The Deeper Roots of Evil – FIVE STAR Reviews

The Deeper Roots of Evil is already attracting some great, FIVE STAR reviews! 

After reading The Roots of Evil, the first in this sequel, I was eager to find out what was going to happen next in the creepy village of Ropely and the wonderful people that reside therein. My favourite being Dotty Dingle, a batty old lady with her shopping trolley who is rather central to the continuing saga. The author initially draws you into this book by concentrating on the characters and the personal relationships that arise between them, very cleverly making you form an emotional attachment to them before one by one they reach a grisly demise. Who will be left? What atrocity will happen next? Throughout the book you’re gripped with the notion that something dreadful is about to occur, so you have to keep reading but you’re scared to turn the page as you don’t know whose grim termination you’ll discover!! Exciting and horrifying in equal measures. Another page-turner from the amazingly gifted David E Gates. I’m already looking forward to the next in the series…” – Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 April 2020
