In Shatter Point by Jon O'Bergh, the town of Pasadena is the haunting backdrop to this tale of feuds, dangerous dares and horror stories of the past. Donna and Phil have just moved into the neighbourhood and share a love of everything dark and eerie. Phil and Donna’s son, Billy, decides to create a place of simulated torture called the Horror Place, where volunteers can experience extreme terror. The videos are then posted online for viewers to watch. Jada manipulates her timid new boyfriend, Asher, to visit the Horror Place and what takes place makes Asher seek revenge for all the times he has been bullied in his life. Meanwhile, Donna's neighbour, Ruth, has strange visitors to her home at night, causing weird occurrences; are they real or a figment of her imagination? Could it be her late father or something more sinister? The Horror Place is going to live up to its name in a final showdown of extreme violence, but who will be its victim?
If you enjoy a story that has twists, turns and surprises throughout, then Shatter Point by Jon O'Bergh is a perfect book for you. The way the writer has woven such detail into his characters and story lines is amazing. Each character is well constructed, especially the violent Billy and manipulative Jada. The author is a master of suspense that is so realistic it touches every one of your senses and gives you haunting goosebumps. A superb story from start to finish with tension, excitement, and thrills throughout. The occurrences in Ruth’s house were truly spooky. The ending was not what I was expecting. I would never have guessed the true killer. When I thought I knew what was going to happen, the author would take me in another direction. This is a perfect story for anyone who likes a good horror and whodunit mystery.
