I recieved this book “The Canal” by Daniel Morris from “Member Giveaways” event in “Library Thing”.

Synopsis of the story:

For detective Joe Lombardi, when a body is discovered dangling beneath the Carroll Street Bridge, the first place he turns to for answers is the nearby canal. With its long history of pollution and neglect, the canal has gained a dubious reputation for ruining people’s lives — Joe’s included. But to Joe’s younger partner, Alan D’Angelo, Joe is little more than a liability, a chain-smoking failure who stands in the way of a much-coveted promotion. Determined to turn the occasion of their investigation to his favor, Alan vows to end Joe’s career by beating him to the killer and currying favor with their new boss. But when it comes to the canal nothing is ever what it seems: as Joe and Alan set out to catch their killer, they’re about to stumble across an unspeakable secret, one that’s waiting for them just beneath the water’s dark surface…

My Review:

Iam not a big fan of horror stories, and it’s been a long time, I read any of them and certainly never done a review of any horror story. So, I while I waited for this book , I really had no expectations, but the book captured my attention at the very begining, and I was pleased to find myself reading through it without wanting to put it down!

It’s not a long book and the storyline is swift with a mixture of horror+mystrey+science fiction+suspense and this cocktail doesn’t overwhelms the book instead it keeps you interested..

Daniel Morris certainly has a nice flow in his writing, his words are chosen very appropriately which makes every description very real.

I would certainly recommend this book and I would certainly wait to see future works from this author.
