    Scary Crime Novel

    Loads of police proceedural stuff, a dash of crime noir and a slowly growing horror feeling make for a creepy short novel.

    Very Suspenseful

    This novella was a very good read. 206 pages of suspense. A real page turner. The ending came fast, but was not what I suspected! Highly recommend. Good job author. Vallie

    AMAZING!

    I bought this book because it was free, and I decided to open it and was immediately mesmerized. I finished it in two sittings and was so upset when I went to turn the page and there were no more pages. This book isnt for everyone, but I loved it.

    Behold the Child was a one-sitting very quick read. How could it

    Behold the Child was a one-sitting very quick read. How could it not be, it was an 88 page fast paced adventure. This novel took off from with action from the very first paragraph. I will admit that Sam {the main character} was not a likeable fellow on any level, the way he did his job, the way he treated his wife was to me deplorable. And honestly, you would think his attitude would change considering the events that took place-it really didn't.

    The only problem I found myself having was that because it is a short novella, and that so much had to be told in order for the story to make sense, there were some pretty big jumps in time at the beginning. I had a difficult time realizing how much time, for example one minute severely injured in a hospital bed to sitting on a couch healing the next.

    Over-all the short story was well-told, had the mystery down to the last few pages, so it kept you guessing the whole way. The ending was something that I was NOT expecting, but finished the story easily. As you finish all the clues and pieces begin to fall into place, and you will think back about things from earlier in the book to realize how the story was foretold.

    I would recommend this to anyone that like a quick morsel of horror and mystery before bed. Be prepared for quite a bit of swearing, but this really does build the character of Sam and those he deals with.

    Not bad

    Starts off good but it ends kind of strange as if there is more to tell but the author just stopped right in the middle of a thought.

    Okay.

    Main character was a sleazy individual. Suspenseful story with a weird ending.
