The Book Corner 9/5/19: Brian Kirk’s Will Haunt You

Loleta Abi

Will Haunt You by Brian Kirk Flame Tree Press 2019.

Amazon’s blurb: You don’t read the book. It reads you. 

Rumors of a deadly book have been floating around the dark corners of the deep web. A disturbing tale about a mysterious figure who preys on those who read the book and subjects them to a world of personalized terror.

Jesse Wheeler―former guitarist of the heavy metal group The Rising Dead―was quick to discount the ominous folklore associated with the book. It takes more than some urban legend to frighten him. Hell, reality is scary enough. Seven years ago his greatest responsibility was the nightly guitar solo. Then one night when Jesse was blackout drunk, he accidentally injured his son, leaving him permanently disabled. Dreams of being a rock star died when he destroyed his son’s future. Now he cuts radio jingles and fights to stay clean.

But Jesse is wrong. The legend is real―and tonight he will become the protagonist in an elaborate scheme specifically tailored to prey on his fears and resurrect the ghosts from his past. Jesse is not the only one in danger, however. By reading the book, you have volunteered to participate in the author’s deadly game, with every page drawing you closer to your own personalized nightmare. The real horror doesn’t begin until you reach the end.

That’s when the evil comes for you.

My Review: Jesse Wheeler is given a book by his friend. That book turns his life into a living nightmare. He finds himself trapped in the sewer by weirdos. Sent to a bizarre hospital. Put through the ringer as he is forced to drink again after being sober for years. When he gets home again, he finds his wife and son gone. On her phone, are messages of him bragging about cheating and being on the bend again. His AA sponsor takes him to a cabin to dry out. Things go worse from there.

This book makes you wonder if this book really does lead to nightmares and another world. Bizarre and repulsive, it draws you in and you take a ride into an experience you won’t soon forget. All the while, your left wondering if reading the book is a good idea. Because, what if they come for you next?
