In an isolated corner of a deserted hotel,writer Larry Dunbar finds a naked female with a stake through its heart...and he begins to unravel the mystery with frightening consequences!
classic Laymon!!! If you like good, scary, VERY graphic horror, you will love Laymon.THe Stake is not your classic vampire tale,but is a very good fireside read..with all the lights, the door double-bolted and the dobermans off the leash...
Book starts off with a bang, gets really boring and pretty stupid and then ends with another bang. Without being too wordy, that sums it up. I have grown to know that Laymon is one of those authors that can keep my interest but rarely does he satisfy me. He annoys me, like a fly buzzing around that you just can't catch. This experience was no different.
If you're a fan of Richard Laymon then this book won't disappoint you. It's got it's share of suspense, horror, and of course sex. It's a rather lengthy book at over 500 pages but don't let that stop you. It's a real page turner. I finished it in record time.
