What hides within?
Well, within the covers of this book, a rather dark story. I didn't find it too horrific, the gore was kept to a minimum too. In fact, in parts it was quite amusing and some of the banter even had me smirking as I read.
Chester was an interesting character. Quite multi-faceted, with loads of room to morph into what the story needed, yet (and I can't really believe I'm going to say this...) rather believable too.
I would have liked the envelope to be pushed a little more, it could have been darker and more sinister with ease, yet it didn't go there.
The multiple storylines mixed well and were interwoven neatly. None of them seemed too obvious, were mostly plausible and quite intricately written to ensure reader enjoyment.
I don't have a fear if spiders, but I didn't feel that the story had a strong theme of them. I suppose that the story might creep out those with a phobia, but for me it was a neat little twist.
Ultimately, I enjoyed this one, despite not being entirely sure if I would. Try What Hides Within if you'd like a bit of dark humour and a bit of spider related horror mixed with a murder and crime mystery.
