Publisher's Summary

Blake Price is the most celebrated mystery writer since Agatha Christie, but a violent tragedy from his past sends him running from his life and into a secluded cottage in the countryside. Selfishly, he drags his family with him.

Trying to connect with his melancholy son and grieving wife is difficult, but Blake tries his best to hold the strands of his life together while kidding himself that everything is okay. One day, while out looking for treasure in the field outside their new home, Blake and his 10-year old son, Ricky, find something buried in the dirt - an antique picture frame. It changes everything.

What Blake first considers a lucky find, soon reveals itself to be something far more sinister. An ancient evil has been released, and it will stop at nothing to complete its mission.

©2014 Iain Rob Wright (P)2015 Nigel Patterson

    What did you like best about The Picture Frame: A Horror Novel? What did you like least?


    This is horror at its best! No zombies or vampires or apocalypses, just great ghostly, haunting, scary stuff. This was perfect supernatural entertainment for a couple of cold and cloudy nights. Keep up the great work and I look forward to more hauntings

    "The picture frame"
    Any additional comments?

    Like all of Iain Rob Wright books, this one is captivating and quite creepy. Malefic objects make for an interesting subject and the author was able to give life to an inanimate picture frame. The characters are very believable and mostly likeable. If you want to spend 2-3 hours in a strange but fascinating world, this book is for you. It will keep you listening for a long period of time.

    Story
    "Fun and Scary"
    If you could sum up The Picture Frame: A Horror Novel in three words, what would they be?

    If I could sum up "The Picture Frame" in three words, the three words I would use would be "Creepy," "Interesting" and "Fun."


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Blake was my favorite character because he was written as a real guy with real issues. He was someone a lot of us can relate to.


    What does Nigel Patterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Having read "The Picture Frame" when it first came out, I thought I knew what to expect. I couldn't have been more wrong. Nigel adds a certain intensity to specific parts of the story that make it far more scary than it was when I read it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I won't give away spoilers, but there was a death of a very interesting character that, when narrated, was very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Nigel's voice with Iain's writing are an amazing combination. I hope the two continue working together. Nigel always produces top-notch audiobooks, and there's no denying the fact that Iain writes very well. The two make a great team.

    "The Picture Frame"

    This is a good old fashioned haunted relic story.I loved it.Nigel Patterson was a wonderful narrator,as usual.The story goes like this.Boy and dad go out with a metal detector to 'bond'.Boy finds a picture frame buried.Now WHY would someone do something like that?Maybe because it's haunted and bad things happen when you use it.
    I was given this book for an honest review.
