Alnpete Press is pleased to announce Alison Buck's latest novel
Buck's writing gives us a fresh perspective on horror.
She combines timeless themes of good and evil
with a very contemporary concern for genuinely believable characters.
Abiding Evil is a sinister tale informed by psychological insight,
wit and a style of writing that breathes life into the protagonists.
This is a dark story that can make your blood run cold and yet also touch your heart.
It is a chilling book which will appeal as much to fans of psychological drama
as it will to lovers of traditional horror.
A sleeping menace is roused deep in the darkness
of the forest. For decades it grows, biding its time, reaching out to
tug at the ordinary lives of those living beyond the shadow of the trees.
Buck, an exciting and strong new voice in fiction.

Phil Kelly, DeathRay Magazine
