#BookBeginnings, #Friday56 & A Little Ramble -- Heather Graham's The Evil Inside

Friday again & time for Friday 56 & Book Beginnings! As always, Friday56 (share a blurb from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences & your thoughts) is at Rose City Reader.

I just finished the fourth book in Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series -- The Evil Inside. I loved it from the very beginning just for the simple fact that I love Graham, I love the Krewe, and I knew that this one was set in Salem, Massachusetts right before Halloween. I also knew, however, basically what to expect:

Of course, knowing the general formula still doesn't leave me fully prepared for the details and nitty-gritty involved with each story. Who's the boy in the road covered in blood? Whose blood is it? And, since I picked my 56% blurb before I started to really read the book I also had to wonder what was going on with the house!

Without giving too much away I can tell you that the house from the 56 is where the boy from the BookBeginnings had lived with his family ... until they were all killed in much the same manner as two other families had been killed in the house's past.

Freaky, eh?

Of course, being set in Salem the tale ties in a bit of the historical bits about the witch trials and Puritans and general tolerance/intolerance. I have ancestors who were around at the time of the trials (my tenth-great grandmother was the half-sister of one of the trial magistrates) so anything about that time has always interested me.

Add a ghost story and murder mystery? Even better!

All in all I was right about loving the book. Possibly even moreso than I had expected.

  4. I haven't read anything by this author. This book may be too scary for me, but the opening definitely grabs me.

    1. One of the things I love about a Graham is that she doesn't write the gore and brutality. It's more suspense than horror.

  5. Wouldn't that be a horrifying sight to come upon? A naked child dripping with blood. Oh perish the thought.
