A ghost virus infects clothes that then attack the people of Tooting with grizzly results. Why are they being attacked? Why,are they infected? A good tale
The concept is original and unusual. To begin with, I was excited to be reading the book. The initial instances made a degree of sense and I was intrigued as to where the plot would lead. The later parts didn't make the same sort of sense, even though there was an explanation. And the ending? Well, what was going on there?
It has the feel of a usual crime novel to begin with, which makes what happens feel even more weird. This was done well, but the sections between the gory scenes didn't really maintain the sense of menace they should have. Lighter moments are good for pacing in dark fiction, but it felt like a different book.
Nuggets of research sat exposed upon the ground of the plot instead of being realistically buried in
the story. The ethnic diversity of characters was a lot better than in many books, but it at times felt forced. The impression I'm left with is that the gory scenes were well thought out and worked on, but that most of the remainder didn't get the polishing and work it needed. It fell flat from my initial expectations.
Overall, the book does hold the reader's interest, due to the unusual story. It's definitely not for everyone, but it will certainly find some fans.
I received my copy through NetGalley. My views here are my own.
I certainly enjoyed the concept of haunted clothes as it is so different to the horror novels I have read in the past. Be warned though. This book is not for the faint hearted. I had to devour this book in one sitting. I needed to know how it would end for the detectives involved in the investigation.
If you enjoy gruesome and gory, you will enjoy Ghost Virus.

Sorry Graham but your Kate Maguire plots are good reads as is Beartice Scarlet but this new route for you just didn't come off, all gore and no plot.
