Unspeakable by Graham Masterton

'One of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time' PETER JAMES.

Deaf child welfare officer Holly Summers 'hears' by her amazing talent for lip-reading - a talent the Portland, Oregon, police are very happy to call upon in difficult criminal investigations. Using her unique gift to help the police investigate the recent disappearances of a string of women, little does Holly suspect that one of the enemies she's made in her day job - an occupational hazard - has vowed a supernatural vengeance on her, and the horror begins when the one person Holly is living for is targeted: her precious daughter...

I've been an avid Masterton fan since the early 1980s and I've read most of his work. What can I say about Unspeakable except that whilst I enjoyed the ride, I found it somewhat lightweight. First of all, the plot seemed to take ages to get going and secondly it seemed to go off at tangents, which left me confused as to the main theme. I thought the plot was going to centre around missing women but, in actual fact, it was hardly touched upon until the very end when its significance became apparent. This left me thinking most of what I'd read previously was twaddle. The biggest flaw was a small paragraph where the main character is miraculously able to hear, despite Masterton going to great lengths to describe her as totally deaf. The final few chapters are gripping and the final page mind-blowing. Don't get me wrong, this book is a good read but it's not one of Masterton's best.

Hearing impaired Holly Summers is very happy with the life she has. She has an adorable little girl named Daisy, works for the Portland child welfare office and is a court accredited lip reader. She works for the police and when she sees people talking about a crime they are about to commit she calls the cops and her testimony is legally acceptable in trials........................ As a social worker she sees many heartbreaking things done to children and when she calls on Mary Joseph, she finds her beaten to a pulp and her son Daniel is unconscious with almost every bone in his body is broken. They arrest Native American Elliot Joseph who puts a curse on Holly that seems to effectively work. Holly is suspended from her job when a young girl commits suicide after she confronts her about being abused. Her daughter is kidnapped and the man she considers a dear friend is responsible because he wants her to participate in an orgy. If she cooperates Daisy will be released. Is it bad luck or an Indian¿s curse? Either way Holly¿s life is in danger...................... Graham Masterton is a fantastic horror and thriller writer who knows how to build a growing atmosphere of foreboding. The story line shows the horrifying things Holly sees in her work as well as the supernatural kind where an evil man persuades a good woman to believe that one person can curse another because of the happenings of certain events in her own life seemingly the result of the curse. Fans of Richard Laymon and Douglass Clegg will want to read UNSPEAKABLE................. Harriet Klausner
