Do you enjoy reading suspense or horror? If so than you will surely enjoy this very scary book. Not that the horror is particularly graphic or explicit. But your whole reading experience is certain to be stressful.
Professor David Ullman is a world authority on demonic literature. In fact his particular passion is for Milton’s Paradise Lost. Not that he actually believes in demons, but he considers that they are a literary representation of evil during specific historical periods. When he is offered a luxury trip to Venice to consult on an unexplained phenomenon, he not only accepts but agrees to take his 11 year old daughter on a holiday.
When he eventually arrives at the address he has been given, what he sees shakes him to the core. His immediate reaction is to leave with Tess, quickly. But before he can escape, she falls into the Grand Canal crying out ‘Find me!’ The search for his daughter leads David into a world of nightmares.
This is a book you will need to be ‘in the mood’ for. It is not one that you will easily put aside once it grabs hold of your imagination, but on the other hand, you may need a break and a chance to return to normality. And if you haven’t read Paradise Lost recently, it may pay to have a copy of the Cliffs notes handy.
If you enjoy suspense that tickles your imagination then put this on your reading list. The new paperback edition will be out in March.
