Shallcross: The Blindspot Cathedral, A Novel by Charles Porter (Book Review #1199)


Shallcross is an existential thriller fiction and a perfect tale for Halloween and horror fans. The story begins with Aubrey Shallcross and his feelings of the absence of routine since he has sold his business and is retired. Things have lost their purpose, and so he has more time on his hand to find comfort from the fear of anxiety in the familiarity of a Triple Suiter.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Things take a slight turn when we are introduced to this Triple Suiter, and you get to see how influential his mind’s other voice can be. Aubrey attempts to manage and maintain his sanity by keeping himself indulged with his passions, and when he encounters love, the life he leads finds a different meaning.

The literature is dark and twisted. It has the exact kind of mystery and amusement to keep you wanting more. Aubrey’s personality is indeed the catalyst for the premise, and although he has many voices in his head, he seems to still be happy.

This is a fascinating and well-written story. It is apparent how much the author has cared about creating it, and if you are a fan of this genre, you won’t be disappointed.

I recommend this book to those who like to read fiction thrillers.
