The Dunfield Terror - by William Meikle - This book certainly live up to it's title
First, let me point out that William Meikle is a terrific story-teller. If you haven't discovered this fact for yourself yet, correct that situation as soon as possible. I have yet to be disappointed by one of his tales.
The Dunfield Terror is as complete a horror story as I have read in 2015. As if fighting to keep the roads open over the fifteen kilometer stretch from Trinity to Irving Station in Canada's Newfoundland Province during a full blown blizzard isn't tough enough, surviving what's hidden in it's midst will take a miracle.
It all began 60 some years ago with the goal to render a battleship invisible. Hell, what could possibly go wrong there?
"They want a weapon--and they won't believe me when I tell them that I have no idea how to build it. You saw what happened in Dunfield--it was a bloody accident--a terrible, terrible accident. All I did was put the pieces in the right order, at the right time, in the wrong place."
Told through a series of journal entries from the past and present day events, The Dunfield Terror effectively takes the reader through a terrifying night fighting the elements and what they hide, while slowing revealing the secrets of the past.
One of my favorite reads so far in 2015, The Dunfield Terror is available now in limited edition hardcover, paperback and ebook formats from Darkfuse. If you subscribe to Amazon's Kindle Unlimited you can read this one at no additional charge and if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow this book and read it as your monthly selection through the Kindle Owners Lending Library.
