Under the Ice: The Monkey's Paw revisited
“Out at the edge of the ice, something dark appeared, rising from the water and then closing downward on the frozen surface. I squinted. And was sure it was a human arm.”
David and Bobby are a pair of twin brothers both in love with the same woman. But on a trip to Finland, the matter gets resolved in the worst way imaginable – Bobby drowns in the icy waters just outside Helsinki. Two years later, David is still in that city and living with Krista, when a supposed magic artifact comes into their possession. And when David makes a wish upon it, dark things from the past begin resurfacing. Things like old-time sins and misdeeds. Like guilt and awful memories.
And things like Bobby himself, two years drowned and trapped under the ice ... but still here with us.
A chiller in the tradition of ‘The Monkey’s Paw.’ Under The Ice was voted one of Horror Novel Reviews’ TOP TEN BOOKS of 2013.
“Under the Ice is a stellar tale … brilliant, well thought out and perfectly delivered by Tony Richards, who understands the balance that must be upheld between fantasy and reality. The story boasts numerous layers and a final curveball that’s going to leave readers pleased. Whether you opt to label this one a revenge tale, a ghost story or a zombie tale, matters not. It’s original, creative, and successfully blends all of the aforementioned classifications, wrapping a plethora of ideas into one novel. This is an excellent read, and you want to get your hands on it as soon as possible!” – Horror Novel Reviews.
“Richards conjures a wonderful atmosphere of cold and cold beauty, coupled with some wonderfully drawn characters. From beginning to end I couldn’t put this book down. The story powers along and is told with great style by an author at the height of his powers. He’s every bit as good as the best you’d care to mention. Download Under the Ice now. It absolutely cannot be missed!” – Matt Williams.
