Sleepy Hollow by Peter Lerangis

It is 1799, the eve if a new century. In New York City, young Constable Ichabod Crane is eager to use his latest scientific methods and his powers of deduction to solve the most brutal of crimes. But nothing can prepare him for the shocking murders that take him far from the city's cobblestones to the eerie town of Sleepy Hollow.
Awaiting him are three beheaded bodies, all apparently victims of a legendary Headless Horseman returned from the grave to exact revenge. With the help of an orphaned child and a beautiful young woman, Ichabod uses reason to confront the horrors of the unexplained.
But the reality of Sleepy Hollow's waking nightmare is always before him. A reality where witches cast spells in the darkened woods...trees bleed...and a demon rides at night.

This is a novelization of one of my favorite Johnny Depp performances. Based on the movie "Sleepy Hollow", Ichabod Crane is a forensic scientist of sorts, come to investigate a series of strange beheadings in Sleepy Hollow. Little does he know that love and peril are soon to find him. This book had me turning pages rapidly and savoring every word. A great book to re-read over and over. Enjoy! Thanks for reading and God bless. -Corley S.

'Sleepy Hollow' is definitely a good book to read for pleasure, if you are interesting in reading horror stories. I truly agree that its a book that must be read by horror lovers out there. Even if you never heard of this book before, and you are a Stephen King lover. Then this is the book you must read, because it has a lot of myteries, horror and of course, actions. Plus, this book is also made into a film. So, it makes a lot easier to understand if you understand book, then you can also follow it along with the movie.

Before seeing a film I like to read the book or screenplay first. Of all of the movie based books I've ever read, this is by far the BEST. It's extremely well written and follows the movie very well. Unless you have the time do not buy this book because you WILL NOT be able to put it down. It keeps you interested by leaving you mystified,scared,sad,humored, and happy.I loaned this book, read it twice, watched the film by directed by Tim Burton, purchased the book, read it again and came back to write this after buying this and the film.I definately recommend this book.

I liked this book. I personal liked how there was some action in it with the headless horseman. I also liked how Ichabod handeled things that came his way. I think people who can handle some gore should read this book. It was so cool how the headless horseman rode by and chopped off peoples heads. I think Ichabod was very brave and heroic.

I have to agree with Angie the storyline in 'Sleepy Hollow' was better than the original but it had some different twists and turns like in the original Icchabod Crane was a schoolmaster but in this version he's a detective...I've always loved the 'Sleepy Hollow' stories because I loved hearing about the legendary Headless Horseman...
