Instead we have our journalist and main protagonist Clive White who is shipped off to do a seemingly boring and laborious assignment of covering the annual carnival in the little town of Marlowe, of course on arrival, it is quite obvious Marlowe isn't the quite little town it appears to be, it is merely a cover for something more sinister as our journalist soon discovers as he delves deeper into the town's history, and the death count is high, and the people are even stranger.

So there we have it, usually when I'm reading I often find myself comparing it to or imagining a certain film or sometimes another book and while none really sprang to mine it did remind me of a certain Supernatural episode, in where the boys are used as a sacrifice for a monster than needs feeding once a year or whatever it is, and that's more or less what this book is, a presence or a force that every year requires a young innocent girl to be killed in order to keep peace and destroy everyone inside this little place, it was fine, a little predictable and certainly any smart person knew how it was going to wrap up, but it was done nicely, a nice steady pace to read at, not really hard to read but a little slow in places where you can see the author is trying to cram some back-story in there or develop Clive or his sidekick honestly forgot her name not going to lie.
Although the characters in this book were a little cardboard cut out for me, there was nothing to them that made them stand out hence the forgetting of the woman's name who spends over half the book with Clive nobody really shone out and gave it that extra something, Clive was fine, bless him, trying his best to take charge and show authority, I feel Parker did his best at trying to make emotions believable as possible and the actions they took to be reasonable and not be OTT, but like I say with a predictable plot its hard to get excited, or motivated, and a lot of the time I was reading through necessity rather than being on the edge of my seat not knowing what was going to happen.
You know what for 77p and if you haven't anything planned it could be a quick read regardless of enjoyment and I didn't feel cheated or want my money back hence the 3 stars and not There are no discussion topics on this book yet. About Edward Parker.
