Présentation de l'éditeur

Dead Soul Mary by M.J. Winn has been selected as an IndieReader's BEST BOOK OF 2014. This haunting, literary horror novel is must-read for Horror and Suspense fiction connoisseurs. Not for those looking for a quick, easy scare. Dead Soul Mary will stay with you long after the last page..

Megan Bauer, a spirited seventeen-year-old high school student, didn’t know souls could become sick. She didn’t know souls could die while the host lives on, unaware. But she’s going to find out. Within M.J. Winn’s chilling horror novel, DEAD SOUL MARY, Megan must save good people from brutally turning against one another in unprovoked, bloodthirsty rages. But is there time? For she must first defeat her own demons before taking on the utterly terrifying one that is incubating an evil, supernatural virus.

Can Megan stop the plague of violence before it becomes unstoppable?

"A vast number of horror novels produced today represent genre formula writing at its worst, with shallow characters, predictable plots, and story premises that don't seem very extraordinary, at all. Not so in Dead Soul Mary..." D.Donovan, Senior eBook Review, Midwest Book Reviews

If you enjoy great writing, strong characters, and a spellbinding story, DEAD SOUL MARY is the book for you!

This IndieReader 5-Star-rated TOP BOOK PICK represents literary horror at its best, but contains adult themes and is intended for a MATURE READERSHIP ONLY.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic! 13 avril 2014

I would fist like to say that this cover art is exceptional. I will admit that I readily, easily, and regularly DO judge a book by it's cover and this one wins. It's a beautiful photo that combined with the title make buying and reading a no-brainer.

M.J. Winn comes out of the gates with his first published novel and should be exceptionally proud. It is a book that immerses you immediately and keeps the pages turning.

The novel is unique in that it spans a great time frame from late 60's into the early 2K's, and Winn handily is able to use both image and vocabulary to put you in the place in time. This is a rare talent. This is a thriller, maybe even a horror story to some- and it will leave you with a gasp stuck right in the middle of your throat.

This is definitely an adult book with mature themes, but let's face it the genre calls to the 16-25 set and given society today I think it's appropriate for a later teen to adult.

Thanks for a great book, keep them coming.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 `Diseases of the soul are more dangerous and more numerous than those of the body.' Cicero 25 mars 2014

Long Island author Michael James Winn is both a writer and a police officer whose debut novel DEAD SOUL MARY gives notice of an impressive new talent. Though there is an increasing number of writers incorporating horror stories into their shelve of themes, very likely due to the growing affinity for the genre as indicated by the popularity of serials such as the Twilight series, the Divergent series et al that seem to be devised with subsequent film adaptations that continue to tick coins into the coffers, there remain a relatively small number of writers to whom this genre seems so natural that their works have staying power - think Poe, HP Lovecraft, Richard Matheson, MR James, Dean Koontz, Algernon Blackwood, Stephen King. What makes these authors stand above the others is their ability to incorporate the incredulous moments into the landscape of stories that seem so organic that they are all the more strange and terrifying. There are elements in this very long debut novel that arise so frequently in the tale that their presence suggests that MJ Winn may just be stepping into that realm.

One particular aspect of Winn's capacity to scare the reader enough to check the lights and locked doors while reading is his very subtle dropping of hints about characters - a mere fragment of a sentence or a phrase that reveals how the mind of that character is functioning. And once we realize that Winn is dealing with that nebulous concept of souls, and the death of souls while the corporal housing remains living, he makes us search for clues that are present on every page of this elegant writing. Opening a story with a shuddering experience in 1968 in which a poor mother is bathing her child, noticing the child (Desmond) has a previously unnoted birthmark, and then slipping out of motherhood to open the door to a dark landlord for obligatory physical remuneration for the inability to make rent payments - in that first chapter, before the story begins Winn has set the stage for the dark deeds that will follow.

But the story, well synopsized elsewhere is as follows: 'Megan Bauer, a young Korean-American girl must combat a sociopath, a delusional "Typhoid Mary" who is purposely spreading a virus that infects not the physical being, but a person's very essence. The disease attacks the inner duality of human nature that exists within each of us. Right and wrong become shuffled. Savage acts of violence follow. Once the illness gets a foothold, the corrupted soul soon dies, and the host is consumed by hate. Desmond, a brutal, career criminal, willfully infects innocent people. Megan becomes one of his victims. Before she can save society, she must first save herself.' The ability to draw the reader into the concept of soul death and still make the story a mystery driven thriller takes talent - a gift MJ Winn so obviously has. He writes with the skill of a poet, imbues his narration with dark humor, creates a plot scenario like a playwright, and all the while keeps his story as fine literature. Talent, incipient notoriety. Read and see. Grady Harp, March 14

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good characters, disturbing stories 16 mai 2014

The author shows lives intersecting and the influence of others’ choices on their own paths.
It shows how our lives are Interwoven stories yet we all have our own individual demons that we must endure alone. Sometimes creepy and often embarrassing, seeing people’s actions when no one is watching can be disturbing.

M.J. Winn describes well-defined characters that make you picture quirky people you may know. I was routing for the shy, awkward Drew, the sad, lonely police officer and Megan, the somewhat naïve high school senior. The characters are well rounded. Each has their flaws as well as sensitive side. A mother and daughter battle their pain through obesity. Trish is the promiscuous teenager looking for attention. Megan is the adopted Korean girl trying to blend in with her white family and friends. Delores and Desmond have a difficult mother and son relationship that degrades as they struggle with poverty and loss.

Each person is searching for a way to fit in and experience love of some kind amidst their complicated and messy daily lives.

I don’t know what to say about this book. It was perfectly entertaining for the first 85% of it but the ending was unsatisfying. I wanted a better explanation of why the murders occurred. There were too many elusions to religious meaning without explanations.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Scary, gruesome, thought provoking 14 avril 2014

Dolores has lost her job and is facing eviction. In order to save the roof over her and her son Desmond’s head she succumbs to the sexual favors in order to stay where she is. Desmond leads a life of criminal activity and does bad things to people. Megan, a typical 17-year old teenager is trying to find her way and teams up with an unlikely ally with Drew. There are many story lines to follow in this scary novel and at times I felt a little lost, but I kept reading and in the end it all comes together. The author has such an imagination for stories which makes this book so good. It is a bit scary and gruesome, but if you don’t mind definitely read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Author M.J. Winn does an outstanding job is his débuts novel Dead Soul Mary! 12 avril 2014

Author M.J. Winn does an outstanding job is his débuts novel Dead Soul Mary.

This is a modern-day real horror story that will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time and will have you sleeping with the lights on. Brilliant and gripping are the two words that best describe this book. I would say that this novel is a cross between Dean Koontz and E. A. Poe except on a whole other level.

Main Character Megan Vauer is a 17 year-old girl who has her work cut out for her in wicked fashion as she tries to save her life and soul. The way her character is described and developed in the story is phenomenal and is multidimensional that keeps you engulfed the entire time. Not an easy task to accomplish.

Once I got started I could not put this one down. Words to best describe this novel are, Gripping, Original, Haunting, Terrifying and Descriptive that will captivate your mind and senses all throughout. I had to say it was quite disheartening to see it come to an end and left me wanting more.

5 Stars and highly recommended
