Review by Bridgey
In The Dark - Richard Laymon *****Jane is a librarian, one night as she prepares to close up she finds and envelope with a $50 bill and a note with a clue. She follows up on the clue and finds $100 dollars with a further offer of doubling her money each time she completes a task. The note is signed MOG (Master of Games). Each task gets more and more scary to complete, expect graveyards, late nights and death. :)I have read a few Laymon novels and this one doesn't fail to live up to his legacy to shock. I think most of his books are male orientated with their fair share of jiggling boobs and bums. I just love them. I've not read the Beast house trilogy yet, but this book would seem an ideal place to start for fans new to his work.
Review by Marlene-NL
Finished this book last night. Wow what a difference with the last book I read. This one I could not stop reading and it kept me thinking about it even when I could not read.<br/><br/>My dad gave me about 5 books by Richard Laymon. This is the first book I have read by him and I loved it. So original. I love the toughness, the gore, the sex. lol. Okay sometimes the story was a a bit like "A girl would never do that, but all in all I really loved reading it. <br/><br/>I picked this book because it had the best reviews out of the books i had.<br/>Already reading another Richard Laymon book. And he has written so many books. I am thrilled to explore more.
