When washed-up priest, Angela Murs, and skittish ghost hunter, Tim Golding, are summoned to a vast country manor to help a sick little boy, they have no idea what to expect. It’s clear that young Sammie is a very disturbed child, but there’s surely no way he could have been behind the recent spate of accidents, or the death of his father. The child is dirty, malnourished, and perhaps the victim of a negligent mother, but as Angela and Tim’s investigations take them deeper into the mystery, they realise that there is much more going on than they ever could have expected. When the blood begins to flow, there will be no escape, and little Sammie will finally be forced to show his true nature.
Sam: A Novel Of Horror and Suspense was an interesting read. Characters were well developed and distinctive. The story moved along quite nicely. Frequently I heard faint background music in my head as if I were watching a horror movie. Any moment, I expected to hear Tubular Bells, the ominous music from the movie ‘The Exorcist’. If I say any more I’ll give away the story and you won’t be left cursing at yourself because you didn’t see the ending coming. FYI: Don’t read this book in the dark…. or alone.

Iain Rob Wright was born in 1984 and lives in Redditch, a small town in the West Midlands, UK, with his cocker spaniels, Daisy and Oscar, his fat old cat, Jess, his many tropical fish, and the love of his life, Sally.

Horror is his beloved genre and his next gruesome novel, Animal Kingdom, will be released later this year. His inspirations range from Brian Keene, Stephen King, and Richard Laymon, to J A Konrath and Terry Pratchett.
