Book Review - Tap, Tap by David Martin

What if your best friend started killing your worst enemies? For Roscoe Bird, this nightmare becomes a reality when an old childhood friend comes knocking at his door.

Peter Tummelier talks about past hurts and old enemies as if time has stood still. But when bodies start turning up, murdered in horrifying ways, suspicion is placed on Roscoe. And Roscoe knows the one person-the only person-who could have committed these deeds.

But the question is why? How can he reach into the twisted depths of Peter's mind to understand his diabolical motives? And how can Roscoe clear his name as the prime suspect of the murders? But most of all, how can Roscoe avoid becoming Peter's next victim-the victim Peter has been waiting for...

My thoughts:

This book was a definite change of pace from what I usually read. It was a creepy surreal story of friendship and revenge. There were actually parts of this book that made me laugh out loud, even though the story was shocking and even disturbing at times. The character Peter Tummelier, friend of Roscoe Bird's who vowed to get revenge on whomever drove Roscoe's father to commit suicide, made a very poor Vampire, which added a comedic twist to the story. I would have liked a better ending to the story as well....I kind of felt like I was left hanging. All in all, this was an entertaining read. I'm going to check out some of his other books.
