#YourTurntoSuffer by @timwaggoner

Lorelei Palumbo is harassed by a sinister group calling themselves The Cabal. They accuse her of having committed unspeakable crimes in the past, and now she must pay. The Cabal begins taking her life apart one piece at a time – her job, her health, the people she loves – and she must try to figure out what The Cabal thinks she’s done if she’s to have any hope of answering their charges and salvaging her life.


‘Can I ask you a question?’

I’ve read some of the author’s fiction but many, many years ago and barely remember anything I read so reading this book was like discovering a new author. I’m a fan of horror fiction and have been most of my life and have been impressed by other titles from the publisher. I had high hopes for Your Turn to Suffer. I liked a lot about the book and some aspects didn’t fully gel for me. I loved the premise, the horror and fear created by being targeted by a sinister organisation whose intentions are not good but you know you’re innocent yet there’s little you can do to prove it or get them to leave you alone. The book has folk horror elements which I really enjoyed. There is a lot of darkness in the book but the style is very 80’s slasher horror which had a few cheesy moments that lightened the mood a little. I though the book was overly violent and gory at times but a solid read otherwise.
