Deep in the Darkness (2004)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
03.09.04

Deep in the Darkness (2004) Michael Laimo's second novel, DEEP IN THE DARKNESS, is a truly creepy read. I couldn't put the book down.Dr. Michael Cayle and his family move from New York City to a small New England town called Ashborough. At first everything is peaceful and quaint and the local inhabitants helpful and friendly. But Ashborough has an extremely sinister secret which dates back thousands of years. Out in the surrounding woods live the Isolates, small man-like creatures with golden eyes and reptilian claws. If anyone tries to escape from the town the Isolates tear them apart and eat them. Everyone in Ashborough is a prisoner, fearing for their lives if they even talk about the creatures. Cayle finds out that the Doctor whose practice he took over was indeed slain by the Isolates and that his job is to care for their sick. One time he's even taken to their underground lair to help deliver a child. He wants to tell his wife and daughter about this terror but is afraid of the consequences. In the end he discovers that his family has known all along about the creatures-and that the unborn baby his wife carries may not be his but a horrible cross-breed between Isolate and man. He is determined to escape. But are the Isolates just a twisted off-shoot of mankind or someTHING else entirely?DEEP IN THE DARKNESS provoked the same feeling I had when I first read Stephen King's SALEMS LOT, which is not a bad thing. There's this pervading sense of dread, which escalates until the end. It also has an H.P. Lovecraft mythos undertone, which I thought interesting. If you're looking for a good midnight read pick up a copy of DEEP IN THE DARKNESS.Available from Leisure Books at
