The Knowing by David Graham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review of THE KNOWING by David Graham
A direct sequel to author Graham's terrifying thriller, THE SCREAMING, this novel can nevertheless stand on its own, as sufficient backstory is drawn in throughout so those who may not have read THE SCREAMING can still thrill to the chills and scares of THE KNOWING, as well as enjoying the author's subtle humour and tugging of heartstrings among the characters.
After EM radiation from cell phones and the Internet had been proven to cause adolescent psychosis, the UK banned mobile phones and Internet access, while the US shoveled all adolescents into protective care (read, asylums) under executive order. The silencing of electromagnetic radiation throughout the UK has allowed an influx of “other” energies, including witchcraft, which is on a steep rise. Kansas City, Missouri, police sergeants Dale Franklin and Steve Abrams, who had been instrumental in helping identify the causes of the adolescent psychosis crisis in the U.S., travel to London and discover a new conspiracy, one which reaches to MI5 and possibly to the Queen.
