Publisher's Summary

When washed-up priest Angela Murs and skittish ghost hunter Tim Golding are summoned to a vast country manor to help a sick little boy, they have no idea what to expect. While it's clear that young Sammie is a very disturbed child, there's surely no way he could have been behind the recent spate of accidents or the death of his father. The child is dirty, malnourished, and perhaps the victim of a negligent mother, but as Angela and Tim's investigations take them deeper into the mystery, they realize there is much more going on than they ever could have imagined. When the blood begins to flow, there will be no escape, and little Sammie will finally be forced to show his true nature.

SAM

If you could sum up Sam in three words, what would they be?

Sam is a creepy and atmospheric gem that hits on so many horror notes but then does its own thing at the end. I am still contemplating the end and may listen to it again with that in mind.

Very good book. Great twist to an old plot

Loved the book. if you like supernatural book, like the Exorcist, you'll like this book.. to me the ending makes the book. hate a good book with a standard or boring ending. love it when a book ends with a twist or a suprise. Liked how this book ended.

Brilliant

If you could sum up Sam in three words, what would they be?

Scary, Brilliant, Thrilling

What other book might you compare Sam to, and why?

The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty.Sam has stronger characters and scared me more than the Exorcist.

Have you listened to any of Nigel Patterson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have many book narrated by Nigel Patterson up this is my favorite by far.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Sam's mum is killed.

Any additional comments?

If you love horror and you love audio this is a must for you.

S**t scary!!

If you could sum up Sam in three words, what would they be?

Scary, Scary, Scary!!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sam?

Gave me the creeps - just the thought something SO malevolent could be part of a ten year old child's 'makeup' - UGH!

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

N/A

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

KEEP THE LIGHTS ON!!

Any additional comments?

Truly spine-chilling! Reminds me if both The Omen and Exorcist combined but in some unsettling way, yet 'better'!
