Inhaltsangabe zu "What Hides Within"

Clive Menard is just an ordinary guy living an ordinary life. But when a talking spider crawls inside his head, things get a lot less ordinary…and people start dying.

Could an itsy-bitsy arachnid be behind the killing spree terrorizing Clive’s community? To evade a sharp detective and find a murderer among friends, Clive must shake the cobwebs loose and piece together the puzzle of his life, all without falling prey to a dark force beyond his comprehension.

A genre-twisting dark comedy, What Hides Within is an EPIC Finalist and Independent eBook Award Runner-Up for “Best Horror.”

    Creepy, but also funny

    You don't like spiders and fear they will be crawling all over the pages of this book? Don't let that keep you from reading it, though, as it is much more than just an arachnid creature feature. Though the story does start with an unfortunate incident, leading to an eight-legged lodger in Clive's head, it soon turns into kind of a psychological thriller with a dose of humor.

    The characters are multi-layered and not too likable, which makes it much more interesting to follow them along. As it turns out, at the end the spider was one of the characters I liked most, simply because it was the most honest in both its intentions and actions (the other was a little girl).

    While Clive, the main character, seemed decent enough at first, just your regular shy and unremarkable guy, I couldn't shake the feeling there was also something off about him that made him not so nice at all. Same could be said about his friend Morgan.

    At the end I recognized that the title may not only refer to the arachnid resident in Clive's head, but also to the secret thoughts hidden within each of the characters. Once revealed, they turned out to be pretty creepy as well, reminding me once again of one of my favorite sayings: the real monsters are mostly human.

    (Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
