    What can I say about this book! I've never read a book with an opening like it. The first chapter engages you completely. It portrays Isaac talking with Dr Brady, presumably his psychiatrist. Whilst talking we have flashbacks to the events that started this nightmare for Isaac. The description is fantastic and you really feel the despair Isaac feels. Bobbit Rock and the devil are to be feared. Don't try and be brave, just run. The town Callahan is a complete mess. Throughout the tale, it just pr What can I say about this book! I've never read a book with an opening like it. The first chapter engages you completely. It portrays Isaac talking with Dr Brady, presumably his psychiatrist. Whilst talking we have flashbacks to the events that started this nightmare for Isaac. The description is fantastic and you really feel the despair Isaac feels. Bobbit Rock and the devil are to be feared. Don't try and be brave, just run. The town Callahan is a complete mess. Throughout the tale, it just progresses into an absolute nightmare, where you want to leave, but can't. It just leaves you with despair. The shining light in all of this is Grace. Her name is ironic. The characters were brilliant. I loved the writing, it really enticed me in. I don't want to give much away, but I wish the ending linked more to the start. I also would have liked more of the bobbit rock to have featured in amongst the chaos. Brilliant read, and very much looking forward to see what this author shows us next.

Bobbit Rock by Joseph Landing is a psychological horror novel that was part murder mystery, part supernatural, part urban legend, and part allegory. This novel takes place in the fictional town of Callahan, South Carolina, which is known as the Silicon Valley of the South. It is a prosperous town that has unfortunately become the have the highest murder rate per capita in the United States. Our main character is a homicide detective trying desperately to save his hometown from whoever is committing all of these murders. He is a broken man who lost his own wife and unborn child to the hands of the killer or killers. The police are at a loss because the killers never leave behind any evidence, so the killer(s) become known as the Ghost Killers. But some of the people claim that Callahan is actually being cursed by The Wretched Man. The Wretched Man is a Carolina folktale stemming from a massive rock formation known as Bobbit Rock. Many people have attempted to climb this rock and have failed, plunging to their deaths. Some people claim that the Rock is cursed by the devil himself. What if the devil is still living on Earth and what is he has decided to take out his misery and suffering on the town of Callahan. Is there any redemption for Callahan or will the Ghost Killers continue their reign of death on the town of Callahan? Overall, Bobbit Rock was a wild ride that I could hardly wait to find out the conclusion. I do wish that we could have found out more about Bobbit Rock and the legend surrounding it. Some of the plot felt a bit rushed and I genuinely wanted to spend more time in Callahan and with our characters. I give this novel a 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Has Isaac doomed everything to the wrath of the WRETCHED MAN? This is a brilliant read. Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believeable. Great suspense and action with wonderful world building that adds so much to the story. Can't wait to read more of these. Recommend reading. I was provided an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher. This is my own honest voluntary review.

    (Won this book on Goodreads). Fast pace thriller that catches you on page one. I couldn’t put the book down and finished it in one day. A man who is chasing the one who killed his wife and child. Also how a childhood curse runs havoc in his mind and tortures him and the ones around him. A really good read.

    A story about a man and a town living under the shadow of a local urban legend/curse. This book has it all! It kept me on the edge of my seat, made me tear up a few times, and had heartwarming moments too.

    Review for 'Bobbit Rock' by Joseph Landing Read and reviewed via NetGalley for BooksGoSocial. This is the first book that I have read by this author. Unfortunately it will probably be my last unless I happened upon another in the library, in which case I may give the author another go. I was originally drawn to this book by its creepy cover and intriguing blurb which both relate well to the novel. This novel is set in South Caroline and consists of 10 chapters which are quite long. The story is Review for 'Bobbit Rock' by Joseph Landing Read and reviewed via NetGalley for BooksGoSocial. This is the first book that I have read by this author. Unfortunately it will probably be my last unless I happened upon another in the library, in which case I may give the author another go. I was originally drawn to this book by its creepy cover and intriguing blurb which both relate well to the novel. This novel is set in South Caroline and consists of 10 chapters which are quite long. The story is presented from 2 points of views and 3 time lapses. During the main storyline when Isaac is an adult I felt the plot was jumping too far ahead especially during certain scenes where the plot was getting interesting. The novel started off well and got me pulled in. I enjoyed that it started with Isaac telling who, I assume is, a psychiatrist what happened and then the plot goes to when he was a child and then an adult again. However, the storyline then seems to slow down quite a bit until it picks up at about 50% but again after a while it slowed down for me. The book was quite well written although there were a few occasions where I did get confused as to who was talking at certain times and with the time jumps. The descriptions were good and quite gruesome at some points which is a necessity in horrors!! Unfortunately, I didn't really connect with any of the characters and due to this I never felt committed to the book and didn't feel a need to pick it up. Overall this book has an interesting concept with some aspects of horror but I found it too confusing at times to really feel a connection with it. This book just wasn't for me. However, all readers are different and others may enjoy it more. If I was to recommend this book it would be too fans of crime, murder, action and mild horror. 234 pages £1.55 to purchase on kindle. I think this is a good price for this book Rated 2/5 (I didn't enjoy it) on Goodreads, Instagram, Amazon UK and Amazon.Com and on over 30 Facebook pages plus my blog on Facebook.

    I received a digital copy of this book through Netgalley. The content in this novel is a cross between “supernatural serial killer suspense” and “summer action/disaster movie.” It starts off with the main character Isaac Murphy as a patient in a psychiatric hospital recounting the legend of Bobbit Rock and Wretched Man. Legend has it that Bobbit Rock is where the Devil landed when he was cast from Heaven and fell to Earth.

The content in this novel is a cross between “supernatural serial killer suspense” and “summer action/disaster movie.” It starts off with the main character Isaac Murphy as a patient in a psychiatric hospital recounting the legend of Bobbit Rock and Wretched Man. Legend has it that Bobbit Rock is where the Devil landed when he was cast from Heaven and fell to Earth. The Devil is known as Wretched Man, because he only feels joy through the suffering of others. Isaac goes on to say that he had summoned the devil when he was young. From here the story is narrated from the near past explaining how Issac wound up in the hospital. He is a police officer trying to track down the Ghost Killers. The Ghost Killers are a mysterious group who murder their victims without leaving a trace of evidence, and who also bomb the city’s hospital. At the same time, Isaac is hunting for Eight—the man who murdered his wife and daughter. As the characters mention in the story, “It’s a blood bath in here!” Essentially the story is a violent allegory about forgiveness. The reader can feel the internal suffering of Isaac and his partners as they deal with the demise of their city. I would have enjoyed more development in the folklore of Bobbit Rock and more character encounters between Isaac, Wretched Man, and Eight. Overall the author does create an atmosphere of suspense and eeriness, which keeps the reader wanting to know what will happen next.
