Tyler is an amnesiac, drifting aimlessly across the country, struggling to regain his lost memories. When he arrives in Geddy's Moon, a sleepy town in the middle of the Kansas wheat fields, fragments of his past begin to resurface. But as he establishes new relationships in town, and spends time with the local librarian and her son, he finds himself tormented by nightmares that grow more unsettling each night. What horrific events took place before Tyler arrived in Geddy's Moon? And could he have brought a terrifying - and possibly supernatural - danger along with him? As the pieces of his fractured memory begin to fall into place, he fears that it may already be too late to keep himself, and those he's begun to care about, safe from a vicious evil.

I was walking, humming a tune. I was stopped by my boyfriend. "Come over tonight." I nodded. That night..... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I walked in. My boyfriend greeted me. "Hey." I nodded. When we got upstairs, he asked, "May I kiss you?" "Sure!" I awnsered. He kissed me loud. It was a very hot kiss. He put his hand on my boo.bz. I shivered. My clothes fell off. His did too. "Wow." He said. "May I touch you're boob.z?" He asked. I nodded. He unclipped my b.ra and slid his hands down. He closed his eyes and squeezed them gently. He kissed my forehead, mouth, neck, each b.oob.z, and my belly. He stopped. "I want to touch you're v. Sooo badly. I long to. May I?" "Sure." I replied. With his fingers, he slowly peeled my panties off. (More?)
“Geddy’s Moon” has a very well thought out start. Is amnesia an over-played device in the genre? It has been used excessively but done right it can feel fresh. Tyler’s amnesia feels fresh and is, thankfully, not belaboured. Mulhall builds tension well in the first part of the novel. A speaker at a networking event that I attended once said, “Don’t tell me a sunset is pretty, tell me WHY it’s pretty.” To tell you why or how the tension was done well would be to give you a heads up on the secret the author and publisher seem to want to keep. “Geddy’s Moon” is a novel where expectations should be left at the door because this story is not going anywhere that you think it might. Mulhall masters rhythm and flow in his story-line. The author seems to have that instinctively right time down to pull his creative punches. Unexpected twists hit at just the right time to hold the readers attention. The only point where things felt that they happened too quickly was at the end. Never does the story drag. “Geddy’s Moon” contains a large amount of information that leads me to believe that this novel is the start of a series. Readers might compare Mulhall to Dean Koontz but I think he falls into a category all his own in that “Geddy’s Moon” has a classic psychological horror feel.
I had never read a lot of horror before but John Mulhall has made me a fan of the genre. Geddy’s Moon has all of the terrifying and gory elements I would hope for in a horror novel- done so well that each plot twist is a shocking surprise- but it also has relationships, human emotions so honestly written the reader can’t help but feel them along with the character, places and settings described with just the right amount of vivid detail, and dialogue that ranges from humorous to heartwrenching , but always feels authentic. This is the kind of story that lingers in your mind, and upon finishing it, I immediately wanted to reread it. Geddy’s Moon has become one of my all-time favorite books, and John Mulhall my new favorite author.
