S. Joan PapekHaunting and frightening, Cuckoo is a clever blend of mystery and horror with just a taste of science fiction for spice.
Wright, a Scottish author with genuine talent, uses the concept of writing "cross genre" (merging two or more genres into one tale) in an interesting way. Using flashbacks for at least one-half of the story, he hands the reader pieces of the puzzle one at a time, keeping them in suspense until the last piece is in place at the very end. The twist ending comes as a real surprise. Those that like mysteries with the flavor of horror will enjoy this book.
