BOOK REVIEW: "Dark Hunger" by Demetrius Sherman
What you don't know can kill you.
When Private Investigator Peter Sunday searches for missing people, he discovers they have been murdered. More people will be murdered--including Sunday--unless he survives a heart-pounding fight with something he can't kill.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I love, love, love private investigator stories. When you combine a PI with the horrific murders that Stephen King would write, you have a book (novella, in this case) that really intrigues me.
Mr. Sherman knows how to make his work short and sweet, without unnecessary filler text and scenes, which I really respect. Not many authors know how to do this today. He writes investigative fiction very well, you can tell he is a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but by no means does he copy him. This book is very unique, very fast and not so gruesome that fans of investigative fiction would turn up their noses, and not so technical that horror fans will be bored. He walks the line very cleanly between the two genres.
I wish I could've gotten this review up sooner, because I have actually read this twice since receiving it, haha! It was fun and very interesting. While there were moments that could have used edits (just a few repeated words, means nothing to me but the technical of my readers might want it mentioned), I found little fault in this novella.
5/5--I am definitely a fan of Mr. Sherman!
