If you enjoy books, you can't deny that when you pick up a book, somewhere inside you a tiny voice says "Hell, I could write one too!" and you start peppering your internal Great Canadian Novel with sex, intrigue and unicorns. With rainbows. Shooting from their eyes. I digress. Tina, from Bookshipper, got herself The Killing Circle about an author who's struggling to get out that "one" book, but discovers more than he bargains for in Angela, his writing club associate. Here's a cut from Ann's review:
Patrick Rush is an ordinary guy, who is down on his luck. His wife just recently died and somehow, his writing career at the paper seems to be on a downward spiral. He longs to write "that" novel, but somehow does not seem to have much to say. In an attempt to get some ideas and rejuvenate himself, he joins a writing circle - which at first glance appears to be a mistake - until he meets Angela. Angela is a mother, but she tells tales of this Sandman - a horrible man who comes into the night and does horrible things. Rush finds himself fascinated and returns, week after week to hear more. The only problem is - the Sandman appears to be real...
