A cool little hell
This writer combines a good detective tale with a horror story, quite successfully. The writing style is fast paced and matches the intensity of the action, but just occasionally the story dragged a little. Many of the very short chapters could be combined, as there is no logical reason to split them, but there are some very good hooks at the end of some chapters, impelling the reader to carry on reading, On the whole the story is well written, with a choppy writing style, short sentences, and speedy dialogue that match this type of tale very well. What description there was, was very well written, and not overdone. We were disappointed with the ending, feeling that much more could have been made of it. This is clearly the first in a sequel, because the villain disappears at the end. We enjoyed the dialogue, which was well written and very clear, and on the whole the quality of writing was definitely better than average.
