DYING WORDS is the latest novel from the under-rated master of horror, and rest assured it's another gnawingly scary addition to the canon . . . Hutson's writing is oddly addictive, and over the years he seems to have developed something of a winning formula as far as page turners go. DYING WORDS is no exception. Harrowing and horrific in places, it is only slightly let down by the unlikely revelation at its climax: the mystery is so enjoyable that you actually forget you're reading a straight horror yarn until the supernatural element of the book leaps out at you and goes "urgh!". - SFXIf you want pacy, explicit, edge-of-the-seat storytelling, Hutson is always a good bet. Great fun. - THE GUARDIANOne of the best fiction books of the year - Dark SideShaun Hutson is significantly better than many other Brits. His short, cliffhanger-capped chapters propel you through the story at pace; Hutson takes us, breathless, over the finish line at a point where King or Koontz would still be doing their stretchi - SFX --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Nicely constructedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 May 2020
I haven’t read any of his books for nearly 40 years back when he wrote Slugs etc. But with all the crap out there atm I thought I’d read a latish offering and I wasn’t disappointed. This was nicely written and a good build up to the showdown. My only criticism is that the showdown was too short, not rushed, but the build up deserved better. I’d also guessed the culprit pretty early on but that didn’t detract from the story and the pages kept turning. A recommended tome!
Hutson for horror...Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 February 2015
Hutson fans should enjoy this story. If you know Hutson you know what you're going to get, and you won't be disappointed.
