Today's review is on Dark Passage by Griffin Hayes
I never look
at reviews written by other readers until I myself have finished reading
the book in question, and have my own opinion formulated. So when I
looked over the reviews for Dark Passage, I was surprised to find a
common theme. Like the main character, many readers themselves suffered
from a sleep disorder of some sort, including myself.
Barrett's childhood was anything but average. His mother, who had OCD,
controlled every aspect of his life. Even his fears. He cannot walk in
the middle of the room, his food is excessively wrapped in plastic
wrap, and he can never, ever go into the room where "the monster" is.
But those times and fears are all behind him now.
authorities found Tyson near death with a bag over his head, he was
taken away from his parents and placed in foster care. Eventually he
fell in love, married, and had a son whom he loved very deeply.
Everything seemed to be going along perfectly until the nightmares
He hasn't slept in weeks, his marriage fell apart, and
he'll do anything to get his life back together. But when he becomes a
guinea pig for an experimental PTSD drug, everything takes a turn for
the worst. Now he'll have to face his greatest fear of all to save
himself and the ones he loves.
As with Malice, Hayes delivers a
fantastic story. Vividly descriptive characters weave a web of horror
and mystery that will keep you intrigued until the very end. Murder, mayhem, and definitely things that go bump in the night. And though
I thought Malice was exceptional, my copy of Dark Passage had so many
mistakes that I'm just a bit disappointed.
