It Lives in the Basement by Sahara Foley

Published 25th March 2018 (3rd edition)

137 pages

After a couple is reported missing, the Police get called to investigate, but with no clues to their disappearance, Lieutenant Flynn hasn’t any ideas where they are, The only hint is a notebook with the opening statement “I hope no one reads this because that means I am dead”. But who or what is behind the disappearances.

When I started this book, I did think that it was going to be a collection of short stories. However, It Lives in the Basement sets the scene for what is soon to come.  The story proceeds in chronological order as you follow Carter, who originally worked with Flynn, and Sergeant Pete Alvarez who is on his only personal demon hunt.

This was a quick read for me as I wanted to know what was going to happen. The author slowly built up the suspense as you listen to Alvarez tell his story to Carter and what starts out as eccentric ramblings soon become real. The last quarter of the book was full on and even when there was a quiet spell, you expected something to jump out on them or that feeling that they were being watching. But when it all kicked off, it was bloody and messy.

This is my first read by this author and I had purchased this book for my kindle when it was released in 2016. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to read it.

    Thank you so much for this review. I’m glad you enjoyed the story which took place in a house I lived in for many years. And the house had a basement just like in the story. Dirt floor and cardboard box leaning against the brick wall.
