Most Helpful Customer Reviews
When you browse the current horror shelves it's hard to find a horror or supernatural novel that's not vampires or zombies. Graham Masterton may have dabbled in these areas, however The Painted Man is a breath of fresh air. Masterton twists the standard serial killer crime novel on it's head when he adds his usual gruesome flair, in this case in a standalone second Sissy Sawyer mystery. There are plenty of thrills and plot twists as the story unfolds. Clever from start to finish, this is a recommended read with good characterisation and scenes of great horror.
