Tyler is an amnesiac, drifting aimlessly across the country, struggling to regain his lost memories. When he arrives in Geddy’s Moon, a sleepy town in the middle of the Kansas wheat fields, fragments of his past begin to resurface. But as he establishes new relationships in town, and spends time with the local librarian and her son, he finds himself tormented by nightmares that grow more unsettling each night. What horrific events took place before Tyler arrived in Geddy’s Moon? And could he have brought a terrifying – and possibly supernatural – danger along with him? As the pieces of his fractured memory begin to fall into place, he fears that it may already be too late to keep himself, and those he’s begun to care about, safe from a vicious evil.
Couldn't put it down. Kept me on the edge of my seat, heart racing at times, from beginning to end. Great story!
Very Good Read
Very great debut novel. If he can continue to write books like this, I'm going to be a fan for life.
I'm a Constant Reader, and the throwbacks to King are pretty great. At one point I felt like I was reading a version of "It". There was also a portion when I felt like I was reading from the Dark Tower series, particularly "Wizard and Glass". Throw in a little Bourne Identity with the amnesia angle, and you have a book that keeps you hooked emotionally and physically frightened at the same time.
Anyways, I'm not one who easily gets scared or worked up over books, but this novel took me to places I didn't think I could go. It's almost as if it brought up old emotions from It and The Dark Tower series while working a new angle of horror in on it. What resulted were sleepless nights and a few nightmares to boot.
If you're a fan of the Horror genre, this is a must read. Congrats to the author on an amazing first novel, I'm looking forward to many more.
I had never read a lot of horror before but John Mulhall has made me a fan of the genre. Geddy’s Moon has all of the terrifying and gory elements I would hope for in a horror novel- done so well that each plot twist is a shocking surprise- but it also has relationships, human emotions so honestly written the reader can’t help but feel them along with the character, places and settings described with just the right amount of vivid detail, and dialogue that ranges from humorous to heartwrenching , but always feels authentic. This is the kind of story that lingers in your mind, and upon finishing it, I immediately wanted to reread it. Geddy’s Moon has become one of my all-time favorite books, and John Mulhall my new favorite author.
