Story 2 - Old Habits by Elizabeth Horton-Newton
Scary beyond words! So well-written you could buy the book on its own value, not to mention the treasures of other stories. The psychology, the seemingly calm tone in narration, the rhythm in the organisation of events, the linking between past and present events, the horrifying villain and his own justification of everything he does... brutally well-created and shocking! And then the ending - painfully morbid and true! Makes you wonder what depths authors dig into to unleash their stories, all puns intended (avoiding spoilers for future readers;). If you are interested in crime, serial killers, horror - this will be your favourite dessert tray! This one is not for the faint-hearted, I can tell you. Elizabeth Horton-Newton truly throws down the gauntlet with Gaunt for every reader. But she duly delivers a tale of a creepy, fearful man next door, and her tale may give you nightmares!
High praise from the gifted Anita Kovacevic! Thanks so much!
