I'm a huge fan, but he just phoned it in with a friend ex machina ending and a stupid premise
This was an entertaining story, although not one of Mr Herbert's best. It is actually a bit of an experiment and must be one of the first crime/horror mash-ups written. It does this a little clumsily in places and when the horror does appear it sort of comes out of nowhere. The narrator was clear and fine most of the time. All in all, this was plenty of fun and definitely worth a read but not spectacular.
This is my first James Herbert novel and while it held me to the end, it was more determination than anything else.
I'm not sure that there will be a second one for me.
It got it hard to decide whether it was horror or crime and much of it is unexplained.
