Becoming David is the story of Richard, serial killer extraordinaire.
Richard is a respectable man, with a great job, a beautiful home and his own gym in the basement. Which is also where he likes to drag his victims and carve the fine fillets with which he fills his freezer. When Richard targets David and does his usual thing with the body, he thinks no more of it... until David starts speaking to him. And peering back at him from the mirror.
This was a fun, psychological novella that messed with my head. The tension and atmosphere built throughout and the ending went in a direction that surprised me. I love when that happens! (Another little surprise I noted, with pleasure, was the nod to the Hyde Hotel.)
I've not read anything from Mr. Sloman before, but hey- sign me up! Because if this is the type of story he's offering up on a regular basis, I want in!
Highly recommended to fans of psychological horror, served up with some liver, fava beans and a nice Chianti.
