as does the sheer horror of the gory parts. The scale of the terrible discoveries at the porcelain dealers’ premises in the seaside English town was shocking and exciting in equal measure, and the way the woman police officer had to balance public credibility with the actuality of what was happening was a difficult and clever balance to achieve, and it worked well. All in all, it’s one of those books that you promise yourself that time only allows you to only read a page or two and you next realise you’re twenty pages on and cannot stop after that. Martin Johnson is an exciting, highly accessible writer, who has that rare skill of making you want to read on. And on. Looking forward to his next book.
