Review - The Count by David-Jack Fletcher

Synopsis -

When Sam’s ex, Danny, winds up gutted beyond recognition, Sam has no memory of where he was at the time. He can only remember the strange comfort of his new house. The endless ticking of a clock he can’t find. The bloody knife he woke up holding the morning Danny was killed.

Sam’s guilt over Danny is undercut by the endless ticking, a growing desire to drink from the dead, and anonymous GPS pings that lead him to corpses. The stench of them rotting makes him hungry.

He begins to feel the ticking inside him, feeding a darkness he’s long ignored. It compels him to take what he wants, regardless of the price. When he begins to act on his bloodlust, the ticking leads him to the death of a loved one.

The clock begins to point to more of Sam’s friends and family, begging for their blood. Fuelled by a deep desire to feed, and compelled by the power of the ticking clock, how far will Sam go to get what he wants?

Review -

You always want to feel comfortable in a new home, but what if the house in question makes you feel comfortable by making you do unimaginable things?

That is the situation that the main character, Sam, is thrust into after moving into a new place following a breakup. It's not long before he is performing horrible acts brought on by an incessant ticking in the house and GPS coordinates sent mysteriously to his phone.

The Count tells the tale of a descent into madness and hints at other realms that might well be bleeding into our world. It's violent and bloody and a lot of fun for horror fans.
