The Black Church by Toby Tate

This is the story of Daniel. One day he receives a tragic call informing him his father has died in a horrific accident.As he is going through his fathers belongings, he comes across a beautiful, ornate prayer rug. Daniel takes it home and hangs it on his wall. Soon he starts imagining he is seeing things in the rug, and people close to him begin to die horrible deaths. Is there something wrong with the rug or is Daniel losing his mind from grief? Now there is a race against time to find out what is going on before anyone else dies...

This was really, really good. The story took me slowly by the hand and then held on for dear life until the final climax. it was creepy, and the pace was spot on, and some of the descriptions have been seared into my brain! Although there were few characters, they resonated with me. This is a quick easy read, best read in one sitting. All in all, another blinder from Toby and from DarkFuse.
