    A Ghostly Peepshow

    Peter Giglio’s Sunfall Manor is one brutally atmospheric story. Read it in one sitting (I dare you not to), then take the next week or so to try and dislodge the tendrils of existential torment from your brain. This lingering nightmare of a story is a ghostly peepshow that will likely cure even the most dedicated peeping Tom.

    Not since Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas have I encountered a story with such perfectly executed tone, and a story’s character with so spot-on a voice. However, the similarities between these writers’ books end with their excellence. Koontz’s Odd Thomas is a living person who sees dead people. Giglio’s Edgar is a ghost who sees living people.

    Edgar is haunted by the living, trapped in Sunfall Manor with a ragged collection of humanity’s dregs. Night after night, in a sick-making cycle of despair, loneliness and angst, Edgar travels from apartment to apartment in a forced voyeurism, hoping to find some clue to his imprisonment.

    But enough of that. Joe McKinney said it all clearer and better in his fine introduction to this story. If you’ve never heard of Peter Giglio, buy the book for McKinney’s intro. Then read the rest of the book…you’ll be glad you did. And be glad you made Peter Giglio’s acquaintance. And be very glad he is writing, and getting better with every book.
