Eerie Is a book written by Blake Crouch and his son Jordan and it tells the tale of Grant and Paige Moreton, children whose lives were turned upside down in an automobile accident. With their mother already dead and buried, all the kids had to rely on was their father who was turned into a “vegetable” by the accident.
Fast forward 30 years and Grant and Paige have been estranged for some time, due to Paige’s promiscuous lifestyle. Grant has become a policeman and Paige, a prostitute. An investigation leads Grant to Paige’s house and what he finds when he gets there is nothing short of… well…eerie.
I became a fan of Blake Crouch after reading “Run” which was a heart-pounding ride like no other. However, the man has a unique writing style that has taken me awhile to get used to. For dramatic effect, I suppose, he writes in incomplete sentences. It kind of looks like this. (these are not actual lines from any of his books that I’m aware of):
He grabbed the gun and pointed it at his own head.
Clicked off the safety.
Shot himself and ended this horribly-written paragraph.
Okay, so that wasn’t my best writing but you get the idea. There are incomplete sentences on almost every page. At first it bugged me, but then I realized that it’s just the way he does things and let’s face it, the man can tell a good story.
Eerie is available for $3.99 in the U.S. and 1.53 in the UK. However, I’ll let you in on a little secret, You can pick up Eerie along with five other horror novels by F. Paul Wilson, J.A. Konrath, Jeff Strand, Scott Nicholson, and Iain Rob Write for only 99 cents U.S. and UK as part of the Ultimate Supernatural Horror Box Set. Now that’s a deal!!
