📕My Review

A bit of a silly story but it kept me out of mischief for a few hours. The author's use of bad grammar i.e. 'you was' instead of 'you were' drove me to near insanity but hey-ho, I lasted until the end. I would have liked to have seen some form of punishment metered out for Rye's drink-driving accident but he seemed to have avoided any form of law enforcement despite being hospitalised with a serious head injury. It served to make a daft story even dafter. For a book classed as 'horror', it wasn't in the least bit scary.

📗The Blurb

When Rye Bailey, a seventh son of a seventh son gypsy with a psychic gift, moves to the former country home of his dead business partner, he begins to be haunted by terrifying visions of a bloody murder - visions only he can see, along with mysterious writing that appears on mirrors bearing the message DEAD. As Rye struggles to deal with the possibility that his new home is haunted, he is also faced with old secrets from his past that also begin to haunt him in a very different way - then he is involved in an accident that leaves him with memory loss, and must struggle all over again to piece together the sinister cause of his visions - as well as uncovering a few shocking secrets about his own past in the process.
