    The people of High Moor are united in horror at the latest tragedy to befall their small town. As dawn breaks, the town is left to count the cost and mourn its dead, while breathing a collective sigh of relief. John Simpson, the apparent perpetrator of the horrific murders, is in police custody. The nightmare is over. Isn't it? Detective Inspector Phil Fletcher and his partner, Constable Olivia Garner, have started to uncover some unsettling evidence during their investigations of John Simpson's past - evidence that supports his impossible claims: that he is a werewolf....

    If you could sum up High Moor 2: Moonstruck in three words, what would they be?

    Bloody. Good. Listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything about this book. It's the sequel I wanted and then some. No spoilers here!


    Have you listened to any of Chris Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is the fourth story I've listened to with Chris Barnes narrating. Every time I listen, he gets better and better. He has a knack for bringing the written word to life and immersing you into the story where you forget about everything else going on around you.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Run. Don't stop. Just run.


    Any additional comments?

    The third book needs to hurry the hell up!

    When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror. John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks the town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life. It’s 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods.

    Story
    Would you listen to High Moor again? Why?

    The story is well written and highly engaging. Chris Barnes brings it to life with his top-notch performances. From start to finish, the story is gripping, edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. It's hard to push the stop button and go about regular life.


    What other book might you compare High Moor to and why?

    I'd compare it to Twilight if only to highlight what a werewolf-or any supernatural novel-is supposed to be. Werewolves are supposed to bite, they're supposed to claw, they're supposed to rip people in half with no moral conscience whatsoever. They are not supposed to protect people from vampires or a seventeen year old girl who can't develop her way out of a brown paper bag.
    High Moor delivers on the good stuff. The bloody stuff.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Tonia Brown's THE COLD BENEATH. This performances far surpasses the other.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
