5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping from start to finish!

Another excellent read from this consistently talented author! It may be a short story but it feels like a feature length film. 

You are instantly familiar with the characters and the setting thanks to the high level of detail and the plot just drags you in from the start.
Reading this alone on a night shift probably wasn't a wise choice - it's full of genuine scares and doesn't hold back with brutality!

A gripping book from start to finish and one that I couldn't put down - reading it in one sitting!
Looking forward to his future work and highly recommend this and his previous titles. 
5.0 out of 5 stars A book for daylight hours.

Another excellent book. A very clever concept once again from Pete Worrall. 
As others have said, I read the book from start to finish with pauses for food and drink. Well worth the small price for an excellent read. Will there be more. I hope so.


5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping

Read it at night mostly and at 53 years of age, found myself needing to turn the light on to continue to read it, it was that nerve jangling. Great book from a very talented author. Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good? ...it brought on my asthma. 

"Run, just run!!" "...a deep moaning entered the air..." An involuntary expletive also entered the air, but it was from my voice not from the written book. This was quickly followed by another vocal call "Run, just run". 
I found myself actually talking to the two characters 'Scott' and 'Terri' -who had babe in arms- as I knew what was coming. I wanted them to RUN. 

I was actually beginning to feel scared with that tense heavy stomach feeling and raised heart rate. It brought on my asthma which... well, I don't want to think about it. 
When a book gets you involved like this you know you're onto something good. 
5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating from start to finish. 

A truly absorbing novel! The story centres on a group of characters trying to establish the link between a pharmaceutical company and the murders of people who coroner's state died two months ago when evidence proves they were actually alive 24 hours earlier. 
The author has written a story that will suck you in, drawing you inside a situation that will have you ridding your garden of weeds! The end of every chapter hooks you into the next, making it impossible to put down. The characters are easily identifiable and developed seamlessly from the very beginning. 
A scarily, thrilling read with a very well thought-out scenario. 
...bring on the sequel "The Doom Of The Hollow"...if I'm brave enough!! 
5.0 out of 5 stars You'll never walk into your garage again.... 

This book is the sequel to 'They grow upon the eyes' by the same author. I would actually say this isn't a sequel or even a prequel as Pete uses the clever device of having the events in the first half of the book set at the same time as book one but, from some new and some familiar characters point of view. Then the second half is where the two books meet up and we go on from there. Perhaps this book is more of an 'equal'!! Readers who have not read the first book may be a little lost on some of the plot twists so I would advise reading that one first so to get the most out of this one. However it's not essential. 

With it's -the more you look the more you see- stunning front cover (same comment for the first book too) I felt this was going to be an exciting read. Whereas 'They grow upon the eyes' was a scary action thriller, I would say this is more spooky tension with mystery and action thriller. And that is one of the best things about this book. The building of tension by using the readers imagination with locations that they can relate too is not always easy to do. But Pete has done something right when I'm not sure about walking into my junk store of a garage again!! 

5.0 out of 5 stars A sterling follow-up in the series. 

Again, a really strong novel from Pete Worrall. I enjoyed his first novel, They Grow Upon The Eyes, and was eagerly anticipating this - I wasn't to be disappointed. 

His characterisation and plot are eminently believable and the book skips along at just the right pace to keep you enthralled. 

If you are looking for a book to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck this is it....a completely new genre. 

Pete excels in turning the utter banality of everyday life 90 degrees into a truly disturbing and unnerving form of reality - he is John Wyndham for the new millennium. 

Roll on the next instalment! 
5.0 out of 5 stars: All the threads come together to make a tapestry
"All those questions that you were asking from the first two books in this three part series are answered here. Reading this book first will not make sense. You need the build up of tension, anger, loss, mystery and conflict that came with the first two books to feel that sense of satisfaction after an epic series.
The usual flashbacks and time overlapping story threads are here (Yes it feels natural to say 'usual' even though it only happens in the previous book -The Doom of the Hollow- because it's such an effective and cleverly done narrative method) to give that sense of unity to the characters as their individual threads come together in this tapestry.
If you have read the first two books then expect more of the same tension, anger, loss, etc etc all the way up to a final(?) conflict(s) and a twisted ending.
We re-visit old favourite(!!) locations and discover new ones, including a big set piece at Manchester Airport and spooky houses on 'The Eyes'. And yes, all are based real locations you can visit yourself to see where the inspiration came from. A great finish to an epic work, at least seven years in the making."
5.0 out of 5 stars: An emotional rollercoaster of an ending to a groundbreaking trilogy

"After following the author's work with interest, Pete Worrall does not disappoint with the last instalment in the trilogy.

Unlike some authors Pete has shied away from the nice tidy ending but delivered a work that will leave you emotionally drained but incredibly satisfied!
I don't want to say too much or give away spoilers but I promise that you will not be disappointed with The Unforeseen.
Pete's writing style is as top notch as ever and he delivers everything you need.
Don't read alone. "
5.0 out of 5 stars: Looking for the final symphony you will find it here!

Having been left a family mansion things turn sour once the couple enter the house, an unexpected end that's typically Pete. A fantastic read.
5.0 out of 5 stars: Gripping Short Story

Claustrophobic, scary but enjoyable tale, I felt like an observer wanting to shout 'get out of there!' 
5.0 out of 5 stars: A Great Short Story From Pete

Another great story from Pete, who would have thought a jar of honey would cause so much drama, with a twist.
5.0 out of 5 stars: A Great Short Story Chiller

Read this first person short story and my hair stood on end throughout. I have read Pete Worralls other works which are equally chilling but intelligent and thought provoking literature.
