Book Review: Geddy’s Moon by John Mulhall

Description

Tyler is an amnesiac, drifting aimlessly across the country, struggling to regain his lost memories. When he arrives in Geddy’s Moon, a sleepy town in the middle of the Kansas wheat fields, fragments of his past begin to resurface. But as he establishes new relationships in town, and spends time with the local librarian and her son, he finds himself tormented by nightmares that grow more unsettling each night. What horrific events took place before Tyler arrived in Geddy’s Moon? And could he have brought a terrifying – and possibly supernatural – danger along with him? As the pieces of his fractured memory begin to fall into place, he fears that it may already be too late to keep himself, and those he’s begun to care about, safe from a vicious evil.

Review

The debut novel starts with the unearthing of something that should have stayed buried. A spate of murders, a trio of boys charged with stopping them. The story goes beyond just the overcoming of an evil entity and provides a history which is totally enthralling. I loved the fact our curiosity was satisfied within this book and yet there is still a place for a sequel and lose ends to be tied up. I make no apologies for being cryptic as you need to read the twists and turns without it being ruined by spoilers.

This generally well-written and action packed horror novel is fresh, atmospheric and delivers. The best horror I have read so far this year. Not one to miss!
