The Lake by Richard Laymon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review of THE LAKE by Richard Laymon
The more I read by this master of horror and suspense, the more I find to marvel at concerning his deep understanding of the psychology of the aberrant. His human “monsters” are so evil that the supernatural or paranormal isn't needed. In THE LAKE, as in DARKNESS, TELL US and the BEAST HOUSE series, human greed, selfishness, and abnormal psychology reaches horrendous extremes. But author Laymon understood so well this type of psychology that the reader is not wondering “Is that possible?” but instead hoping we ourselves never encounter such.
