Prepare to have your beliefs about life and death turned upside down...

150,000 downloads in the past 12 months alone.

With his acknowledged individual storytelling expertise, D. M. Mitchell pens yet another taut psychological thriller with a difference that twists and turns to its deliciously devious and unexpected conclusion. Discover for yourself why D. M. Mitchell is being hailed as one of the most exciting new writers of thriller and supernatural tales in the UK.

From reviews of The King of Terrors:

'Artfully written to keep the reader wanting more...'
'This book is the best yet, having all the twists and turns expected now of this author.'
'DM Mitchell proved his abilities with Max and House of the Wicked, and this new one for fans of his style should not takes a lot to scare me!'
'I had a hard time putting this book down'
'An extremely well written book. Would love to read a sequel.'
'Mitchell's books become increasingly "want more"!'
'I really enjoyed this book. I bought it on a whim and I am glad I did.'

“Hell, sir, I haven’t seen anything like this in all the time I’ve been on the force.” He took a cigarette from a silver case, offered me one, which I refused. “Are you sure you don’t want one?’ he said as he flicked his lighter into life and touched the flame to the end of the cigarette. “You might find you’ll need it.”

It begins in the year 1929. DCI Thomas Rayne discovers the decomposed body of an unknown man in a Suffolk barn, a strange black symbol painted on the barn wall. A crime that Inspector Rayne never solved. A case he would go to his death calling his Curse.

More than eighty years later in 2011, guilt-ridden Gareth Davies seeks a quiet life in rural Wales. But his self-enforced solitude is soon to be violently shattered. Driving home one night in a snowstorm he knocks down and nearly kills a mysterious young woman in a country lane.

He doesn’t know it but his life will never be the same again. The woman claims to be his twin sister Erica – a sister he never knew he had, because his unknown mother abandoned him in 1976 as a baby at Cardiff Central railway station. But his newfound sister brings with her a dire warning: his life is in great danger. When she disappears unexpectedly, he decides he must find her. That’s when his nightmare truly begins.

Police find false ID papers in a Manchester flat, bearing Davies’ photo; a flat in which a woman has been murdered. Moreover, the details of the gruesome murder mirror those exactly of the man found in the barn by DCI Rayne in 1929.

Why is Davies being followed by a strange Canadian man? Why is ninety-year-old Sir David Lambert-Chide, wealthy pharmaceutical giant, desperate to find Davies’ sister too? Who is the attractive but mysterious red-haired woman who warns him he is being hunted by the deadly Doradus? And who or what exactly is Doradus?

What becomes clear is that someone wants him dead, whilst others want him very much alive. His life in the balance, he finds he’s being hunted for reasons he cannot fathom, with no one to turn to, not knowing who to trust and caught up in dark forces many hundreds of years old.

Entering Dean Koontz territory, The King of Terrors is a breathtaking rollercoaster of a thriller that never lets up from its gripping and mystifying beginning to its shocking conclusion. With an array of well-drawn, memorable characters, its many delicious twists and turns and its complex, intelligently written, multi-stranded plot, this is D. M. Mitchell at his most ingenious, dark and profound.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay but sub-standard for this author 23 novembre 2012

Let me say first don't judge the author's talent based on this story alone. Whether you like this book or not, do read the author's other books, as they are very good. Elements of that talent are in this story- riveting premise, plot twists you didn't see coming, and interesting characters. Except here it wasn't seamless, transitions were jarring, and I felt at times I was going to need to draw up a timeline, re-read a few chapters, to keep it straight. And there were too many instances where the character basically had to say, "Okay here's how it went down..." I am glad I stuck it out and remain a Mitchell fan, and I've certainly paid a lot more for less of a story written by others, but I'm conflicted on a sequel, frankly. I'm sure I would buy it-- still a fan, but would hope I didn't feel so chronologically bumped around.

I expected a standard whodunit and was disappointed to find that the killert and victims are about people who live for hundreds of years. I feel conned by blurb that gave no indication this was not a thriller about the human race as we know it

When i started this book i knew it wouldnt be your average serial thriller and boy was i right. There was everything in here a brilliant story, murder and mystery. As i read each chapter it just kept getting better and better and better. Couldnt put it down. When i came to the end of a chapter a revelation so i kept saying just one more chapter until i finished the book. I was totally engrossed. It started with the "Body in the Barn" in 1929 and years later body in "Manchester Flat" but the stories came together so seamlessly. Magic. This is my first read by D.M. Mitchell but it will not be my last. Well done Highly recommended.

Talk about edge of the seat - this thriller has more twists and turns than a road to Twyford! Great characters, action packed pacing, enough description to make the story flow but not too much to distract. All that along with a storyline that kept my attention piqued all the way through. I usually have trouble with stories that jump around in time but Mr Mitchell seems to cover this very well and I didn't lose the thread at all.
This is not the first DM Mitchell book I have read (I have previously enjoyed Max: (a psychological thriller combining mystery, crime and suspense) ) and it certainly won't be the last. As to the question asked in chapter 50, if you can do it justice then yes, otherwise no. Either way I trust your judgement.
