What horrors would you endure in the name of friendship? Drover and Pete are two hopeful drifters looking for a better life. Desperate for food, they break into an isolated house deep in a forest. There they accidentally shoot an old man just as the rest of his family arrive for a birthday gathering. Under intense suspicion from the family, the boys attempt to cover up the accident. But they are not the only ones keeping a murderous secret. Mistrust and deception unearth a primeval ritual as the lies give way to a terrifying truth. With time running out and a deadly force closing in, Drover and Pete’s survival rests on the strength of their friendship, but they must face some horrific choices in order to stay alive.

Review:

Mr Colin's has certainly found his feet in the literary dark world ofmystery, suspense and horror with his latest offering - Lonely House.James has a light side, just look at his other work, but having servedup (oops) the excellent The Judas Inheritance which has been made into a film set on the wonderful Greek island of Symi, he now invites thereader to the Birthday Party from Hell. This book is a feast (oopsagain) from begging to end. Driver and Pete are Steinbeckish in theirrelationship and slowly their characters are unpeeled (!). The familythey encounter proves to be equally interesting and James tantalises you by just releasing enough information on each to keep you wanting toknow more about each of them. He has mastered that technique of forcingyou to start the next chapter as you really care what happens to thesepeople - some you want to stay with you, others you may want to kill.This excellent story has a very satisfactory outcome - depending on your moral compass. You will not be disappointed if you are a fan of themacabre.
