Terrifying a novel of mounting suspense with an unsettlingly human heart at its core black as it may beTwo years after losing their infant son to a tragic accident Peter Martell a novelist with a peculiar knack for finding lost things and his wife Sylvia are devastated to learn they may no longer be able to have children In need of a fresh start and compelled by strange dreams the couple decide to rent a lake house in the idyllic town of Gilchrist Massachusetts a place where bad things might just happ. Very well written intelligent horror story The kind of horror that sneaks up slowly and ratchets up the apprehension bit by bit Reminiscent of Stephen King this author gives life to a variety of characters and draws their personalities with skill in the space of a few pages you KNOW these people Galacar gives them lifeand all too often he takes it away Small town with a very nasty undercurrent but how much of that is from a different place and how much is from a killer on the roadhis brain is suirming like a toad Jim Morrison s lyric seems fitting I was a little dissatisfied with the ending but I can t really tell you why It s possible that the author has left the door open to a follow up book which I will gladly read but then again this may be it I definitely do recommend this book but be prepared for some heart pounding moments and needing to put the book down for a few minutes just to catch your breath

    I decided to read this novel because some of the reviews said that if one liked Stephen King they would enjoy Gilchrist. Well they were right and then some. Christian Galacar wrote a story that reminded me of some of King's earlier works such as "It" and "Christine" not to mention "The Stand". This is meant as a high compliment. The author handled the horror aspect wonderfully and made the novel very easy to read and h

    I loved this book. It's great storytelling, great writing, great characters, and great horror. It definitely reminded me of Stephen King but easier to read and digest.

    Very well written, intelligent horror story. The kind of horror that sneaks up slowly and ratchets up the apprehension bit by bit. Reminiscent of Stephen King, this author gives life to a variety of characters, and draws their person

    I am happy that I stuck with this book and finished it. I was not sure at first, it started a little slow. I stuck with it and it took me 3 days to finish. Strong characters. strong plot. A little all over the place at times which is way I almost gave it up. I feel that there are to many characters, but with that said each one has a purpose. There are moments in the story which makes the reader wonder just wh

    I loved reading this book, so much so that I didn't want it to end!
    Peter and Sylvia are just existing since the death of their little three year old boy. He fell through a second floor window while his Mother was running a bath for him. How do you get over grief like that? By drinking to excess and a failed suicide. After a succession of weird nightmares Peter takes his wife to a little tourist town of Gilc

    I personally am a fan of the earlier Stephen King novels but have struggled to find a novel that can mirror King's earlier books. This book is a blast from the past and for me could have been written by the master himself.I would highly recommend this book if you like a thought provoking horror that delivers on gore and storyline with an unexpected ending..you won't be disappointed..I wasn't

    Gripping story of heartache and scared half knowing something is wrong in the place. Well written, almost as though some personal experiences were expressed, (expelled), in the writing. Look forward to reading other offerings from this author.
