Cool title, yes?
A copy of the above arrived last week via a very large carrier pigeon. It has a striking cover and is the debut novel by Brisneyland resident and filmmaker, Stephen M Irwin http://stephenmirwin.com/.
Why do I mention this? Because I cracked the cover this morning and found myself reading, reading, reading instead of just ‘taking a peak’ as I’d planned. The writing is very, very strong and the voice is compelling, engaging and authoritative. It’s pretty impressive to be so struck by this in the first few pages. I can only hope this continues through the rest of the book – I’ll let you know.
It’s horror … it’s a little bit crime noir … it’s The Dead Path. Did I mention it’s a cool title? From Hachette Australia.
