  1. Dark, sinister and very cleverly written.I received an Advance Review Copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.I had already read Maria Savva s Coincidences, a family drama, which I loved and gave 5 stars, so I was keen to read Haunted I was a bit worried it would be a horror, as I am quite squeamish, but I need not have worried The subject matter is very dark, and the author manages to make the reader feel sympathy for the protagonist, Nigel, when I wouldn t have thought this was p [...]


  2. Haunted is exactly what you ll be after reading this book The theme ran like an undercurrent in my brain for days.Nigel has an explosive temper causing him, in a moment of rage, to act in a way that changes his life forever Given the type of person he is, Nigel shouldn t be particularly likable Yet, somehow his character elicits sympathy Through Nigel s life, we see the destruction caused by one moment in time His mind is shattered, dark and desolate, and we, the reader, are right there with him [...]


  3.

  5. I was lucky enough to read this story in advance of publication and I loved it from beginning to end.I really enjoyed the in depth character building so important to a story where I could see into the minds of each of them, making for great reading The plot was dark and clever and kept me guessing until the end.The story gave great insight into the emotions of mankind, where guilt can create an obsessive and insane point of view We can wonder what we d do in the circumstances given in the plot a [...]

  7. This wasn t what I was expecting at all from a book called Haunted the ghosts and spectres are all in the mind of the main character, Nigel.I thought Ms Savva wrote Nigel s increasing paranoia very well you can t help feeling sympathy for him and I loved the way he, at times, seemed quite normal which brought it home how normal your average murderer can seem I thought the way he couldn t control his temper was portrayed extremely well, too.Unusual, interesting subject unusual, interesting book N [...]


  8. I enjoy reading stories from Maria Savva I finished this last year but forgot to do my review I m not good at writing long winded reviews, so this will be short I loved the story, it kept me turning the pages, and I didn t want to put the book down.


  9. In the first chapter of Haunted by Maria Savva we meet Nigel, a shell of a man in his fifties Everything he does, says, thinks or touches is tainted by his private hell Nigel Price killed a woman 20 years earlier and got away with it.That is it, the whole story revolves around those facts Yet, it is not tedious, a psychological thriller like this one, if handled incorrectly, can be boring and seem like whining, not in this case, it is easy to feel the burden of regret, bad memories and the loss [...]


  10. A chilling insight into the mind of a murdererThis is an excellent book you won t be able to put down Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be a murderer Not a sociopath with no remorse, but a rather introverted person with a fiery temper that he s never been able to control, who one day takes things too far and regrets it ever after This is the territory that Maria Savva tackles in Haunted Nigel is a rather geeky guy, perhaps lacking in charm, but not essentially evil One day he kills, i [...]

  13. I normally don t read this genre of book, so for that reason, I wasn t comfortable giving it 5 stars I don t know how it really compares to other in the same classification However, I m glad I stepped out of my normal comfort zone to read Ms Savva s novel The characters were well developed and believable, and I could actually visualize the things Nigel saw and experienced I generally have a hard time visualizing things, so I consider Ms Savva s ability to produce images in my mind to be astoundi [...]


  14. Wow Now that my heart has finally stopped pounding, I can tell everyone how much I enjoyed this book This one s going on my keeper shelf I so admire Ms Savva and her ability to keep the suspense going with this awesome page turner Take my advice though, plan on reading this in one sitting because you won t be able to put it down It s one of those books that keeps running through the back of your mind, making you anxious until you can get back to it and find out what happens next I highly recomme [...]

  17. I was gripped by this book and , especially with the introduction of Kelly, which added a new dimension to the story I enjoyed second guessing the plot, but the ending still surprised me This is a skilfully written psychological drama the author builds tension and explores the nature of paranoia, incorporating twists and turns in a plot that keeps the reader guessing I will be reading by Miss Savva Highly recommended.


  18. I really enjoyed this book couldn t put my kindle down Nigel Price is an ordinary man Except he has an explosive temper Which is always getting him in trouble In a moment of road rage his life is forever changed on a dark stormy night on a little traveled road Nigel did something that will haunt him forever A must read if you love psychological suspense stories I look forward to reading books by Maria Savva


  19. Maria Savva s novel, Haunted, takes you on a journey deep beneath the human psyche Pray that you never have to go through such an experience in life.



  20. It s very easy for fans of murder mysteries, thrillers, and police procedurals to become hardened to the realities of a murder The largest section of my local library is dedicated to this genre Murder is an everyday experience for television watchers and movie goers Most of the murderers are portrayed as very dark and evil The stories are usually told from the point of view of the persons trying to bring them to justice Haunted gives us a fresh and unique perspective on murder It connects our se [...]


  21. Well written but I found the incessant guilt and paranoia of the main character Nigel soul destroying Perhaps that is because the author portrayed his fragile state of mind so effectively but it was much too dark for me Nigel was a loathe some but also very pitiful character and going to the depths of mental decline with him left me feeling less impressed by the author s undeniable ability and genuinely exhausted I felt drained by the end and can only imagine how she must have felt when she fin [...]


  22. This was a good read and it keep me reading till I finished it However everyone is different in what you read Sometimes the title will fool you but than again the title is what draws me in to read a book and of course if the first 10 15 pages catch my attention.
