CHANCE PETER DUDGEON

PRAY SHE SEES YOUR PAIN BEFORE HE ENDS IT

A missing convict, a young woman assaulted and killed, an old man murdered in his home. All in different parts of London. With eight million inhabitants, bad things happen to good people all the time. Only nine-year-old Cassie Janus knows there’s a connection, because she is the killer … in her nightmares at least. Cassie has the rare ability to unearth the darkest emotions of others. She sees a past they would rather keep hidden and a future too horrific to comprehend.Perhaps the killer can be stopped. If only she can make someone – her mother, her friend, her teacher – believe. Her words are dismissed, her sanity questioned. She knows they’ll believe her in the end … but by then, they’ll be facing death.

MY REVIEW
When I read that Peter Dudgeon started writing at the age of fourteen, inspired by Stephen King’s early novels, I knew I was in for a thrilling ride through out reading Chances. The doll on the front certainly looks a little creepy and edged me to read it at once. The nice short chapters keep you turning pages after pages. The story is dark and creepy it make you want to read on to find out what will happen next. A missing convict, a young woman assaulted and killed, an old man murdered in his home. Bad things happen to good people all the time. Cassie has epilepsy and suffers seizures from time to time. Only nine-year old Cassie Janus knows there is a connection, because she is the killer in her nightmares at least. Cassie’s doll Katie was he only companion. Sometimes Cassie would cuddle Katie as she drifted towards sleep, but one night she pinned Katie’s eyelids down and scribbled on them pressing so hard that Katie’s eyelid refused to open. When Cassie mummy is hospital Laura Robinson notices the most creepiest doll in Cassie wardrobe while getting some clothes for Cassie to stay with her.  So much happens in this well written creepy tale.
