Beware of the ratings

Excellant novel by one of my favorite authors! The book is basically about a man who is a criminal and gets mixed up with an evil cult. The cult makes him invisible in order to do their dirty deeds for them, but he has dirty plans of his own. A great read and I look forward to his next novel.
Beware of missing this book because you shouldn't!

There are a few authors which I can't stop myself from finishing their books within a day or two from starting them. Richard Laymon is one of those authors. His books, and Beware is another that fits the pattern, are so exciting and engrossing that I can't put it down despite the late hour. Plus it is just a quick read. I look forward to reaching one of Laymon's book in my "to read" stack.This novel involves Lacey Allen, a newspaper reporter in a small town who happens upon a series of attacks and murder in a local market. When the attacker takes a special liking to Lacey and follows her home, her life is quickly turned upside down. First she's taken hostage in her own home and tormented by the attacker who has gain mystical powers. (I won't relieve what or how so as to no spoil the surprise.) Then she escapes, finds help with an author of action books, is followed again by the attacker, and suffice to say there is more adventures and excitement culminating in a spectacular and frightening conclusion.The only thing that I had a problem with in the book was the appearence of Scott, the action book author, and Dukane, Scott's friend. Their appearence was a little too convenient of a plot device. It wasn't that bad of an event but it was a bit too nice of an event to happen. Other than that which is very easy to overlook there were no issues. I would very highly recommend the book to everyone. Well, some of the descriptions are kind of intense so if you don't like sex or violence, skip it. But everyone else shouldn't miss it.
Short title, small book - but quite a story!

I don't know about you, but to vision... fingers coming from nowhere and suddenly clutching your ankle while your in the dark -pretty much did it for me! One of the many themes, is that someonewho has the ability (can't tell you how) to be invisible! But, the fun part is when & how the other characters find out! This book was unlike any of his others! I've always been a Laymon fan, and even when you think you know what is coming it's always a pleasure to see how he's going to get you there. (as I'm sure you know if you've read any of his other books - his characters never go about things the easy way.) BEWARE... was an easy read. However, it was amazing to see just how many plot twists and challenges he had occur in such a short amount of time. I think that if you've read Laymon before, you should check out BEWARE. It's not like any of his others and it will surprise you. If you haven't read Laymon before BEWARE is a nice short one to start out with. But beware, as BEWARE quickly becomes a book you will not want to put down.
