Présentation de l'éditeur

D. M. Mitchell has been compared to Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Ruth Rendell, M. R. James, Linwood Barclay, Umberto Eco, the Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens and many others. His novel, The Soul Fixer, has been optioned for a Hollywood movie in conjunction with the famous director Dominic Sena (director of Gone in 60 Seconds, Swordfish etc). Discover for yourself why D. M. Mitchell is being regarded by some as one of the UK’s most original and exciting writers of psychological thrillers and supernatural fiction.

April 1918. David Latimer is a young man badly injured by the war, not only physically but mentally, too. Sent to Isherwood Sanatorium to recover, he meets Christopher Gilbourne, a fellow-sufferer of shell shock. They become firm friends until Christopher is discharged and is sent home to recover at his parents’ home.

But David Latimer is haunted by something far more sinister and terrifying than the war. He is haunted by a demon which comes every night to torment him. Is this demon real or a cruel symptom of his illness? He is contacted by a Doctor Harradine, who believes he can cure him of his affliction, the way he helped cure his friend Christopher Gilbourne, and so David Latimer finds himself bound for Somerset in England.

Here he meets Christopher’s parents at Gilbourne House, a crumbling old estate in the heart of rural Somerset. The Gilbournes – Sir Christopher and his wife Margaret – are in the throes of grief after losing their son, who returned to the Front and was killed, but they want to help his last good friend, David Latimer, and are paying for his treatment. Margaret is also dabbling in the occult, trying to contact her dead son, using a local young woman called Megan Attwell as a medium – a young woman who reputedly can speak to the dead.

David Latimer is soon attracted to Megan Attwell, and finds himself torn between the logic of Doctor Harradine and the occult beliefs of Megan. Moreover, he finds out she is desperately trying to clear the name of her husband-to-be William Pike, a man accused of murdering the Gilbournes’ estate manager, yet no one will believe the young man did not commit the crime.

Not only is David Latimer still suffering his demonic tormenting, but he is drawn inexorably into a labyrinthine world of the supernatural, secrets, lies and murder, and during his treatment his own dark and tragic past is dragged to the surface – a past that will have dire implications for all involved.

With his trademark detailed and fully believable characters, and intelligent plot twists and turns, D. M. Mitchell pens a brilliantly taut, multi-layered murder/mystery shot through with the supernatural and horror; a unique novel that will leave you gasping for breath from its quiet beginning all the way to its shock ending.

HASH(0x942005c4) étoiles sur 5 "Invariably he would find sleep creeping up on him during the night - the very time he feared the most..." 8 octobre 2014

"...It tossed the weapon away and reached inside his stomach with both hands and tore out his innards, disemboweling him and dropping the glossy intestines onto the stone flags." One of the creepier books I've read of late with a demon making nightly rounds to the residence of a crippled WW1 veteran whom himself seems unable to cope with his sordid past. A well-written book with great back story, this one will definitely be sticking in the cobwebs of my brain for a long time after. Very good book!

I'll be concentrating on reviewing Halloween themed book thru the month of October for the second year running so feel free to "see all my reviews" most recently if you're of a like mind and am looking for some spooky stuff this time of year.

One would think that there are no greater horrors than those which can be created in the mind of a human. But, indeed, there are much worse. We find this to be true in this gripping horror story when the demon which is supposed to be imagined proves that it is very real. This is a quick paced novel dealing with the mental hardships which are endured by a wounded soldier. The ones that are mental are bad enough, but what about the ones that are not in his mind. I enjoyed this one, particularly the unexpected ending.

An absolutely incredible reading experience. I am a fairly new reader. About 250 books in the last 3 years. This was the most fascinating and captivating book I have ever read. I have read similar stories; there are only so many plot types. But the WAY Daniel Mitchell told the story was perfect. Every sentence held my attention. I cannot wait to read his other books!

This is a very gripping and visceral story of a British veteran of the Front in France against Germany, who comes back physically, as well as mentally wounded. He also has picked up a demon.

This poor man is not only handicapped by his physical injuries, but David Latimer is visited by his demon every night. Considering what you find out about his life, it is amazing that he is still anxious to look for a solution with Dr. Harridine, a famous doctor known for working with shellshocked soldiers. He tells David the demon is in his head, based on all kinds of past history, and it can be made to go away.

The story gets much more complicated when Megan enters the picture, as she is a natural medium for the dead, claims to have spoken to his dead brother Peter, as well as telling him his demon is real. What is a poor, tortured guy supposed to think?

So much happens in this book - it reminded of an Agatha Christie novel with the tortured bits added. The way it all wound up, with many of the players ( those that were alive ) together at the end, hearing what really took place. Classic. The rest was classic Mitchell, idiosyncratic characters you either love or hate. Incredible twists in the plot, bizarre situations and phenomenal writing made me read straight through.

I have only one complaint: ( SPOILER ALERT ) I know why you stated the demon clung to David every night and then didn't, but why did David have to suffer years of getting killed every night? Supernatural beings should be able to target whoever they want, wherever they want. I realize that it would have messed with the plot, but that bothered me, hence 4 stars and not 5, which is typical for your novels which are outstanding.

Bottom Line: This is a tight, gripping read. It is a wolf in sheep's clothing. The murder mystery is not what you expect, so just hold on tight and enjoy the ride. Once you start, you won't stop! Highly Recommended...

One of the most gripping books I've read in a long time. I'm so sorry I finished it; I was enjoying the journey so much I didn't want it to end. Will be reading many more of Mr Mitchell's works. I'm not a great lover of horror stories (since reading Cujo which scared the bejesus out of when I was younger) but this was engrossing all the way.
