Nice work, you two. It's interesting to see the different versions.

Very nicely done Chaos and e_taylor! The US PB 1st was the first Slade book I bought. I remember the bookstore, and seeing the cover facing out....picked it up to read the back blurb and have been hooked ever since. I bought a used copy of it last year as I long ago misplaced my original copy.

Dreab good chap, i would take your advice if it wasn't for one thing :oops:

You remember me saying i had read some of these books many years back but was unsure which and so on, well, damn, damn and damn my mind !! I have just read up to where Mr. Ohm has set his bomb off and is admiring the 'floating hearts'...yep you guessed it, i had a moment of clarity, all the 'different' killers in this book are in fact one and the...you know the rest obviously, double :oops:

I'll still read it though :lol:

Yeh re-read them so you can help with any inane questions i may ask ha,ha.

Even though i know the twist i can't remember the hows and whys so i suppose the story is still 'fresh' instead of stale :)

Ok. Finished "Ghoul" yesterday and may i say what a damn fine book it was despite me remembering the twist early into starting the book. I will say that even knowing the twist doesn't take anything away like it would, say, in a film or something because you can 'see' all the pieces and clues coming together.

Ok, for questions...

The copy-cat, does he make another appearance in future books, do we see him refine his 'craft' ?

The "Me/Myself" tie up in the epilogue...to be honest i would have thought it to be tacked on in a lesser author but it fit right in this book...do we get to know what happens ? It appeared Deborah could have jumped off the balcony ? If not then does her and Zinc's offspring have a possible place in being a future protagonist / psycho in coming books...?

The copycat is one of those untidy threads in life. We never see him again (but he reflects the real-life incidents at the end of the book, and WHITECHAPEL, if you like).

As for the rest, wait and see.
