Inhaltsangabe zu „In Silent Graves: The Cedar Hills Series“ von Gary A. Braunbeck

One moment, Robert Londrigan is a rising-star newscaster, devoted husband, and expectant father; the next, he's a widower in a morgue, staring at gaping holes in his daughter’s body where surgeons have harvested every useful scrap of her organs and tissue. The rock-bottom falls out from under his life when a disfigured man knocks Robert out and steals what’s left of her tiny corpse out from under his nose, and leaves a gruesome surprise waiting for him back home. Robert’s search for the disfigured man leads him through a rapidly-fragmenting reality into a chiaroscuro world and the discovery that neither his wife nor his daughter are who he thought they were. Gary A. Braunbeck’s work has earned, 7 Bram Stoker Awards, an International Horror Guild Award, 3 Shocker Awards, a Black Quill Award, and a World Fantasy Award nomination.

    This was my first novel by the author and not at all what I expected. What I expected was a straight-forward horror story, but what I got was a multi-layered story that can't be pegged as only one genre. Sometimes I felt completely overwhelmed by the complexity of the plot, but the author amazingly managed to get back on track and keep everything in line. Graves was by no means a fast-paced read. The extensive plot demands a great deal of attention and the outstanding prose must be savored rather than devoured. But patience truly pays off with this novel. I have to admit that several times I started getting bored, but I always felt an overwhelming urge to continue reading, like a strong undercurrent that carries you away. Patience really pays off with this incredible story that will still occupy your mind for some time. I read the comparatively long after word contained in this version with great interest. It was extremely revealing and the therein provided short story felt like a tasty little refill. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
