A gripping and macabre start to this atmospheric chiller.I could almost see the scene with my own eyes being played out.Excellent imagery with nothing spared for the imagination as the evil fiend sliced open his victim as if she were nothing more than a joint of meat.If she were unconscious after her throat had been cut then she would have been spared the agony and torture of the menace which awaited her lifeless body.I enjoyed the descriptive scenes leading up to terror which awaited this victim.The tension was palpable and this prologue (chapter 1) certainly whetted my appetite for what promises to be a right ripping yarn.
