The Curious Case of William Alexander Redwood by Mark Benjamin (Book Review #137)

This review was kindly requested by Mark Benjamin

This is a short horror story revealing events in the life of William Alexander Redwood, and his efforts to find out what was in his Grandpa’s secret room.

The tale begins as William wakes up under a rough hood and is tied to a chair. He doesn’t remember how he got there or why he is there. As he awakens, his body and mind begin to function again. He realizes that he is not alone. He hears noises and starts to whimper and then scream. A swift blow to the back of the head silences him once more, and that is when the reader enters the memories of William Alexander Redwood.

This short story has many twists and turns. It leaves you continually guessing at what William is hoping to find in Grandpa’s secret room. I enjoyed the suspense in this short story. The writing was dark and mysterious right up until the end.

This horror story would be the perfect for Halloween with an older crowd. Although the book is thirty pages, it still manages to have a substantial plot and many horrific scenes that would not be suitable for the younger crowd.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes to read a book in one sitting and enjoys horror stories.
