OTTAKAR'S EDINBURGH - reviewed by Gillian Macdonald

I don't like horror films and I certainly don't like to read horror books but I read "Lord Loss" and found I couldn't put it down. After Grubbs witnesses the horrendous murders of his family, he is hospitalised and finds himself unable to function normally or start to make a recovery. Eventually he is visited by his enigmatic uncle Dervish who offers him hope and a new life with him. Plenty of gore and excitement will thrill horror fans, especially fans of Shan. The master of children's horror is at his blood-curdling best.
