"Few surprises but still worth reading"
Many Hollywood insiders say that Oscar winning film
producer Teddy Logan's best production is his twenty years
old daughter Daniella. He runs and owns Oxford Films along
with his partner Alan Stanley until the day Teddy dies in a
car accident. Daniella will inherit his half of the film
company when she turns twenty-two.
However, just before her beloved father died, Daniella
noticed a strange looking box inside Teddy's safe. That
item is no longer in the safe nor is a weird book entitled
The Bible Decoded. Daniella looks for the missing two
items but soon observes her father's friends perform
rituals at his gravesite. Apparently, this group of
successful business moguls believe their success comes
straight from the bible via the sacrifice of their first
born. Though he made the pact, Teddy could not kill his
cherished flesh and blood, but others try.
Though the plot seems obvious from almost the opening
act and the twists are very few, readers will enjoy Ramsey
Campbell's latest thriller, PACT OF THE FATHERS. The story
line is fast-paced and the heroine is an intrepid
individual who the audience will find delightful. The
support cast adds depth even though some of the villains
are not the sharpest knife in the draw. Still, Mr.
Campbell keeps his audience on edge throughout this action-
