'If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat' Stephen King Mordocks's cave is one of the wonders of the world: a place where, every year, thousands of sightseers go deep beneath the earth's surface to marvel at Nature's handiwork.

But it's also home to things Nature never intended - violent, evil things. And when a power failure traps a group of tourists underground, the creatures emerge from the darkness...

Review by

Typical Laymon and not one to read if you are easily offended.Mordock's cave is split in two parts but only one is open to sightseers, the other was bricked off after an accident over 60 years ago. A tourist party is trapped in the cave and soon panic starts to set in. The race begins between the trapped trying to escape and the rescuers attempting to break in. However the owner of the hotel (that is built above the cave) and his son have a very dark secret.....As with a lot of Laymon's books the novels has 2 separate storylines that come nicely together for a grand conclusion. Expect a lot of taboo themes to be visited, including incest, rape and plenty of gratuitous violence.A really good Laymon offering and one that could be easily recommended, just not to the squeamish!4 Stars
