A powerful Paranormal Thriller that’s sure to have you on the edge of your seat, Smith is the scintillating new release from Sam B Miller II. Fans of Miller’s The Origin of F.O.R.C.E. series will know he’s a gifted storyteller who is particularly adept at bringing his characters to life and here he makes a genre step change to which he seems well suited.

Although a relatively quick read he writes with fluid prose and a discerning eye for detail whilst the plot is both intriguing and faultlessly executed. He understands the devices of mystery and suspense yet avoids the need to fall back on tired tropes and this combined with even dialogue and solid pacing creates riveting images for the reader. Images that lend themselves to an eclectic mix of vividly rendered characters that not only tap into our fears of the paranormal but the evil that may lie beneath it.
Fans of Sam B Miller II will thoroughly enjoy his latest release which is sure to have broad genre appeal. A superb start to an exciting new series it is highly recommended.
