Présentation de l'éditeur

Can the living haunt the living?

When Izzy Stanley, an ambitious TV broadcaster, hears that Susan Atkins has petitioned to be released from prison to be allowed to die peacefully at home, she cannot resist making the wise-crack on air that Susan Atkins' petition is only fair as she herself helped Sharon Tate to die peacefully at home in her turn.

Her impromptu remark inevitably provokes a tumultuous response, and prompts Susan Atkins herself to demand to see her to explain her perspective now that she has found God, which seems like the journalistic coup of the century.

Even better, Izzy suddenly realizes that she herself bears an uncanny resemblance to Susan Atkins' victim, Sharon Tate, a stroke of luck she fully intends to exploit to the full.

Then she starts having dreams in which she is Sharon Tate on that fateful night. The thing is, though, they don't really feel like dreams ….

Okay well, I was just going to look at the cover and read the blurb. I did that, and then thought I'll just read the sample, I did that, and then I downloaded the book and now a day later I've finished it. If that's not a recommendation for this read I don't know what is. And to top it all off, I wasn't really looking for another book, my kindle is already full of juicy reads.
I don't know if the pull of this was the fact its cemented in real events and characters, compelling and frightening enough, given who its about. But I also got pulled in by the honesty of the narrative. I can't say I fell in love with Izzy. She's self centered and annoying at times, but I guess that's why she feels so real and made a great storyteller. All the other characters from Izzy's husband Ethan, to Clive, Izzie's make-up artist were so well fleshed out I got them and their perspectives observing these weird and frightening events as outsiders to Izzie's internal thoughts.

This is more than just a scare fest, although there are plenty of those moments. ( I had to sleep with the light on all night last night. I'm a scaredy cat a the best of times, but with Susan Atkins demented spirit as the source, it kind of tips you over the edge in the horror stakes, and then this morning reading one of those scenes, while a random kids toy starts playing on its own, brrrr, the temperature dropped a few degrees I'm sure.)
This is almost a recount of a life disturbed by the disturbing, and how that might actually play out. Of course you have the obvious believability issues, where no one see's except the one its happening to ( except in one instance). But I loved the way there was none of that, "don't do it/don't open that door/don't go out there." It just happened and Izzy screams and faints and lets it play out because she has no choice, she can't get away even though she desperately wants to.
Her meetings with Atkins, were brilliantly written. I loved the dialogue between them, the bad face and the good face of Susand and Sadie sent chills down my spine.
All in all whether you're into horror and paranormal this read is nothing but compelling.So if you start it, be prepared to spend a day finishing it. Mind I am kind of glad its over, so now I can hopefully get some sleep with the lights out. LOL

i have always been fascinated with the Manson family, and while this book is a fiction novel, it reads like the events are happening to the reader. It was hard for me to put my kindle down, i didnt want the story to end. It is nail biting creepy yet completely heartbreaking at the same time. You dont have to know alot about the manson family to enjoy this book. it is simply fantastic!

I thought this book was a very well written book with many twist and turns. I found the Character Izzy to be a very shallow and at times very hard to like or identify with. I can not say at the end I was disappointed when she discovered what a mistake she had made.

This book reads very quickly, it was easy to figure out which direction the plot was going and what the ending would be. The only complaint I had was that it was rather predictable.

All in All the book was entertaining and a great read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling story 18 février 2014

The story is about a reporter who interviewed one Manson's followers and then haunted by her. The reporter became pregnant and the haunting became worse and by the time the baby was born she was deathly afraid of it causing her to divorce her husband and relinquish custody of the child to him. The final words of the story took you right back to the Chilling story. Ms McKenna's first story, "The Wedding Gift" was another first rate horror story and in my opinion with "Family Matters" I feel is pushing Steven King.
