Sleeping beauties became really quite hard work.
Not his best by a long way.
Read the upstairs room by Kate Murray Browne this week which I've really enjoyed.
Billed as a ghost story but was really character driven and interesting without ever really delivering the story promised.

Read the president is missing, first Patterson I have read in years, and probably the first one he has actually written in years. Wasn't bad.

Was ok, nothing special.
Next up is the house on cold hill by Peter James.
Hopefully it's good as I've booked to see a play of it next March.

I suspect "Sepulchre" would fall into your latter category.
Not finished it yet, but barring an amazing finale, it's crap.

Ghosts of Sleath is good. I liked The Fog and The Dark. I've nearly read them all now.....just 3 left I think
Ash, Survivor, Nobody True.....those are the only James Herberts i've not read yet.

Wasn't mad keen on the fog, decent premise and beginning but lost its way.
Ash is a great romp, best thing he wrote.
Have you read any Stephen laws?

:mrgreen: we have this conversation every few years!
Yep I’ve read all Laws stuff.
Got a few more on my “to read” pile, picked up a few at “Britain’s biggest second hand bookshop” in Alnwick
