David Anne Û The Folly mobi

Dead are the parents of Guy Corling Propelled by both personal and professional feelings Guy starts to uncover the grotesue story of one man's folly leading him on a trail of death and terror until the final hair raising denouemen Foul things are afoot in the uaint English village of Frickley situated a few miles away from the Governments research facility at Porton Down When fast rising crime reporter Guy Corling hears that his parents have just died there mutilated badly enough the police Inspector tells him they were carried away in a plastic bag he decides to snoop around Teaming up with Victor Henthorne gamekeeper for Lord of the Manor Sir Mark Hattrell once a friend of Guy’s until woman trouble intervened though Guy is now knocking off Sir Mark’s wife he delves deeper into the mystery of The Folly the lack of rabbits in the area and the savage attacks which leave only mutilated remains Originally published in 1978 and reprinted in 1980 “The classic horror story back in print” proclaims a sticker on the cover this is thoroughly exploitative and follows the template set by James Herbert’s “The Rats” and others of that ilk with nature taking her revenge on mad scientists and their sponsors With some gruesome moments a nice tie in of the real life myxomatosis outbreak in the 1950’s and some class warfare this unfortunately suffers with pedestrian writing some key scenes are casually brushed over and lack of characterisation for the second leads Anne Sir Mark’s wife is particularly poorly served though it does have cool monsters This is my kind of book a cheesy horror novel from the 70s even if it’s designed to cash in on a trend and although it should have tried harder to hold together it was still an enjoyable and uick read I liked it a lot your mileage may vary dependent entirely on how you feel about this kind of exploitativecheesy horror goodness
