Death Sight by David Bain
Mr. Bain’s writing is crisp and detailed throughout. Castleton’s visions are twisted and nightmarish and the author brings them to life with ease.
Hospitalized after drowning during a rescue attempt, newly graduated U.S. Marshal Will Castleton is besieged by visions of a hulking executioner torturing a bound man. A perilous race against time leaves Will broken, unsure if he even wants to join the marshals.
Escaping to his Michigan hometown, Will finds his father dying, a young woman’s ghost desperate to communicate with him, and a biker kingpin out to make a statement by taking out local law enforcement’s golden boy.
DEATH SIGHT is the first novel in the Will Castleton series, mixing crime and the supernatural. For a glimpse of Will’s future, check out THE CASTLETON FILES, featuring five adventures from diverse points throughout Will’s career.
Review by Janet Thompson:
This is my first novel to read about Will Castleton, and I will definitely purchase the others! Solid writing, great characters and back story.
David Bain has a talent for writing that keeps you on the edge of your seat, or laughing with the characters, or grieving with the characters, whatever the situation calls for.
Review by Top Knot:
Mr. Bain does not disappoint. This is a hard hitting story that weaves together many elements: gritty detective novel to the supernatural. The character development is excellent and you quickly “know” these people, and care about what becomes of them. The imagery created by Mr. Bain’s storytelling draws you in to the point that you are living the story. Can’t wait for the next one!
Review by Horror Nerd: Mr. Bain’s ‘Slightly Psychic’ detective Will Castleton is back in Death Sight. The first Will Castleton novel serves as an origin tale that shed’s light on the enigmatic lead character from Island Ghosts: A Will Castleton Adventure and The Castleton Files.
Mr. Bain brings the goods once again in this dark gritty tale of a damaged man coming to terms with the changes in his life and within himself. Fans of the previous Castleton stories will feel right at home here and like me quickly sink into Castleton’s world of loss, murder, and the supernatural.
It’s great to see the author get a chance to expand the title character and give the reader insight into his past. Mr. Bain’s writing is crisp and detailed throughout. Castleton’s visions are twisted and nightmarish and the author brings them to life with ease.
If you enjoyed the author’s previous works, I recommend Death Sight as a must read.
