Publisher's Summary

The quaint little seaside town of Granitehead seemed like a perfect place for John and Jane Trenton to start their life together. But disaster strikes and Jane and their unborn child is killed. John’s grief is total, so when he starts to see the ghostly apparition of his wife he almost welcomes this supernatural phenomenon. Yet all is not what it seems, and this sinister spirit is not Jane, but something altogether evil and terrifying. In a bid to rid him of this horrific spectre he soon finds that many more in the town have been victims of unwanted visitations. And when he discovers the body of a local busybody, impossibly impaled on a still hanging chandelier, he knows something must be done. But how do you kill the undead? As he searches for an explanation he uncovers a link to a mysterious ship, lost around the time of the nearby Salem witch trials. For three centuries the rotting wreck of the David Dark has lain beneath waves, but an awful secret is concealed in the chill waters…

I read this years ago and thought I'd give it a listen as I enjoyed it then.....it is narrated well but not as good as I remembered it to be...still worth a listen though.

Formulaic

Would you try another book written by Graham Masterton or narrated by Ian Porter?

I've read several books by Graham Masterton some of them quite good,this book isn't very good.

Would you ever listen to anything by Graham Masterton again?

Possibly

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ian Porter?

Mr Porter did an adequate job & ive no opinion on who could replace him

What character would you cut from The Pariah?

Possibly the pointless girlfriend.

Any additional comments?

This story was like a hotch potch of all the unbelievable horror & ghost stories I've read,it was incredibly silly & definitely not one I'd listen to again

A must listen.

Brilliant, well narrated and a great story. I first read this book year's ago. Even better second time around and truly given life by Ian Porter. The setting is perfect and the unfolding story works brilliantly around it.
