The Picture Frame is the story about a famous writer who lives out in the country with his wife and son. One day he sets out with his son to look for treasure, but they end up finding more than they bargained for. They dig up an old picture frame and when they take it home to clean it up and put a picture inside, things begin to go very wrong. The picture frame is much more than it seems, and the little family ends up fighting for everything they hold sacred, including their lives.
Anyone who regularly follows this blog already knows how I feel about Iain Rob Wright’s books. I love them all and The Picture Frame is no different. The characters in this book are real people dealing with their own issues. You want to see this family escape the horror that befalls them but instead, the story just keeps getting more bizarre and creepy. Lucky for us, he also sets up the end to get us ready for the next in the series. I’m ready. I love Wright’s writing style and with each book, I feel like we get to learn a little more about him. The editing is brilliant and the story moves along smoothly, without any hiccups.
As a bonus, at the end of the book, there are two short stories written by Matt Shaw. Each one is brilliant, but I think I like the first one the best. You’ll have to check them out to see what I mean.
The Picture Frame is currently available on Amazon for purchase and as part of Kindle Unlimited. It’s a short, easy read, and well worth the time and money.
