Screams in the Woods by Michael R Martin
Published: October 15th 2013
Genres: Science Fiction, Suspense, Crime
One rainy Monday morning, private detective Christine Lynch is presented with an untitled lever arch file to review.
It contains the detailed research of a 19th century local mining accident.
The authors have been missing for over a year.
Two unrelated facts, surely?
Then she reads the file…
This story started strongly. I really enjoyed the intrigue and mystery that was built up through the story. There was a real feeling of tension which was built up through the narrative, and a sense of uncertainty about who could be trusted which was nurtured and expanded as the story progressed.
For me, the story got a bit wobbly and convenient at the end. All in all though, it was a decent mystery/suspense novel.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

He has worked as a design engineer, a volunteer IT tutor, a medical records officer and is currently a freelance computer animator.
The aim of his writing is to create imaginative, supernatural thrillers populated by believable characters and realistic settings.
His influences are many, but he draws particular inspiration from the works of Nigel Kneale, H P Lovecraft, R Chetwynd-Hayes, Stephen King, Alan Garner and M R James.
